A DAY FOR SIGHTSEEING

It started off really sunny and then just as we were about to go out the door it became overcast, made our way to downtown Chicago and went to NAVY PIER.
We were recommended to take the architectual tour or as I would call it the boredom tour, basically it's a boat ride that takes you through a part of the city looking at the buildings, ZZzzzz, ZZzzzz oops sorry I must having dropped off again, BUT it was a good excuse to sit and close my eyes and have a breeze blow on me, By the way by this time the sun has come out in FULL. Check out this piccy, you can even tell the necklace I was wearing, needless to say I'll be putting sun lotion on today.

We then went on to see Soldier Field the home of the CHICAGO BEARS (very impressive) and then to Wrigley Field the home of the CHICAGO CUBS (in case there's any men reading this)

Back homewards bounds (hotel) and to do a bit more shopping, Jane if you're reading this, I think I got you mag today. then obviously we needed some food, I should have bought eleasticated trousers with me. we went to the CHEESECAKE FACTORY and I had the best pizza EVER, Chicken with Pine Nuts, it was amazing, ricky had a lovely pasta dish followed by STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE for ricky and RASPBERRY & LEMON CHEESECAKE for me.

THANKS MUM, this one was on you. xxxxx

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
