From Alexandra Palace.....to Just Magnolia

Spent a great weekend in London.........went with friends to Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at Ally Pally.......mega crowded,but so much wonderful stash to see [and buy!!]........my friends went home,but I stayed overnight with my brother who's recently moved into a flat backing on to Ally Pally.......what a location.........back to the show in the morning.......some more browsing........and a bit more buying!!!......then joined by OH and we all went for a yummy Sunday lunch at local pub.........finally home Sunday evening well and truly exhausted.
Here's most of the stash I couldn't resist!!!! So.....having bought all that crafty stuff......thought I'd better get cracking with some crafting.....Just Magnolia want pink,grey and optional black this week......not your typical xmas colours.....but go perfectly with my DCWV xmas pad.......and Sweet Magnolia has a gorgeous sketch this month.
Tilda has been watercoloured and stickled..............DCWV card from their xmas stack + some grey from stash..............the white card was embossed with my new Ally Pally Sizzix xmas texturz plates........papers all DCWV Rose Tinted xmas........snowflakes are Sizzix die cut with funky foam and stickled......sentiment Stampasaurus........ribbon from stash......lots of mounting on foam pads.
Now need to have a sort out of my stash....and get all my new stuff put away.......before starting on the next project!!

What a very thoughtful brother! Can we all come and crash next time? I last went a few years ago and it was exhausting...but you do get some good stuff at the shows and some special offers.
The xmas card is great and the colours work well! I didn't think of a christmas card..Duh!!

Lovely stuff Jacky, and how cool is it that your brother lives there!!! Love your card, have these two challenges ear marked too. I know what you mean about the popcorn stamps, I stamped that one 3 times and still had to fill bits with my fineliner!
