Stamperama stamp show - today!

This has long been one of my favourite shows, small, but perfectly formed... Today, it was made more special by Sam and Emma making a long journey "down south" to attend.. hope they thought it was worth it.
We all spent a lot of time at the Paperartsy stand, as's the story of the day (oh, and some shopping!)
 someof Lin's gorgeous samples!
 Leandra in full flow - she did stop talking long enough to produce some gorgeous samples too!

Leandra's workstation, her fab journal that she's featured on her blog and in videos, at the front.

 some more of Lin's samples
 Lin, Emma, Sam (and Alison, bottom right with her back to me)
 one of Leandra's tags
 and the start of another... love all this purple, Leandra!!

 I challenged Leandra to use the JoFY set (at front, with the caterpillar) as I'd just bought it, and wanted some ideas...

some (long) time later, this was the gorgeous result, which I was able to bring home with me!
 time for tea and cake,. I seem to have only got half of Sam, oops!  Jo, and Alison.
at, this one's better! left side, Sam, Jo,Alison,  right side, Debs,Emma,Lin.
and my goodies... nearly all from Paperartsy, just one stencil elsewhere... there wasn't a lot else I wanted apart from what Leandra and Mark had; lol!
this pic was a bit rushed, as I'm tired now, hope you can make out enough of what I got!
