Hello friends! So not only do I love scrapbooking, but I also love to cook and bake. I get a ton of recipes from Jenny @ Picky-Palate. This women has some serious skills in the kitchen. I frequent her site because she is sure to have a new ooey gooey dessert recipe that includes CHOCOLATE! Today I made her Ice Cream Sundae 4 Layer Chocolate Cake. There was a lot of mmmmmming and eye rolling going on during dsessert today.
This cake is SUPER easy and fast to make. Jenny used chocolate shaving's as on the outside of the cake but took a short cut and used chocolate chip frosting this time.
I don't have a sister and so if it's true we always want what we can't have, I've always wished I'd had a sister. Preferably an older sister from whom I could borrow clothes, would do my hair and give me advice.
Luckily my little E has one. R is the best big sister I know. She looks out for E and I love to hear her giving her advice on friendships when they think I can't hear them. Most every night since Munchkin learned to read she's read her little sister a bedtime or anytime story or two. I love when E brings home drawings from school or daycare of her and her big sister, there are always hearts and the words, "I love my sister". The pictures were taken when E was 5 months old and R was 4
In case you may not have noticed I used a ton of pearl accents. They are my new favorite products.
I love the beauty stickles and glossy accents add to embellishments.
Not only do I LOVE scrapbooking but I have a couple of other LOVES. Food being #2, & shopping #3. I've decided to not limit my blog to posts only pertaining to scrapbooking. Here is my first non-scrap post about one of my favorite sandwiches. I usually make this one a lot in the Summer ( I have a favorite winter sandwich too)
Here are the ingredients. I think the italian dressing & tomatoe are what really make this sandwich or 'sammich" if your from the south. lol
I sure wish it had a been Dwayne "Tooth Fairy" Johnson! But no such luck. LOL Anyway, last night both of my girls lost a tooth. For E it was her first so we had to celebrate. R has had the tooth dangling around in there for about a week and finally let me snatch it because she didn't want to be outdone by her little sister. Amongst all of the excitement I forgot to check and see if the the "toothfairy" had any cash! Well she didn't. First response was panic and then trying to rationalize going to Wal-Mart at 11 pm to get cash. Luckily the Fairy side kick had cash-problem solved. E hasn't fallen asleep so fast in such a long time!
But lucky for me I have one, well a few actually but today I'm scrapped about one. Her name is Tina. We met back in 05 when I moved to TX by of military PCS move. I decided to open a home daycare and she was assigned as my mentor! LUCKY ME! She's an awesome provider, who had tons of experience and patience. On top of that she was a Creative Memories consultant. In no time I was at her kitchen table any given Sunday, country music playing in the background ( I don't usually listen to country) and brownies on the snack table. I sure do miss be able to hop in the car and head over to her house for a crop. But hopefully we'll be able to scrap together again soon oneday.
I was also looking to use Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl and these paper fit perfect. I couldn't resist adding in little Crate Papers Paper Doll accents. That line is my current favorite. I also did what I call EXTREME stitching. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn ou since it was my first time using the thick thread but I like it! Hope you do too!
