Journal Your Christmas - a bit of baking

DD2 and I spent most of one day with the last minute preparations for christmas.........and a lot of that was baking.
Amongst other things we made stollen for the first time [shhhhhh....we weren't actually too keen on it]........and although we always make semolina biscuits.....this year we made them into a star tree......which went down very well on Christmas Day......along with the mars bar trifle.......with those who don't like christmas pudding.
 The christmas cake was iced and decorated.......we had great fun with the edible glitter.
And some greenery was picked from the garden to make some floral decorations.......that I hope will last through to New Year.

Your layouts are GORGEOUS Jacky - what a shame you didn't like the stohllen after all that effort - send it my way as I DO like a bit every now and then!

Happy New Year

Hi Jacky. I love looking through your blog. I couldn't afford to join in with Shimelle's challenge but now Xmas is over I will start to get back into scrapbooking and may follow some of your ideas for pages.
Off to look at more of your pages. x

Impressive stuff Jacky, I'm toying with the idea of learning to bake in 2012....I'm hoping because I have a sweet tooth I will be more enthusiastic than with the learning to cook thing lol xxx

Sian is so right, your layout exude the Christmas feeling! And I love that star tree made from biscuits. I'm filing that idea away for next year!
