All this month Nina's been doing her book of the month class on a bucket list.... and it got me thinking :) :)
I've never been to Harrods... so after my show on Tuesday I got whisked off by the lovely Kirsty Wiseman and Rubina Latif to Knightsbridge and we decended on Harrods, first off we went in the Laduree's entrance....OMG... what an amazing place, they sell the most expensive macaroons, but it was worth it (thanks Kirsty) just to take in the decor. WOW !!! It was requested that no photos were to be taken, obviously I respected that, but we did get a couple of snapshots outside...

The inside of Harrods was rather lush... I had to go in the Christmas Shop... well it's a must isn't it !!!! and it was there that I bought my lovely mum a pressie (she loves crimbo) !!!

And so do these girls.... While I was there I met a guy (shhhh ... don't tell Rick)
He was a bit stiff though !!!
Then we came back down to the ground floor and found LOLA'S CUPCAKES ....
They did allow us to take picci's.... Therefore we felt completely obliged to buy some and oh boy they were YUMMY... expensive but YUMMY !! GO LOLA !!!!!
On the way back to the car, I fell in love with the houses... just look at all these trees... so neat.
One of the houses was being refurbed, so we asked the builders if we could have a look (well if you don't ask you don't get) as I poked my head in I mentioned that I thought the lounge was a bit on the small side, for a house that big, it was only about 22 x 11, then they pointed out that it was actually the entrance hall LOL !!!
On that note we got back in the car and went back to Q Towers where I shot a video showing you how to make a really quick simple layout, all in the run up to the BRAND NEW CREATIVE KEEPSAKES
show on Tuesday 25th October at 2pm.... I can't wait, I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. Hope you can join me. Keep checking out the QVC blog to see when it's been uploaded.
Anyhoo's must get on with some work, enjoy your week

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
