FROM LA LA LAND

Well we arrived in La La Land to some gorgeous weather... Sorry to mention that !!!
So took the advantage and nipped off down to San Diego, although we only got as far as La Jolla (if anyone saw Housewives of Orange County, you'll know it), we shopped, we ate, we strolled on the beach..... Ahhhh this is the life !!!
But we didn't come here for that....CHA is what we're here for.....and the buying has begun..... Here's a few sneaks of what's on it's way










There's some great themed papers this year, and interestingly SO MANY rubber stamps compared to clear stamps.
I know the girls are going to moan at this.....only because they're going to say "where we going to put them" !!! But I've found a new ribbon company....and oh my the sheers are amazing...I'm seeing so many handmade flowers...move over Prima !!! Don't worry I'll do a tutorial on them.
So far I've seen some nice itty bitty products but nothing to make you go BOOM!!!
We have another 8 hour walking marathon today, I must stop talking though, the trouble is we keep bumping into so many peeps we know, Dyan Reavley's here doing her magic at ranger and super duper Kirsty Wiseman's rocking it at Letraset, Sue & Richard from Craftwork Cards are there with The lovely Julie Hickey...doing it for the UK..we're walking the show wearing their badges with pride. The MLS girls keep popping up everywhere, they're so funny !!!
We were thoroughly spoilt last night when one of our American reps took us out for dinner, nothing was too much trouble....Thank you Monica xxx..... Here's a little Lemon Merengue Pie I just had to have



And very nice it was too....
Well I better stop waffling and get myself ready to start the next day...
Hugs

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
