In club this month, we made a 6x6 scrapbook page to fit the Thanksgiving theme. I wanted to make a simple turkey, because most of my customers have children. The body of the turkey was made with the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge by cutting out a three inch oval. SU's large oval punch was used for the feathers. For the comb of the turkey's head, I used a bow from a giftbox of a Cricut cartridge. His beak was made from a square punch cut in half to make a triange. The waddle came from yet another punch...the wing of the SU's bird punch.
Of course, this scrapbook page will look much more complete showcasing a picture. I plan to have each of my family members write something that they are thankful for on the pull out tag. Gobble-gobble!

This recipe is familiar to all of us, but its presentation caught my eye right away. A friend of mine brought this seven layer dip in individual servings to our last stamping club, and I'm stealing the idea to take to a ladies event tonight. Thanks for sharing, Kim! Here is the recipe just in case you want to use the idea, too. Kim won't mind. She's a sweetheart.
2 cans refried beans
1 package taco seasoning
2 cups guacamole
1 8oz. container sour cream
2 cups salsa or pico de gallo
1 cup shredded cheese
1/2 bunch sliced green onions
1 small can sliced black olives, drained
9 ounce plastic tumblers
In a small bowl, mix refried beans and taco seasoning. Layer the ingredients in each cup in the following order: beans/taco seasoning mix, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, shredded cheese, tomatoes, olives, and green onions. Store in the refrigerator until serving time and serve with chips. I used Frito Scoops. This recipe makes about 12 nine ounce cups.
