Stars and Stripes in La-La Land

This week in La-La Land we are using Stars and Stripes. I believe the inspiration for this challenge is America's Independence Day on July 4th - so I hope all my American friends had a fabulous day! I wanted to celebrate the Stars and Stripes in American style. We always hear the expression "As American as Apple Pie" so I chose baking Marci and popped my all time favourite apple pie recipe on the card as a pull out - the recipe is below if you want to try it yourself - it was pulled out of a magazine about 20 years ago but I can't remember which one!

Don't forget to pop over to our BLOG where you can check out inspiration from my amazing teamies and remember La La Land Crafts also have a Facebook Page HERE and La La Lands Facebook Group HERE. We love seeing your amazing creations using La La Land Stamps and Dies too.
