Ride Of Your Life


Last night Alan and I had another 'date night' and this time we went to Dorking for a talk by the A-m-azingly talented 'Simon King' (he of 'Big Cat Diaries' and 'Springwatch'), he managed to make me laugh, think and cry about wildlife all in a couple of hours and at the end he took questions from the audience and one of the people asking was none other than Animal Royalty herself 'Virginia McKenna' (Founder and Trustee of 'Born Free').
'Shrek The Musical' was Br-ill-iant and we all had a good time, although very tiring and Alan nearly didn't make it, as his flight was an hour late landing, due to problems at Heathrow.

I love House Mouse and Gruffies, but as i don't have many, i thought i would treat myself to a set and i chose 'Ride Of Your Life', i wanted to highlight the image so it stood out, so i made a frame for it from Round The Page - MS - 'Modern Garland' (as i thought the circles look a bit like motorbike wheels) and i've teamed it up with My Minds Eye - 'Six By Six - Blink Of An Eye' papers, a couple of LOTV tag sentiments, brown twine and a motorbike charm.
