First Frost

It was lovely and sunny but very frosty as I walked up to church this morning. The grass and the plants look so beautiful covered in frozen crystals of ice I just had to take lots of photos.

I had prepared dinner before I went to church as usual and so was good to find the meat and potatoes ready when I got back (later than usual) just had to cook the veg which didn't take long. I always steam my veg on a Sunday and as the steamer I have is two tiered I put the Christmas pudding that I found in my big freezer the other day into the top tier. The pudding was made in 1999 and was as moist and delicious as it was the year I made them. I don't know how this little one got missed but I'm so glad I didn't throw it out. It was yummy.

This afternoon I have scrapped the photos I took this morning. I had the design for the page all worked out in my head as I was going to church. Isn't it great when a page comes together so easily.

First Frost

I did the journalling on a piece of Pergamano parchment using a nice new font, well new to me Jane Austin, it read
How beautiful the ordinary looks when God kisses it with frost. Each tiny leaf, each blade of grass sparkle in the sunshine. Time now for the earth to sleep, lay dormant and refresh till the spring rains awaken it again.

my As Seen is one of the frosty photos that really caught my eye

Today I am grateful that I felt on top, and although the multimedia was playing up I didn't panic and we eventually got it going properly.
That the sun was shining and plenty of photos were taken

Thankfully no frost here - not sure how I'd cope with it on crutches! What a beautiful layout, Mary :)

Your layout is so pretty.

If you'd like to drop me your address, I would love to send you a card this year Mary

Gorgeous photos - beautifully & elegantly scrapped!

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
