Heaven at Manchester City

First a confession - I admit to going a little nuts on the embellishments with this page.  This is what happens when you don't clear off your scrap desk and there are just tons of things around that attract your eye.  I can now proudly say that I have a lot less chipboard pieces to put away!  Ha Ha!

So the theme for this page was my husband's love (if not obsession) with Manchester City Football Club.  He lives and breathes everything City and I even got him a personalized license plate with "MANCTY" for him (he actually teared up - seriously!).  So when I came across this photo he took last year of Man City's hollowed ground I had to give it a home along with the rest of our treasured memories.  And what better way to start than with another great Pagemaps sketch courtesy of Paper Secrets April 15 challenge?
