Another Scrap Page!

Originally I was not going to use this side of the paper as I think the background is a bit busy for the eye but when I had my pics all arranged this is how it worked out the best. The lighting doesn't help but when I looked at this page in "good lighting" it seemed to focus more on the plain blue letters instead of the background so that does help! What do you think?

This is a close-up to show you the painted crackle effect on the star chipboard pieces. I used picket fence distress crackle paint....really cool stuff! :)

Hope everyone is having a great week!
Mine is SUPER busy but I will eventually catch up... (I hope)!

Tasty Tuesday!

Today I have 3 recipes for you!!

The first one is a nut encrusted salmon! So tasty if you like salmon!
You can find the recipe HERE!
The recipe calls for walnuts but I used hickory nuts for that extra flair! :)

The second dish is Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage which has quickly become one of my favs....I have recently made it about 3 times because I love it so much!! Simple to make and very few ingredients which is even better!
Click HERE for the recipe!

Last but not least is one of my fav cookies! They are called Sparkling Sour Cream Sugar Cookies! They do have a strong citrus flavor which I like but figured not everyone does so I should warn you! I first made these back in 2002 and it is one of those "keeper" recipes that I go to again and again!

* I used the cookie cutters I got from Jacque in one of her sweet stuff giveaways! * THANK YOU JACQUE!!!

If you try any of these recipes I would love to hear what you think about them!
