I'm so excited to be the guest designer this month over at The Paper Trail! Karen always has fabulous challenges to work with over on the blog, and this month's kit is Crate's Neighborhood line. *SWOON* You can't go wrong with Crate!
When I saw this paper, I knew I had to do a layout for my medium DD with it because she's been feeling left out lately. :( This is about her and her first school BFF. Who knew texting terms were so "in" with the kindergarten crew? LOL.
TPT is being sponsored this month by Krisi's Kreations. I downloaded her fab 2010 calendar pages and fun button sentiments. I've always wanted to create a month-at-a-glance page but never had, so that's what I used them on! I chose to document this past December because I always have a ton of December pics.
Finally, to start off the month, The Paper Trail is having a blog hop, until April 3rd, with a progressive dinner theme. For those of you who have never heard of a progressive dinner, it's where a group of people start at one house and eat your appetizer, and then move to each house eating and socializing. Your task with us is to pick one as inspiration (or all of them!) and show us your layouts (it doesn't have to be about food). I'm serving up appetizers. Here is your inspiration pic...
...and here is a layout that I created for my cookbooking scrapbook, a Rachael Ray recipe for Lettuce Wraps. I used some Asian-inspired papers from Karen's shop along with Cosmo Cricket Earth Love journaling spots, Prima flowers, and Liquid Pearls (which Karen has in just about every color!
Here is the blog hop order:
First up is our Appetizer at Heather's...YOU ARE HERE!
Going for drinks next at Amarilys'
Then we're off to Yara's for some salad
And the main dish at Sandi's
A scrumptious side dish at Karen's
A yummy dessert at Krystle's
an after dinner mint at Krisi's Kreations
And ending the evening playing some cards at Tanya's.
Then go back to the Trail Makers blog, become a follower (if you aren't already) and tell us what you liked best about the Fun in the Neighborhood Blog Hop for a chance to win an April 2011 kit from The Paper Trail (retail value $35). You have until 11PM EST on Sunday, April 3rd to complete the hop and get your comments posted!

Most of my layouts are about the kids or our family, but I also treasure my scrapped recipes... it makes cooking WAY more fun! You can follow my blog by clicking "Follow" in the top left corner.
