OK, OK, some of you know I was gonna bake an “Elvis pie” for my
son’s birthday and asked me to make a picture, so here it comes…

This is the book a
friend gave me as
a present years
ago… it’s filled
with lovely old
Elvis pictures and
“food Elvis loved”
(so it says…)
You have to be
careful flippin’
through the pages
thought, otherwise
the fat will drip
off  🙂 If this is
really the food Elvis eat all his life, than it’s no wonder he ended up that fat!

I never used this cookbook, but when my son’s 15th birthday came up,
two years ago, he asked me to make the “Elvis pie that is in front of that book”.
It took me a lot of time to figure out the recipe – all American measurements
and cooking jargon – but I managed to translate and bake this pie!
And it tasted so well that it ended up being our special birthday “Elvis pie”!


It’s officially called “Banana cream pie” but to us it always will be “Elvis pie”
So this is my E-photo, the pie I baked last weekend! 

Two years ago, I made pictures too and made a spread with that.
It’s in my gallery, but I’ll publish it again here – I love the photo
of Elvis’ giggling on this lay out! 

I was a week behind with an E-photo so last week I also had to make a F-photo

What else could it be
than my feet?
Because of the heat,
I walked bare feet all
week – and you can
still see that as a kid
I did that a lot too –
my toes are spread
from walking bare feet
all the time then.
“Indian feet”
my mum calls it.




The temperatures went down a bit today, and the weather report predicts even
colder tomorrow. I don’t mind, I couldn’t do anything for the last few days
and I’m longing for some scrapping without sweat dripping on my paper!

So maybe there will be more lay outs coming up this week!
Have a good time too you all, je t’embrasse!

    hmmmmmm, de Elvis taart ziet er echt heerlijk uit!
    Op de foto`s zie je dat je zoon echt zit te glunderen boven zijn taart 🙂

    Zelf ben ik ook blij dat de temperaturen wat gaan zakken, zodat we allemaal weer wat creatiever worden 😉

    groeten Viv
