Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons DT Post

Today is my first posting as a member of the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons DT. I am so excited to be a part of this group and to be able to shout out about Lisa's Creative SVG files and digital papers.

She recently put in her store a set of cut files called Oktoberfest. Well, I have not been to the official Oktoberfest in Munich but spent time at small town wine and beer festivals in August leading up to the big celebration. I have to say those small towns know  how to throw a party.

 A little closer to home, my  friend and her family have been celebrating Oktoberfest for the last 25 years. Everyone is required to bring a 6 pack of German beer and then several of us bring the traditional food dishes.
We start with pretzels, cheese and crackers for most of the afternoon. Then for dinner there are brats, german potato salad, spaetzel and dessert. That's where my contribution comes in. Each year I bake the Black Forest Chocolate Cherry cake.

So it's not Friday, but here is a long over due Food Fare recipe page for my German cake. It's a long recipe so I had to make two pages. When I saw the Oktoberfest files, I knew it was perfect for these pages.
The checked paper, part of the Oktoberfest digi paper pack,  reminds me so much of the Hofbrauhaus House a.k.a. beer hall.

All the files where brought into the Silhouette Design software. I printed the papers and hand cut them to the 8x8 page size. The banner and embellishments, were sized in the software program, cut and then paper pieced using paper from my scrap box.

Be sure to stop by Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons to see all the fabulously cute files and papers Lisa has to work with.
