My Turkey Lurkey Layout

At Leigh's on Monday night I successfully completed two LOs. I'm really pleased with both of them but one can't be revealed just yet. I really love this LO entitled 'My turkey lurkey layout' though :) The multiphoto LO shows the story and I've journalled around the outside to tell the story too. We decided that, since we were getting all our veg from our parents' allotment/gardens, we would order a turkey from the farm shop. So on 1st December there we were discussing turkeys with the butcher. I'm not quite sure how but we ended up with an order for a 5kg turkey that would feed 6-8 people, when it was just going to be the two of us! On Christmas Eve we duly rocked up to the farm shop to collect our turkey and found the butcher in a turkey hat (PHOTO OP-ARAMA)!!! Tony was very pleased with the whole experience and it's a lovely photo of him and the turkey in the centre of the page. On Christmas day I stuffed the turkey a la Jamie Oliver (and by that I mean with clementines and rosemary rather than actually mincin Jamie Oliver and putting him inside!!) and cooked him for the required amount of time. As I took the turkey out of the oven Tony got out the Jamie Oliver guide to carving a turkey and by the time we sat down we had one yummy, well carved turkey I can tell you. It was quite possibly the best bit of turkey I've ever tasted. In fact, there's no competition- it definitely was. And I made a thank you card for the farm shop too. The supplies for these are mostly thanks to Leigh it has to be said. Oh, and the LO is a scraplift of a LO I saw on the sassafras blog by the very talented Megan Klauer. Great inspiration!
