My Perfect Present Layout

Today I did some crafting yipppppeeeeeeeeeee - well I say today it was during the wee small hours after waking up in lots of pain and feeling really sick and dizzy.
I took my painkillers, curled up on the sofa and watched some drivel at around 2:00am. Then I had the urge to do some crafting so I grabbed it with both hands and almost 'ran' to my desk to start.
I cut the navy and red card to make my version of the French flag and then decorated it with my tickets and other pictures, some I took on the night and some scanned from my Programme.
Last October my lovely family bought me tickets to go and see the 25th anniversary concert of Les Miserables - one of my favourite things to listen/sing along to.
The photographs show the backdrop and the audience, or lack of it, 5 minutes before it started.Within seconds of taking the picture the arena was full to bursting point.
The writing on the back was a description of my weekend away and how I felt before, during and after the show. It goes onto 2 pages but the second page is more personal so I have kept that hidden.

When I came downstairs this morning I still liked the layout and found that it didn't look too crooked, I was shocked by the price of the tickets, and, although I have had them stashed away in a drawer, last night was the first time I had actually looked at them. When I saw the price I wanted to yell at them for spending that much money, but I had such a lovely time that I'm so glad they did.
