Yesterday, saw my twice-annual trip to Alexandra Palace and the BSSBS - Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show - I LOVE this show, (my credit card gets lots of exercise too...as you will see later)
The day dawned early - I like to be near the front of the queue, lol!! This time, I was meeting the oh-so-lovely Julie Ann at Victoria station in London for only her second trip to Ally Pally. From there we headed to the venue to meet Lin It was nice to have someone to travel the rest of the way with and chat in the queue - although to be fair, most times you just chat to the person next to you anyhow.
At 10 when the doors opened we headed - dashed! - straight to Paperartsy (of course) for the new stash we'd missed out on in Paris (bottle caps, Emma!) The lovely Lin Brown and Leandra were already hard at work demoing (early entry for disabled visitors to allow them some space at the stands) so we did a bit of a sweep of the racks!
Jo Myhill/Leandra collaboration - so much so that when Leandra had a break, Jo stepped in to demo -
Gabrielle, it's the first time for ages since her awful accident last year, but you looked great Gab, and so did Freya-brayer (in joke) and her cousin Rebecca, seen here with the lovely Karen who was sadly there working!
Mark and Leandra's gorgeous daughter Millie
now, where can I put it all....? I could be gone some time!
Thanks to everyone for a great day yesterday - and if you're going today, have as much fun as we did!
