Here are a couple of layouts....one from last night which has now been scanned and a very quick one from tonight. Again, all supplies from the Scrappy Giraffe November Kit.

I haven't posted a recipe for awhile. Here is what we had for supper tonight. Was very quick and easy and tasty as well. The girls devoured it too. Always nice when we all three like it. Also made a cake tonight as well. Maybe I'll post that later. Cooking/Baking seems to be my new therapy. Anyway, hope everyone had a great day.
