Ally Pally Weekend

So I just had a fab fun weekend spent at the big stamp and scrapbooking show.
My darling Mummy made this weekend possible and I thank her muchly as I love meeting up with friends old and new xo I just wish everyone didn't live so far apart.. But anywhoooooo.
The first thing was to get this shot

Then the hordes arrived and took over the PA stand..

Leandra and Lin were straight into demoing the fab new paint colours and new stampage..

And Gillian was showing off her samples getting Lin to shop shop shop lol

Helen and Lin B on their phones while Lin and Anna just mill about.
Then I headed over to annoy Sam Poole and the MDF man.

I only managed 1 shot of the #PAtwit meet up we had after the show on Saturday, Not as many as in april but it was still nice to rest the feet and have a little natter with everyone before heading home.

On sunday I managed to snap Don and Val of Snazzy's before things got going

Here is Gilly and Leandra ready for their day of demo's

The calm didn't last long as soon it was busy busy 

The crowds gather

To the point I couldn't get near.. Gilly was in her element!

Me and my pint size pal Alison... {she's on her tiptoes you know lol}

Then I found Lucy and Lin mooching at the PA stand once it had quietened down.

And that was all the pics I got.. I was too busy nattering and watching demos oh and a smidge of shopping
The pics came out a bit fuzzy but i'll share um anyway.. I also got a tray, set of draws and lots of hardware from the MDF man but forgot to take a pic.

So that was my weekend.. How was yours?

Hurray I can blog again!

Thank you powers that be for finally sorting the bug that was pestering my blogger!
Not been able to log in for days!
So this is a little late but my latest offering is over on the Sam Poole DT blog
But that's the only real crafting i've done since returning from the Ania class as mr mojo is still on strike, which is shocking considering how fab the classes were but that's what you get when you have depression I guess.. I'll bounce back soon i'm sure, I always do!
Thanks to all of you who understand and still visit xo

Finn Workshop: BEST WEEKEND EVER {Pic Heavy}

So as you may already know a whole bunch of us were lucky enough to get places on the
UK Debut class of
It was Ania's very 1st time teaching here in the UK but i'm sure it won't be the last.
And it was A-MAZ-ING, The most intensive 2 days crafting of my life but the most enjoyable too.
Day 1 was broken into 2 classes,
I got stuck sitting next to some right dodgy people
 my bezzy Gillian
mischief maker Alison, with Emma hiding in the background.
And deep in the process Sam
We did a layout in the morning.. This is mine
I had to make mine with no photo {I added it when I got home coz I totally forgot to print any}
Then in the afternoon we made a canvas
Finn was on top form
Here is my canvas..
Ania was kind enough to give some of us without pics a photo of her to use.. 
{I had brought an SD card but the printer was dead}
Group shoot...Everyone say cheese.
Day 2 was Getting Inky with Prima
We started in the morning by decorating a prima journal cover
front and back 
Then in the afternoon we did a couple of pages
The printer was working again so I managed to get a couple of pics. {thanks Don}
 This was a great learning curve, especially as it involves all those left over scraps.
I didn't get a proper chance to finish page 2 but it still looks ok and I now know what i'm doing thanks to the wonderful teachings of Ania. Seriously this lady is Uber talented and Uber sweet too.
After class a few of us kidnapped Ania for a meal
{OK i'm kidding, she came willingly although i'm not sure she knew what she was letting herself in for! lol
 I finally got to meet several online friends in person which was a real pleasure.
Along with many other friends old and new.
I'd like to thank everyone for making it an awesome weekend to remember.
I was very sad to say goodbye to everyone.
Roll on Ally Pally :)
