The day i won an Oscar.

In 2010 I organised a trip to Harrogate GNPE
for the craft group i attend
(Crafty Crafters)
I had decided to enter a card into the best card-maker competition,
When we arrived i put it in the box marked intermediate, some of my friends encouraged me to put it in the box marked advanced,
I'm so glad i did, i was thrilled to bits when they announced i had won.
I didn't think i had much chance.
The moral of this story is, never underestimate yourself, You could get a pleasant suprise.
