Jingle Bells

Wow what a weekend !!!

Michael Buble - wow what a man and his singing is pretty amazing too !!! - my OH managed to get us seats 6 rows from the front and 4 high on the right hand side of the stage - so i was level with his eyes !!!

We then stayed in a lovely dog friendly hotel (well it was,  until we got the bill and somebody else in the hotel had put a bar and food bill on our room  - the cheek of it, fortunately we weren't charged for it) in the Yorkshire Dales for 2 nights.

Right on to crafting things :

I went and checked out 'The Range' in Worthing on Wednesday (only been open 2 weeks) and came out of there with My Minds Eye - Penny Lane glitter papers for £12.99, which i thought was very reasonable.

On Thursday, i went to 'Craftzone' in Pontefract - where i managed to get a Martha Stewart punch i had been after for a while and some more lovely papers

On Saturday i decided to check out the craft shops in Scarborough - can only comment on 'Craft Inspirations' (full of little nick nacks) as the other one shut at 1.30pm and i got there at 1.40pm !!!

The challenges i'm entering are :

ABC Christmas Challenge - which is 'Jingle Bells' with added punching

Susie & Vickis Christmas Challenge - where Challenge No 16 is 'Jingle Bells'

Allsorts Challenge - where Challenge No 51 is a sketch

Winter Wonderland - where the challenge is 'Cute Creatures'

Docrafts - Snoflake Challenge - week 19
