This was my Great Grandmother's recipe box. I remember a long time ago my Grandmother was cleaning out the basement and was going to throw this out, but I asked if I could have it. I put it up and haven't looked through it since. What is wrong with me? I flipped through it today and had fun looking at the old recipes. Some typed...some clipped from magazines and newspapers and some even hand written. What a treasure! I don't recall alot of special family recipes on my dad side, but I am excited to look through them to see what I can find. I have a book of recipes that my mom/Grandma gave me as well. I think it is about time that I made recipe books for the family.

Only 8 more days until the first challenge kit is posted on our new blog! I hope you are planning on playing along with us this year!

Now onto the big news! My friend, Meridy, and I have started a challenge blog that will debut on January 5th! We both love kit clubs and love to make our own kits, so we decided to challenge ourselves and YOU to make our own monthly kits! I really think kits helps me scrap faster and better. It takes the guesswork out of it for me and lets me scrap whenever I get a few minutes.
Each month, on the 5th, we will post a kit that we have found to use as inspiration and the kits we came up with based on that. Through out the month we will share tutorials on making some of the embellishments, mini challenges to help you use your kit and even a blog hop so we can all share what we have done! Are you with me? So here are some links that you will want to know for our challenges:
My blog (I will post throughout the month about the challenges and what I am making)

Check that thing OUT! Amazing! No, it doesn't come with all the stuff, but that is not a problem. I have enough here to fill that puppy up. I can't wait to get it (they are trying to have it to me by Christmas) and share pics. with you. I will be in heaven setting it all up and reorganzing my room.
Off to the hop now! Keep checking in here...I have a fun surprise to share with you all on December 27th. I think you are going to like it!

I am happy to be coming back to share with you over the next year with more cards, more layouts, more challenges and...a secret. Yep. I am developing an secret identity. (Imagine me running into a phone booth and whirling around until I reveal my snazzy new outfit.) I am going to be starting a new challenge blog with a new friend of mine, Meridy. We have been chatting on 2 peas about our inspiration to do a joint challenge together. I am SUPER excited about it! We have big plans that include a new blog (we will both keep up with our regular blogs to post things that we each make), facebook page, blog hops, challenges and some surprises! What will our challenges be about, you ask? I might give you a hint about that a little later. Be on the lookout for it starting in January, though! I think it will be great fun!
In the meantime, I will post a few things as I get them done. I'm feeling a bit rusty! LOL Scrapping time has been fleetingly with all of the holiday activites. I dusted off my supplies, though, to whip up a card for Mojo Monday! Love this sketch! I have a feeling I will be using it again!
Go to Mojo Monday if you want to play along! I would love to see what you make!
Also in the works for me is a December Daily Album and chosing my One Little Word for this coming year. Last years word was Embrace and I tried my best to live it. What word would YOU choose for 2011, if you could pick one word to live by?

I got out my lovely stack of scraps to find some paper that said Fall to me. I think most of them are MME. Stamps are from Ippity except for the sentiment which is CTMH. I did the coloring with Copics.
Off to check the laundry. And hopefully create some more. Maybe laundry day isn't so bad after all!

from Clip it Up! How awesome is this? You know how I am about organizing and have been eyeing some of the shiney silver things on their site (http://www.clipitup.com/). I am very excited! I see a few more things on their site that I just might have to have. And I have an Amazon gift card just waiting to be spent.
Hey, have you checked out the Paper Posies site yet? So many pretty things to see on there. And it only takes seconds to sign up! So what are you waiting for? I want to have a VERY long friend list on there. :) http://paperposies.com/index.htm
Off to play! See you soon!

What I have mostly been doing this week is my embellishments. I got a new Jet Max Cube and it was just what I needed to be able to categorize my stash. Each drawer has its own purpose now and is labeled accordingly. :) Happy Sigh.

Yesterday was my birthday and I got spoiled! Wanna know what I got? Do you? Hmmmm??? LOL I got dozens of well wishes on Facebook (which was fun to see all day)....a gift card for dinner and babysitting (Sarah), some yummy chocolate chip cookies (Kasey), Summer Vacation Cricut Cart (Kim), $50 to Amazon (Dad/Meg/Rylie), Lyrical Letters Cart and hair cut gift certificate (Billy), chocolate (Isabel) and a necklace (Isabel). Plus phone calls and several renditions of the song "Happy Birthday". It was a fun day.
Off to play with my new stuff...or organize (I got a new Jet Max Cube as a happy birthday to me...LOL).
Make a great day!

Off to try the next challenge: stamping on fabric. Did you see that, Pam? I totally need some stick stock. But I don't have any. Boo.
Since I don't generally do fabric, I got out some twill ribbon and thought it would be great stamped with my banner stamp. Cutting it out was tricky, but I think it looks okay. Definitley out of my comfort zone. I'm glad I tried it and have some other ideas for it next time. Here is the blog with the challenge and a great example: http://pamelasworldofscrap.blogspot.com/
