One mans trash is another....................

As the saying goes "one mans trash is another mans treasure". This wooden Christmas tree was in my friend Tracey's chuck out box so i nabbed it. I thought that i would decorate it and take it into work and leave on my bench for the girls to look at, not to count down the days until Christmas but to count down the days until i am back at work as in a couple of months we are going to Penang.

Sorry the photo is terrible but can you make out the little presents i made for under the tree?

Next up is a very simple layout of Joe playing with the new camera. The journalling is done on the PC so this then becomes a hybrid layout.
The remember stamp is from the Ali Edwards monthly club set and is stamped in Poppy Parade ink one of the new 'in colours' from Stampin Up which i happen to think matches the Basic Grey papers perfectly.

Last but not least is a card i made for Joe who has just earnt himself an apprentice chef position at one of our 5 star resorts. (I think we only have one five star resort) Well done Joe we are very proud of you and i must say that i will be waiting for you to come and practise some of your new skills in our kitchen.

Hope you all have a good weekend.

Interesting post you got here. I'd like to read more concerning this theme. The only thing it would also be great to see on this blog is some pictures of any devices.

Congratulations to Joe - what a great achievement to be offered an apprenticeship at a 5 Star resort!! What fantastic training he will get there. You must be so proud of him for following his dreams.

Love your Christmas tree. New cameras are so much fun:)
