Hi all
Well we made it, after a rather noisy (screaming kids) and smelly (pooey kids) flight we got here and WOW how lovely is this house

We've stayed in a few houses in Florida and this is by far the best, it's absolutely amazing and soooo large I WANT ONE !!!!! We got a tip off by Amanda (the lucky girl who's mum and dad own this) to grab the downstairs bedroom, there's 5 in total, and well, the bed is soooooo big I haven't seen Ricky at night for three nights now!!! The whole place is stunningly furnished the kitchen is ginormous and there's absolutely everything that you could need. I also want a top loader washing machine and a much bigger kitchen with central island, that's not tooooo much to ask, is it? I would certainly recommend this house, it's also really conveniently located for all the attractions just contact amanda on and treat yourself.
We went to Universal Islands of Adventure on Friday and I got coerced into going on the Incredible Hulk ride. Now I should have remembered what it was like last time, and it hasn't changed, it's still blimming SCARY!!!!, I must have been a lemming in a past life!
The sun was glorious the temp was 84 degrees so we went on the water rides and there are warnings that you'll get wet and we were like yay that don't matter it'll probably just be a little bit, well after the first ride "Dudley Doo-Right's RipSaw Falls" WE WERE SOAKED!!! completely, drowned rats probably looked better than us as they don't wear mascara!!! So then we went on the Popeye one (can't remember the name) and this completely removed any traces that were left of our mascara, I must stress the boys were not wearing any!! So off we get soaked to the skin (by the way I won the Miss Wet T Shirt contest!!) and the SUN WENT in, hey ho that's Florida for you. Off shopping today, more adventures in a couple of days.

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
