Menu Planner & Shopping List
I'm a list maker ... I *need* lists to survive. I often plan my meals for the week on a scrap piece of paper and make a grocery list for those meals, only to find I've misplaced my meal plans after my shopping trip ... and then my scattered brain cannot remember all the new recipes I had panned to try out that week.

I had been eyeing up Cyrstal's Meal Planner kit in the store for a while now. And Cosmo Cricket's Early Bird collection was the kick I needed to put this together.

I just put some papers and elements from Early Bird together to make a cover page to slip into my 3 ring binder. Printed a few of Crystal's Meal Planner papers, punched holes and I was done. I like the binder because I can keep it in my kitchen and not worry about it getting dirty as it is easy to wipe down. It has little pockets where I can stash the new recipes I print out.

But... I also needed a little pocket Grocery List so I made one with chipboard covers and binder rings. (Easy to fill with new Grocery Lists as I use them up.) I also added some Coin Envelopes (found at Staples/Office Depot) and will use them to store a few coupons. The size is perfect to stash into my bag. I used the polygon lasso tool to clip out the Grocery List side of Crystal's page and just added in a few fun Cosmo Cricket Early Bird elements. ~ Thanks for looking!

New Merry & Bright Quick Pages by Crystal. So cute & perfect "as is". Love the Kraft paper. This page has just a few little touches ... & let's the photo & memory shine. Crystal has a few of these QPs coming out this week. You could use them to do a whole December Theme album in record time. Here I took a not so great photo & followed Jessica's recipe for a soft glow as seen in her latest Photoshop Friday #26 Soft Glow. Then I did some darkening of the background to "cover up" the distracting background. This is definitely one of my favorite PSFs!
