Thank you for stopping by my blog. Lately I have been reviewing books and haven't had as much time to scrap. Hopefully soon I'll get back to scrapping and creating some new files. Thank you for your patience.

I have made files available at absolutely no charge. I do this for fun. I am learning the wonderful Make The Cut (MTC) program and trying to improve my skills. Most of the files have been created from free coloring sheets online. You will need MTC software in order to cut these files. Please use these files for your personal use only and if you want to share them with others please direct others to my blog. I hope you enjoy these files. Comments are always appreciated. If you are not a follower please consider doing so. I have lots of new files that I want to add over the next few months.

Straight up Tasty

Straight Up Tasty cookbook by Adam Richman is a beautiful cookbook. And it is full of recipes from his travels. Many of them look absolutely wonderful. I haven’t used the cookbook yet but I can’t wait to try the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes and the Spaghetti Pie.
The quality of the cookbook is excellent. The pages are thick and bound in a hardback cover. It is full of gorgeous photography of food that will make your mouth water.  There are some recipes that I am not at all interested in trying but there are enough that would make this a keeper.  There are breakfast recipes, sandwiches or lunch meals, snacks, dinners, sides and salads, sauces and of course sweets.
I would say there is enough diversity that there a recipes for many different pallets. If you want to add a cookbook to your collection I would recommend this one.
I received this cookbook from at no charge in exchange for an honest review.

Jesus Calling for Little Ones

I loved this little devotional book for the wee ones. It is a board book with the cutest illustrations. There are 13 devotions with scripture that covers 2 pages. They are easy to understand and kept my 2 year old still while I was reading them to him. I am so glad I got this one for him. He loved the pictures and the book is very sturdy and very high quality. its the perfect size for little hands.
I feel like this is a good way to start introducing devotions into the little ones lives. I believe it could extend beyond toddler years to children a little older too.

Willie Out West

This was a cute book. Wille is bored and in my opinion whiney but maybe we can say most small children will experience the same thing from time to time. I have to say the book somewhat held my toddlers attention. I wish it could have been an interactive story but the illustrations were descent.
His mom sends him to "relax" by watching TV where he falls asleep and dreams he is helping fight crime in the Big West. when he wakes up he wonders if his adventures were just a dream or if they were real.
It is a cute story that teaches kids to be happy with what they have. I have to say it was good but not the best that I've ever read

Twenty Dinners

I enjoyed this cookbook. I has included recipes and plans for 20 dinners from beginning to end including drinks. I don't believe this will be my go to cookbook though. There aren't a lot of recipes that look appealing to me and not necessarily my taste but I'm sure many will like them. It is a very nice hardback book with beautiful photography throughout. If you are a foodie I believe you will like this one. I personally have a southern pallet and this doesn't cater to that. Maybe I will venture out of my comfort zone and find a recipe that I like.
