Happy Monday! I made those yummy lookin' cookies above yesterday afternoon! My sister-in-law made some last week and they looked so good, I had to give them a try! They are super yummy! A Hershey recipe called "Peanut Butter Blossoms"...really easy and something I think would really go over well for holiday baking this year!
Did the above layout for a challenge over at the weekend CyberCrop at Let's Capture Our Memories! Had to use a leaf/leaves on our page whether it be in the picture, etc. The picture was taken by me when we were up in North Carolina for our vacation in June 2009. I also got to use my Martha Stewart Maple Leaf Punch!


This layout was done for a challenge that I hosted at the CyberCrop at Let's Capture Our Memories. We had to use 5 specific elements: die cut paper, flowers, brads, trim, & something hand cut.

And this tag was for yet another challenge at the CyberCrop - the Fold It Challenge! I have never tried folding paper like this before for an embellishment in scrapbooking; but I must say, it was very easy and I really adore how it looks and how it adds dimension!
Hope you all had a terrific weekend! We had a really good weekend! The Mann had off on Friday and Saturday - so, we got to have some time with family on Friday evening; then Saturday, we did some shopping, had lunch, did some cleaning at home, attempted making my very first dish of pork & sauerkraut...it was a good weekend! I always hate when they end :-(
Last night, I watched the Yankees game and was SO happy they are going to the World Series!! WOo-Hoo! Best team ever! I don't get too involved in sports, but I do love the Yankees!
And don't forget, tonight is a new week of Dancing with the Stars!!! I'll be watching!!
Happy Monday!
