Dinkle's Bakery in Chicago and I am always so excited because now I think "It's Christmas!".
Last year Shiane was at home when the Stollen arrived in the mail and she wanted to know what it was. I reminded her about Larry sending me "Stollen bread" and she had an odd look on her face and asked "why does he steal it" so I had to explain to her "it's Stollen, not stolen".

I am really happy with how the font on Quarter Note welds together. The tails on the lettering are generous enough to allow the word to flow well without making them to squished together like you have on some of the cursive fonts. I ran the white layer of the words upside down in my Xyron and then sprinkled with white Doodlebug glitter. You might need to click the picture to see the glittering and how well it turned out. On the little date tag I used a bread tag cut from Fabulous Finds. I added the star brads to attach to the picture because I thought they coordinated well with the stars on the patterned paper.
The holly leaves are from Cheerful Seasons, I am so lovin this cartridge! Again I would like to thank the mysterious "Cricut Circle Friend" who was so generous in sending this to me! The layering on the images is great. I always love a little flourish and on the holly it is fabulous. The little berries are cut out of Mica Stardream and I just added white dots with the gel pen where there were little circles cut.
This is the last of the layouts from the kits I had prepared and I guess now I will have to find something else to work on...hhmm, what to do what to do *okie thinks and realizes she better get to crackin on getting stuff ready for her Annual Girlfriend Christmas party*. I think I will be having plenty to do for the next month!
