Scrappy Cookbook Club

There is a move to compile a cookbook from all the fabulous recipes from all you ladies. Please submit your recipes via e-mail or typed. We want to be able to read the recipe correctly. You have until the end of July to submit your recipe. Submit as many recipes as you wish and please state in which category it goes. Glenda and Joy are pulling all this together. This should be a humdinger of a cookbook.

Somerset Studios and Somerset Life just arrived. Can't wait to take a look and see what great projects they have.

One way to stay cool is to stay inside and scrapbook your garden instead of being outside in the heat.

Hope you all had a great Father's Day. I stayed pretty busy all weekend. Saturday was the Card Blitz. Everyone had a great time except when it came to folding those Dahlia folds. Then in the after I closed the store I mowed part of the lawn and finished on Sunday morning. Boy that grass is just a hopping.

Saturday was my nieces wedding in Clewiston. She was a beautiful bride. I was not able to be there but I am getting some great pictures so look out for some pages to be cropped.

This weeks layout is a recipe page. The page will be 8x8 using my favorite colors for this layout, red, green and antique gold. The paper has pears, cherries, and blueberries. My recipe is a hand written recipe from my grandmother. I will use this along with a picture of my grandmother.

Our 'Cricut Club' meeting on Saturday. Bring your Cricut and come have some fun. We will just sit and play all day. Make sure to let me know if you plan to come so I can reserve your spot. Seating will be limited.

Stay cool!!!!!!

Well are you toasted about now. This is only June. I can't imagine what August will be like.
Since the heat is on our page this week reflects one way of cooling off. The title is 1 2 3 AHH...
Carter is taking a leaping jump into a tiny little pool. the colors are lime, blue, bright yellow, and a multi stripe. Oh to be young again and be able to enjoy such simple pleasures.

Saturday is our card Blitz so be sure to sign-up. You do 4 cards in 2 hours. Lot's of fun and laughter.

Our 'Cuttle Club' was sooo much fun can't wait until the next meeting. So next month we will meet again on the 2nd Saturday.

There seems to be a lot of interest in starting a Cricut Club. So we will have our first meeting the 4th Saturday of June. So be sure to sign up so we can save you a spot. Seating will be limited due to the space needed for our machines.

Well, here we are enjoying the Summer heat and we haven't officially started Summer. we are not the only ones enjoying a heat spell. Iris just got back from Alaska and the temperature was in the 90's. WOW! can you imagine. All the glaciers in Glacier Bay were calving big chunks of ice so the ship couldn't go into the bay. The captain did not want to chance an encounter with submerged ice chunks.

Tomorrow will be our first 'Cuttle Club' meeting. Looking forward to see what all you guys do with that little machine. Depending on how the 'Cuttle Club' goes we may start a Cricket club. If you are interested in either give me a call or come by and talk to me.

Sunday is our 'Altered Mind' meeting so the store will be open from 1:00 until 5:00 p.m.

Have a great weekend.

Homemade KitKat Bars

Thanks to everyone who helped celebrate our third anniversary. I can't believe it has been three years since we opened those doors. Jane and Glenda made goodies for everyone to share.
One of the goodies Jane made was 'Homemade KitKat Bars'. Everyone asked her for the recipe and apparently she snagged the recipe from a Paula Deen magazine. So hre goes the recipe.

Homemade KitKat Bars
Makes about 2 1/2 dozen bars.

75 club crackers
1 cup butter
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup whole milk
1/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup butterscotch-flavored morsels

Line an ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan with 1 layer of crackers, cutting to fit if necessary; set aside.

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
Add graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, milk, and sugar.
Bring to a boil, and boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. (Begin timing 5 minutes from when you see the first bubbles.)
Remove from heat, and spread half of butter mixture evenly over crackers.
Place another single layer of crackers evenly over butter mixture, cutting to fit if necessary.
Spread remaining butter mixture evenly over crackers.
Top evenly with remaining crackers.

In a small saucepan, combine peanut butter, chocolate morsels, and butterscotch morsels.
Melt over medium-low heat, stirring constantly.
Spread evenly over top of crackers.
Cover, and chill for at least 1 hour.
Cut into bars.
Store in refrigerator.

The title to our layout this week is 'Learning'. The colors are teal, orange, deep red, and cream. There is an apple for my journal spot and an owl embellishment. I used one 4x6 photo and 4 smaller photos on some small tags.

Have a great night and see you tomorrow.
