I'm No Martha Stewart

Happy After Christmas everyone..
Christmas Eve morning I made an Apple Pie cause my husband really wanted one... I'm not much of a pie maker, but as soon as I tasted it I knew it would make a great layout for our Christmas album..
and of course, I couldn't wait to get working on it..
The title just popped into my head while I tasted the pie..Funny how things just work out!!
This layout took me most of two days to design and create.. I have enclosed the design file once again if anyone else decided that Apple pie was their choice for Christmas dessert...LOL

For the Design File just click HERE

Here are some close ups of the layout and all the supply details..

 I love this apple pie sign..its so cute.. OH! and I used the cut out for the signs, instead of having to glue every single letter into its rightful place...LOL
