Meow

This paper line called Meow from My Mind's Eye is adorable!
For my cover I used one of the Journal Cards and matted it on black cardstock.

This is the second book that I've create where I have made the spine a little larger. 
I like it wider so that more dimensional items can be added.

I used some of the chipboard pieces on the back cover.
This book measures 6-inches by 5-inches.
There are 12 pages and 11 pockets with photo mats.

I alternated the photo mats using gray and pink cardstock for the pockets on the pages.

I added a few flip photo mats on some of the pages.

I still have enough paper left to create one if not two more books depending on size I choose to make.

One Pot Sausage and Peppers Pasta


I saw this recipe come up in my Facebook feed last weekend. I watched the video, it peaked my interest so I clicked the link to the recipe. I'm always looking for something different for my workday lunch. I don't always take something hot to eat. This however was perfect to warm in my Crock Pot Lunch Crock Food Warmer. I was lucky to find mine at Target this past winter on sale. It's been a lifesaver for me. I get so bored with everything I take for lunch. At least now and then I can make something, take the leftovers to work, heat them up and lunch is done!

You can find the recipe for this here. The only thing I did different is that I used a package of Turkey Store Italian Turkey Sausage instead of three hot and three sweet sausages.


 This was super easy to prepare. Cook your pasta.


Chop your peppers 


......and onions.


Cook your sausage


Throw it altogether and your done!

This recipe makes a lot! Next time I'll make a smaller batch. Again you can find the recipe here.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!

Mini Album - Happiness Is In The Journey

IMG_0438

I have a ton of this paper! I made a book that someone bought and then another person wanted the same book. I purchased another 12x12 pad so I could recreate it since I had used certain images that I no longer had. I love this paper so it doesn't bother me to have more of it than I probably need. 

For this book I went a little narrower in height and with the spine. There's only one page, but still plenty of room for photos. 

The paper is from Recollections called Memories Documented, as are the wood dots on the cover. I kept it very simple. there's not a lot of room for dimension, but I like these little books.

I made a stacked pocket. I saw that in one of My Sisters Scrapper videos. I love everything that Ginger creates! I decided to leave the fronts of the pockets kraft without any patterned paper.

I love waterfalls! I think I put one in almost every book I make. It really increases the amount of photos that can go in a book. I'll share more books that I create with this paper.
