Quinoa Crunch and Berries

Hello, today I just have to share one of my new favorite breakfasts, Greek Yogurt with Quinoa Crunch and Berries. Once you mix this stuff up it is so easy to grab breakfast really fast (which is great with kids, my boys eat and are ready to play so I have to hurry).


1 cup quinoa

1/4 cup flaxseed

1T honey

1 T olive oil

1. Mix all ingredients together. 2. Spread on a baking sheet and bake at 375 deg. F oven until lightly browned. (You might stir every 10 minutes for about 25 - 30 minutes.)

3. Let cool, crumble.

Serving Size 2T.

Calories per serving: 131.2

Recipe is from "The Master your Metabolism Cookbook" By Jillian Michaels

Place 1/2c. Plain Greek Yogurt in a small serving bowl with a 1/2c. of your favorite berries, then top with 2 T. Quinoa Crunch and drizzle with 1/2t. honey.

Valentine for a Friend

Hi There! Today I am stopping in to share a Valentine's Day card I made for a friend.

I have been trying to use my dies in different ways, so for the first card I cut 2 1/2 inches off the bottom. Then I die cut half of Mat Stack 5 and added Sweet Blush cardstock from PTI to complete the card. You may have noticed the cute little heart. That little number was crochet by a family friend and she gave me some to use for cards! They are so fun!

This next card was something I put together for a PTI Challenge, but do to poor lighting I couldn't take a picture in time. I thought I would share it anyway. I really like how it turned out and love this paper from My Little Shoebox

Thanks for stopping by,


PS: I got a new watermark recently and love it!! It was only $2 from Karen over at THE SWEETEST THING blog!

PTI Day 5: Sketch #5

Today I am back again playing along with the PTI gang in the sketch challenge. All the sketches were really awesome, but #5 stood out to me. Here is my take on the card:

I took my picture a little late so my picture doesn't have the best lighting. :( I am really happy with how the card turned out. I am so in to stamping on pattern paper lately. Today I used Rosie Posie on some My Mind's Eye from the Lost and Found set. Rosie Posie by the way is my favorite stamp set right now. It goes with anything! :)

PTI Day 5 : Pinterest Inspiration

Hello All,

Today I am sharing a card for Day 5 of the PTI Anniversary Contest. Today Nichole asked for a project inspired by something from Pinterest. There is so much on pinterest I think I could literally make cards all day long (and love every minute of it)! The above picture makes me smile, not only do I love the colors but also the ruffles!

Don't you just love the colors? I love Canyon Clay much so I had to use a lot of it!

Thanks for stopping by,


PS I have one more card I am going to share so come one back! :)
