More entries for the Scrapbook Outlet Very Sweet Christmas Competition

For week 2: Make 3 Christmas Cards.  Done! I used the Paper Pesto kit I got (the November kit).  Lovely stuff in there and I do enjoy the little robins.

Week 3: A layout of the family's wish list (or a member of the family).  Wow - I actually completed this one on time to get into the raffle! LOL! (It's a sad indictment on my time these days.  This time last year I'd already started/made a bunch of Christmas presents.  *sigh* ).

Anyway, I asked DS what he wanted for Christmas and told him to make a list or draw what he wanted.  He loves combine harvesters.  He tells me "I've never been on a harvester before" in a sad, longing voice. He also tells me in painstaking detail what each bit of the harvester does, and all about the "gwain" that gets taken to the mill and made into flour, which then gets made into bread.  He currently likes the Little Red Hen story for this reason, and if I do any baking he tells me, "Wait!  I will get some "gwain" and make flour for you!". 

I used the October SBO kit for this one.  Another yummy kit which suits my tastes entirely with lots of green, browns and "natural" colours.

    Awww, kids really are adorable sometimes! I bet Tim wants a REAL combine harvester, too. Not just a toy one. Talk about a hard job for Santa Claus!
