Baby Shower, GoGo Game Over & Wembley

A long post today, last week, I went to Rachel 'Surprise" Baby Shower, organised by her sister Hannah, it was orginially booked for the 18th, but with all the snow that fell that night, it was postponed till last Thursday.

I've never been to a baby shower, so wasn't sure what it was going to be like. But I must say it was a great night, full of laughter and game playing.

These are just a few of the photos taken on the night.

And yes, Liberty was 'sniffing' a nappy.

Then on Saturday it was another ScrapaGoGo Day Event over in Coventry and was called 'Game Over', which had the basis theme of "games" the GoGo Team did a great job as usual and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. We did 5 classes with plenty of time in between to chat, shop and meet old scrapping friends and make some new ones. And was a great way to get me all fired up for the Retreat at the end of the month.

So here are the 4 layouts and 1 mini book/flapbook

designed by Nichola

designed by Lisa (if you look at the tiles around my photo you will see the it says 'Just Me' top right, and bottom left 'smiler"(going upwards) was going to put 'sexy' but throught that was going way too far - LOL

designed by Lorraine

designed by Sheena

designed by Janice

It used playing cards to support the photos

and I used "J" and "A" on the front to represent James initials.

Then Sunday we where up bright and early to go and watch Aston Villa v Manchester United at Wembley. We travelled down by train, which was good, even if we had to sit on the floor traveling down, but the atmosphere was just fab.

The weather was awful at the start, what is it was me going to London and the rain. Anyway, we had a great time, so sad, especially for Jon & James that Villa lost, but the all day was just brilliant and well worth it.

And finally, using the facilities, I noticed this .... can you imagine having to pay £8.00 for fish & chips and you are not sat down in a posh restaurant - LOL

Well that my news so far, I've got a challenge to do with Julie on Wednesday, we got some chipboards shapes ages ago and we have decided to finally use them - well one of them - LOL, and for once I'e got the title but not sure how I'm going to add the shape to the layout, so for the next few days I'll be going through my magazines to get some ideas of what to do with it.

Thanks for stopping by ...

Happy Scrapping

Jackie, love your Game Over layouts. I really like the way you've done the front of your mini book - brilliant that you could use your sons initials.
