The Good Luck Continues


As most of you know I am a huge Barry Manilow fan and have been lucky enough to see his shows over here and in Las Vegas. I am a member of the BM fanclub so am kept upto date on a regular basis on all things Barry. Anyway the man himself has a new CD out and has been busy promoting it in the US and last week the UK and as part of his trip over here he filmed 'An Audience with' (which will be shown later in the year). Tickets for the event were like gold dust and were offered only to members of the fan club via a ballot which I put my name in and luckily I was drawn out for 2 priority tickets - yay!! The filming took place at the BBC last Wednesday which was also our 9th wedding anniversary. It was a fab evening despite all the queueing, hanging about and the heat in the studio. Barry was fab, singing loads of his hits as well as a new track from his new CD. There were loads of celebs at the filming too, we saw Anton du Beck, Jason Gardiner, Adam Woodyatt, Stacey Soloman, Jane McDonald, Lulu and loads more. Cant wait to see it on tv now - look out for me and Tom dancing away to Copacabana!! Below is a pic of the stage, its the only one I managed to get as there was a strict no pics rule once the show had started.

On Saturday I met up with the lovely Jules to go to the Kings Hill crop. We had a great day scrapping and chatting, I managed 5 layouts, a couple of which I am sharing with you on here...

The first one is of Tom and Scarlett, he thought she was going to give him a lovely little kiss on the cheek - how wrong was he. She gave him a kiss but it was a big wet licky kiss. I used MME papers from the Stella & Rose collection. The title was done with AC Thickers. Apologies for the quality of the pictures, not sure why they are not so good.

The second layout is of Daisy. The papers are all Fancy Pants, I bought them last year and have finally got round to using them. I just added some pearl brads and some pearls and bling along the bunting.

Yesterday was a fabulous day, hot and sunny and just perfect for being outside. We went and bought some plants and pots and they are now arranged under the kitchen window. After my spot of gardening we sat outside and had our lunch, it was lovely and one of our neighbours commented that we looked liked we were in Spain - if only!!

Well thats all for now, I will try and post again this week and share some more pics of layouts and my little bit of garden.

Thanks to a giveaway on the fab My Pink Stamper I am now the owner (or at least I will be when it arrives) of the Bubblegum Stripes Cricut Imagine cartridge. I have only been following MPS since I got my Imagine so I am happy, happy, happy to have won. Any of you that have a Cricut should pop over and have a look, Robyn does some fab video tutorials. You will find the blinkie on the side bar of my blog.

Have attached a couple of layouts for you to see, sorry the pictures are not that good. Should really wait and take pics when the light is better.

The first one is of Scarlett at her first football match, I used bazzil cardstock and one sheet of October Afternoon paper which I trimmed with an EK Sucess punch. The ribbon and journalling card are from my stash. The title is American Crafts thickers.

The second layout is of Daisy and was done using a Total Papercrafts kit. I didnt follow the design that was suggested, I ended up doing my own thing. All I added was some American Crafts thickers for the title, a bloom and a bling swirl which was done using the Bazzil Jewell templates.

Thats all for now, thanks for looking
