Shy at first. Like getting and giving hugs, like my own company but like having 1 on 1 time with my friends. Not keen on big changes. Like to know what's happening!

Welcome to my blog and my entry for the Cocktails & Dreams Blog Hop being hosted by Gill McCall (Creations By Gill M)

You should have arrived here from Corrine's Blog .  If not, hop along to Gill's Blog and you can start hopping along from there.

Gill is a big dreamer and loves imagining what could be!  She also loves pina coladas (or any other coconut based alcoholic drink!!)  So the theme of this blog hop is cocktails and dreams!

My dream holiday is to go to New York.  I've always loved New York, and with the popular TV show "Sex And The City" and films such as "Confessions Of A Shopaholic", I want to go even more!  Obviously when you go to New York, you must have a cocktail!  So in the true style of the Sex And The City girls, my dream holiday would include enjoying cosmopolitan cocktails in the heart of New York!  I hope you like what I've made for this hop.

So what do you think?  I'd love to see your comments, so please feel free to leave some feedback below.

To make my scrapbook page, I used a 12x12 piece of grey card stock as the base layer.  I printed some photos of New York from the internet of some of the many things I'd love to see and do when I go to New York, hopefully in 2015, for my 30th birthday!  I matt and layered each of the pictures on black and grey shimmer card, leaving thin borders on each layer.  I used 3d foam to attach The Empire State Building picture and the cosmopolitan cocktail.  I printed the recipe for a cosmopolitan cocktail and matt and layered this on more black and grey card.  I also did this with my wee blurb.  I used a quickie glue pen and some shimmer glitter on the lime wedge on the cocktail to make is sparkle!  To complete the page, I used some clear adhesive gems and silver peel off letters to spell out "New York"!
It's now time to hop on over to Jessica's Blog.  She's made an amazing project, so hop on over and see what you think.  You can also hop onto the other participant's blogs.

Thanks for hopping by, take care!
