Blog Team Call

I have a couple of questions for you? Do you like blogging or writing? Do you like working with great digital scrapbooking products? If you answer "yes" to both of those questions, then I have a call for you.

Kiki Halbert is having an open ended blog team call. We are looking for three to four team members willing to create three posts a month and check in weekly in the team forum. In return, you will be able to choose three kits at the end of each month. No layouts required.

If you already love the products in her Kiki Halbert and Recherche by KH Designs line, then this is a great opportunity to be part of the team and get the opportunity to work with some great kits.

And here are just a few examples of the kits you'll be able to choose from as a member of Kiki's blog team (all images are linked).


Are you ready to join the team? Then send an email to with your name, your user ID at most forums and tell us why you want to join the team.

There is no set closing date for this call. It will be open until we find the right people. We will post once the call has been completed. And everyone who applies will receive a response.

Hope to hear from you soon!

And the creative team created some beautiful layout using these swirls.  Let me show you.

New Recipe: One Bowl Brownies

I am back to share another recipe with you.  This is another great one for when the kids let you know at 8 p.m. that they need to take refreshments to scouts, prom committee meeting or their best friends house.  These brownies are easy to whip up and only require one bowl.  Without further ado, here is the recipe.

4 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate
3/4 cup  (1-1/2 sticks) butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
3   eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup  flour
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans (optional)
Dust with powdered sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 13x9-inch baking pan
with non-stick cooking spray.

Microwave chocolate and butter in large microwave
safe bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted.
Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Stir in sugar.
Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour and pecans; mix
well. Spread into prepared pan.

BAKE 30 to 35 min. or until wooden toothpick inserted
in center comes out with fudgy crumbs. (Cool in pan.
Cut into squares. Enjoy!

As always, I have created two recipe cards for you.  The file contains both 4x6 and 8x8 so that you can print the size you need.

The recipe cards were created using Grass Stains from Recherche by KH Designs.  This is a great kit for creating layout for you little, or not so little) boy.  But as you can see with the recipe cards, it is versatile enough to be used for other projects.

Lost & Found: Burst Into Spring

Yes, I am still thinking of Spring. Florida is headed quickly toward Summer and I am not quite ready to let go of the idea of milder temperatures. Cause once summer gets here, no one in Florida wants to go outside except to run back in to the air conditioning. lol

To help me hang on to Spring awhile longer, I want to remind you about a great kit that you might have forgotten, Burst Into Spring from Recherche by KH Designs and Siamese Studios. This kit is filled with lots of gorgeous pinks and greens that can't help but make you think of Spring. And the elements just sing of spring.

I just created a layout using Burst Into Spring. If you're like me, my mojo is on Spring Break, so here's my creation to give you a bit of inspriration.

Burst Into Spring is definitely a great way to add a little Spring to your stash. So head on over to FunkyPlaygroundDesigns and pick it up for 40% off this weekend only. You'll be glad you did.
