Frugal Fridays: Flourish Photo Corners $1.00 today only, projects and recipe by Tyler

Happy August everyone!  One week in Aug down and only 3 1/2 more to go before school starts.  Yeah!  I don't know if  I want Summer to end and approach Winter coat season but I'm not a warm weather person.  I can't sunbath in no way shape or form.  I love Fall weather, color of leaves and pumpkins so I am looking forward to the next season.  My son is bored being at home too and he's ready for school.  So starting next week we are going to dust the cobwebs off his brain and have little school sessions at home.

Okay now down to business.  For my Frugal Friday special you will get my Flourish Photo Corners file for $1.00 today only.  The price will magically disappear at midnight EST on 8/6/2010.  Click words below to purchase but before you leave please keep reading to see some awesome projects by my CDT and don't miss Tyler's recipe!

Flourish Photo Corners

I have an extremely elegant card using the Flourish photo corners file created by Lisa Lindesmith.  I just love the classiness of black and white together.  Sometime we spend so much time decorating the front of a card that we forget about the inside..not Lisa!  I think it's grand how the flourish wraps around the label and how the photo corners were used.   In addition to my flourishes file Lisa used my Fancy Labels file.  Click on words below Lisa's stunning card to purchase the labels.

 Next up we have a wonderful thank you card by Kylee.  She wanted something to put in her customer's order as a way of saying thanks for shopping with us.  She does some amazing embroidery...check out her website here.  Kylee used my Pocket Card and Fancy Labels files to create the card below.  The pink tag is sparkly but doesn't photograph well.  I think this is great at the customers could take off the thank you tag  and write their own message on the pink tag to give to a special someone.  Click the words below Kylee's wonderful card to purchase the pocket card file.

Okay now last but not least I will share with you Tyler's recipe.  But first I must show you the photo.

As I mentioned Tyler is bored so I told him then go make lunch for something to do.  He said he would make it all by himself.  So I stayed near by but didn't peak into the kitchen.  I had to laugh at what he brought out.  You all have heard of breakfast bowls right?  Well Tyler created a peanut butter and jelly bowl!  LOL!  Here is how you make it!

  1. Spread peanut butter around the sides of the bowl.
  2. Dump jelly in the center of the bowl
  3. Tear up bread and pile into bowl
  4. Eat with a spoon...Yummy!
Adoree thought this was the greatest thing!  She always gobbles down desert but for meals it's sometimes tough to get her to eat quickly.  Well she inhaled Tyler's creation!  She even asked Tyler to make her another one!  For desert Tyler spooned vanilla yogurt into a bowl and added mint chocolate Andes candies to it.  Not my favorite combo as I prefer chocolate chips but I ate every last bit since Tyler created it!  I can't wait to scrap these photos!  Tyler was sooo proud of his meal!

Speaking of food it's soon time for lunch!  So toodles....I'm working on getting ready for a yard sale..FUN!
Hope you have something more exciting planned for your weekend!  Thanks for stopping by!
