Morning all!

Sorry for the massive loooong post! I had a fantastic day at the NEC yesterday!!!
Finally got to meet my friend Debs at Debbee's CD's (the one who im creativing for!!) her outfit was absolutly fantastic! dressed as a bumble bee, if you went you wouldn't of missed her lol!!

I also bumped into my friend Sheryl & her friend (who's name i should know but escapes my air head this morning i had no idea they were going!! was lovely to see you both!! I popped to see Jacqui at LOTV, she was mega busy demo'ing with the huggest bag of copics ive ever seen in my life lol!! I also met up with my DT co-owner & buddy Gemma!! (who i totally feel for her poor feet) she's been mega busy on the samual talyors stand!!!

so what did i buy......

The whole lot of Smash books! (inc the orange book that i left at the bloomin stand by accident but Gemma picked it up for me! (shes a diamond) i was in a right panic when i got home!! lol


Bargain sets of dies £1, £2 from crafts u love, ideal for my smashing!


More smash products! (addicted can you tell??)

And more!!! i acidently brought two of the pockets thinking i hadn't brought them already (crafts u love were 50p dearer... teaches me!! need to shop around at these places!!

Apologies for the upside downess silly phone camera i was exicted!! but i got some nitwit die cuts for £1! some 7 gypsies stickers for my books! smash tape ooo i love this stuff!!! and bo bunny tags and journal spots


ribbbbbbbbbbbon!!! minnie mouse of course! I even met the lovely Ali, who sponsors my Charisma Challenges from crafty ribbons! was lovely to put a face and meet her!


More ribbons lol!!!


Some journal tags from ali craft £1.50!! and brads all £1 a pack!


Now then i went with the thought of not buying ANY lotv stamps as i've got tons and some not even inked! but i couldn't resist the sweet kitty cats they've got!!! so had to have 5! of course being 5 for £20!


Basic grey buttons £1! and a very sweet cat die £1.50! and look at that stamp i found whilst rooting! he's adorable never seen it before so had to have!


I adore these wooden buttons, i actually didn't think the stall was there till i spied it on the way out! 3 for £1! wish i'd brought more now! but i even brought robbie one see the ferrari!!! hehe and some more stickles of course!!!


Gems all £1 a pack or 6x £5!

Pearls same price but had to stock up!!!


Oh yeah more paper! not that i need any! but the mme kite was on my list! papermania mistletoe was only a £1 so how could i not!!!


I found a lovely christmas 8x8 pad for £2.50! and the other two were £1 each so had to have! lol as you do!

I was really disapointed back in march the Craftwork cards stand wasn't there.. and i was excited they'd be here this nov, BUT the stall was tiny and had hardly anything sooo disapointed in them!!! boo as i love therre stuff i would of brought more... but i got a goodybag for £10!


Ok! so i've wanted the new flex markers for a while and the cheapest i found them was... 4 sets for £39! hehe


6x6 cards!! and magnolia ink!!! yay!!!


Bargain of the day... Martha stewart punch £3.50! with 3 sweet butterfly stamps that go inside! there were others which i wish i'd got now but im pleased i got this one!!


last but not least i picked this set up for £1!! bargain! i love smirk lol!

I spent well over my budget as normal lol and i brought some other non crafty but christmas pressies in the crafts for christmas section of the show that i can't share for obvious reasons they're pressies lol!
Had a fantastic day!!! can't now wait for March's show!

I've now got to go find all new homes for my stash in my craftroom that's been hit by a bomb lol!
ooo and special thanks to my HUBBY ROBBIE who erm did 4 back to the car trips and took me! MWAH MWAH MWAH LUFF U LOTS!!!

Enjoy your goodies!

I can feel your crafty excitement!! Wish I had been at this show too. Can you tell me what SMASH books are? I have heard the name but don't know what they are or contain. barbara

Oh what fun!!! I'm going to my first scrapbook expo on Friday and I can't wait!! Maybe I should take hubby with me so he can make trips to the car too!! Congrats on getting the Smash books and goodies you've wanted for so long. I just received my order for three of them and a lot of the same Smash goodies you got! I'm going to say it's all your fault that I got them, since you made "Smashing" look like so much for on your blog!!!

I'm glad you had so much fun!
