Day #1 of LSNED

I am going somewhat with what Shimelle is planning on doing for an album. I am using envelopes. Since we have went to paying all our bills online, I now have an abundant supply of envelopes that I will never use. My picture will go inside with more explanation of what is going on about what I have learned that day.I'm also using OLD supplies and buying nothing new for this class. I need desperately to use up some of my old scraps and make room for NEW!

My "creative note" for today was to use something that flies....angels, butterflies or birds. I chose this bird sticker I had.




Here is my first post of Learn Something New Every Day....a Shimelle class.

"Cookies with lots of sugar on top cannot be baked at 400 degrees! Lesson Learned!"

I made these cheesy pinwheel things with puff pastry and they were great. David said how wonderful they would be if I used sugar and cinnamon instead. So I gave it a try...forgetting that with the sugar on top, I should probably turn the temp down. Well, burnt cookies were the result. The rest went into the trash and I had to air the house out of smoke! I'm still gonna give it a try, but need to rework the cooking a little. What could I do but laugh....LOL!

I didn't take a picture, unfortunately, but from someone else posting on the forum I decided to look up a stock photo and it will work just as well for my lesson.

I love the idea of using your unused envelopes in a different way and your resulting LO. My lesson for Day 1 was Recycling too LOL!. I love the LO so I've bookmarked your blog on my blog, hope that's OK with you?

I really like your idea of using your excess envelopes. I will have to save that for a later scrapbook idea...I have a ton of envelopes.

I had to laugh about your cooking story - the number of times i've thrown food away because i burnt it!!
