Recipe For Happiness

Good afternoon, and happy Friday!  I'm a bit late getting my post up today, because we've had some big thunder boomers go through this morning, and when that happens, I disconnect all my computers from the power, just to be on the safe side.  They're all plugged in to surge protectors, but I don't completely trust those things.  Anywho, between the storms, I've been cooking up a storm.  I've got 140 hot rolls made, the last of which are in the oven as I type, and this house smells sooooo GOOD!!  We've got a little 25th  anniversary celebration to attend, and I volunteered to make the rolls and punch for the event.  Such a wonderful thing to be celebrating, and I'm sure looking forward to it!  So, that brings me to my project for today.  When thinking about spending 25 years of wedded bliss together, one might think about what it takes to accomplish that, and I ran across this cute little poem one day that was entitled A Recipe For Happiness.  You can click on the picture to get a closer look, and read the poem more clearly.
  I thought these special, but simple words would make a great addition to kitchen decor, so I decided to scrap this page and frame it.  I used the Recipe Box with Cards 4x6, and the Mixing Bowls Cottage Cutz dies, which are both from the In The Kitchen release at The Scrapping Cottage.  I cut the bowls with scraps of paper to match the accent piece on the page.  I decided I needed a table to set the bowls on, so I cut that from white card stock, and added an eyelet border with a punch.  A little added bonus was the stitched ribbon, which really makes it look real.  The paper is from the Nana's Kitchen collection from DCWV.  For the finishing touch, I added a little spatula brad.  I hope you like this as much as I do.  I think it's going to look really cute in the kitchen!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day, a blessed weekend, and happy stamping!
