CELINE DION!!!!!!














SO- last night was the big Celine Dion concert in Tulsa, OK!!!! It was the best concert I have EVER been to- she just puts on amazing show. In have loved her since I was 9 years old when my mom died and I found some of her cassette tapes. Its terribly cliche, but its a small connection I'll always have and last night I SAW her in person. I had resigned myself to the fact that this may never happen as a resident of Tulsa, Oklahoma ;-) The photo above is of the concert stage during My Heart Will Go On- I know its a terrible photo, but camera phones just aren't great. The stage had at least 9 platforms that raised and lowered- there were great light shows and of course, she is just too cool. Plus I think there was a cross-dressed dancer who I was very intrigued by because if it wasn't a man, I'm pretty sure sure she had an adrenal gland problem. She did a great mix of old and new stuff- my friend Lauren's favorite It's All Coming Back to Me Now, Alone, Because You Loved Me... she even did the R. Kelly duet I'm Your Angel- only this time with an cute teddy bear of a guy whom I'd like to believe is very upstanding unlike his predecessor.


OF COURSE, I have to have an inspiration card right? This is my Celine Dion Bella Concert Card! This is how my friends and dressed before we went to dinner at the Polo Grill for a cheese plate and salmon and creme brulee and cheescake. My poor sister was supposed to be my date, but she had the stomach flu and had to stay home, so my new mission is to find another concert- this can't be the end of Celine!


No recipe this week as I used mostly scraps and WishRak pieces. I can say that the image is WinoBella and the dress is eggplant envy covered in Diamond Dust stickles. See you later this week!

How cool...I would have loved to go to her concert when she was here in San Antonio-but it sold out in like 1 hour-one full year before the actual concert!

Alison, first off, I wanted to let you know that My Heart Will Go On has so much meaning to me. Celine was incredible, I'm sure, as she is such a performer with a big voice! I love her, one of the true all time talented greats. MY BF's high school friend danced in her Vegas show - isn't that cool?
Your inspired card is adorable, I love how you and your GFs did it up in style - fun fun fun! And finally, hugs to your sister. Hope she feels better, maybe you can rent a Celine concert on DVD and re-live it with her. :D

Your post made me feel as if I was literally there with you....oh wait, I was. And it....was....AH-mazing.

Wait, It's all coming back to me now....

Just bought the My Love-Essentials Collection. I may have squeezed out a little tear in the car on the way home from Wal-Mart while listening to the great Celine.
