Friday stuff

I was prepared for a call in to work today, but it never came. So I guess my weekend started early. :)

Here's what I got done today:

Laundry.

Cleaned my house. (Well, the main floor anyway. The basement, I'm leaving for another day.)

Went for a walk with my wonderful friend, Val. She's so great.

Baked some banana bars for my family, which were a hit.



Here's the recipe:

1/2 cup margarine
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup cocoa

Beat together margarine and sugar. Add egg & vanilla. Beat in bananas, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Spread half of mixture into a greased 9x13 pan. Add cocoa to remaining mixture and mix together. Pour over first half of batter. Swirl with a knife. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes. Cool. Cut into bars.

I also managed to get a layout done this afternoon, inspired by a challenge at My Scrap Shoppe. It's their monthly online crop (to see more challenges, click here.)

The challenge was to use the following on your page....
- a flower
- a label sticker (or diecut)
- a scripted font
- 5 brads

Here's what I came up with:



I didn't have a label sticker (or diecut) that went well with the new Bo Bunny papers I was using, so I made my own in Word.



How is your Friday going?
