A quiet house on a holiday! Perfect!
I "accidently" found two copycat recipes for See's candies this week. I knew I shouldn't, but I had to try them. Delicious and super easy. I got that out of my system and won't do them again until Christmas. Then I'll be sure to get chocolate sprinkles to add to the top of the "Bordeaux."
I decided to gift a friend with a little box of chocolates (so I don't eat them all!). I love that with the Scor-Pal, I can easily make a box or bag. Once I decide on the dimensions, it only takes a minute to decide how large I need my cardstock and where to put the folds and cuts.
I'm entering this in PaperCrafter's Corner's Magazine Monday Challenge, my new fave challenge! Here's the inspiration for this week. I went with the patriotic colors and, Steph, did you notice I used the negative space again? :o)
I've never entered the Scor-Pal challenge, but realized I could do a twofer this week. I do love my Scor-Pals, yes, Scor-Pals, plural. I bought the newer one with more grooves, but can't part with the original. I'd love to have a Scor-Buddy, too, just because it's so cute. The Scor-Pal challenge is "More Than One Score" Challenge #6 - Colors of Your Country/Patriotic." This is a monthly challenge that runs through the end of July.
Hopefully, my links will take you to both of these challenges. Thanks for looking.
