"Telling Stories"

Good morning all. Gosh it was blowing a gale last night again, quite mild though. Need to go shopping today as we're running out of food again...I don't know where it all goes to!

A layout today using photos taken on Monday.....it's not often I like photos of myself but I do like the ones taken on Monday!

Trish from Template Dreams has recently opened a new store at Scrap Takeout who run a monthly Build your Own Carryout Box with each pack costing only $1.00 for the duration of the month - 
Each month our designers will have coordinating products for you!  All you have to do is mix and match to create your own unique kit (or Carry Out) for the month! 
Trish has two packs this month called "Telling Stories".

I've created my layout in Craft Artist using a sketch for inspiration. The top photo is me with my brother and three sisters, the first one we've had taken in ages. I'd like to say I baked the cake myself but it came from M&S and being the dutiful crafter that I am the ribbon went straight into my bag when the cake was cut lol.

Challenges entered:
Pink Elephant - celebrate
I had a box of macaroons just like those from M&S last weekend! They were lovely :)
The Crafting Cafe - let's celebrate
