Still Here!

I'm still here.....just about.....went to the Stamp and Scrapbook Show at Alexandra Palace on Saturday.......not the most sensible thing to do when unwell........but I couldn't bear to miss it........and it has taken me 2 days to recover!!
But......I had a great time.......despite the massive crowds........though impossible to take photos.......I got loads of inspiration......a few bits of new stash......and had a lovely lunchtime meeting with my brother and his family........they are lucky enough to live in a flat that backs onto the Palace grounds.
What did I buy????
 a couple of Cosmo Cricket paper pads

some frames and items for altering-the 'to be altered' money box for little A
some chipboard-the torsos will go perfectly with the Cosmo Cricket 'Material Girl' papers
Lord Tim's stuff was everywhere-maybe I'll manage the 12 tags of xmas this year
 finally-a couple of chipboard covers-to form the basis of my small JYC album this year!
And I'll leave you with this slightly tongue-in-cheek card!!!!

Hope you will soon be restored to health.

I'm deeply jealous of your trip to Ally Pally and your FAB stash and can't wait to see what you do with it all . . . where to start!

HAVE FUN

Love the card Jacky! So cute! Seems you and i are in the same boat, both paddling backwards. I went to a crop on Saturday... had a good time catching up with a friend ... but still feel like crap!
