A bit of craft shopping

G and I had a great day at Ally Pally yesterday.......despite the fact we spent longer traveling than at the show!!!!! We did manage 4 hours being inspired by everything.....not to mention spending some pennies.
I had gone with the aim of getting some scrapbook papers.......and I certainly managed that
 the colours in this photo aren't perfect.....but a it is a selection of some of my favourite colours
MME are among my favourite papers.....and my best bargains of the day were 3 packs of 'Lost and Found' papers.........15 double sided papers in a pack........£2.99 a pack!!!!!
and I couldn't resist these papers.....they will be perfect for scrapping our Jubilee Street Party later this year.
Did I need any new stamps........definately not.........but just a very few crept into my bag.....at £2.99 each I couldn't leave them behind.
along with a £1 chipboard mini album
All day I was very careful not to look at any paper pads......so how this Graphic 45 one managed to come home with me I just don't know!!!!!!!
Hope your weekend was as much fun.

Looks like you had a fab time Jacky and such brilliant finds. You are going to be a very busy lady now playing with all these wonderful things. Love the stamps especially the one with the ladies

Money well spent! Those MME packs are an amazing bargain. Bet you can hardly wait to open it all up and start using it.

I do so admire that you didn't buy much! LOVING what you did buy especially the Kaisercraft and Technique Tuesday images - look forward to seeing those in action on your April Scrap Addicts challenge perhaps?

Great finds! I think with your little one you NEED the graphic 45. And I love that clock stamp. Chipboard albums . . . love 'em!

Isn't it funny how those stamps just hop in our bags? Looks like you found some lovely papers.
