How was it for you?

Well, it's all over for another year. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, I certainly did. On the crafting side, my biggie present from my favourite Santa was a Silhouette Cameo - I couldn't resist having a sneaky play on Christmas Eve. I just did this one cut..................... the coin is a UK coin, the size of a quarter to give you an idea of scale. There is no way that my Cricut could cope with a cut as delicate or intricate as this on such a small scale. So, yes, looking forward to exploring this machine......



Sharing with you a Birthday Diary envelope book that I made for this months Papercraft Inspirations. Check the magazine out for my ideas for sliding cards as well........





Some Christmas photos. Getting the table ready was a bit of a marathon, we didn't have enough chairs and had to beg and borrow some......



and the table soon got pretty full once the food was out.....


the children couldn't wait once lunch was over to rip open their presents.....


Max has always loved dressing up, so this cowboy outfit was a big hit......


This was meant to be a 'girlie' shot - me with Kiki, Alex, Annabel and Annabels mum - but a sleepy little Monty wanted to get in on the shot.....


I love to see the children in their PJ's, at the end of a long day - Milo had already asked to go to bed, he was so tired


My girls - Daughters in law Annabel and Lidia, and daughter Alex on the right


and a lovely shot of Lidia with Max


Hope you enjoyed this peek into our festivities. See you tomorrow x

What lovely photos of your family Christmas. I got a Cameo for my birthday in November but have been soooo busy I have only made one cut too. Trust me that is about to change. I have seen this machine in action and it is fabulous - goodbye Cricut.
Have a wonderful New Year.
Hugs!

Looks a lovely family Christmas, thanks for sharing your day.
I have a Cameo on order from USA, I don't know how long it will take to get here. I need to join some sites to learn how to use it. Any tips would be appreciated

Fabulous photos Enfys, your grandhildren are scrumptious! I haven't seen the Cameo in action so I'm VERY impressed with the detail on the cut that you did. May have to investigate further! Hope you and yours have a wonderful New Year. Patx

I need to use my Expression more...
So having a Cameo would be silly for me. But that cut is fab! Thanks for sharing the pix of your day. The kids have grown so much! What a gorgeous table! You did a great job. But the most important thing was the time with the family! Thanks again, Hugs, Jess

Thank you for sharing. Lovely family. Our holiday will be tomorrow. One daughter and family is travelling from Canada through a bad winter storm (she left a day later), so things are heating up here -cleaning, cooking, etc.
Happy New Year to you.

I can't believe you got so much done in such a short time. Your Christmas looks like it was a beautiful family day. I had an equally wonderful family day. My favorite kind. My only grandaughter is coming home from California for a delayed Christmas visit in two weeks. I'm counting the days.

Looks like you had a lot of fun, both with the Cameo and with the family. I ended up with the flu on Christmas day, but I'm back to normal now and hubby and I opened our gifts to each other today.
Can't wait to see what you make with that new toy of yours!

I've just got a Cameo as well, I'm as excited as you are. Love the way it copes with small detail. Thanks for sharing you Christmas.

Cris said...

Merry Christmas to you Enfys and to Mike and the rest of your family! I was so excited to see your Christmas present....I hope that you love your Cameo as much as I love mine! Where did you find that cut...I love it!

Happy New Years now too!
Hugs....
