You @ 5 & Creamy Chicken Anyone?

This is little miss priss, Tessa, she turned five in April and I wanted to document some of her favs at this time in her young life. I love how she always strikes a pose for the camera or as soon as she sees the lens she SMILES!
Polka and flower paper are CK. I used my giant edged scissors to make the pinking edge around the main image. I inked the edges with Choco Chip ink. Alpha letters and ribbon are from American Crafts. Flower stamps are Stampin' up with punched circles added over top. The journaling circle is from See D's stamps, also stamped in CC ink. I paper pierced holes in a swirly design under the "5" which is from K&I Memories alphabet soup. I think that's it!

This feeds my family of five and THEN SOME.

RECIPE: Easy peasy in the crock pot. Put one stick of butter, four chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces and two packets of Italian dressing mix (the dry mix to make your own Italian dressing, I used Good Seasons) in your crock pot on high for two to three hours (this is good to do while your at church). Meanwhile leave two 8oz packages of cream cheese ( I used reduced fat) on the counter to soften. After you see that chicken is cooked OR when you get home, remove the chicken from the crock pot and add in the cream cheese and two cans of cream of chicken soup. Stir 'til smooth. Add chicken back in and cook for however long you want to on low or for and hour or two on high. Serve over rice and I SWEAR no one will be disappointed. Great for gatherings or as a comfort food. This is one of my husbands and kids favorites, not one little piece of rice is left on their plates.

Have a great day!

Such a DARLING layout! I love it! Love the stamping and the layering and, well....everything!

Oh and you look BEAUTIFUL! Only 6 weeks left. YOU CAN DO IT! Seeing your tummy makes me long for those baby in the tummy days, but we're done, done done! 5 kiddos is certainly all I can handle. It amazes me that anyone can handle bigger families than that! Just think of that sweet lil' peanut that you'll get to greet soon enough!

Fantastic recipe...it sounds very delish! A sure crowd pleaser.

You are really on a creative streak lately...& this L.O is evidence of that. It is lovely...I especially like the zigzag edges. I have never heard of giant scissors before....they sound GR8! Certainly easier than cutting by hand :o)

This is a fabulous page. I didn't realize that Tessa and Colin share the same birth month too. I knew they were both 5 around the same time. Colin is the 15th of April. My dad wanted him to be born at 10:40 and for me to name him standard deduction and we'd call him Stan for short. UGH! I was ready to kick my dad out of the hospital.

The chicken sounds very yummy!
