Busy Weekend

On Saturday we were up in Glasgow for a tour round the BBC studios at Pacific Quay that were officially opened just over a year and a half ago. I've "borrowed" the photos from the BBC website as we weren't allowed to take photos beyond the initial reception area.
This bit is called "the street" and is used for lots of meetings and even recording some programmes. Because of the material on the walls the sound doesn't carry as you would usually expect in a large open space. The TV studios and radio studios are underneath each level.

We got to visit where the news and weather is filmed, the Sportscene area and saw inside the radio studios and the TV studio where the set was dressed for a new CBBC show "Copycats".

Then we got to visit the lab where Kirsten got a part in a short play (she was the car driver! and the youngest by about 7 years!).

Then on Sunday it was our friends' son Andrew's first communion. Luckily the weather brightened up and we all got to sit outside in the sunshine with some Rosé!

This was the card I made - the stamp is (I think) by Penny Black. The letter stickers were in my pile of alpha stickers so no idea who they are by and the sentiment was printed out on the computer.

I coloured the image in using SU markers and the background papers are the from the gorgeous SU Wintergreen pack (now retired - grab them quick if you want some before they go out of stock - especially with the buy 3 get a 4th pack free offer that is on throughout May).

And last but not least this is the card I made for my friend's daughter who was also making her first communion on Sunday. I adore these Miss Anya stamps from the greeting farm. Coloured in using SU markers and the paper is from the tea Party designer series paper pack.
