Ally Pally - day two... you know I said I wasn't spending????

Best laid plans of mice and men... it had to be done! "found" a few extra goodies I needed today, on day 2 of Ally Pally...

 the lovely Lin Brown was there today demo'ing with Leandra as Mark was at the trade show and JoFY has gone to the Handmade Fair at Hampton Court (may give that a go next year!)
Here are some of Lin's gorgeous backgrounds
 just scrummy aren't they?
 Cazz was there too today, lovely to see you again.

 we had the obligatory #patwit group shot, although Cazz had disappeared!  Millie, Leandra's daughter was there again today, manning the tills with Karen this time
L-R, Millie, Leandra, Lucy, Lin and Lin, with Julie Ann and Alison in front.
I also met Cindy, a fellow WOYWWer who was there today, and seemed to be having fun every time I bumped into her.
 more of Lin's masterwork
and - erm... a "little" pile of new goodies...some of them were bargains, honestly!!

Well you certainly redeemed yourself today, another great haul and great to see close ups of Lins backgrounds. Fab #PAtwits photo too xxx

I hadn't realised you posted yesterday too! I resisted several items I see in your haul, namely Artistic Outpost& TH stamps, jute rolls, the 4 stencils at special price and even some PA stamps!!!I'm going to regret this...

Blimey, another huge pile of fab new goodies! Glad you had fun. Great photos too, Lin's work is gorgeous.

Wow, those backgrounds are yummy. But I know you'll make something equally lovely as those, too.
Saw roses, stamps (winter even), mini bottles, and great stencils among others. Lucky, lucky you.

I guess it's a smaller pile, and hey, it contains needs as well as wants...isn't that a glue pen right there!! I particularly like the twine..and the tin buckets...

Helen I'm always amazed you manage to find new goodies to play with, do you ever accidently buy duplicates?

So jealous - another visit - more demos, meeting up with friends…..and another haul of fab stash! Save some pennies for PS! Sadly I will never be a PAtwit, no matter how much I love Paper Artsy - wouldn't have clue where to start!!! Hugs, Chrisx
