My girl just turned 22 years old. Wha-what?!? What happened to the little 5 year old playing with her dolls? She’s now sharing a house with girlfriends and working in a Charleston Bed and Breakfast.
I thought this beautiful paper kit from Hobby Lobby would be a good choice for a birthday card.
Not only does it have pretty papers, the kit comes with stickers and sweet 4×6 cards. After choosing two 4×6 cards for the front and back of the card, I cut a 4×12 inch strip from coordinating paper and folded it in half.
I cut 2 inches from one end to create a step in.
I decorated each page with a 3×4 card, message and or sticker.
Using my heart punch and glitter, tabs were added for each page of the birthday book.
Holes were punched for the string to tie the pages together.
Made my own envelope using the Martha Stewart Scoring Board.
Addressed, stamped and mailed!
Happy Birthday Sweet Girl of Mine!
Thanks for dropping by!
One of my very favorite things about summer is Peaches!
Oh my goodness, I love eating them over the kitchen sink as the juice drips through my fingers. I only buy them from a local farm. Vacationers traveling to the beach stop to buy them on their way to the beach. I bought my 236th bag of peaches yesterday and wanted to make a cobbler or pie or crisp. Looking in my cabinets for ingredients, I decided with the crisp.Here are the simple ingredients: Peaches, butter, brown sugar and granola.I peeled and sliced four peaches. Look at the beautiful peach and red colors. These are Red Globe Peaches in which the pit just pops right out. I don’t add sugar to the peaches because they are sooo sweet on their own.I melted a half a stick of butter and half a cup of brown sugar in the microwave. I think I probably could just eat this melted buttery sugar delight all by itself. I put my finger In it to have just an itty bitty taste.I added a cup or so of granola to the melted butter-sugar and stirred it up.
Next step was to sprinkle the granola over the peaches. The crisp was baked in the 350 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.
Mmmm….it smells so good!
No cobbler-pie-crisp would be complete without vanilla ice cream! Yum yum!!!
1/2 stick of butter
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 1/4 cup of granola
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Peel and slice peaches into a 8×8 casserole dish. Melt butter and sugar in microwave in 30 second intervals until melted. Add granola to butter and stir. Top the peaches with granola and bake for 20-30 minutes.
Hope you can enjoy some sweet peaches this summer!
