Birthday celebration giveaway!

Well, not MY birthday (well, yea, I guess it'll be that too) but my blogs birthday is in March! Three years old, can you believe it? They grow up so fast... :-D Anyhooo, I'm pulling stuff together already to go into a huge box o goodies to get sent to one lucky winner in March! Stay tuned!

I've got a couple of layouts to share. This is for the challenge on Creative Cookbooking. The challenge is to create a layout about kids in the kitchen. It can be a kids recipe, photos of kids helping cook, about your first memory of cooking, whatever! Anything goes! I got the idea of chalking the BACK SIDE of a Basic Grey doily paper from my extremely talented and creative friend Rita. Unfortunately I just could not get a good photo of it, it's much more colorful in real life. But if you look closely, you can see some of the purple flowers.

Here's one using Basic Grey Nook and Pantry line. I took one look at that cupcake paper and thought "LORDY! What do you DO with that!" LOL I challenged myself to actually use it and this is what I came up with. I had so much fun decorating the cupcakes! LOL

Thanks for visiting and have a scrappy day! :-)
