The one about the lemon curd tarts


September was my month of perfecting the pâte sablée - a classic French shortcrust pastry for tarts. Love the tender buttery crust that makes feel like an accomplished baker (even though I've only been baking for 14 months)...*winks*

It also meant learning how to make the fillings for the tarts - like lemon curd (pastry cream is next on my list!). 

There's always a little pressure on Sunday afternoons when the folks are seated at the dining table waiting for my baked goods to come out from the oven. My mum (the Home Economics teacher) will critique on the texture and taste. My dad is easy -he will just eat anything I make! *LOL*

Dived straight into my paper scraps to create the layered photo mat. Love that I got to use up some odd-shaped pieces in my stash.:)

Even took my distress tool out for a spin!

And got to use up some of my Bo Bunny stickers.:)

Why yes, that's a Bo Bunny birdie!

Playing along with The Studio Challenges to use as many S objects on your layout as possible...I went with scraps, stickers, stars and sequins.

P/s: This layout was a September fave at The Studio Challenges.

Yummo! That tart looks delicious with or without the paper embellishments. Your family is lucky to have you baking for them and recording the event in a beautiful layout.
