My friend and I have both started printing out the good recipes we have found online.  We've discovered that if you don't, it can be hard to remember later where the recipe was, and sometimes the recipe is no longer there when you go back to it!  I saw my friends giant binder of recipes the last time I was at her house.  They are all in sheet protectors.  I asked her if she had them organized by categories, and she said, "Not yet."  I decided that for my Christmas gift to her, I would help her organizer her binder.  I went to Office Max and purchased a set of tabbed sheet protectors.  There are 8 in the pack.  I'm going to make sheets for different sections of a recipe album.  (I just hope I make categories she will use!)  Here is my first one:

The sketch for this page came from Sketch Saturday.  The word desserts is from the Cricut cartridge Cursive 101 (I welded the letters together on my Gypsy.)  The oval and piece of cake are from the From My Kitchen cartridge.  I ran the oval through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.

This page will be entered in the following challenges:

Butterfly Birthday Card

I am invited to a birthday party next weekend for a little girl who's turning 6.  I went with a simple design for her card:

The butterfly is from Create a Critter.  The background is embossed with D'Vine Swirls (one of my most used Cuttlebug folders!)
