Hello and welcome to our day 12!!
The focus of today's story is hubby and his last day at work for the year - YAY!! This is his very first Christmas where he has had a real break in his adult working life! Prior to his current job he was either in retail (horrible, horrible hours throughout the silly season!!) or as a FIFO worker which meant he was either home by chance or we celebrated on a different day when he was home. He has a whole 3 weeks off and we have even booked ourselves (the 4 of us) a mini holiday to one of our fave local-ish destinations Margaret River after Christmas Day. We haven't been since we had kids - we are so excited!!
He baked up a bit of a storm for his workmates for a lunch they had yesterday and we managed a snap of some of the tasty looking treats he made (I am yet to taste as I am only feeling "normal" today - FINALLY!) that made it for day 12's photo of the day :)
I layered up a gold glitter die cut with the 12 from the kit which I have not only glossy accented but prior to applying that I stamped in gold ink just for something a little different :) A couple of veneer stars from the kit and our photo and date card are done!!
A close up of the little embellishment cluster on the bottom card. This started as a 6x4 grid card. I stuck down the 2 lots of washi tape then I have attached the sewn pocket to the right hand side of the card and slipped in 2 of the recipes Alan used. A flair from the kit and some twine from my stash. Oh, and of course, the journalling :)
The front of the recipe cards - I simply created a new doc in PSE10 at the right size to fit in the pocket and copied the recipes over. Popped both onto a 6x4 document and printed onto kraft cardstock. Trimmed them down, rounded the corners, did a little bit of writing on the back and voila ;)
And just in case we ever need to find where he found the recipes my little bit of writing on the backs of the cards :)
Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our day 12. I am off to get some lunch - I am feeling hungry. And grateful that I am feeling hungry, that means things are improving!!
