PAPER PLAYTIME BLOG HOP

Welcome!!  We are so excited you have joined us for our Paper Playtime Blog Hop!  Yeah!  Happy Dance!!  You should have arrived here from PAPER PLAYTIME.  If not, be sure and start there because there are 7 Blog Candies being given away on the Paper Playtime Blog.
Here is the list of everyone in the hop:

1. Paper Playtime - http://paperplaytime.blogspot.com 
2. Janis - http://pausedreamenjoy.blogspot.com/ (YOU ARE HERE)


For my project, I decided to make a PAPER BAG RECIPE ALBUM.  This project doesn't take a lot of time or money and would be such a treasure to that newly married couple, your daughter, your granddaughter, your best friend, or even adapted for a "Kids Recipe Album", etc.  Here are some pictures:







I've included written recipes on the pages as well as blank recipe cards in the bags all along the way.
Recipe cards, pack of 20, $1.00 from Dollar Tree
Red paper bags pack of 40, $2.00 from Target
Stickers, embellishments and even papers all from RAK  $0.00
I left the last page blank in this photo, because I am going to write a message to the person who receives this.

For my BLOG CANDY I'll be giving away Joy's Life "Lots of Pun Stamps"!!!!  I don't even have this set - wish I could win!  LOL

All you have to do for a chance to win is leave a comment on this post and have a USA shipping address.  You do not have to be a Follower, but I'd love it if you were.  If you ARE a Follower, please leave a 2nd comment for a second chance to win. I will post the winner on Tuesday.

Your next stop is Sheree -  http://cravinscrappin.blogspot.com/!  And oh my gosh has she got a great project for you - AND some yummy BLOG CANDY you could win!!!!  Thanks so much for hopping by.  Be sure and leave a comment for a chance to win my BLOG CANDY!

Jingle Bells!
:) Janis

Happy Blog day Janis,
Hope you have some what settled in your Texas temporary home for now, I really think this album is simply adorable as are all of the minis you do. My daughter Gabby (the one who cheers for the Mustangs), loves to cook and bake. I was wondering maybe if later you would share where you found the paper. Thanks for sharing the idea, have a great holiday with Hubby and Bonnie!
