Easy as pie

My mom is so cute in this photo!

Mom and Dad married in June 1965, and not long after that Dad left his teaching job for a position as an investigator with the government. This new job required some pretty extensive training, so Mom and Dad had to live for a time in New Jersey while he attended classes. This photo was taken in their New Jersey apartment in July 1966. Mom was about five months pregnant with me. On this day she decided to bake her new husband a pie for the first time. How wonderful that they snapped a photo of it!

Mom says that she remembers the pumpkin pie filling was really good, but the crust left a lot to be desired. :-)

Product/technique notes

I used the following PageMaps sketch as my inspiration and hand stitched the circles. Hand stitching always feels right on a layout about something else hand-made, don’t you think? The patterned papers are from Little Yellow Bicycle’s “Feels Like Home” collection. I designed and cut the title with the Silhouette Cameo.

      Thank you, Tracey! :-) Yeah, I’m liking how the stitched circles add the “pie” shape without hitting you over the head with it. Thanks for always making such nice comments on my pages.
