Christmas Morning LO

Good morning readers. It is with a touch of sadness I write this entry, as it showcases my last Lollipop Ladies DT submission. My term has unfortunately come to an end and they will be looking for a new DT at the start of the year. It's a great one to try for if you're just starting out working on design teams.

The inspiration over at The Lollipop Ladies was a beautiful Christmas pudding with the added challenge of Christmas. I took inspiration from the colours and the holly cluster at the top. The photo is one of my favourites of my siblings and I, a selfie taken at breakfast last year.

I have combined this LO with the challenge over at Once Upon A... Sketch. (I've decided I love challenge blogs that let you combine challenges!) The challenge over there this month was journalling about your Christmas traditions. On this LO I've journalled about the Christmas morning routine we have. It's only been in effect since my siblings and I were old enough to have partner's Christmas functions to attend as well, but I do really enjoy getting the start the day with just the 5 of us. We have so many different Christmas traditions, like mum making her fruit salad (and always running late because of it and somehow blaming us), the relaxed BBQ dinner at Nana and Pa's house, spending Boxing Day over at Chris and Tracey's house with the annual bocce tournament and watching the cricket. It's funny how as a teen you hate these things but once I moved away and wasn't able to get home for a few Christmases you really start to miss them. Anyway, the challenge also had to be based on the sketch below. I've rotated it but otherways stayed true to the design.

Just in case I don't post anything else before then, have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
