5-28biscotti recipe

  • I have a great recipe

  • My new bracket quick page album for Beth at Gotta Pixel.

Love Biscotti? I surely do. Yum! Before I found digi scrapping I used to be in the kitchen all the time making goodies and taking them in to work. This is a recipe that I tried along the way and it is a keeper! Bake it three times to get it nice and crisp It is so totally worth it! Just like the store bought versions. The recipe is on a 4x6 size so you can glue the two pages together for the complete directions. These are really great to attractively wrap for christmas or for cookie exchanges.

I did this Layout with Rachels kits at Digital candy.ca
for the Digital Candy Digi-dare challenge for May 08. hmmmm, scrap something delicious ...well if I HAVE to... ok so you don't have to twist my arm at all, I love cookie making anyway. ha!

Are you drooling from the pictures? I am! ...going to find chocolate...

Look Ma! no hands! The easy things in life... All you need to do with quick albums is open software like photoshop or scrapbookmax and then open another layer and open your photo and place it in the pre cut out hole in the layout design. save it and WOWzers, how easy is that? Journalling and wording text may be added at this time. You can print it out and cut it to shape it fits the cardboard bracket albums found in the craft and scrapbooking stores. This is a bracket album I made up for Beth and Rachel for the kit What a Rush. I saw this surfing theme shower curtain a couple months ago and thought of thier bright and bold designs immediately. They had not worked together before that and I suggested a surf theme with those colors. I am happy to announce this fun summery and beach surf collaboration kit WHAT A RUSH at gottapixel

oooooo ThunderBOOMers and Jageddy lights have to go.... trying to get the freebie in here.

5-14 Crystal Challenge Hunter

Well I had a blast on Mother's Day after standing in 50 degree farenheit weather in the cold and rain all day Saturday the sun finally was out doing what it does best and letting loose with some awesome rays on Sunday. Minnesota weather is anything but predictable and after such a snowy winter Iam so so so so glad for green grass and I'll even take the mud. I see that the tulips are in full bloom right now and will last just a few more days so photo project is my goal for tomorrow.

Anyway Mother's day turned out alright as my son needed to be in the Twin Cities for a soccer tournament that weekend and he even had a shot at a goal at one point. woohwee! Many goal by many of the guys on the team made it worth the time and after a few poor seasons it was oh so splendily great to win a few games. I scrapped up a few pages to commemorate the occasion. The above Layout is a sub-style i like to call embellished photo, not quite a scrapbook page, more graphic and a single photo with embellished elements.

So since we had time in between the games we had to do something and not expend too much energy so ta da! Barnes and Nobel book store here we come. There really is not much out there in print on our great hobby of Digital Scrapping but I did find a copy of Digital Scrapbooking magazine put out by Creating Keepsakes. A great read!!! There was an article/ad by Kuler.adobe.com and WOWZERS! I love it. As a budding designer I need a little inspiration where color is concerned and presto what a neat toy! I am totally in Love with this site!!! You can view swatches, create, adjust , search by key words and download the swatches as an .ase file that goes straight into CS2 and CS3 as a SWATCH! no copy and paste, no typing hex codes ah ha! Love it. How great is that?

Time to play and check out their tutorial too while you are there.

I created a few color swatches and ask that you find a moment to register, play, and VOTE FOR ME! ha ahahahaaha ;)
search for cjozbydesign for my swatches
