Chemistry Sketches

First off, I wish I could have invited you all over for dinner tonight! WHAT A FEAST!

Here was our menu:
Bistro Roast Chicken, New Potatoes w/ Roasted Garlic Vinaigrette, Cheesy Garlic Drop Biscuits
Pear Pie w/ Streusel Topping and Caramel Sauce

Let me tell you, those biscuits ARE YUMMY! Don't forget to post HERE to win a Paper Crafts Gourmet magazine with over 50 original recipes and over 110 projects! My favorite combo: FOOD & Paper! :-)

Now that I am completely stuffed, I am ready for bed! Before I hit the sack, I wanted to share some cards I made for various sketches. I dusted off some old sets and paired them up with some NEW Chemistry paper. LOVE it!

This first one is for Amy's Friday sketch. I can't believe that this coffee set from AMUSE has been neglected!!
