My Photo Helper, Nicest Thoughts AND Bonus Recipe!

I have a bunch of things to share with you today. First, one of my nephews decided that he wanted to be part of the photos when I was taking pics for a card order. He's 4 and picked his own poses. What a hoot!

Here's cute!
Here's serious.

And, here's "look, Sees, I can talk like a fish!" LOL!
So, here's a card that reflects my fun day. You're one of my nicest thoughts! Isn't that a great sentiment? Wouldn't you love getting a card in the mail on a crappy day and open it up to see that someone thinks you're one of their nicest thoughts? If I ever got my own cards mailed, I'd love to brighten someone's day that way. But, I'm postally challenged. :)Perhaps I will be better in 2012. :)
Here's the inside.
What do you think? I love the ocean and pebble inks layered on top of each other, don't you? This card used Beautiful Botanicals and Friends Fur-ever stamp sets, Kraft, Vanilla and Vintage Cardstock and Ocean, Pebble a│s ink and black memento. Oval and scalloped oval nestabilities finished it off. All products are a muse studio and can be purchased anytime online at

Oh - and a bonus is a new favorite recipe of mine. It takes under 5 minutes to make from beginning to end. If you love cinnamon toast or cinnamon snacks, this snack mix is for you!!!

Cinnamon Munch
1/3 c. sugar
1 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
4 tbsp. butter
4 c. crispix (or rice or corn chex)

Combine sugar and cinnamon. Set aside. Place butter in a 2 quarts baking dish or deep bowl. Microwave on high, 40 seconds or until melted. Add cereal to butter mixture. Stir gently until evenly coated. Microwave on high, for 2 minutes, stirring after each minute. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon-sugar mixture evenly over the cereal. Stir to coat evenly. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture and stir again. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Spread on absorbent paper to cool. Yield: 4 cups.
Have a wonderfully creative day!!!

That recipe looks yummy! What a cutie. He's a natural in front of the camera. Love the color combo of the card and again how you stamped it so beautifully on the inside. Does Amuse have a publication incentive program??
