place, please go back to
You won't want to miss all the inspiration from our team.......
or the chance to win a fabulous prize :-)
All month long, Scrap~tures has been celebrating its first birthday with challenges and inspiration daily. I had a birthday card to make this month so chose the challenge from Day 3 found here
If the young lady for whom the card is intended, was at my house for her birthday, I'd probably make her a delectible chocolate cake. Here is our family's favourite recipe!

Chocolate Oatmeal Cake

½ cup oatmeal
1 cup boiling water
½ cup margarine
4 TB cocoa

1½ cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of salt

Mix first set of ingredients and let sit a few min. Add rest of ingredients. Mix and pour into 8x8 pan. Bake at 350ยบ for 35 min.

This Scrap~tures blog hop will run from today, January  21st  through January 23. We will be
drawing for winner February 1st, along with all the other draws.

If you sign up as a follower and make a comment on my blog between now and then I'll do a separate draw for a wee little prize from moi. Happy Scrapping everyone. Thanks for visiting!
