Good Food Friday and a QP freebie

It's been a long time, so this is going to be a huge post today.  Are you ready?  Okay, here we go.  It is good food Friday, so there's that, too.  Today's good food isn't so much a recipe as a yummy combination of convenience items for those days when there's just no time to make dinner.  Yesterday, for example, I was busy scrapping this page for the first event of the olympics at Brownie Scraps and didn't stop to make dinner. 

Isn't that kit fabulous?  It's "Get Lucky" by Flutterbye Faery Designs and Scrappin Daisies, and it was just one of the perks of the Brownie Addiction Club.  This month we had a QP exchange, and this page will be offered as QP for March members.  Yet another perk of the addict membership.  April memberships are for sale now, so if I were you, I'd jump over there and become an addict!  Here's more info:
Purchase your membership before the 1st of April, and you can get this awesome membership for ONLY $6! AND you get a FREE mini just for purchasing your membership!  So go HERE and purchase your membership before the price goes up to $9!
I also want to tell you about a fabulous deal from Marni Designs.  She has not one but TWO awesome boy kits just released on Monday. 
Little Buddy

and Little Boy Blue

Awesome, right?  They're $6 each or you can get both together for $8!!!  What a deal!!

Here are some pages I made with these great kits.  I don't have any boys to scrap, and these kits were still so much fun to play with.

We're almost to the end of this massively long post.  I just need to give you some links to snag those fabulous boy kits and a "recipe" for some good food today.  So here are the links for these awesome kits and the whole bundle:

Oh, and everything in March's store is 38% off through Saturday, so you can save even MORE money on these fabulous kits.  Seriously, you'd be nuts not to take advantage of this!! ;)  And here's a quick and easy dinner you can throw together when you can't rip yourself away from your scrapping in time to cook.

Chicken Club Pizza
(Amounts are to taste - whatever you want!)  Preheat oven to 425.  Take a tube of refrigerated pizza crust (Pillsbury) and spread over a cookie sheet.  Spread with alfredo sauce.  Cover with a monterrey jack/cheddar cheese blend.  Debone a rotisserie chicken, cut into chunks and spread over cheese.  Take a bottle of bacon pieces (not the nasty fake stuff like Bacos, but the real bacon pieces) and sprinkle over the pizza.  Bake for 15-20 minutes.  While it bakes, dice an avocado, tomato and green or red onion and mix.  Sprinkle that yummy mixture over the pizza when it comes out of the oven and enjoy!

And since you made it through this ridiculously long post, I'm going to throw in a QP freebie that comes from this LO I made with Marni Designs' Color Me Happy.  It's also on sale for 38% off right now if you want to hop over here and snag it.  QP download link is here.  Enjoy!

Perfect Day QP #3

"Word Art Wednesday" can be roughly translated to mean I-give-something-away-free Day.  Yay!  There's not much going on today.  I'm off to preschool in a little while to be the parent helper - which usually means indentured servant who cuts out tiny shapes for two hours.  Cutting for two hours is not fun for my carpal tunnel, but it's the trade-off for the free preschool.  I've been working a little every day on getting my house cleaned out and ready to sell.  We have SO MUCH STUFF!!!  It's a little bit ridiculous.  I have two HUGE boxes ready to go to storage that I pulled out of one closet yesterday.

Let's see, what else?  Oh yeah, Marni Designs has this FABULOUS boy kit coming out later this month.  It's kind of early to show you a sneak peek, but I know a lot of scrappers search high and low for good boy kits so I thought you'd appreciate the inside tip.  It will be released on the 15th, so this won't be the last time you'll hear something about it from me.

And now on to the freebie.  I've given you two QPs from March's One Perfect Day, and today I'll give you the third and final one.  Here's my LO of my second and third little cuties.  Lately they can't be in the same room without fighting, so I did this LO to remind myself - and them - of what sweet sisters they can be.

If you want to check out the Perfect Day kit, you can find it here.  If you want the QP version of my page, you can download it here, and please don't forget to leave some love.  You can find the other two QPs here and here.  Have a great day, and I'll see you tomorrow for Thank You Thursday!

P.S. Today is the last day to get Color Me Happy for 35% off, so hurry on over and pick up this gorgeous kit!!  Pictures and links are in yesterday's post.

STS Blog Train - French Tulips

For Me Time this Monday morning, we're focusing on my dream of learning to design.  I've been involved in one little designer "academy" at Brownie Scraps put on by Fairytale Beginnings and I didn't even finish the kit I was working on, so this is the first time I've ever finished anything!  Yay! :) 

Before we get to that, though, I want to show you this fabulous new kit.  I teased you with the sneak peek a few days ago, and here's the full preview:
Fabulous, eh?  It's a collab from Marni Designs and Designs by Anja J, and it's so colorful and fun.  You definitely want to add it to your kit collection and make some awesome LOs with it!  Here's one I did.
You can find Color Me Happy here in March's store at Brownie Scraps.  It's 35% off until Wednesday, so hurry and snag it now!

Now on to my designing dream.  I am so excited about my first ever blog train!  I just recently started playing around with designing, so I promise to keep practicing and get better.  I've got to admit, I love my papers, but my elements are mostly just CU recolored and modified when required.  There are only a few I made myself.  So I'll keeep working on that...  I really loved this palette and theme.  I'm sure you've already collected some fabulous pieces along the way.  Here's my part:

There are 8 papers and 15 elements.  This kit is PU/S4H/S4O use only.  You can donwload here:

Here's the rest of the train.  Have a fun trip and don't forget to leave some love when you download!
