.....Till we have to return home.....BUT we will come back with so many great memories, we've had such a brilliant time and whilst I have missed all of you, I haven't missed the stress of work, this has been a complete chill out!!! THANK YOU to all you girls holding the shop together and doing such a great job and SPECIAL THANKS to my MUM, she's a real star!!!!!
Ricky celebrated his 44th birthday out here so we went to the CHEESECAKE FACTORY (god we love that place)!!! and they all sang happy birthday to him
What is it with 18 year old boys that they have to pull a funny face!!!

All the boys went SHOOTING the other day, I've already done that in Las Vegas, I'm quite a dab hand with an OUZI !!! they all decided to fire revolvers and were pretty damn good, Luke rather liked the look of the MAGNUM although I don't think Nicky was too impressed.
We're off to relax at Aquatica today, sorry not meaning to rub it in but it is lovely out here and we may as well make the most of it.
If anyone is coming out soon the bad news is the dollar/pound isn't so great and therefore things don't seem that cheap, although I think we got spoiled in Chicago in July at 2 to the Pound, but the good news is that petrol (gas) has gone down by 30 cents in the two weeks we've been here, so obviously we can only assume it's gone down back home as well LOL!!!
Met the owner of PIKTALES the other day (sorry I've forgotten your name already) bloody dementia!!!! anyway she's LOVELY so if you're coming out pay her a visit, very easy to find, she's in Hunters Creek. She's got some really nice bits in there.

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
