Crafty Secrets "cooking" theme sticker, cotton and Images

Hope everyone is off to a great start to the week. I'm thrilled that the weather is finally so nice.. that I can have the windows open! YAY!
I even worked on a new projeds late last night, because I was SO enjoying having the window open in my studio.
I have had these cute photos from out last family get together, that I have been itching to do something with, so I made a little cookbook from one of the Crafty Secrets Wooden Clipboard albums.
All of the papers,chipboard, stickers, cotton and images are from Crafty Secrets also.

The last time I was in Lincoln, I ran across this sweet little heart shaped cookie cutter when I was wondering through Ben Franklin. I knew it would have to be a part of this cooking album.

The little cutie in these photos is my cousin Casey's little girl. She had such fun playing with the big pots ... ( actually ALL the kids did) I have photos to prove it. I'll be using those for other upcoming projects.

I had fun stitching (alot) on the album. ha

Crafty Secrets has a huge variety of "Cooking themed" products to choose from .. and I love them all. Like I said , I used images from the Cooking Image and Journal book, cooking stickers, and Cooking Cotton. They also have the cutest Cooking themed stickers, Here, here and here.

She was such a little show off for the camera. ( I was loving it)

What a ham.

I love the way all the different things, work so well together.

It was a fun project.
Yesterday was a beautiful day! Dan worked on finishing up the mowing and I worked in the flowers some. I love the smell of fresh cut grass.. (and the look of it too).
It's so great.. after a long winter.. to see my plants again.
Popping up little by little.

Even the Hosta's look so healthy.
Back in the trees and filling the ditches are wild phlox. Just seeing COLOR is such a treat , after months of looking at the "browns" of winter in NE.

I haven't gotten many new planters yet this year..but I did get these petunias for the porch. Out here, with the wind and summer heat.. "they" are one thing the usually will survive hanging out front.

The best part of the day , was that the kids all came home for dinner. We grilled, drank sun tea, and walked the yard with the pups. ( All this mom needs to be happy) ha Really.. that's my idea of a perfect day.
It was wonderful
Jarad and Kate, kinda have the "old farm couple" thing going on here. lol
They are so cute working on all their little projects together. They even have a garden.

Why does everybody walk away from me when I get out the camera?

Or.. in some cases ..Run! lol
It really was a nice day. Having them home for dinner, being able to grill out, enjoy the nice weather, and have a few laughs.... perfect!
Hope you had a super weekend also!

ADORABLE BOOK! I just love what you did with it. Do you just have stock piles of Crafty Secret stuff to work with at whim? :)

Yes, that yard stuff is hard work! We have been green a LOT longer than you have. Bought 2 white Lady Banks Rose plants this past week on our little trip south. Can't wait to see them fill in. Spring is so wonderful! Enjoyed your post & laughed at your fur baby RUNNING for the woods when you wanted a photo. Welcome to my club!

I love the album. I really haven't been into the 'cooking' or 'recipe' theme yet. I didn't even think about the toddlers playing with the pots, lol. Emma & Gracie love doing that!!! Oh thank you..... I hope you don't mind me CASEing it???? Your flowers and garden/house are beautiful. Enjoy this weather, before we know it, it'll be hot, humid and sticky :-(.
