We decided to find a less busy vantage point and chose the mini roundabout which is just up past the Greyhound pub you can see on the left of this photo.
This was our viewing point at 12.45
and at 2pm when the flame arrived this was the view........
Just a bit busier isn't it. Once the police outriders moved on we had a perfect view back down towards the High Street and ponds.
First the sponsors drove through.
and finally the bus in front of the torch runner appeared.
Everyone was clapping, cheering and flag waving and I really felt quite choked. There was a feeling of total joy and community spirit!
It was funny being able to walk down the middle of the road. Everyone was in such a great mood and yes the weather really did help ;0)
I have had coloured her with my Promarker Pens and highlighted with my Prismacolor pencils. I have used papers from my stash and the cute Lili of the Valley tag stamps. I finished off with a gorgeous green shimmery organza ribbon and some pearls.
I would like to enter my card into the the following challenges;
Dream Valley #37 Summer
Joanna Sheen Animal antics
MIM linky party #99
Brenda from Floral Inspirations Photo Inspiration- I have used the colours from her photo as inspiration, greens and red Poppy photo inspiration
Now as I say I hope my card shows me how I am trying to behave in this run up to my darling Daughter's wedding this Saturday. Cool, calm and collected ;0) Everything is ready and I am off on Friday to spend the day with her, her last day as a single woman. The Wedding is at 3pm on Saturday and if blogger scheduling behaves I have a little surprise post planned so do tune in then for some very special sneek peeps. This is my last post before this most momentous day. I would like to thank you all for your wonderful kind messages. I am going to inhale and treasure every single moment of my day as The Mother of The Bride.
Bye for now,
