CHA + Another Giveaway + a Yummy Recipe!

Hey Gals! It's Friday and time for another giveaway!! With CHA happening this weekend we're just drooling over all the new product! I want to know what you're MOST excited about!! Any hot new paper line you're dying to play with? I'm going to be ordering some fun stuff for the shop and want to know what you'd like to see. My personal favorite is Maya Road. They've got some adorable mini albums they're coming out with. I also love their trinkets, beads and beaded pins.

Oh, and tomorrow I'll pick a random name to win one of our Ice Cream Cone shapes!! Yup! So post away. And you can enter our Summer Contest with it! :) Click HERE for all the details!

And because it's summer and I was visiting the Mary Engelbreit website last night I came across this yummy cocktail recipe so thought I'd share. It's called the Island Getaway Cocktail. The name already does it for me. Here ya go...

2 ounces pineapple vodka (see recipe that follows)
Juice of 1/2 lime
1 teaspoon sugar
Club soda as needed

Pineapple Vodka
1 ripe pineapple, peeled, cored, and sliced into rings
1 liter bottle good-quality vodka


Happy Weekend!!

So I have TOTALLY slacked off on scrapping for oh, um the last two and a half years, but lately I have really been getting back into paper crafting! Since I was out of the loop for so long things really changed so it is all fun for me!! I am loving October Afternoon and Sasafrass Lass right now! And the Maya Road stuff looks so fun!

Okay, sign me up for the ice cream cone!! It is darling!!
