{A Mini Photo Shoot}

So, I have been chomping at the bit to work on my photography skills. Right now, I don’t have too many cooperative subjects so I had to bribe my niece to pose for me.

For her 5th birthday, my sister fixed up her room in hot pink and zebra so I thought it would be cute to get some pics of her in her room.

{Bicycles & Monsters, Oh My!}

As promised, some awesome projects from DT Lovey, Diana!

Diana-Bicycle Card 
How lovely is this card?! I just love the colors and that trim! Diana used one of the bicycle tags in the Enjoy the Ride Bicycle Tag set and can you guess the other {embellish*ology} product she used? If you guessed one of the tags from the Fright Night Journaling Squares set, then you are correct! She simply cut away the patterned part of the journaling square and added the ‘Thank You’. Genius!

Diana-Smile Monster Card
Check this out! On this card, Diana cut out one of the little monsters from the Little Monster Embellishment Tags and popped him up on a wood grain/faux bois tag from the Wood Grain Tags in Halloween Colors.

So, you see, there are many ways to use even holiday themed products for non-holiday themed projects!

Have you used any {embellish*ology} products in any of your projects? We’d all love to see! You can share them over in the {Inspired} Flickr group!

{Stir Fry Chicken Fajitas}

Another recipe I’ve been asked to share. Haven’t heard from anyone who’s tried any of my recipes so if you have, speak up! I’d love to hear what you thought. :)

2-3 Chicken Breasts, cubed or cut into strips
4 Tbsp Liquid Smoke
Green Bell Pepper, sliced
Red Bell Pepper, sliced
Med. Onion, sliced
1-2 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp Olive Oil

Put chicken in a Ziploc back with Liquid Smoke, set aside.

While chicken is marinating, heat wok or skillet with butter on med-high and sauté onions & peppers. Remove onions and peppers from skillet.  Add olive oil and chicken to skillet (carefully, since skillet will be hot). Brown chicken on both sides, about 5-7 minutes.

Add onions & peppers to skillet, mix with chicken then cover. Continue cooking on low heat until chicken is cooked through (about 10 minutes).

Serve with all the fixins!

{Halloween Dinner Party}

Hi! How is everyone? Been a while, huh? Well, I have a little treat for you from one of the DT lovies, Tessa!

When Tessa sent me her projects, I immediately thought of a Halloween dinner party…

How about this for an invitation design? Tessa used the chandelier tag from the Fright Night Halloween Cut-Outs.

Now that the invitations are taken care of, how about some place cards for the table? For these, Tessa used the Fright Night Labels and mounted them onto black cardstock.

Ok, so we have invitations and place cards how about some favor tags? How cute are these?! To make these tags, all you need are the Fright Night Journaling Squares and some dimensional Halloween stickers

Want an alternative to the invitation above or thank you cards to send home with your guests? Whip up some of these using the Happy Halloween tag from the Fright Night Halloween Cut-Outs.
Thank you 

Also, don’t forget in the shop we have these Spooky Halloween Tags that would be perfect for cupcake toppers…

Or these Halloween Wood Grain tags that could also be used for favor tags or labels for your menu items.

So there you have it…a complete set for your Halloween dinner party!

Thank you to Tessa for her great ideas! I’m so glad to have her as a part of my Design Team.  :)
