oooo hang on need to yawn............. What a fantastic day i had yesterday!!! I absolutly loved the NEC! Had a brilliant day with my friend Emma and hubby took us! I finally got to meet Shannon !!! only been talking online for 4+ years!! haha!! :-) was absolutly lovely to meet you and hang out for the day!! :-)

I also bumped into the lovely Clare Curd from docrafts and had a lovely natter with her too, she's so sweet and i'm so glad your ok from your car accident earlier in the year!! I finally got to meet the lovely Jacqui too she's lovely!! :-) and I saw Bev at the lili of the valley stand too but she was quite busy! Was lovely to put names to faces!

Of course i was like a kid in a sweet shop i had noooo idea what i really wanted to buy the lovely guy at the lili of the valley kept laughing at me because i went back not once but 3 times!! haha!! I really enjoyed it, tho i was a little disapointed some of the stands weren't there like craftwork cards but i managed to pick some of there things up elsewhere! I thought the show was great! Grabbed myself a few bargains too, the last day is totally worth going! I even got some freebies!!! :-) and alot of things were marked half price in the afternoon!!!

Here's some of my goodies!!! of course i took pictures! I have to wait till craftsuprint upload the others as we all met craftybob too!! haha

Two mags were freebies!!. 6x6 up up and away pad! My minds eye stack, BG pad was half price £3.49!
Nesties, i searched high and low for labels 10!!! they must be very popular sooo glad i found them! 2 for £30 and big book rings for my chipboard albums

Pepper and friends stamps were all £1! i adore this doggie!!, piece of cake pennyblack stamp set (i only wanted it for the mouse in the cakes haha!, brads all £1! ribbon for my pirate Tildas!!, housemouse cuties! Neenah card!, glue!

6X6 Blanks, distress inks and glimmer mists were 4 for £12! stickles 3 for £5, gems £1 a pack!, stencils and bits on the left were all in a £3 goody bag

Pearls £1!!! clock face and hands been looking for these everywhere!!! and those cute lasercut wood buttons are adorable!!

My craftwork cards goody bag £10!!! and of course it had to be pink!!!

Oooo i was very suprised to find these they were reduced and i even got them cheaper at the till 3 for £15!

First trip to the stall i adore these stamps soooo sweet! 4 for £15 so saved a pound but every little helps!
