This week's challenge involves using white space and you'll be using my Snuggle Up Page Kit! I'm so excited to see all the beautiful layouts that will be created!
I heard back from the friendly folks at the Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber blog! They let me choose which Charming Jelly Cake I'd like and I finally chose April Cornell's Nature's Chorus. Isn't is pretty!

On the scrapbooking front I learned that a layout I submitted will be published along with a little article I just wrote up on my daughter's love of photography! The magazine will be out in February, and I'll be sure to point you all to it!
On the fabric front, I won a huge bundle of precut fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop! I can't wait to see which line I'll get!
The roll recipe I linked to in my last post -- delicious! The chicken turned out wonderfully too! I want to make a recipe layout for it, so I'll post it as soon as I do!

I just have to share this beautiful pair of layouts my CT member CindyB made with Snuggle Up! Click on the layouts to leave her some love!
I'm trying out some new recipes today! I'm roasting a chicken in my new crockpot and will start these delicious looking rolls in little bit. Click over to King Arthur's Flour for the recipe.

3/4 cup white granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cups bread flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat mats. Melt the butter and mix with sugars, salt. Stir in the vanilla and eggs. Mix the baking soda and flour, then blend into wet mixture. Finally stir in the chocolate chips. Place rounded teaspoonfuls at least 1 inch apart from eachother on the sheet. Bake for 8 1/2 to 9 minutes, or until top is slightly golden. If dough has been chilled cook for 10 to 11 minutes.
Parmesan Baked Chicken, Broccoli & Rice
2 skinless boneless chicken breasts

2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
2 Tbls butter
1 stalk fresh broccoli
1 box Chicken & broccoli Rice-a-roni
1 Tbls butter
2 cups water
Preheat oven to 400 F. In a baking dish, melt the butter. In one bowl mix the flour, Parmesan and Italian seasoning. In another bowl beat an egg and mix in the garlic powder. Dip the chicken in the egg mixture, then coat with the breadcrumb mixture. Place the chicken in the dish and turn to coat both sides with butter. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and cooked thoroughly.
Brown rice and vermicelli in butter over medium heat in large saucepan. Once golden, add water and seasoning. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

This is my 4-year-old's favorite dinner! :)

With the details of intricate paisley and fine tooled leather, this versatile dark brown Embossed Leather Alpha set can be used on everything from elegant to masculine layouts!
All pieces created at 300ppi. Uppercase letters measure approximately 1-1/4 inches tall.

Perfectly coordinates with my Snuggle Up Page Kit! (Sweater knit paper used in the Embossed Leather Alpha preview background is not included in this download, but is included in the Snuggle Up Page Kit.)
On another note -- I spent wayyyy too long redoing this blog template! I've lost some of my links and the older posts' images are too big to completely show, but I'm going to be slowly fixing things. Let me know what you think or if you find anything not working properly!
