A little Autumn coming your way....

Here we are in the month of September and the weather is feeling like November, cold and damp. Hello Mother Nature....please bring back the warmer temperatures!

Anyone for Anya has a challenge this week: BACK TO SCHOOL. I chose to do a Back to school note pad, a fall recipe...and I nice easy card using the adorable Shy Kiki La Rue!

As soon as the weather turns cool I turn to my all time favourite recipe for apple crisp. A wonderful dish made up of apples on the bottom with a oatmeal like crumble on the top. Oh so good heated up with a LITTLE bit of vanilla icecream on top! HINT: double the topping ingredients if you love oatmeal crumble!

Have a wonderful Thursday! Thank-you so much for popping in, I appreciate your visit so much!


  1. Hi Christine, stunning work I adore everything, I like the sound of that recipe with apples, I do that topping with a can of drained peaches, its so yummy.
    those papers are simply gorgeous.
