dd04: gingerbread

december fourth featured another favorite annual event, we like to check out the somewhat famous local gingerbread contest each year. it's about a forty-five minute ride from our house, so we tend to tie it to a meal out and meet up with friends from that neck of the woods. this year we had a wonderful dinner at the porterhouse pub with our friends kim and dave, then strolled over to check out the gingerbread and the christmas lights at peddler's village.

(vintage: cookies and candies from an old xmas cookbook, backed with index stock and cut out; patterned paper: studio calico + some pink paislee packaging + my mind's eye on the back of the facing page; journaling tag: making memories; fabric covered chipboard numeral: american crafts; instagrammed photos printed on kodak premium glossy paper; adhesives: staples brand gluetape runner, 3m foam tape)
page-wise, this is about as simple as it gets: a couple of instagram pics, some fussy-cut vintage cookie and candy elements, and a few sentences to sum it all up. glue and go... job done! ♥
