Shopping

Had a fabby day Sunday, visited our friends Jamie, Claire and Toby and managed to sneak off to the NEC for the Hobbycrafts show :) I have to say that it actually took longer to get to the show from the car park than from J,C & T's house....I did however have a free ticketeroonie from the lovely people at Crafts Beautiful - don't remember entering the comp to win one but hey, anything free is good, right? :)

So.... What did I buy? .... Not that much actually, was a leetle bit shocked though as one of the first stands that I came to was the Simply Cards and Papercraft one and they had some of my cards - on display and everything!! They were the ones that I entered into the Card maker of the Year comp and I am very reliably informed that they will be featured in the next issue ... 'tis very exciting :)

Managed to leave the camera at J C and T's so no photos but here's what I bought...

7 pieces of crate paper
1 6 by 6 blonde moments festive feasts pad of paper
1 pack of queen and co lickle sprinkles
16 buttons
2 Danish pastries that as Josh informed me were as big as his head (and super yummy!!)
that's it...





.....The other things that I got were free ( maybe not all things free are good!?) and were.... A signed picture of Alan and Barry and a really fab badge also with their picture on it saying 'I love Alan and Barry. (Please note that I did not ask for these, they gave them to me as I was passing their stand....) I just wish that I had the camera so that you could share in the loveliness of the afore mentioned items... They are lush...

Well, it's nice to know you think I'm a reliable source ;-) It does take an aaaage to get to the halls at the NEC, doesn't it? Worth it for a stroke of the Crate though... Now, I wish I'd walked slowly past A&B, instead of breaking into a horrified run!

What a lovely load of goodies Jo - have fun :-)

I bought Papercraft Inspirations at the weekend as I thought that was the mag you were in and I had bought the wrong one!!!

Which edition of Simply Cardmaking and Papercraft are you in - I just have to buy it.

Well done on having your cards on their display - what an achievement :-)
