Well done if you survived the last mammoth post about all my adventures. Of course I now have a mammoth pile of photos to scrap too - or at least I will have when I finally manage to upload them to Photobox and put in my order! I have been trying all weekend but cant get them to upload at all!! :(
This LO is about another mini adventure I had that I hadn't got round to telling you about yet.
No, your eyes aren't deceiving you - yes that is HRH Camilla and she is chatting to little old me!!! She is very interested and a supporter of the specialised work that I do, and held an open evening at Clarence House for us back in March to say Thank you! It was fabulous!
I had a starring role in that I had to introduce all my colleagues and remember not to call her Ma'am as in Marm (like we would our bosses at work), but Ma'am as in ham!!! It was a nightmare, but I managed not to fluff my lines and spoke with my bestest telephone voice!!!
Sadly the photos that were taken of us weren't at all good - and we were NOT allowed to take our own. The photographers wanted to charge a royal amount for a 7 x 12, but to be honest, despite the occasion, I wasn't willing to pay that much for such a poor shot! I did email them - twice, asking for a reduced price for more scrapping suitable size prints but they were far too important to even acknowledge my email let alone reply to it!! In the end I cheated, and the hidden journalling explains my frustration at having the said photographers watermark across all the shots! Oh well - its the memory that counts isnt it!!
Speaking of royals, her Scrapping Highness, Queen Kirsty of Wiseman had an online crop the other evening that I sat and watched with the twins. Her subliminal messaging must have worked because this LO has a remarkable resemblance to her sketch - I even used doilies!!! Lush!
