Pieces Of Quiet


On Saturday we met up with son's best friend and her family and we went to see 'Shaun The Sheeps Big Show' - wow if any of you have a young family like me or have grandchildren take them, as it was absolutely brilliant, at some points i laughed so much i cried - it was basically adults dressed in animal outfits dancing to well know music - including Saturday Night Fever, Bolero (Torvill and Deans take on it) and Dirty Dancing, and believe you me i will never look at these famous songs the same again !!!

For today card i chose an image i've had a while and never got round to using it and i've decided after a year of blogging (look out for some blog candy coming) and 135 Wooden and Slapstick (and that doesn't include Christmas or Transparent Sets) Penny Blacks, i've decided to put myself forward to be on the Design Team for Penny Black At Allsorts, i don't know if i'm good enough, but at least i thought i would give it a go. I decided to paper piece his trousers with some left over paper from the second circle and i've used my 'Go Kreate' Scalloped / Plain Circles as they are bigger than the Nesties.
