Day one of Just One Sketch has arrived! Although it arrived with a panic when I couldn't remember how to access the blog that the prompts were going to be on. Thankfully a quick email rectified that - although I can almost see my report card now 'Deborah needs to pay more attention in class. Must try harder.' This class has coincided with my husband being away for the week and so that means I can be as messy as I like and no one is going to moan about wanting to use the desk but they can't because all my craft stuff is on it. Happy days! He had the opportunity to go out to Portugal with my brother in law and has gone to rest, relax and recharge his batteries for a week. Lucky thing.
I digress. Here's my layout for the first day of Just One Sketch
I've been longing to use this photo that was taken on Christmas Day. My daughter had brought over her puppy's cage with the thought that if she was overwhelmed by all the people and attention or if she got over excited, she could go into her bed and have some quiet time on her own. However, the children thought the cage was wonderful and ignored all their new presents so they could take it in turns to lock themselves into the dog cage! Coco couldn't get a look in!
Re yesterday's post and the cheese baker - it's basically a ceramic dish that you can cooked baked brie or baked camembert in. You take your round of cheese, slice off the top skin, drizzle olive oil over it and insert a few fine slices of garlic in the top. Sprinkle with herbs if you like and then place in the dish, cover with a lid and put in the oven for about 15 mins. The cheese inside softens, the flavours of the garlic and herbs get into it and you serve it with crusty bread or bread sticks and it makes like a mini fondue. Delicious!
