A Gift for my Friend

I have a friend, Mya, who is celebrating her birthday this month! She lives in the great state of Texas...and I wanted to make sure her gifts were on I sent them weeks early! She has received them and so I felt I could now share one of the things I made for her, with you! :)

She likes to cook and on her blog, she posts lots of yummy recipes and ideas! :) When I found this little *cooking* scrapbook kit...I couldn't resist! I knew she would love it (and she always appreciates something handmade!)

So I gathered a few of my favorite recipes...nothing super fancy, but things that will definitely satisfy the tastebuds...and got to work!

I had a lot of fun making it. I knew that she would appreciate the time and creativity I put into it and that made it even more special and enjoyable to make. By the time I was done, every little paper stuck to my fingers. I had glue, from the glue stick, all over me! ;)

Although I found this wonderful could easily make your own! It makes a fun gift for anyone, in your life, that likes to cook or bake! :) If *you* would like these recipes I have included in this scrapbook, please feel free to click on the picture to get a better look at the recipes and copy them down!

I need to's been another full day and I am exhausted. I am ready to curl up in my bed with a good book. Tomorrow holds adventures of it's own! :)

The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee,
and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
~Numbers 6:24-26
