It had to be a man!!

It's time for the Grand National!!!
Growing up in Aintree, Liverpool this weekend is so exciting for all who live here.
There is such a buzz about.

Our house backs onto the race course and we are lucky enough to be able to watch from the bedroom BUT in the days running up to this great event they put up the biggest and brightest floodlights I've ever seen! lol.

Well, as the blog post is titled it HAD to be a man that ever so kindly put them up FACING my bedroom window!! Even with the curtains closed at night it feels like it's the middle of summer. And then there's the helicopters...
Ah well! I suppose it kinda adds to the atmosphere!

Sorry about these pictures, they were taken early morning so look a little foggy ...



And on a crafty note I have a few samples using products available from the mini to show you.






I've just received some swaps made with products from the mini too so will photograph and post these during the week. They are fab and will give you lots of inspiration.

They are very talented girls over on ILWS!

So, my bets have been placed and my fingers are crossed. And if I win it'll no doubt go on more craft stash haha!

Hope you have a great Saturday
Thanks for stopping by,
Take care x

So did you win? With odds like the winner that would be a lot of crafty stash for very little investment!!!!

Love the pictures - was thinking of you when I watched the race :-D

I also love what you have done with the Fresh Notes and am thrilled to own a copy of the Congrats card. Can you belive with I have used a whole roll of striped ribbon already - I think I am seriously adicted to that yummy stuff! Is there any hope for me?

Thanks for sharing :-D

Hi Girls! I didn't win but my boyfriend put 50p each way on the winner, what a result!! He also got 3rd and 4th while I didn't get a bean but I'm sure I can persuade him to treat me :D lol.

I know what you mean Bekka, that ribbon is soooooo pretty I may need some more soon !

Ali, even though it is a bit annoying at the time it is only for a few days so think I can cope!

Thansk for you comments x x
