This is for the American Crafts recipe challenge. The picture is of the first Christmas pudding I made using my Nan's recipe that she snipped out of the paper in 1954.
It is a bitter sweet moment when I get out the christmas pudding recipe. I still use the recipe in my Nan's hand writing which makes me sad but also pleased to be carrying on from where she left off.
Products- American crafts Dear Lizzy Christmas. Two old American Crafts papers from Merrymint and the range before that. Thickers and a Dear Lizzy Spring stamp
Oh by the way does everyone know what a Christmas pudding is? I spent last night trying to explain Christmas pudding and Christmas cake to various foreign friends, French, German and American, they couldn't understand a steamed pudding in a pudding bowl!
( I made the pudding today- after soaking the fruit for 24 hours- I steamed it today for 7 1/2 hours!)
I made my Christmas cake today as well - 5 hours in the oven- guess who didn't get out of the house today!
From Scrapping the Music. THe song is keep the faith from BOn Jovi. I chose the line YOu know your gonna live through the rain. Which I shrunk to through the rain to fit with a very old picture i HAD OF sTANLEY TRUDGING THROUGH THE RAIN WITH HIS UMBRELLA. (OOPS caps lock) . tHE PICTURE IS FROM 2005 when we took a trip on the Settle Carlisle Railway.
For the scrap that peotry challenge. The poem is Robbie Burns "My love is like a red red rose". I chose the line "My bonie Lass " but I had to modernise the spelling. I also added my take on red roses to fit with the title of the poem.
