Last year this Pacific point blue paper was really hard for me to use, I didn't like the way anything I made turned out with it but I am now completely in love with it her with the Kiwi Kiss and the So Saffron.

1 stick butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 c. light corn syrup
1/4 c. sweetened condensed milk
1/4 tsp. pure vanilla
Combine all ingredients (except apple vanilla) in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Once boiling, cook for 2 1/2 minutes (just until soft-ball stage). Remove from heat, add vanilla. Allow to cool slightly. Pour caramel over 6-8 cups of fresh popped popcorn. When caramel is poured over popcorn, stir until well coated, pack into popcorn balls.

I wanted something fun to put with my little bags of Halloween candy to pass out to the trick-or-treaters this coming Saturday. I found the idea for the pumpkin and Frankenstein on a website called splitcoast stampers. But I came up with the other two on my own. The green goblin with the big round eyes was my first idea but I switched to the oval eyes since they were easier to punch out. I thought the little devil was fun too! It is amazing what you can do with one shape. I tried to make a Ghost but the shape just didn't work right. I think if I punched the paper out in brown I could even make and owl. Thanks for looking!!

Okay so I have finnally gotten around to making some cards. Now I really need to get down to getting the kids some Halloween Costumes! Kaia wants to be a mummy and Jou a scary lady. Jou's I think will be a bit easier than Kaia's. I hope to go to the fabric market next week and get some white material for the mummy. I think Jou is really wanting to be a witch so hopefully I will not have too hard of a time finding something. Once the costumes are together I will post pictures of them.

It has been a bit of an adjustment working in this room since it is a bit smaller than my room in Belgium but I really don't think I will be having people over to scrap with me, at least not very often, so it really is plenty big for just me. I really have enjoyed having my punches hanging on the wall. I have seen this idea many times and always wanted to do it, so I was excited when I bought this racks to hang my spices only to find that I didn't have space in my kitchen. So right to the scrap room they went. James was even happier that he didn't have to hang them. Since I just called the workers from River Garden to come and hang them. It cost me 5 RMB per hole they have to make. So for 40 RMB I was able to get them hung. Which is about $5.50. The best part was I didn't have to wait for James to get around to it.

I meant to take a picture before we ate the casserole but I forgot. Sorry it is not a beautiful picture but this is a really yummy casserole. I got the recipe from a family cookbook that was put together a few years back. This was my first time making it but I am sure I will be making it again here in the future.
The recipe is:
2 T. Butter
1/2 c. onion, chopped
1/2 c. green peppers, chopped
1 lg. can or 2 small cans cream of mushroom soup
1 c. sour cream
1 (8oz) pkg. pasta of your choice.
2 c. cooked ham, diced
2 c. cheddar cheese, grated (I used white cheddar)
In a saucepan melt butter and saute onions and green peppers until tender. Remove from heat and add soup and sour cream. Spray a 9x13 casserole dish with pam.
Layer the following:
1. 1/2 noodles
2. 1/2 cheese
3. 1/2 ham
4. 1/2 sauce
Then repeat with next layer. Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes.

Okay I think all of you know we are headed to China this weekend. I ask for your prayers that we can make it there without problems. We have our Visas' but the Chinese government is being very cautious about people coming in the country, especially the US. Since Utah has had so many cases and that is where we are flying from we have been given warnings that they can quarantine us for no reason at all other than we came from the US. Plus they do not have to keep us together. Parents are being separated from their children even if the children are minors. We have also heard that the facilities are not necessarily clean or have adequate drinking water or food. So I ask again that you pray that we will make it to our home together. We have thought about postponing our trip but there are actually saying that the swine flu problem might not even be resolved until next year and we can't postpone forever. We will try and keep you up on all our happenings. Thanks.

This I think is my favorite salad out there. A sister in our branch brought it to a potluck a few months ago and I asked for the recipe. She gave it to me a few weeks ago so I made it. Yummy! Really I just love it! Here is the recipe:

1/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
1/2 to 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Coarse salt and ground pepper
3 pounds boneless pork shoulder (Boston butt), cut into 4 equal pieces
1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
4 garlic cloves, minced
8 soft sandwich rolls, split
Store-bought barbecue sauce, for serving (optional)
Transfer pork to a work surface, reserving pan juices. With two forks, shred meat. Transfer to a large bowl, and toss with pan juices to moisten (you may not need all the juices). Pile pork on rolls, and top with barbecue sauce, if desired.

I made this delicious cake the other day and wanted to share it with you. It really was one of the best cakes I have ever eaten. I am not very good at making frosting so I opted to make this upside down cake and it was really easy. I left mine in the cake pan until I was ready to serve it which was most of the day and it still flipped out of the cake pan very easily without breaking up.

The first five people to respond to this post will receive something made by me.
The item will be my choice made just for you!
Restrictions and Limitations:
1. I have complete creative freedom.
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It will be done within the next 6 months.
4. You have no clue what it will be.It may be personalized note cards. I might bake something. I might not think of anything until 6 months from now...
The catch? You must re-post this on your own blog and offer the same to 5 people who comment.The first 5 people to leave a comment telling me they are in (and posting their favorite color), will win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift from me!

Chance is always powerful. Let your hook be always cast;
in the pool where you least expect it, there will be a fish.
Well sorry all I seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth here but with trying to begin the big world move and being pregnant I have just not had the time or the energy to do anything that seems worthy to post. Hopefully that will change, but in the mean time don't forget about me!!

Here are the cards I made with the Sunshine Garden Simply scrapin' package. Some of them have stuff in the inside but most do not. You can look in my facebook account to see the pictures individually.

As many of you know I am always willing to try something new and these cabbage rolls are a bit of work but they were delicious. I think next time I will try them with sausage instead of the ground beef. I will tell you that I think you can halve the filling though since I had enough to make another 14 rolls. The tangy sauce was sweet and yummy. I think I might use about 1-1/2 cup tomato sauce and then 1/2c. ketchup, I also added some dijon mustard, gave it a nice tangy flavor.

I am sorry I didn't think about taking a picture of this meal until after the last one had been eaten. But these little topless sandwich bites were delicious. They are suppose to be an appetizer but I just served them with a hearty salad and it was a great dinner. The recipe has a picture so you can see there how they look. They were quick and easy. I think I was able to get them prepared and on the table in about 35 minutes. Hope you get a chance to enjoy try them I am sure you will love them!

It seems like forever since I was able to get into the scrapbooking room and actually do something. I have been working on a altered clipboard project for the stake RS activity this weekend. Jennifer, Becky and I have been painting clipboards for Saturday's activity.
So today when I had a few minutes I decided it was time to make a card for the exchange. The theme was sympathy card and I decided to use yesterdays Try a new technique challenge to use a ribbon frame. I wanted to keep the card simple since the ribbon frame needs to be the focus. The inside of the card says "He always opens a window". I wish I had a stamp of a door instead of a window but I think the point gets across still. Let me know what you think?
