Betty Boop Squash Book #2

I was asked to make another Betty Boop Squash Book.
I purchased the Betty Boop on the front cover from Ebay. It's an iron on and came with the Betty guitar & wings. I also found the $1000000 Betty Boop money on Ebay for $2. The Lucky Ladies was cut from a piece of leftover material from the last book I made. I just used Stickles to outline it. It's hard to tell from the photo, but I used seed beads to outline the scallop paper on the cover.

I linked this project up to Made It Myself Monday at Alex's Blog "You Had Me At Craft". If you would like to add your project to the line up or just stop by to see what everyones project was for this week here's the link.....



Remember to leave a comment for all the talented ladies who post their projects. They all LOVE comments.
Thanks for stopping by.

Oatmeal Walnut Chocolate Chip Cookies


These cookies are about 3" round and about 1/2 thick. I used the recipe from the Quaker Oats label. I just replaced the raisins with chocolate chips and walnuts.
