It's the 15th!

You know what that means! Well, besides being tax day... LOL It's new challenge day in the kitchen! And speaking of the kitchen, exciting news!

Kitchen Keepsake is cookbooking at its finest! Come and find your creative culinary muse!

The designers have cooked up some fun challenges, games, and prizes!

All challenges will be posted on Friday, April 29th and will be due on May 4th.

We hope you'll join us in the kitchen and get those creative juices flowing!


Whew, I thought I was broken for awhile there. No matter how hard I tried, I just couldn't create anything. Photos didn't inspire me. I tried sketches, lifting, even my old standby of trying a new technique didn't work. But then voila! Not sure exactly what happened, but the stars aligned or something and I seem to have gotten it back! WaHOOOO!!!

Laura challenged us to create a funny food foible in honor of April Fools Day. That reminded me of this layout I did several years ago in my Creative Memories Days, thus the corner triangles. LOL

I updated it using Little Yellow Bicycle. I recycled a tag that one of my girls had from a new shirt, it says POOF, which I thought was perfect for this story. :-D

For this one, I tried making my own zipper flower. I dunno, I'm not wild about it, but neither did I want to pitch it. Shrug. The photos aren't great either, they were taken with my iPhone. The story is sweet though. :-)

Thanks for visiting! Hopefully, I'll have more to show you soon. At the very least, I'm amused with my May calendar, which is coming up in a couple of weeks. YIKES! May already! Hope to see you in the kitchen! :-)
