Hello my artsy friends, welcome to the weekend! Sundays were meant to be relaxing, so sit back and let those creative juices flow!
It’s layouts like this that make me wish I had been more creative with my daughter’s baby photos. At the time I was too busy figuring out motherhood. 😉 My daughter is now 19 (ouch) so needless to say, scrapbooking has come a long way. Did you notice the background paper by Dear Lizzy titled Phases Of The Moon; isn’t it just perfect for those priceless sleepy time photos?
I know you need the scoop on how Jinny created this adorable layout, so click here and I will take you over to her blog so you can take notes. There’s a lot of fine detail and layering on this beautiful layout and you’re going to love the closeup photos. Happy scrappin’!
I truly enjoy giving pishkies (little gifts) to people “just because.” There is nothing that fills the heart more than bringing a smile to someone’s face. When I discovered this sweet notepad/giftcard holder I knew I had to share. It’s a perfect little pishky to give to someone that might need a little pick-me-up. For complete instructions click here and I will take you over to Gloria’s blog Scraps Of Life. Would you believe this notepad holder started out life as a tag?
Here’s the inside; too cute!
I’m a firm believer in the policy of Random Acts Of Kindness and I challenge you to think of just one thing that you can do to bring a smile to someone. Whether it’s giving a little handmade pishky or paying for a stranger’s cup of coffee, you just never know how important those little acts of kindness are. Have fun thinking of ways to brighten someone’s day!

This recipe has a bit of history that I would like to share. The recipe for Double Crunch Honey Garlic Chicken Breasts now has over two million views, many of which were rave reviews. This super crunchy double dipped chicken breast recipe with an easy honey garlic sauce is holy cow amazing!The original pork version of this recipe Double Crunch Honey Garlic Pork Chops was posted several years ago and it was so popular that it’s still being shared by many. In August 2014 Rock Recipes came out with another version that is a bit on the lighter side 😉 . You’re gonna love ’em all!
Thanks for stopping in for a visit; I hope you have a wonderful week. I’m looking forward to seeing you back soon; I can’t wait to share what I have planned for you next Sunday 😉 !
