I love layers.....

Today's card was inspired by this lovely picture at




lots of layers....


that's so me...... LOL


pretty white laser cut frame, gift from Ros



 I am pretty happy with this one : )


..............

Last weekend, we went to Tony Orlando's concert


Anyone know what is his most popular song?
Ummm... maybe you are all too young to know, LOL!

He is by far the most sincere singer I've ever seen, still have his great voice, very humble.... the best part is, everyone in his band can SING, really really SING .... and he generously gave them the stage. At the end of his concert, he introduced the stage manager, and this simple, ordinary looking guy in his work crew uniform, knocked everyone down with this great big voice, we thought that it was just a gig, but we stayed on after the concert, oh yes, he was really the stage manager, we saw him tearing down the equipment, carried them one at the time onto the cart, rolled up all the wires on stage.... that was his real job! What a night!

I love Tony Orlando. My mom and sisters used to always dance to his records. Yes it was that long ago that we still used records back then. Good memories...
