The C Words

First of all are my layouts for A and B.  I have a 6x12 album for this project.  It's the first time I've done anything this size and really enjoyed experimenting.

I found lots of things for C. 

My reading was The C Words by Mark Mason.  I didn't get enough time to finish it so I think I will skip reading a book for D and get this one done instead.

I found a fab blog called Country Heart &  Home where I tried Country Cottage Pie, Cherry & Coconut Bake and tonight I am going to try Vegetable Cobbler.  I managed to get a piccie of the Cherry & Coconut Bake.

I made a variation of it a few days later but without the chocolate base and used white caster sugar instead of brown and it was a lot lighter and not as rich.

We had chillis, carrot & coriander soup and my son made a cake at school

Leeds played Carlisle in the Cup where Casper Ankergren was a key part when the game went to penalties.

I also discovered another very inspiring blog written by an exremely talented lady - KrisKnits.  She designs patterns for knitted cloths.  Now this isn't something I really need or would want to use for cleaning BUT she is kindly organising a Knit A Long each month where she releases a pattern for free.  Each cloth will feature a design relevant to the month and I thought I would make them and stitch them together to make either a blanket or wall hanging or whatever I decide come December.  The first one was a snowman.  I don't know if you can make out the design. 

and my Red Hot Chili Peppers C words are Chad Smith and Californication (aswell as Charlie from yesterday).

Great layouts would love to do it "properly" rather than digi. x
