I was talking recently with my girlfriend Kyla about Christmas lunch and all its trimmings. Trifle very quickly became the topic of intensive discussion...what do you put it yours, how many layers etc. So this year I have decided I am going to make one that is a little less on the calories if at all possible and found a great recipe for the Summer Berry Trifle. Sure its still got its layers of scrumptious custard and cream, with brandy soaked sponge but the fresh berries in colourful layers will be a substitute for my usual choice of marshmallow and jelly, sad I know but I am willing to give it a go.
Anyways whilst blog hopping the other day my lovely friend Karen had posted her fabulous digi she created for a challenge over at Digi Dares so naturally I had to scoot on over and see what this weeks challenge was all about. Its been yonks since I've played along in any challenge let alone a digi one and I had been lurking in the background for some time over there and figured given the current Digi Dare #298 was all about scrapping a sweet temptation it was perfect symmetry and time to play along.
Here is my little page dedicated to a truly fabulous Aussie tradition; tis the humble Christmas Trifle. The perfect splurge of decadence at Christmas befitting of any sweets connoisseur.

My Journaling is meshed into the word art and reads:
'I absolutely love the Christmas Trifle. Its a hard one to share.
I want to eat it all myself, but I could'nt NOT share it, that would be a sin!'
