Something I've Never Done Before

After all this time paper crafting I've never done a recipe swap. Don't get me wrong...I like recipes, I just don't think I'm 1. a very good cook and 2. able to put something cute together. Well, my friend Courtney asked me to join her 6x6 recipe swap I couldn't say no. As a matter of fact she could hear my foot stomping through the miles when I said FINE...I'll do it. You see...I only join swaps with 10 or less players. For some reason that is about the most of on thing I can make without getting frustrated. Also, it's 6x6...I mean really...what do you do with the extra room if you have a 3x5 recipe?! BUT, I said yes so I needed to get to work on it. So.....there it is------->

What do you think? I went to my LSS and got the veggie designer paper. Used my Chefabella, GinaK's Scalloped Frames & Doodles, and my word set from the Kim Hughes Collection at CHFs. The recipe has a brad on the left top because there are two pages and you can move the top 3x5 card up and around so it is out of the way to read the directions on the 2nd page. Would you be pleased if you received this page in a swap? I hope so 'cuz this is what I'm going with! Chef

A little later today Todd and I are going to get my new car. I won't keep you in suspense...it is a VW Passat Wagon. It has everything on it that a person could want...leather interior, heated seats, 6 disc CD changer, lots of room, and the best part is that it is WHITE!!! I have always wanted a white vehicle (don't ask me why...I don't know) and now I have one...woohoo! Bouncing Around If you click on the link ignore the price in the left corner as it isn't what we paid and I'm not gonna tell ya! LOL! I will take a picture when we get it home and post it. I'm sure I'll have a huge smile! Oh...if I have your cell phone number and you can get a text you'll probably see it that way first! LOL!!!

Alright...have a super Saturday and I'll see you back here later!

Got the text! Man, you're stylin' in that wagon! Todd better watch out... you're driving a dude magnet! LOL!

It is funny though... being a mom changes your priorities. I would have never dreamed of owning a mini van and now it's my dream car!

LOVE the swap. Can't wait to try out the recipe!

Hi Lori
I have been in many recipe swaps but they were always the normal size paper of 8.5x11 and you put the recipe in a protective page and then mail it. But never for 10 people, lol.

Love your new car. I had a wagon 2 times and loved it
