the apple of my eye *Jillibean Soup layout share

Good morning!

I know that there has been much talk of apples here lately.

I have one last batch of apple butter in the crockpot right now and the house smells yummy.

It's the last of the apples that we picked when we went to the orchard a few weeks ago.

My husband used to talk about apple butter made by his grandma and before recently I didn't get the appeal but now- I am so hooked. It's even taken the place of Nutella lately, and that's a pretty big deal.

I love apples- apple butter, apple pie, apple crisp warm with vanilla ice cream and yummy apple cider on a cool fall day.

You may have heard the saying, "she's the apple of my eye."

While I'm not quite sure how that saying came to be I have a few of those, including this cute little girlie:


This cute little girl is almost 5 months old and I can't hardly believe it!


She is laughing and smiling and "talking" so much, loves her sisters and can't get enough of Mommy and Daddy. She's a great sleeper (she sleeps all night already- yes, I'm spoiled) and loves to play. She things applesauce and pears and peaches and peas and carrots and squash are yummy but don't you dare try to feed her green beans. She makes the funniest face when you try to feed her those and no matter how many spoonsful I give her she just spits it all right back out. 


She's such a sweetheart and I completely adore her. 

For this page I used the new Apple Cheddar Soup collection from Jillibean Soup. I mixed in some Homemade 6 Bean Soup (the red starry paper border) and even some Dutch Mustard Soup. I threw in some corrugated shapes, to. Did you know that now there are full 12x12 corrugated sheets so that you can cut your own shapes? I can't wait to try out my Sizzix Big Shot on those!

I hope that you have a wonderful day!
