Country Breakfast Pie… Jun26BPC1
There is nothing better than starting you day out with a good Breakfast. So, I challenge you to start today with a good Breakfast LO. Like The recipe calls for in any pie, you need to start out with a crust. So you can choose a traditional crust of White Paper or a French Style by using Cream paper. Of course if you like your crust a little on the well done side you can choose light Tan paper or River Rock for SU! Fans.
Next, like a true breakfast pie, you can use anything you want as the filling, just remember to bind it all together with your eggs (photos). The more the merrier, fill your page full of all sorts of things.
Please remember you have two hours for each challenge.
It wouldn't be a Thursday without a challenge from Our Favorite All-American Girl... Tami
So..."WHAT’S BETTER THAN BASEBALL?"
Baseball AND Apple Pie thats what!!!!!
For our special pie party we combined two challenges for you. Our regular Thursdays challenge with a yummy, mouth-watering apple pie twist! Loaded with cinnamon (paper), nutmeg (brads), and loads of apples (loads of baseball fun) this challenge is sure to be a winner. The good thing about this huge slice of fun is that the more pages you make still amount to ZERO calories!
1. Use red and green designer paper (colors of apples).
2. Use some sort of embellishment like brads, eyelets, or look a huge baseball mitt (nutmeg).
3. Use a base solid page (cinnamon).
4. Load it with fun (tons of apples.)
** Extra bonus points if you use APPLE paper, APPLE stamps, APPLE stickers/die-cuts, or anything to do with BASEBALL.
5. Page can be any size.
KEYWORD FOR YOUR GALLERY BECAUSE ITS STILL THURSDAYS CHALLENGE:
Thanks Tami for being part of my Birthday Pie Party!!!!
Strawberry Rhubarb Pie…Jun26BPC2
Just like the beginning challenge, start with your favorite crust. Next add you filling in the middle. Rich luscious chunks of reds and / or pinks. Layer your page like a pie… I have included a sketch for your starting point.
Here is a great brunch pie along with a great brunch challenge ...
Pumpkin / Sweet Potato Pie...Jun26BPC3
Simple and yet traditional, My favorite Morning treat is a big piece of sweet potato pie, with whipped cream or without, I don’t care. So for your challenge, try designing a simple LO using, only three or four fall colors and NOT any embellishments. Don’t forget your photos….
OOOOOOO..... Lunch Time!!! Time for something Tart and Tasty with your Tea.
Lemon Marguine Pie...Jun26BPC4
Mmmmm….. My favorite summer pie! Tart and yet Sweet all in the same piece. So, my challenge to you is to create a LO that is both Tart and Sweet. You must use both Yellow and Brown. Don’t forget the Marguine. (White & Heat Kissed Embellies)
I'm ready for a story, while I choose my next piece of pie...How About all of You?????
Blueberry / Elderberry / Bumbleberry Pie...Jun26BPC5
Yes… I know there is a difference between Blueberries and Elderberries, But I’m not really sure what Bumbleberries are… All I know is that they are good and According to Grandpa Smith from the Bumbleberry Inn at the mouth of Zion‘s National Park, bumbleberries are burple and binkel berries that grow on giggle bushes, so named because they giggle when the berries ripen and the bush begins to quake, and at the precise moment that they ripen, they giggle. If you were to eat a berry while it was giggling, you would spend the rest of your life giggling. And because I can’t decide which one was my favorite. I decided that I would let you all choose. The challenge is this… If you choose Blueberries then you must use blue circles some where in your LO, if you choose Elderberries then you must use Purple Triangles somewhere on your LO. If you are brave and want to try some Bumbleberry pie then your challenge is to use both blue circles and purple triangles. There will be bonus points if you can show giggles and smiles in your photos. If you are not sure what Elderberries are, here is a web site that will help. www.elderberries.com also here is the website for the Bumbleberry Inn, www.bumbleberry.com
I don't know about all of you but I am getting full of pie and I WANT CHOCOLATE!!! SO....
Chocolate Cream Pie...Jun26BPC6
Good anytime of the day! So here’s your challenge… Start with Chocolate (brown paper, Chocolate Chip for SU! Fans), add more chocolate (use DPS or printed papers with brown colors in them) , top with whipped cream (White or Cream paper). Garnish with chocolate decorations. (brown ribbons, brown or dark embellishments, brads, beads, etc…)
Can’t wait to see how you all indulge your Chocolate Pie!!!
Now that most of us has had our dinner break, lets have dessert... MMMMMMMM.........
Cherry / Raspberry Pie...Jun26BPC7
I love Cherry and Raspberry Pie, I love making all the lattice woven top crusts. You can create such beautiful eatible art work when you send time putting top crusts on a pie. So the challenge is to create a top crust on your LO using ribbons, rick-rack and primas. Bonus points if you use red & white!!!!
I saved the Nuts for Misti.... I thought she might be on around now...
Pecan Pie / Carmel Walnut Pie...Jun26BPC8
In lots of ways they are the same pie, It just depends on what nuts you use. So your challenge is to gather all our nuts, (hardware like brads, lags and do-dads). You need to use at least three different types of hardware… eyelets, brass, buttons, brads, rhinestones, lags, etc… Make it look like your nuts have floated to the top like a Pecan Pie!!!
Banana Cream /Coconut Cream Pie...Jun26BPC9
I saved my very favorite for the last… There is nothing I use to like better than ending my day with a very large piece of Banana Cream Pie topped off with Jersey’s (our Cow) fresh Whipped Cream, while listening and sitting beside my dad at the table. Now my Dad is gone and all I have are the memories. My ending challenge for you all is to create a Heritage page, fill it full of memories that you can share with your kids. That’s what I do now! Every time we have Banana Cream Pie, I share a treasured memory of my Dad with my Boys.
and the best "BAKERS" are.... (Pie Contest Winners)
I just want to start off by saying Thank You to everybody that spend my birthday day with me... I think we had a lot of fun, I know I did!
Next... My Grandmother would like me to tell everyone "Thank You" also for making her birthday just as special. She really enjoyed looking at all the different pages and LO's. My Grandma is not a computer person at all. In fact she thinks they do more harm than good... But lately she has been enjoying the family website that we put together for my mother and her, so that they can feel closer to us here in the east. She had alot of fun sitting and looking through all the LO's, my niece told me. SO THank You Everybody....
I would like to give a big around of applause to all of our wonderful bakers. (DRUM ROLL PLEASE.....)
