MAKING THE MOST OF IT....

There's no denying it, my life is mega busy at the mo, I only get one day off a week...c'mon let's hear it...arhhhhhh :) :) 

Since getting this one day off, I've been spending it catching up with friends and just, well, enjoying myself :) :) 
This Monday was no exception, to celebrate the lovely Suzanne's birthday we took a trip to London, had a bit of pampering and shopping in the wonderful Jo Malone's
I thoroughly recommend it !!! 

We had a lovely lunch at the Royal Exchange and then walked, yes walked, we really needed to burn lunch off, to the Tower of London.........and WOW what a sight.
The Sea of Poppies (don't know if that's it's correct title, but that what I've called it) was a STUNNING sight to see..
Not the best pic here, but if you look closely you can see it coming out of the wall above !!
Here they meander around the Tower
And this is the other side and they've mapped out further round ready for more !!!

I've been up to London a few times in the last month or so and it makes me ask the question....why don't I go there more often, it's such a beautiful city and so close....so until my next adventure !!!
I've been busy designing classes...more Project Life, perfect for beginners and advanced alike, along with good old 12" x 12" scrapbooking, you can check out the offerings HERE, I'm also adding a couple of fabulous classes that Nina's doing today to the list, we even have a brand new style class on a Sunday where you make a page in the morning then you have an option to stay the rest of the day and crop (posh word for play) LOL !!
Just to remind you all, we will be closed this Bank Holiday Monday
So we hope you have a fun filled day with your family and loved ones :) :) normal business will resume on Tuesday :) :) 

Have you seen all our new yummies recently arrived ? No !!! Then what are you waiting for, pop on in

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
