Perfect Apple Pie!

Hi Stampers!

Well I feel like a complete DING DONG! I just realized that I didn't get my post pre-scheduled :( Shame on me! I was so tired Monday night I fell asleep really early and just popped over here to check some things and noticed that my post was not up! I am so sorry! 

This week at Crafty Sentiments Designs we have everyone's FAVORITE FAVORITE FAVORITE challenge...ANYTHING GOES! Whoot Whoot! Here is what I decided to do...

I have just starting delving into the realm of making pies - completely from scratch...even the crust - LOL! I have only tried Apple Pies so far and this is the Recipe that I use for my crust and for the Apple Pie I make. This apple pie is so good...tastes amazing warm with cinnamon ice cream on the side or cold! I still need practice on making my pie crust edges look neat and even. My husband is really good at that part - me not so much - but I say OH Well! The pie tastes so yummy - messy pie crust edges and all :) Maybe I will get some practice this afternoon if I have some time :D

For my recipe page this measures 8" x 8". That adorable image is one of my mega favorite Crafty Sentiments Designs stamps called Baking Pies. We have these ordered for the store and they should be coming in any day - our order shipped Nov. 11th so fingers are crossed :)

For the two recipe cards - these are actually a Free Download from Country Life Graphics. I loved that it had the Holly across the top  - matches the Holly in her hair :)

Here is a link to the page that has these Recipe Cards and some other cute Freebies. For my Designer paper I just used a few scrap pieces that I had left from my Simple Stories Handmade Holiday paper pack. This paper is from last season but is one of my favorites. Because the recipe cards take up quite a bit of room - I kept the embellishments to a minimum.

The flower is from Prima and these will be in our store very soon. I layered this on top of some crochet lace and the punchies are from the Martha Stewart Branch Punch. Here is a close up of my image colored with copics and a few spectrum noir markers:

I hope you play along with us this week at Crafty Sentiments Designs! They do not require the use of their images to play - but you get extra entries when you do! Also - Over the next several weeks that are giving away some of their DIES as the prizes for the challenge!! You definitely will want to play along!

Thanks for stopping by and I apologize that this wasn't posted yesterday! I will be back later today with my Cutting Cafe project and Loves Rubberstamps Challenge Project :)

Have a great day!

I will be entering this in the following challenges: (will fill out shortly!)
