A Melsh New Year's Eve

This is how The Doctor and I celebrate:


Finger food and dips


Ice cream


Comedy on TV


Staying up till midnight (but never quite sure why...)




I've been loving this paper from Shimelle's kit :-) I saved it for this date! I like the idea of the clockface; I thought avbout adding clock hands but I think there's enough going on already. I don't really need the Elle's Studio number in the middle but having used one every other day through December I wanted to be consistent... Oh, and I ran out of 'S's so used an '&' instead, did you notice?!



What do you do? Do you celebrate? Go out? Stay in?

Mel,
Totally awesome page!
We did about the same, but at a friend's house. Wii Games and Rockband kept everyone entertained until midnight.

Great page, what a good end to December! We went to a local restaurant that has a private members bar (our friend's son in law is manager)and they have a NYE party up there. The food was remarkabley like yours, lots of scrummy chinese inspired finger food, king prawns in tempura batter was my fave! Stayed there until 1am then back to friends for champagne. Rolled home at 3am and boy do I feel tired today!

The Ben & Jerry's looks good! That is my fav flavour! We did the same, Steve worked until 10pm so we stayed in, had a take-away and watched Jo Brand on the tely.

We were very quiet - didn't get past 11pm :-(
As is usual, we seem to make up for it all on New Year's Day - it's always adventure day here .... seems to work for us with the kids and the extended family.

We went to friends, and I never thought once to take a photography even though I wanted to do a New Year's Eve page for the journal. The food looks great--and ours was too!

Oink! Lovely yummy stuff!

The layout is great. No, I didn't notice the "&" instead of an "s"!

Happy New Year!
