Photos from 2022 Christmas baking with 3 of my DGC. I rarely do a 2 page spread, but I had 16 photos I wanted to include...so 2 page it is! I used Graphic 45 Let it snow collection and some white Bazzill for the background paper. I matted each photo. The title work, candies, peppermint sticks and the peanut butter/fudge/peanut cluster at the bottom of the left page were all images from pngwing.com that I grouped and cut out with the Cameo. The tree, candy canes and baker on the right page were also from pngwing.com. I printed the journaling on the computer and added it with strips on the right page. The 2022 was also cut with the Cameo. I made tiny tags to add to the photos to identify the candies we made. I also added a LOT of crystal glaze to the candy canes and the circle candies. The other tags were actually from Echo Park's Remember the Magic Ephemera pack. We always have fun baking together...great memories!
Journaling reads:

Every Christmas since you all were about 6 or 7 years old, we'd spend a day making cookies and candy for Christmas treats. When you were younger, I can remember thinking..."I don't think I can do this again!"... but every year we do it again! Baking with you three has always been an adventure. Teaching you to read recipes... watching you move from baking with assistance to being able to follow the recipe and do it all by yourself. Sometimes the outcome isn't picture perfect, but the taste is always great! This year, Helen Grace, you were 17, and the boys were 18. I'm so blessed to be able to spend this time with you three every Christmas and I hope you'll always want to spend a day with Grandma, just cooking and baking!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
