Sunday 24th

Sunday morning and again Natalie came and picked me up from the hotel this time with Julie who was feeling a little worse for wear after 4 nights of performing her show and then an end of show party Saturday night/Sunday morning but to her credit she made it!!
We all went to Harrogate to the great paper extravaganza, the girls have been before but it was my first time and it was like being a kid in a candy store. We shopped from 10-1pm stopped for some lunch than shopped again until 2.30...This is when Natalie and I were booked in to do the craft work cards work shop.

Natalie and I doing the work shop

Sorry to say it was a little disappointing very rushed and not very well organised.... the cards we produced weren't really to my taste but it was an experience.
I think there may have been a time when I would have been very happy with what I had made!!! but our expectations change!!!

The Cards we made !!!

A bit more shopping and then back to the hotel.... to have a look at all my new goodies!!

My new stash click picture for a better look!!!

Here it is all layed out on the bed doesn't look a lot but it was!!!!... I exceeded my budgets by 25% but never mind its only money!! back to work tomorrow to pay for it I knew there was a reason to keep working full time!!!.
You can't see them in the picture very well but I did get some bargain Penny Black Stamps!!

Thanks to both Natalie and Julie for a great weekend. Sue :o)

Katie said...

Gorgeous stash Suzanne, lucky you! I'm so glad you had a good time. I know what you mean about working full time, swings and roundabouts. Working takes up too much crafting time but if you don't work you can't buy the gorgeous stash to craft with! LOL


Jo said...
