{4.11.2011} Hippity Hop

Happy H{ippity} Hop!!!

This was a very busy weekend for me filled with baking and crafting.  I love to bake!  It is something I have loved to do since I was just a little bit.  I remember waking up on the weekends and making pancakes or waffles all the time.  Course, I’d make them red or green or blue.  Ha.  I also realize that isn’t baking, but that is how it all started.  🙂

So, when I have a bit of freedom on the weekend I LOVE to bake something new.  Yesterday, I made this amazing lemon pull apart bread.  I have a weakness for breads.

#1, because they are so yummy.
#2, because they can be a bit of a challenge.

You can read about it on my food blog HERE if you’d like (my baking skills have advanced a little from my pancake days, ha).  I’m generally not a fan of lemon anything, but this was so amazing, I didn’t mind it was lemon, in fact I LOVED it.  Ha.  Course, after I zested my lemon for this recipe, I was left with a naked lemon.  To use it up, I made some creamy lemon bars (these have an oatmeal crust) to take into work.  I’ll share that recipe if they have a good review.  🙂

So, are you ready for week 2 of our challenge???

The color combo this week is cream, kraft, teal and red.  I can’t wait to see all the great creations from this color combo!!!

I brought out the House a Home stamp set this week!  I have been on a scene creating kick for my cards lately.  I think it all started with my spring magnet from last Friday!  Ha.  I just love this really tall hill with a love filled home at the top.  This is a definite must have stamp set.  It is full of great scrapbooking and card making images.

I can’t wait to hop on over to Lisa’s blog to see what she made for us this week!  She has been on a FANTASTIC crafty roll lately with her beautiful creations!
