December 5th

Well it was off to Crafty Stash’s Christmas crop.I HATE raffles but for once I had to buy some tickets.(Well it is Christmas )So everyone particularly Sue was thrilled when I got 2nd prize.LOL

We had two layouts for the day.At first glance the papers are really not my type.But I just LOVE the layout I came home with.

I used an original picture of my Mum as a little girl.The colours were just perfect for it.

I thought the picket fence for this one was calling out for a home or garden picture.So I used an old picture of my childhood home.

Then it was home to make my layout for JYC.

I designed the flaps to look like advent calendar doors.Inside are pictures of my dogs advent calendar and our Santa countdown stocking to Christmas.

Chocolate advent calendars are still important to my children,even at 22 & 19 years old……..

Its now official the tickets are booked for Chicago. Sandra,Hilary and I are all beside ourselves with excitement.But we have to be patient as its not till June next year.I am particularly excited as it will be their first time to Chicago and I get to show them all my favourite places.

My son wanted me to mention how PROUD I am of him and his football team Stotfold.Yesterday,thanks to Ryan they have reached the final stages of the FA Carlsberg Vase and they may get a chance to play at Wembley.Well I hate football and have rarely gone and watched my Son play ,but I did promise him when he was little.That I would go and watch him if he played at Wembley.But I was hoping to do it from the comfort of a sofa on the Telly.I have missed every goal he has ever scored,as boredom always sets in and I lose concentration.

He has always been an exceptional football player,and he even won a scholarship to a prestigious University in Texas to play for their team.But it proved impossible to get the approval he needed as he was considered to have played at too high a level to go. So his dreams were shattered and he’s now home with us playing for his local team.
