Choke Cherry Wine!
Hey there. Maybe I should introduce myself before I start bloggin' around here! My name is Renee and I am the latest Gibson Gal. While I am on the CT and am creative, my gift is with words so I am the writer Gibson Gal. (Actually, one of 3, but I blog a lot too.) You'll meet my kiddoes, Sawyer who is 8 and Bella who's 5 through my layouts as well as my husband, Ryan, and my doggie, Kahlua. I also have a digiscrapblog if you ever wanna check it out.

I said I would show off Pamela's new stuff on the blog so here I go.

My calendar says May and even in Atlanta, Georgia, it's still not quite time for cherries yet. Wine drinking on the patio, that I can get into! Pamela's aunt and uncle used to make what they called Choke Cherry Wine with Okanogan cherries and bring it down to her when they came to visit. In honor of them, she created the latest addition to the Potato Bar, Choke Cherry Wine.

I have my own memories of cherries. I grew up in Michigan and my in-laws live in Traverse City where the National Cherry Festival is held every year when we go visit our family. Cherries grow very well in the special area of Michigan as do grapes so there are many wineries with delicious wines, including cherry wine which we buy by the case before we head back. I was buying 2 cases at 7:30 in the morning one time while my husband loaded the car. I couldn't help but think what the cashier was thinking. I finally told her I have a drinking problem- we can't buy cherry wine in Georgia where I was heading within the hour.

Last night we got the chance to preview the menu at a Red Robin restaurant that will open in our area next week. They kept bringing their specialty drinks to the table, the first one being the Hawaiian Heartbreak. Having a cherry on top (held together with a plastic sword that Sawyer and Bella fought over) made this kit a must use! (Thanks to Christina Renee for the duct tape as well.)

I'd love to see how you're using the links!

Happy Scrappin'!
