Recipe Scrapbooking Papers
A few years ago I discovered a line of papers in my favorite scrapbooking store, Scrapbook Village in Glasgow, KY.   The papers are made for Gooseberry Patch and they are called Cookbookin' Recipe Scrapbook Kits.  Now, since that time it has been rumored that Cookbookin' bought back their rights and separated from Gooseberry Patch.  I do not know if that is true, but if it is or isn't I just fell in love with this line of papers and have had fun with them ever since.  The following information is on the back of the paper folder. 
I wanted to make a mini book and I came up with a jar book.  The book that I designed is in the shape of a jar with white folded paper bags in the inside.  The bags are attached by sewing them into the fold.  The pages will hold, very successfully, all the papers, recipe cards and ephemera you can add.  
I will be offering these books to purchase on my website.  So watch for them to appear.  I will also be giving one away on a RAK pack I will offer in the near future for all followers.  If you haven't joined yet, sign up and you will have a chance to win.
Thank you for checking in today and remember to try something new today.  Happy scrappin'.

Howdy folks,
Well it has been about 3 weeks since my last entry.  Unfortunately I have been without the internet for that period of time.  We live in Nashville, TN and we have been without a land line phone and internet since the 5th of May.  It has been awful.  I am so behind with everything it will take me a while to catch up.  So please forgive me my fellow crafters and now I am back on track and ready to rip loose.  Here we go folks and hold on, there is a lot to catch up on.
I will be posting my first project later today.
Hope to talk to ya soon,
