On the 2nd Day Of Christmas

Posted by Picasa I know, I haven't done day one yet, but I have done this one and I wanted to post it, so you could see it.. This is a challenge I am doing based on the '12 days of Christmas'. If you want to have a look at the challenge go to the lovely Janines blog at http://angelgurl.wordpress.com/ anyway the Second Day of Christmas challenge is based on special food that you & your family have for Christmas. And our family lives in Australia so we have a cold christmas lunch, as there are no volunteers to cook a roast when it's nearly 40 deg. cel.

so what treasures did I use to make this LO. MME printed paper, Pressed Petals Letters,cardstock,K-ology letters, 7 gypsies paper tab,shipping tags, HeidiSwappBlossoms,some lovely ribbon, Autum Leaves Stamp. I made the imitation Lace by using a scallope ruler, then punched the holes with my hole punch.

Thanks Heaps Janine for this beautiful challenge you have created, I have enjoyed making my first LO so much, and can't wait to get my teeth into the rest. TTFN Gillian :o)
