Paula Dean...

... must have awfully soft hands. Tonight I attempted to "make my own" pie crusts for Thanksgiving (we won't even discuss the outcome) and our recipe called for shortening... (wow was that a blast from the past... you know, the days when all you had to keep your brownies from sticking to the pan was Crisco?)... anyway, let's just say that I don't think I'll need to put hand lotion on for weeks after revisiting that stuff. I now remember why my mom always wore plastic gloves when she would grease our birthday cake pans:)

Before I take a little blogging break for the Thanksgiving Holiday, I thought I'd squeeze in Dawn's Raspberry Suite's Color Challenge 19? Here is my entry, I hope you enjoy...




This one took me out of my comfort zone and brought me to the realization that kraft is undeniable my new white... I just can't make anything without it.

Thanks for stopping by! I wish you the best Thanksgiving:)

Today I'm thankful for...
1) pizza with Grandma & Grandpa
2) rainbow pretzels
3) Santa hats

products: cardstock (Bazzill), patterned paper (BoBunny), glitter lace (WeRMemory Keepers), monkey stamp (Unity), sentiment stamp (Renaissance by Design), felt & border punch (EKSuccess), ribbon (scrap), kraft (Paper Reflections), thread (Coats & Clark)

I adore your fun glittery swirls and fun pie crust story. I would say try it again though! Apple Pies are my Thanksgiving contribution and I do the crust from scratch. (I burn water, so reall you can do it!!!!) Way to rock the color challenge.

It's a good life!
