The Best'est Weekend EVER! Part #1

So as many of you know this past weekend was Ally Pally's Big Stamp & Scrapbooking craft show.
It's been a year since i've been able to attend so was a tad excited.
On Friday afternoon I met up with one of my best'ies Gillian
Then Saturday morning, this was the calm b4 the storm!
That didn't last long as trouble turned up in the form of my other best'ie Lily
and she started shopping straight away lol
B4 I knew it the place was teeming with PATWITS {paper artsy twitter peeps}
This is lovely Gabrielle
 Sam{21Ski} This was the 1st time we've met in person after knowing each other online for about 5 years.
Another first in person meeting with the oh so talented Carol Q
Then I got some hugs from a familiar face both online and in person, The slightly crazy Alison
Leandra was in full demo mode on the PA stand.
As was Lin, showing us all how it's done.
Then it was all hands on deck
From left to right Michelle, Leandra, Darcy & Lin
 Michelle and Darcy took over for a bit
Then it was time for more hugs
and stuffing of faces with some scrummy cupcakes Darcy handmade.
OH MY GOD melt in the mouth lemon yumminess I tell ya
{Lily, Me and Helen with an extra arm..which was Gillian's}
Emma was being all shy hiding behind her camera, Then I found her and Sam in the massive queue on the PA stand where poor Mark was working his little behind off!

Right I think that's enough pics for today.. I leave you wanting a bit more.. and I'll be back tomorrow with more pics from Sunday.
Stay Inky
