A Sweet Repeat

Today I am a Guest Designer over at Pink Cricut. 

Really- Today is the day. Seems my blog and Sarah's blog at Pink by Design did not synch well last week. So we are trying again today.

On January 25th, Sarah announced her new Pink by Design Team and I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of them. You can click here to see all the new members. It is a privilege to be among this group of talented crafters.

As many of you know, I love to cook and try new recipes. With that said, I also like to scrap my favorite recipes. I scrap them all as 8x8 page layouts and keep them in albums with page protectors so when I cook, the pages stay nice and clean.

My guest designer project today is an 8x8 layout of one of my son's favorite dishes and what we usually have on Christmas mornings. I can't believe I haven't scrapped it until now. I came across this pretty french blue and yellow patterned papers and they seemed just fitting for this layout. I used 5, yes 5 different Cricut carts on this layout!
If you cannot read the recipe, drop me a note and I will be glad to send it to you.  
Please come back and leave a comment if you try the recipe. I would love to hear how you liked it.
