October?? and a Yummy Share!

Happpy (GULP!) October! Um... how did THAT happen?!!! How come the older you get the FASTER time seems to fly...and hello my kids.. I know they are growing up FASTER then I did! :) Ok back to business! :) I know your not here to hear my slowing down time ideas! ;)

My dear sweet cousin got married on Sept. 10th (our anniversary and YES I am BEHIND in things!) I wanted to send them a special card!!! :) I decided to play along with a few challenges...all are listed below! I knew when I saw PTIs Make it Monday I HAD to make my own embellie.. so I used a Toaster Strudel Box! (dont you LOVE recycling! ) and made this flower! :)
PTI- Make It Monday!
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Try a New Technique (made my own chipboard flower!)
Inspire Me Fridays- Anything Goes
Make It Monday- Anything Goes
Simon Says - Use Dies and/or Punches
Southern Girls - anything goes

I made up this YUMMY dip- Caramelized Onion, Spinach and Arti Dip it is a clean eating recipe! and homemade pita chips.. it was YUMMY! NOW to be honest.. I did add extra garlic, and parm. cheese... BUT I figure it was still all clean ingredients so it couldnt be to bad right! :) Will make it AGAIN! :) and I did save some for Justin.. because he said MOM.. that smells GREAT.. save me some! :) and anytime my kids want to eat spinach anything.. I am SAVING some! :)
Hope your all having a GREAT week! I owe LOTS of blog visits.. will get by later today and tomorrow! We have friends coming today.. cant WAIT to spend the day with them!!
Happy October! THANKS for stopping by!!!
