In an attempt to work through all my old Christmas photos I am taking some shortcuts, and this layout is an almost total and unabashed scraplift of Glitter Girl's latest page. I even had the same Echo Park sheet of borders with bunting which Shimelle used.
The photo's from 2008, coincidentally the last time we hosted Christmas here, and we have planned an almost identical menu for this year. My Mum and Dad were on a cruise over Christmas that year, but this year's guests will be the same, with the exception of my brother who is in Australia and the addition of my parents, who are only in the country because they are babysitting his dog. For which I thank God, actually, having seen the recent news aboard the Oriana!
The journalling was our festive menu, which I'd recorded in my JYC 2008 album. So that's another one done and dusted. It will be interesting to snap a photo from the same angle this Christmas Day.
