So here is my take on a card sketch I did for Bo bunny. There is room on the bottom to add a sentiment... when I decide what it should be. Also I have really liked the 6x6 card, I think it is like a mini scrapbook, and you can fit so much more fun stuff on it!

MME Challenge #11

I finally made the deadline early on this one. I saw this layout challenge and thought of a few different ways to use this. I liked the idea of using my old High School dance picture as the large background, with the smaller pictures for the picture spots. If you look through it seems this is one of my favorite paper line from MME... which I have loved using it... but I am also trying to use as much of what I have, only buying what I need, or have specific plans for. My Paper collection just seems to always grow, no matter how much I try to use only what I have. (luckily I still have a good stock of my mind's eye paper... or I really need to win one of these challenges soon.) Here is the LINK if you would like to play along too.

Are you ready for this... I discovered how to take a better picture (plus it helps doing so in the daylight, instead of last minute late at night, when my best work is done) is here is the edited picture!

The other thing you may notice is how I seriously need help with my picture taking skills... I am going to try to take some tomorrow in the daylight... see if that helps.

So here is my other idea for the 2 people who follow this... what Scrapbook stock do you have collecting dust and what can you create with it? Send me a link or a picture and I will give you a scrapbook kit FREE! I can't wait to see what you 2 come up with ! (I will give you til the end of May... I always work best with deadlines, thought you could use one too)

Mom's Day...

So I was going to try to be ambitious and make a mini album for the mom's I need to give to... but I think I keep running out of time... so I would love to hear any great ideas you (my few but faithful followers) may have or are planning on doing for this mother's day.

So I have this great Mrs. Fields recipe for blondies... but they are so time consuming, and one mistake and they are not so good. So my little sister accidentally turned a brownie recipe into a blondie one... and the results are soooo yummy. I am posting this on her for you all to try... let me know what you think!

Carmel nut Blondies/Brownies

1 (14 oz.) Kraft carmels
2/3 c. evaporated milk
1 German Chocolate cake mix for regular brownies OR yellow cake mix for blondies (my own mistake/invention)
3/4 c. butter, MELTED
1 c. chocolate chips, chopped ( I didn't chop, they melt on their own)
1 c. walnuts or pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350F.

Melt caramels with 1/3 cup milk in top of double boiler over barely simmering water. Stir frequently.

Combine cake mix with melted butter and remaining 1/3 cup milk.

Spread half this mixture into greased 9 X 13 inch pan.

Bake 6-8 minutes at 350 F.

Remove from oven and sprinkle with chocolate chips and pecans or walnuts. Drizzle melted caramels over chips and nuts. Cover with remaining cake batter.

Continue baking at 350 F for 15 minutes until brownies are firm to the touch. Cool before slicing.

Makes 3-4 dozen

I had to bake much longer than it said, I did until they didn't jiggle any more probably ten minutes longer. The second layer of cake batter doesn't spread very easily, but try to put little blobs all over and then with a spatula spread it smooth as you can without majorly mixing the caramel with it. They have to cool to cut, and they totally stay solid when cooled.
