Sweet Dreams

The Path of Positivity challenge blog offers a new theme this month--DREAMS. My DT project is a mini album...well, actually, it's the cover of a new mini album I am making!

I got to play with products from Scribble and Scrap. They have awesome digi paper packs, vintage photo sheets and images.
I printed out two papers from the Elegance Paper Pack #1 to create my base. I also printed out a photo from the Vintage Photo Sheet #1. Isn't that photo of the little girls' tea party adorable? It focuses on the dreams little girls have of their lives and their futures. And using the photo sheets from Scribble and Scrap is a lot easier than searching through musty old photos at antique stores!
The rest of my album cover consisted of looking through my collection of cast-off jewelry, leftover paper pieces and lace. I used Tim Holtz' Distress Inks to age my photo and paper doily, and added a little bling with sequins. I found some netting to tie the album covers and pages together and I have a new/old place in which to scrap (or paint or journal). I finished it off with the title "Sweet Dreams Are Made of These."
I am also playing in the new Anything Goes Challenge from Scribble &Scrap.

So, while surfing one of my favorite inspiration sites, Pinterest, I found a cute parody of the Eurhythmics song "Sweet Dreams Are Made of These" on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect to share along with  the Path of Positivity theme of DREAMS.
Sing it with me, peeps:
Sweet dreams are made of CHEESE
Who am I to diss a BRIE?
I CHEDDAR the world and the FETA CHEESE
Every body's looking for STILTON...

Now if that hasn't put you on the floor rolling with laughter, at least it put a smile on your face, right?
And just to show you how much I love all you crafters out there, here's the first recipe in my notebook:
Cheesy Bacon Monkey Bread
2 tubes Pillsbury rolls (regular)
1 jar Cheez Whiz
2 TBSP butter
1/2 lb bacon, cooked & crumbled
1. Melt CheezWhiz & butter together in microwave. Stir until smooth. 
2. Pour into greased loaf pan
3. Cut up biscuits into quarters and place on top of melted cheese.
4. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
5. Place a serving plate over the cooked loaf and invert. 
6. Remove pan, allowing melted cheese to drip and spread over loaf.
7. Add crumbled bacon and serve.
You can slice this after it cools a bit, but my family just likes to tear off the "bumps" of bread.

Now that I have whet your appetite, here are the delicious details of the Path of Positivity challenge this month. Please note the changes starting this month:
