I used a Basic Grey plainer one from a while back (forgotten the name) and then went to work with distress ink and a stamp.
I am terrible about sorting out Awards and quite some time ago I was awarded one by Diana for my FH Blog then I recently discovered that Paige had also kindly awarded me it, so this prompted me sort myself out and give myself a good talking to for being tardy. It was so thoughtful of them to award this to me .... Thankyou both Now I have to find 7 interesting things about me !!!!
7 interesting things …now this was hard and I had to ask DD and DS for help as I don’t think I’m very interesting....and I still dont ... but this is what I have come up with so here goes .....
I learnt to cover shyness by talking far too much
My favourite sandwich is Bacon and Marmalade ...yes together lol
I saw the Beatles Live and screamed a little !! …Twice in1963/4
I sang a few times with a Jazz Orchestra, when I was about 40… found it so hard to remember the words due to fear, that I had to have them on a stand by me.
When hubby was on the road in a Soul Band during the late 60’s, I met Ben E King, who then undressed for his set, in the changing room, in front of me … (You have to be old to find that interesting lol)
I ran a youth club (14-18yearolds) for 8 years and during that time I directed and produced Josephs Technicolor Dream Coat, and a pantomime I wrote with a friend … and organized a 15-hour Live band concert using local young bands (Where did all my ‘get up and go’ go to??)
My home, back then, was called Angie’s Café, by all the young motor bikers, who had left Youth Club. They used to pop in for a chat and for fried egg, with cheese and onion, sandwich..
I tried to learn to ride a motorbike …I even bought my own but I had no balance and a total uncontrolable fear of traffic … so I sold it and had to just enjoy having lifts from the lads who enjoyed my sandwiches .
OOPs ... that is 8
Well now I have to award it to 7 others ...where do I start
This was hard as one tends to go for the old faithfuls or the blogs you feel you have a friend at. Well after a hard think I came up with a real mixed bag but all have creativity in common.
Vicki ... her LO's are so creative and different, using techniques that I fancy trying
Darcy ... she really has Art and Soul and pops in great recipes too
Sharon ... her writting comes from a creative soul and you should see her quilts
Ann ... my admiration is for this lady who has to tidy up totally each time she creates.
Helen ... so many fun ideas and great cards ...where do they all come from?.
Pam ...another whose LO's I so enjoy as they tend to trigger my grey cells
Peter ...now here is something a little different ... creativity at its best.
