Lost and Found: Wintertime

Here in the Southern end of the world winter has arrived in full force! This of course means lots of cold weather photos to scrap. I went looking in Recherché by KH's store for a kit and found the beautiful Winter Frolic amongst the older kits in the store.

Just take a look at some of the gorgeous layouts created with this fun kit. As you can see it's not just for winter photos.

I'm sure you'll agree that this kit will cheer up even the coldest of days. Head on over to Recherché by KH's store and scrap some winter memories of your own with this awesome kit.

Recipe: Ham & Egg Cups

As you know, I am all about the quick and easy recipe.  And I have another one to share with you.  This one is a quick and easy breakfast recipe.  The great thing about this recipe is that it can be easily scaled to the number of people you are feeding.  And it makes for a yummy addition to any breakfast.

1 teaspoon olive oil
12 slices ham ( thin)
12 eggs
12 cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon chives, finely chopped
2 tablespoons parmesan cheese, grated

*Preheat oven to 350F (180C).
*Lightly oil a 12 hole muffin pan.
*Line moulds with a slice of ham so
the ends stick out over the top.
*Break an egg into each hollow, top with tomato and scatter with chives, parmesan, salt and pepper.
*Bake for 18 minutes or until egg is set.
*Remove from oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes.
*Run a knife around each mould to loosen ham.
*Cool on rack.

As always, I have two recipe cards for you.  One is 4x6 and the other is 8x8 so that you can print the size you need for your collection.

The recipe cards were created with Paradise Dream from Recherche by KH Designs.  This kit is perfect for those tropical vacation pics.  But as you can see, it is a kit that can be used in other ways as well.

I hope you enjoy the recipe.  And don't forget to checkout Paradise Dream in Recherche's shop at Funky Playground Designs.

Lost and Found: Bohemian Blush

Hi everyone! I really enjoy going to Kiki's stores each week to look back on the older products. Today I'd like to highlight Bohemian Blush by Recherché by KH.

This bright kit is filled with beautiful patterned papers, sparkle and flowers. It is perfect for all sorts of layouts, from summertime to celebrations.

There are some lovely textured solids in the store that match this kit perfectly.

Of course, no spotlight is complete without some layouts showing the kit in action.

I hope these layouts inspire you to get a copy of Bohemian Blush and scrap some bright memories of your own.

Lost and Found: For the Guys

Hi everyone! I'm back to shine the spotlight on some of the older products in the Recherché by KH line. Since it's almost Father's Day, this week I'll be focising on some of the awesome guy products in the store.

Although Grass Stains was designed with little guys in mind, the colours, textures and elements work just as well for layouts of your older guys.

Masks He's Wearing is the perfect solution if you're looking for a masculine way to show off your guy with a photo mask.

Last but not least is Mud Puddles, a kit filled with grunge and dirt for those boys who never grow up.

I hope you've enjoyed this look at the masculine kits in the store. Be sure to head on over to Recherché by KH and grab some goodies to scrap the guys in your life.

Lost and Found: Papers, papers, papers...

Hi everyone! Melissa here to inspire you with lots of gorgeous papers and CT inspiration.

As I'm sure you know by now, Kiki Halbert Designs is exclusive to Funky Playground Designs since the beginning of June. Although Kiki has been busy filling up her store with beautiful new designs, I am going to be highlighting some of the older products that she has brought over to the playground.

Kiki is the queen of papers, and her Cotton Candy, Mint Chai and Cherries Jubilee paper packs are no exception. These beautiful papers can be mixed and matched and used with any of Kiki's elements to make beautiful layouts for just about any occasion. Here's a closer look at the paper packs:

These layouts by Kiki's team to show you how versatile these papers can be.
Anna xx, LadySilver and Angelclaud used the Cotton Candy paper pack with elements from Beauty and Grace. Doesn't it just seem like these products were made for each other?
The Mint Chai paper pack goes perfectly with several of Kiki's products. Toadhughes matched them with elements from Periwinkle Sighs for a stunning boy layout.
By using elements from Symphony with the Mint Chai papers, LadySilver created a stunning springtime layout.
This sweet daddy-daughter page by cityangel23 combines the Cherries Jubilee papers with Grunged Up Frames and Burst Into Spring.
Angelclaud mixed the Cherry Jubilee papers with Amethyst Nights for this elegant layout.
I hope all this eye candy inspires you to check out these beautiful paper packs in Kiki's store. Be sure to link us up to any layouts you do with them so we can go out and leave you some love.

See you next week for another round of "Lost and Found".
