What An Exciting Start To The Week!!!

I managed to get to the trade show at the NEC on Monday and meet lots and lots of lovely people, especially Sue Wilson, Hels Sheridan and Ali Reeve demonstrating all their new products that will be coming our way very soon. Others I only managed to get a glimpse of such as the great Tim Holtz, but still nice to see everyone in the flesh as it were. By the way Sues card samples are to die for.

I came away on a real high and inspired to get going with some projects that have been waiting to be finished and to start some new ones, also have had some inspiration to get going with some of my own products that have been waiting in the wings for a long time too.

My personal life has been very mad for the last three years and I think it may be coming to a more stable time (fingers crossed and everything else), our son and his fiance, who have been living with us for the last few months are about to move into their own home and have a baby. Yes we are about to be grandparents, although we said we were to young to be granny and grampy yet, we are really loving the idea and getting so excited. This has meant that we will have a spare room, but not for long as this will be mine all mine. This will enable me to get going with all these ideas and projects. I will try and put up photos of the transformation.

The days have gone by so quickly this week, but I have managed to make a couple of challenge cards.

Primarily this card was for the Polka Doodles Challenge. This week was a Recipe of 1 x image, 2 x papers, 3 x embellishments, but I have entered it into the following others:
A for Animal Antics - Alphabet Challenge
Anything Goes - Allsorts Challenge
