Stamperama, Stevenage - report

Well I see from my twitter feed you all very impatient to see what went on - as you know I don't have a smart phone so can't tweet while I'm out!!

Got there just as the doors opened for advance ticket holders (my train to Victoria was late, so I missed the connection I planned at Kings Cross)

the show was in a different hall (bigger) to usual which made for more space but I didn't know where Lin and Leandra were.... but I found them and more or less, there I stood all day....

Here they are, hard at work!

 Leandra was painting on greyboard and it looks amazing....
safe to say, the stand was mobbed early on!
 Leandra hard at work with paint and Jo's stamps

Coke spillage!!
 Leandra's fab work!
 Lin's stamps - this tag was gorgeous - painting on the tag, on black card - look how the images POP! can't wait to try this!!
more of Lin's work
and more! the lace stuck in between individual petals - fab!!
another of Leandra's
 the artwork on the stand

and my stash! i did also get one of Sara's journalling sets, but it hadn't been fully trimmed (Leandra says that was down to Mark... so I have left it with her to trim and send on to me)

Now, is that quick enough a report - I have been in 20 minutes.... can I drink my tea now?!!

That is a quick report! Seems like a great day at the stand. Great stash too. Love the new JOFY stamps too. Glad you had a good day and I hope you have a good tea.

Oh go on then, have your tea..... :)
GREAT post, thank you for all the photos. Leandra & Lyn's samples look gorgeous, not surprised there were so many people crowding around them.
Have a lovely time playing with your new stash, can't wait to see what you create.

Looks like a great day all round. Put me right in the mood for the SECC event 7-10 March. Can't wait now.

Wow looks like you've had a brilliant day (already seen what you've created and its brilliant).
Whenever I see Leandra or Lin I'm always entranced with that they do - stunning work.

So sad to miss you... although if you really were at PA most of the time, we probably coincided - but I was nursing my sister-in-law through all the possibilities! It'll have to be next time!
