A Royal Invitation

Well, how excited was I when grandad phoned me at work the other day to say he had received a very nice letter in the mail that morning.
Off I went home in the evening and there it was- my garden party invite. So I am now officially going to London to have (sort of ) tea with the Queen...well, at Buckingham Palace - in the garden with the Queen present !

Cue excited little noises and photo with my pathetic attempts of concealing my address - but you get the drift!
I agree with Ruth when she said on her blog the other day that there must be something in the air as she had scrapped up a storm last week. I've done quite a few little layouts too. Probably because I have a few photos from Somerset to use and also some of the gorgeous Bo Bunny Gabrielle range ( you might remember I was given them last month to use by the ladies at ATDML when they asked me to be a guest designer for them - shown on this post. I absolutely loved these papers and after I'd used the ones they sent, I bought the whole collection !
Anyway, I used one the other night to scrap a photo of Grandad in Somerset...
Right then, time to away to have a shower,we are off out to dinner at our friends house so enjoy your evening whatever you are up to ..
