ELIZABETH'S APRON POCKET SWAP

Greetings, dear readers!

Today I am grateful for my blog friends...with whom I have established many wonderful friendships. There's just something about sharing a common interest, whether it be paper crafts, art, food, family...that knits hearts together and makes me feel like I have a "friend in every port!"

Although I am running behind in getting my apron pockets in the mail, I have finished them and wanted you to see what I'm sending to Elizabeth of Creative Breathing aka Bluebird Papercrafts for the swap.
We were to make an apron pocket, name our "imaginary diner" and then put a recipe of some sort on the back of the pocket.  I immediately began thinking of the cool 50's diners  I saw while traveling Route 66. And because the first four names I came up with other swappers already used (are we all sharing a brain here or WHAT?!?!) I decided to name my diner the same name as one I saw on the Road...The 5 & Diner!



I always go into full blown "Panic Mode" when E asks us to "Scrap Flat"! "But, but, but" I think, "I am an embellishment junkie?!?!"



 
 


I just love the little soda pop image! I HAD to incorporate it SOMEWHERE on my pocket...

I'll be back soon with more fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Paula Clare

Wonderful Paula! Love the images you used.

We have that same diner in our town, exact same building. It goes through name changes quite often, right now it's being run by a family from Macedonia(?) and is called the Three Star Diner.

First lol, your picture on your sidebar with the turkey on your head, too funny! Second LOL, are we sharing a brain? Sometimes I think so because guess what? I used a "guest check" image on my pockets too which by the way are NOT finished yet! Your pockets are too darn cute and how fun that you actually have a picture of your diner! Can't wait to see everyone's!

Your Diner pocket cards are just "swell"!!! The front with the diner name and the pocket is so sweet but I love, love, love the back with your recipe on the guest check and the dancing pop cup! You are so clever Paula! Loved the ME images and how you altered them for our Thanksgiving pleasure. I did snag them from Flickr. What a joy to visit here!!
