Fantastic friends !

Good evening, I thought I would share a few pictures of my hen party.... Which amazingly was all day. It was organised by my chief bridesmaid Emma who did so many nice things in top secret. I only knew times.....
Some of my closest friends gave up hard earned money just for me & I was truly humbled by the generosity. I arrived at Shelley's house ( Emma's mum & my matron of honour ) at 12.30, I thought we were having a spot of lunch but when I went in they had organised a craft teacher to come & we all made pages for a keepsake hen party book with places for photos. ( lisa Bird will be on c&c )
And we used my favourite line g45 !!!!
Then we had cake & chocs !!
Then everyone went away got changed and came back for canapés and champers....
The lovely lady on the left is Emma & on the right the fab Shelley. Emma's daughter is 1 yrs old and she is my tiny flower-girl !
Then much to my total surprise a hummer Limo turned up to take us all to birmingham
Where we went to a greek restaurant, ate great food, drank, watched belly dancing & plate smashing and had a good dance.
And this is me and my crafting bestie Maria. I have the best friends in the whole world I love these ladies, and I thank them all from the bottom of my heart for giving me a special day. Hope you enjoyed a little insight into my life xxxx
