the Great Christmas cook out

Today is the start of my Christmas, today I made my Christmas puddings, that is always the first Christmas cooking I do. They have made the bungalow smell delicious and they have turned out beautifully. I had the scrapings to try yummy.
Of course being a scrapper I had to take photos and having taken them I wanted to scrap with them right away. This page was finished before the pudding were ready.
I used the sketch from Scrap 365

Pudding Time
So I've not only started my Christmas cooking I've started this years Christmas album.
Next on the agenda will be mincemeat and I have found out (by asking) that Gemma does like mincepies so will get vegetable suet for that.

I didn't fancy cooking myself any tea tonight as by the time the puddings were cooked it was getting on towards 8 O'clock so I thought a takeaway was a good idea. When I got to the lane through the alley I was met by a waist high barricade of leaves, the children/youths had been having fun obviously, I had to kick my way through it, got my meal and came back for my camera. I was lucky that I decided to kick the leaves on the left hand side of the bollard because there was a child's bike across the right hand side which was only visible when the flash went off.

Just had to have this as my As Seen for today

I did another page yesterday for the Grandpop album

New Year Kiss

I have at least one more photo I would like to scrap for this and I may be able to find another. So hopefully two more pages and that could well be it.

Today I am grateful for feeling I have achieved something

I love that your page was ready before the puddings were! :)

I'm also thankful you didn't hurt yourself on that bike...

Great pudding and page - love the title.
I wonder if the owner of the bike knows where it was hidden?!?!

That's a great layout Mary! I wonder why they banked up the leaves like that? To hide the bike or to make someone fall on it!?

Yummy! Gorgeous LOs, Mary. Great start. My preparation will only start after my DS birthday but I did order a turkey at the farm shop last week. Does that count ?

Great color scheme in your layout!

Great use of the sketch and so organised to get things done! Love that photo of the bike :)


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
