UKS Weekly challenge

My friend and teamie on UKS is setting a solo weekly challenge for the coming week.

She is challenging us to do a layout using a Shakespeare quote, something green and more than 2 pearls!!

Here is my effort

The Shakespeare quote I chose is from Hamlet Act 1 Scene 2  ~

Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love

For the 'green' part I used green spray mist, green hearts, one of the banner strips is Basic Grey Boxer green patterned paper and there is also some green stamping on the tag (bottom centre).

Finally I have added some pearls dotted around amongst the misting.

The photo is of me and the 3 boys just after our last meal together for the Thanksgiving celebrations in November 2012. We ate at the Oread Hotel, where James works. It was a lovely meal and nice to be together. Usually we went into Kansas City to The Cheesecake Factory but this year we decided to try somewhere different and closer to home :)

Dinner at The American Restaurant

Wow was I lucky girl! On 21 November Will and Taryn treated me to dinner at the American Restaurant in Kansas City.

James and Nick came too. James and Will modelled their new shirts from Turkey!!

The menu had my name at the top!

and the wine list was on an iPad left on the table -
so cool!

The food was 'out of this world!'

 The presentation was stunning ~ as was the service ! All the food was brought out by a team of waiters and waitresses so everyone got their food at exactly the same time!
My snickerdoodle dessert complete with foam !

 At 8pm (I think) they tested the city Christmas lights in the plaza below the restaurant in preparation for the official 'switch on' by the mayor of Kansas City on Friday.

Even after the Christmas lights went off it still looked pretty outside.
Stunning floral display at the entrance.

And .....

James had left his lights on...

Luckily Taryn had met us there so we had two cars and James had the jump leads in the boot ~ problem solved ~ phew!!
