December 22nd - Christmas porridge

Ok, this photo isn't exactly the most interesting one I've ever taken, but the tradition of christmas porridge is so important that I think it deserves some attention. At least I used a medium-length shutter time, so you can see her hand moving and a sort of spiral shape in the porridge. I have to admit I have a love for long shutter times...
I think there's a poinsetta punch available somewhere, but I don't have it myself. What I first did was to use my daisy punches, but I wasn't very pleased. But would you believe my luck - the very next day I found this Poinsetta flower tutorial! Off with the daisies, on with the poinsettas! And these really look like poinsettas too. All you need is two retro punches and a pair of scissors.
Again, you can see the Art Warehouse rub-ons, both on ("memories of childhood") and under ("time after time") the photo. Lots of papers and ribbons meeting in this corner... ;)
QK Frankie again! I just love the whimsy look of it, especially when next to a picture that triggers so many childhood memories...
