Happy weekend everyone! I realize that as you are reading this, your weekend will have come to and end, but I hope it was a wonderful one. As the weather is warming up here, we are spending more and more time outside enjoying the perfectly good temps before they climb to the point where it is a little too uncomfortable to be outside much. My little one loves for me to tell her stories about myself as a child each night before I tuck her in for good and say goodnight. Tonight's story was about what I would spend my few, treasured coins on now and then...bits of change I would earn from doing special tasks around the house without being asked, such as straightening my dad's shoes. I remember my mom taking my little brother and I on errands and if we had to stop for gas, she would always stop at a station called Thrifty C. It was tiny, but had the sweetest, friendliest little lady working inside always. I think her name may have been Lois. Anyway, she had rows and rows and jars and jars of gummies, bubble gum, tootsie rolls, etc. and they were each a penny. So, she'd hand us a little brown bag and we'd get to think over all of the goodies we wanted and make our careful selections of what we were going to spend our coins on. It's so funny that such a simple thing would stay with me for so long...ahhhh, the simple, carefree days of childhood. I often wonder what my little one will remember. Goodness, I love that little lady.
Today's project was created for Frost it Pink. I created a bundle of party packets using Papertrey Ink's Seed Packet die as my base and then piled on the brights, the happys, the fruitys, and the sparkles!
I love bold, bright colors, mixed with vintage touches, images, colors, and distressing...kind of fun for a change.
Before I head, I have a yummy recipe to share with you...I think you'll love it as much as I do. This recipe I will be keeping and using for years to come! I found it on m very most favorite recipe site called Six Sister's Stuff and they are called M&M Samoa Blondies! I didn't have any M&M's floating about, so I just used semi-sweet chocolate chips and holy cow! Just a heavenly, little treat!
Enjoy your Monday and thanks for your visit and sweet comments!
