Asian Noodle Salad... AMAZING

I was reading a post on facebook by Pioneer Woman for her Asian Noodle Salad and I knew we just had to try it.   I followed her recipe except for I omitted the Cilantro (Hate that) and added Parsley, I also sent my honey to the store and he forgot bean sprouts and cashews, so I left out the bean sprouts and used some almonds that I had on hand... let me just say.... DELICIOUS!!!!  This recipe is truly amazing.  Warning.. It makes A lot!  The leftovers are even better the next day!   You should try it!   Here's her recipe:

Art of Oberservation - Week 10 GOALS

 This week's assignment GOALS.  Set up, plan and execute a goal(s). 
 I used Heidi Swapp's Sugar Chic Papers.  I just love the entire line. 
 There are a lot of blank spaces for journaling and photos while I work on accomplishing my goal.  It will be an ongoing file.
 Heidi had us list things we do well, or that are positive.  I incorporated my list into the file.
 The pocket on the right houses a notebook for added journaling, thoughts, inspirational quotes, anything I find along the way that will help me remember my goals.
 I really love the way this file turned out.  It's all about the Heidi colors
 A whimsical page

Art of Observation Week 9 - Someone Special

This week's project focuses on someone special in your life.  I chose my son, Alex.  The objective was to document him right now at this time in his life.
This is the inside first look.  It's not quite complete, I need to add some journaling here and there and a few more embellishments.  

The page above needs something.  I haven't decided between embellishing it with a red star and some matching items, or maybe journaling about the photo or.....?

 This is a page from the photostack

The journaling tag will be completed later.  
 This divider page was made with Photoshop then adhered.  On the Right is a photobook

 I'm saving the space on the left for some journaling about the relationship between Alex and his sister Ashlea.  They are great friends

 Again, journaling added to the tag.  The right is a pocket with some photos tucked in.

And last but not least, the left side I'm saving for a current photo next time Alex comes home, and in the envelope I have a letter to him.  I need to add a few more embellishments.

The Duece

I made this layout using Jessica Sprague's Echo's of Asia digital kit as well as LivE's Storyteller Frame for the smaller photo, both available at   I must add that I did look up Duece/Deuce.... they are both listed in the urban dictionary as the slang word for 2.  I think it looks weird.  I should've used Deuce??
