Paperartsy at Ally Pally

I was thrilled (and not a little nervous) to be given the chance to take a spot on the Paperartsy demo desk at this month's newly renamed "Crafting at Ally Pally" show in London (formerly The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show). in a couple of weeks time .I've never done anything like this before so be kind to me if you are there!  It's getting close now!

I will be demoing Hot Picks and Darcy's new Christmas stamps (ooh new stamps ?- yes!!)  - here are a few sneaks of what I will be doing/stamps I'll be using..  I'm up at the end of the day from 3.30 till closing time (and hot-footing it to the bar afterwards for what is becoming the regular "after show" drink/chat/tweetup) I think I'll need it more than usual this year...

pure Darcy on this, some fabulous Christmas stamps.
and this!

 Hotpicks from July on this tag - some of my favourite tissue brayering/background stamping here

Paperartsy are very generously giving away some free door passes for the show, and have kindly donated a pair of one day tickets for me to give away here too - so if you fancy coming along (it's a cracking day out, can't promise for my part in it...) then mention in your comment that you'd like to be included in the draw.  The draw closes at midnight UK time on Friday 9th September and I'll pick a random winner out of a hat next Saturday 10th September - to give me time to post the tickets to you.  Please make sure your comment allows me to contact you.
The show takes place on the weekend of 19th and 20th September.
