This is what happens when...

....I decide to have a play-date with the companies I design for.

Hello!  I hope you're all doing well and your Christmas plans are well in hand.  The presents are wrapped, the tree is up and I think we're actually ready for Christmas here.

I have a new friend that I met the day I interviewed for my job.  She and I were destined to meet because it turns out she lives 7 minutes from my apartment and we got put on the same schedule so we carpool.  She is such a great friend, that I felt I needed to do something for her.  We talk about a lot of things on the way to work and one of the frequent topics is recipes.

With that said, I created E a paperbag cookbook and I incorporated some adorable digis from the companies I design for.  My plan was to share page by page everyday this week - but it didn't quite work out that way.

So up first is Deedee's Digis....


Here's the cover - these digis are from the very sweet set Lovin' from my Oven.  Doesn't she remind you of Aunt Bee?


The inside two pages also featuring an image from Lovin' from my Oven.


Up next is Cocoa Loves Football from Sweet n Sassy....


I decided it would probably be a good idea to include a couple of football recipes to include her husband who was a professional football player.


Here's a close-up of Cocoa.  Isn't he awesome?!

And finally, StampFairy had to join the fun, too.  This sweet image is part of the Ginger Babies collection.


This little guy is actually the pull tab, because this recipe slips inside one of the pockets that is naturally created when using paper bags to create a book.


Such a sweet face!

Well, I probably won't be posting the rest of the week so let me wish you a very Merry Christmas!  I do hope that among all the wrappings, ribbons and cookies that the true meaning of Christmas touches your hearts and homes.
