Christmas Decor and a Concert!

Ok I have been missing for a while again, unfortunately I haven't been overly well for a while now and it got to the stage where I was actually just quite ill!  But I have been into hospital to get things checked out and hopefully it is mostly sorted out now and things can get back to normal, well as normal as my life ever is anyway! ;)  But of course I have not gotten around to all sorts of things like blog posts or blog hopping, I have barely even been on Pinterest for a while! :o  So I have been missing all my normal fixes and I am looking forward to getting back to them! :)

So something I have not yet uploaded was this Christmas wall hanging I did using Bo Bunny Father Christmas!  The chipboard alphabet is Basic Grey and yes that is an L and not a 1!  Paul said to me it looks like no e1 and now that is all I can see!  (Bet that is all you can see now too!)

Supplies Used :
Patterned Paper : Father Christmas; Berries; Celebrate; Holly; Poinsettia/Father Christmas
Cardstock : Wine Dot
Chipboard : Father Christmas 12x12 Chipboard
Stickers : Father Christmas Dimensional Stickers
Trinkets : Father Christmas
Jewels : Father Christmas
Trim : Olivia Chiffon Rose Trim
Stamps : Enchanted Clear Stamps
Embossing Powder
Distress Inks

Well something good was that me and Paul went to a concert last week!  We went to go and see...

Theory of a Deadman was the first support act and I was very excited because I love both of the support acts!  I hate my Life by Theory of a Deadman is one of my favourite songs ever, there is no way I can listen to it without singing along and smiling!  They werereally great, although man they do swear quite a bit  lol!


The second support act was Black Stone Cherry who are just such a fantastic band I really enjoy thier music and they were definitely fantastic live I really enjoyed seeing them!

Alter Bridge was the main act and although I like them and was looking forward to seeing them, except for a couple of songs I have only started listening to them recently so I was more excited about the other two bands that I knew better.  But let me tell you Alter Bridge was totally AWESOME they were really amazing live and I would go see them again in a heartbeat!  There is nothing quite like going to a concert and the feeling of  the music thumping through your whole body!  We are going to see Deff Leppard, Motley Crue and Steel Panther in a couple of weeks and I can't wait!

Well thats it for now but will be back with some more general updates in a day or two as my blog has been ending up as mostly just my scrapping stuff and I would like it to cover a lot more things so hopefully once I have recovered a bit more and built myself back up again I will find more energy for all the things I would like to include!
