Jamie Oliver Part 2!

A while ago Dave and I watched one of Jamie Oliver's shows. On it he made a 'sausage ring', well while I was away last night Dave cooked this for the girls

You take a string of sausages, untwist and squeeze into one big sausage then curl, cover it with whatever yummy things you have, Dave used plum sauce, chicken salt and garlic (that's all I can remember), then you bake. The girls loved it!

He also made apricot pie :0)

So before I went scrapping at Allison's I made a new page for my Art journal

yes it is different to my other pages, but that's how my journal is... its about thoughts I have had. So this page was mostly about the story I posted here. Is about what baggage we leave behind as we journey through life. That I will rise above it all, that I won't be held down by the things that taint my day. Its about lots of other smaller things that made me feel I just had to put it on paper.

Also yesterday my computer monitor decided it didn't want to work :( Lights were on but no one was home!! So now I am using Dave's and he is considering nicking Jessica's for a while. Is different having a different monitor! Especially looking at my layouts, the colour on here is different!! Oh well, will see if I gets me a new monitor now :)

Ok so on to my scrappy day (thanks again Allison!).

I created 3 pages

and then did my This is me journal page, challenge was where does most of your money go/what do you spend your money on.

Then I made a start on altering this broken book

into this

Is for my sister, with photos of her 2 little girls inside. Still to add something to the inside pages.

Jessica is back home, we went to Mum and Dad's for lunch after Church. Glad everyone is home again :) Dave has the day off tomorrow Yay :)
