The Pie Page
This is my third page for the Layout a Day challenge. Back in March of 2012, I shared a series of photos that show my step by step process for making an apple pie with two crusts. This is part of an ongoing family recipe book project. I have been trying to get back to the project and the LOAD challenge finally pushed me to use the photos to make this page. The prompt for the third day was "kitchen" so I figured this was a good fit. You can find the original post and the recipe HERE.
I set up a simple grid of 2 x 2 inch photos on a 12 x 12 digital page and then arranged my photos to show the steps in order. I eliminated the two top right photo spots and added a simple title there. I saved this template for future projects in my StoryBook Creator 4.0 software. I'll make a facing page with the full recipe and some more photos for the book. I just hope it doesn't take another year plus to get to that!
It is time consuming to stop and take photos as you cook - with a little luck, you might be able to convince a family member to take on the role of cook or photographer.
Here are some shopping tips for you...
For Silhouette owners - Silhouette America is having a sale on subscriptions to the Online Store. You can use the code "SURPRISE" to save 20% on the subscription price. The sale ends May 14th. There various options available and you can see the subscription levels and terms HERE on the Silhouette site. I just noticed that they have added a fourth level of subscription, the Diamond level,which gives you $250 worth of downloads for $29.99 per month ($24 with the code).
Keep in mind that the subscriptions are an annual commitment. There is a 5% discount if you pay for the entire year at once.

We are expecting rain for the next few days - good weather for staying inside and crafting! I am up to date on the Layout a Day challenge - 7 down, 24 to go! I know that some of you are also participating in the LOAD challenge. If you let me know your contact info on Flickr I'd love to see the pages you've been making.
