Strawberry Cake Yum!

I have a ritual of having family Sunday dinners and this week I was hungry for lasagna and a strawberry cake.  It just so happens that the Cutting Cafe's design team assignment included an adorable strawberry card file so what better way to use it than on a layout with the strawberry cake recipe.  I am always looking for my favorite recipes and I think I should start to put them in a recipe scrapbook.

Here is the adorable file I used.

Stop on over at The Cutting Café and see all the wonderful files there are to choose from!

Have a sweet week!

Father's Day Card

This weeks design team assignment over at "The Cutting Café" included a number of adorable files to use for Father's Day.  I chose to use this adorable shirt and tie file.

I used the tie card that was included in this file and cut it in half so it would lay flat on my card base.  So simple to glue the three little pieces together and adhere to your card front, add a banner with a sentiment and some twine at the top of the card and you are finished!

Wishing all the wonderful Father's out there a blessed and grateful day!

Baby Shower 1986

Hello there!
This weeks assignment for the design team over at "The Cutting Café" was to use either the baby bottle or diaper shaped card set.  Since I don't have any baby showers coming up or new arrivals I decided to go back in time and scrapbook the baby shower that was given for me when I was pregnant with my now 26 year old daughter! 

The great thing about scrapbooking older photos is the memories become fresh when we start to think about the events and the people in the photos.  When we scrapbook a memory we are honoring that memory and making it more special to us!

Here is the file I used:  I love using these files on my layouts.  I used the invite and use the opening in the top to slip one of my photos and also the receipt I still had from my pregnancy test!

Check out the baby bottle file as well!  It is super cute!

Thanks for looking and have a great week!
