A Christmas Tradition


My family has always had the tradition of Ham and Eggs on the Barbie for breakfast on Christmas Day.  This year it was the meal that broke in Rod's new Barbeque that he won in a raffle at the butchers two days out from Christmas, so yes photos had to be taken to mark the occassion and record his win.

With photo's also comes the scrap layout right?........so this one is my first for the year, hopefully not my last - I am on a mission this year to firstly take more photos (I always forget the camera/to take photos), and to scrap them.  Mind you I still haven't finished our wedding album from 17 years ago.



Papers/Sticker Embellishements:  Echo Park, Inks, Ornament Stamp and Punch:  Stamping Up!
Title Alphabet Stamps:  Hero Arts, Embossing Folder, Zing White Embossing Powder

My journalling is hidden on the tag behind the Ham and Eggs.   The sun wasn't in the best spot when I was taking these photos.....but sometimes you have to work with what you have as they say.  With the Barbeque also came two Aprons from the Meat Company, so the boys of the house (including our dog Elwood) had to pose Apron's and all for the camera.  Elwood however was I think more concerned about when he was going to get fed.

Another photo I am planning on scrapping from Christmas is this one I took of Rod's Mum and Dad who joined us for Christmas Day.




I really love this photo of them both as it captures them both smiling and looking happy.  It was a most enjoyable and relaxed day. 

I am quite chuffed as we are only one week into the New Year and I have already done a layout, that is a good start for me.  Now just to keep the momentum going!
