I'm Back.....

 Hi Folks,sorry I haven't been around for a while but I've had no time to do any crafting what so ever for over a week now and still haven't but thought I'd pop in to say hello. It was my daughter's 21st Birthday on Saturday and we'd planned a lot for her over the weekend starting with a big party for her on the Friday night with all her family and friends,so I've been preparing for that. We had a BBQ and Karoke party for her,there was about 60 people there and her lovely "Mom & Dad in Law" had it around their house,I thought I'd share some photo's with you,warning there's lots of them!!!

Happy Birthday To You

My Two Girls

We all had a fantastic night, then the next morning the day of her birthday we had a champagne breakfast.

On the evening we'd arranged a surprise for her,I booked a private box for us at the Greyhound Racing and also sponsored a race where she presented the trophy to the winning dog. She thought her boyfriend was taking her for a meal so was really shocked when she opened the door and saw us and Dan's family.


The Winning Dog

They give Jodie the trophy.

Then to top her night off Dan gave her another present, a weeks holiday in Fuerteventura leaving in 2 weeks time, I can't believe we all kept it a secret for the last 4 months, needless to say she was overjoyed.

To finish off the weekend,Sunday afternoon we went around Dan's house and had a BBQ,it was a beautiful warm,sunny day so that finished her Birthday Weekend off perfectly.
Sorry there are so many photo's but I really wanted to share one of the best weekends ever. I will get back in my craftroom in the next few days. I haven't had time to look at any blogs either so I will be paying you all a visit very soon.
