I have had an incredibly busy week since returning from the A Muse Instructor Training Event. I haven't really had any time to create for fun. Friday, my co-workers and I headed to the Northlake Tavern & Pizza House for lunch to celebrate a birthday. I always bake something for the birthday boy or girl and this birthday boy wanted Lemon Meringue pie. Because I was so busy all week, though, he got Lemon Bars instead.

This isn't a fancy recipe. I just took it out of the Better Homes & Garden New Baking Book that's in my cookbook collection. The trick is to use real lemons for the zest and the juice from those lemons. Tastes so much fresher than using bottled lemon juice and dried up zest.

I spent Saturday at the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooking convention. My friend Lisa and I signed up for a few classes...most of which turned out to be kinda duds but we had lots of fun shopping. I found some Piggy Tales papers I was looking for and picked up the Crafty Secrets Snow bunnies set. My unplanned purchase was the Cookie Cutter Alpha 'Diesel' from Quickutz for my Revolution. I've been wanting that set for a long time and it is retired. I found it for about half price and couldn't pass it up.

I did manage to make 1 card this week that wasn't related to an assignment. I obviously didn't have much mojo to create this one.

Mojo? Sometimes the simplest cards are the BEST cards. Nice job!

Yummo!! I LOVE lemon bars! My good friend Paula in Illinois makes the best lemon bars! (I haven't tried yours) I had never had them before she shared some with me and I fell in love right away! These make me think of her!

This card is ADORABLE!!
