Jillibean Soup! Happy.

1 comment:
I'm so excited to share that I have been invited to be a guest designer for Jillibean Soup!  There are some INCREDIBLY talented ladies on their new team, and I feel so honored!  I wanted to quickly share with you one of the pages that I made for my design team entry:
These are just some of the pictures I took for my daughter's senior photo shoot--love that we have a Riparian Preserve just down the street, made for some pretty backgrounds without having to drive to far away!

For this layout I used the Healthy Hello Soup collection, Adhesive sequins, cardstock tags, and Foil Tags-Hello.  
My favorites about his layout:
*I love the foiled Happy Tag--pop of gold!
*I love that I got to use an unusual colored cardstock as the background--this happens to be my girl's favorite color!
*the off set paper on the background.
*and FOUR pictures!

Thanks for the visit today and letting me share my happy news!

pinterest food find. buttermilk waffles

WOWZERS--this was delicious!!  **Just a note I used powdered buttermilk, I always have some on hand and store it in my fridge in an air tight container.**
recipe and photo credit: Sprinkle Some Sugar

Buttery Golden Buttermilk Waffles
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
20 minutes
Yield: 5 Large waffles
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tbs granulated sugar
4 tsp baking powder
pinch salt
1 3/4 cup buttermilk (REAL buttermilk produces the best results)
2 eggs
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
3 tsp vanilla extract
Begin by heating up your waffle iron and greasing it if you need to.
In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center, and pour in buttermilk, eggs, melted butter and vanilla. Mix until everything is fully combined without over-mixing. Let the batter rest for two minutes. Every waffle iron is different size wise so this may be different for everyone - but with my waffle iron, I use about 1/2-3/4 cup of batter per waffle to get a perfect, full waffle. Place waffles on a wire rack in a single layer and repeat this process with the remaining batter.*
Buttery Golden Buttermilk Waffles are best served immediately and eaten the same day.

My kids crack me up!  I happened to have my camera out when they were having a competition.  How would be the best way to jump in to the pool?  Well, of course--the Robot!
I used the Shine Bright kit from Scrapbook Circle, loved the beautiful colors in this kit-worked perfectly for this layout!
