Glimmer Mist layout

I have spent the last couple of days working on a few projects for the Tattered Angels Catalog, so I thought I'd share a few of the things I've been working on. You can check the Tattered Angels Blog for more on this project.. AND some totally fantastic projects from the other TA Designers.
Also .. check out the new Tattered Angels website

The photo if of my cousins daughter.. Candice. Isn't she a beautiful girl? This was taken the day of her Senior Prom.
All of the TA pieces I used on this layout are Glimmer Glass.

The background design.. is one of the new "Glimmer Screen" releases coming up... (just a little sneak peek)

Beautiful stuff to work with.
I'll be sharing more TA projects , over the next week or so.

It's been windy and cold here the last couple of days. I cant seem to stay warm. Maybe because I can "hear" the wind whipping outside. brrrrr. ...
I decided I was making soup for dinner last night. Good time for soup!

I made my sister Jan's ... oh so delishioso "Sausage Kale Soup" I love it! We do all different soups for Christmas Eve , with the big extended family.. and she always makes this one. ( because I always request it) lol
Here is the recipe if you want to give it a try. It's SO yummy and super easy to make.
" Jan's Sausage Kale Soup" (8 servings 2 quarts)
1 lb uncooked spicy Italian sausage links ( the spicier the better)
3/4 c chopped onion
1 bacon strip diced
2 garlic cloves minced
2 c water
1 can (14 1/2 oz) chicken broth
2 c diced potatoes
2 c thinly sliced fresh kale or spinach
1/2 cup whipping cream
Peirce sausages . Bake sausage at 300 for 20-25 min in an ungreased baking pan- til fully cooked. Drain ..and set aside to cool. Meanwhile in a saucepan, saute onion and bacon about 3 minutes. Add garlic, saute 1 min. Add water, broth and potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover and simmer 20 minutes or til potatoes are tender. Cut sausages in 1/2 lengthwise, then into 1/4 inch slices. Add kale, cream and sausages to soup. Heat through..but do not boil.

Maybe a cup of tea with warm me up? hmmm
I think I'll give it a try.
Have a super day friends!
