Stamperama - my first show visit of the year!

Hi all, just got back from a great day at Stevenage for the Stamperama show - got sidetracked so not many pictures, but there was a great crowd of the 'PAtwits' there... great to see Leandra Mark Lin and Emma and Hugo, from Paperartsy, and Lin, Chris, Lin, Alison, Julie Ann, Miriam, Caz N, Wendy, Sarah, Gabrielle, Freya, Kirsten, Lisa, sure I've forgotten someone, I am so sorry if that's the case...

Emma running the make and takes - colour swatches for the new Paperartsy Infusions, gorgeous little pots of pigment dye crystals that are water reactive - 12 fabulous colours.  at the table top right, Miriam, Wendy (former Stamp Attic Wendy) - was so great to meet her finally!
bottom row, left corner is Caz Newton. don't know the others..

 Lin and Lin! the first of many caught unaware expressions... sorry, Lin S!
 then Chris and Lin had a go at the Infusions...
 lunchtime... sorry Miriam!  and I've cut Jo off too... oops, didn't do well today!












forgot this one of Lin's demos with the new Infusions... nice!!

 stash pics... non Paperartsy stuff first... hardly anything caught my eye apart from some stencils, cos I don't have many......ahem
 and a reduced Stampendous grungy stamp set. little bundle of flowery ribbon and the white pen seems to have disappeared... some copper wire.
 first Paperartsy pic... just a few... some of the older C6 ink and the dog type plates (just need some EZ mount now... no-one had any) and one or two new Hot Picks..
 and a couple more... and some of the Infusions.. and a new colour chart.

Will try and take these in better light later but I know you lot are keen to see them as soon as possible!

Gorgeous stash, wish I'd been with you. Tried to introduce mum to white pen today, think it's just caused confusion. Do you think I could run special Alzheimer's craft classes!?
