Day 25: The Day!

Woo hoo, the day arrived at last! :-)

(The page isn't really crooked lol - there's a bulky embellishment on the reverse side so it doesn't sit flat for photography!)

I used up some chipboard letters; the rest is all from Shimelle's kit - the green shaped cardstock is the packaging from the unmounted stamp, I really liked the shape and colour!!

I also documented the special food we ate by making a menu page and taking lots of pics of the different dishes.

Shimelle's template gave me the lovely shape, and I used a nice script font; cardstock, flowers and bling from Shimelle's kit again.

(The Doctor really likes this page. He says he expects a menu like this to be presented to him for dinner each and every day. I say Dream on, my darling.)

Those good old divided page protectors again :-) From left to right: pain au chocolat, sparkling wine, smoked salmon appetiser, turkey, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes.

Sausagemeat stuffing, roast butternut squash and carrot and boiled peas, sage and onion stuffing and apple and herb stuffing, sprouts (only for The Boy), gravy, PaperArtsy stamp.

Chocolate pudding, coffee and mincemeat truffle, Christmas pudding, embossed and inked holly, sticky toffee pudding, embossed and inked Merry Christmas. (We all like different kinds of pudding....)

We were quite full! I didn't take photos of the buffet tea, though I've included the details on the menu, but I didn't eat much of it....!

Very impressive and detailed account of your food Mel - The Doctor has high expectations! What would he put on the menu if he was organising a feast? And, would he present, photograph, journal and display so beautifully?

I'm not surprised you didn't eat much tea!!!! The food [and the page] look delicious.

Yum!! I agree with The Doctor, the menu is quite striking! And I have to remember the divided page protectors for next year. That's something I've never done in the Christmas journal.

Never thought about using divided page protectors - good plan!
Menu looks fab and the photos are a great idea too. Proof that you really did cook all that!

It looks wonderful. I can feel my hips expand as I was reading and looking.
My family won't even try Mincemeat. It was my dad's favorite. I love it and I think I will make one this winter just because I can.

I like the Doctor and his sense of humor more and more every time you post about him! And I love the bling on your letters.
