Speaking of Traditions...

Today I was so pleased to open my email and find a new and terrific project from designer Kristie Coleman.  I love when our COOKBOOKIN'TM fans come up with cool and innovative uses for our papers and embellishments.  I would have never thought to use our Preserving Memories paper for a Thanksgiving page, but it looks fabulous!  

I especially love how Kristie included the thoughtful journaling block to tell her family story.  I sincerely hope that each of you will remember to take a moment to capture these priceless memories, stories, and especially recipes!  These are truly priceless heirlooms that will be treasured for generations to come.  It's so easy to say "I'll come back and journal later" - we all do it!  This holiday season I want to encourage you to take a moment and write a note about your families annual cookie decorating assembly line and Great Grandma's famous rum cake recipe. You won't be sorry you did!  Here's a new idea...you can always go back and scrap it later!  


  1. Gorgeous Page Kristie!!! Alice you are so right about journaling!! I tend to write all my journaling on the back of my layouts and no one can really read it, but it's there!!

  2. This is so beautiful. Thanks for playing along.
