My Night With the Stars - Postponed!

I have won a ticket to the After Show Party for the Soap Awards!!
This was originally supposed to be Sat 2nd May - the same day that Man Utd play at Middlesbrough. I was going to visit my Dad and go to the match with my cousin but gave that up for a night out in London with hotel and everything.
Phone call tonight and ITV have put the event back until 9th May. I can still go but it's too late to re-arrange things for this weekend! Damn! Shall just have to make do with Sky!
Will be staying at the Cumberland Hotel nr Marble Arch (actually know it as it's very near where OH's old Head Office was - very handy for Oxford Street!).
All I have to arrange is transport to the hotel and once booked in (between 2-3p.m) everything is in the hands of 888.
Party is taking place at the Cristal Club (must Google it!).
I have my outfit - went to Bicester Village last Weds. with Audrey - we looked in just about every clothes shop and I still ended up getting the first outfit I saw that I liked!
Looking forward to this even though I don't actually watch any soaps! Used to but stopped some time ago apart from the odd bit of Hollyoaks when DS has control of the TV.
I shall report back, take photos and do a LO.

Oh dear - part two!!

What a sad weekend football wise!
I fear the FA Cup is now Chelsea's.
Our youngsters did well (boy, did I feel old when they said the ave. age of our team was 22.5).
Berbatov is not fit to wear the shirt! His penalty was pathetic and showed about the same level of interest as he did when he came on as a sub.
Can't believe I was sooo excited when we signed him - he must make up for it sometime - mustn't he?!!
Must go to bed now as up at 5 for our boat trip.

Oh dear!!

Commiserations to all the Arsenal supporters amongst you - you were robbed! Well, the ref certainly didn't do you any favours!
No comment yet on what Wembley is like.
Just hope our match produces a better result!

I shall be uploading a photo of the LO I made at crop on Friday evening, using the mini challenge kit at A Maze of Memories (all papers and flowers etc by SEI).

I also prepared my pages for a double LO for tomorrow (20th) as part of my year album - only one month to go after this - can't believe I started this project 11 months ago. Tomorrow should be interesting as Pat, Audrey and I are taking a trip across the Channel. It's a "Car Park Shopper" trip! We don't actually get off in France - just stock up on board with life's essentials (!!) and come straight back - fingers crossed for a calm sea.

Hello to any docrafts buddies reading this - for some reason my posts aren't showing up.
Sparkles to you all!

Good Luck to the Gunners!

As a Man. Utd fan I'd like to wish Arsenal and their fans good luck for the semi-final this afternoon.
Reason for this? My son is an avid Arsenal supporter and he will be there at the match.
His good friend and fellow Arsenal supporter won 5 tickets to the match! Lucky thing!
I shall have to make do with the TV for our semi-final tomorrow.
Will report back on what the new Wembley is like.

Happy Easter!

Just want to wish you all a Happy Easter.

Have had some time to craft this week and the health to take advantage of it.

Decided to try a Prima challenge which meant using lots of their lovely flowers! The result is shown here.
Used Caliope papers, felt die cuts and crystals as well as the flowers. The photos are of the Camellia in our front garden.
If you click on the picture you can see it all in more detail.
