Shop till you drop!!! and fab friends

I have had the best day today
I picked my friend Sian up at 8.30 this morning and I drove us down to Exeter in Devon for the WestPoint Craft Fair, we arrived a 9.45 and it was let the shopping commence!!
I also met up with Annie from Ink 'n' Rubber it was so nice to meet a blogging friend in the flesh and we stopped for 30 mins at 12.00 for a cup of coffee and a chat, it was so nice to meet you Annie and thank you so much for the Sarah Kaye images.
Now are you ready here is what I bought I didn't seem like that much until I took it all out of the bags when I got home.



I went looking mainly for embellishments and boy did I find plenty!!



But hay it would have been rude to stop there so I also bought a couple of boxes to keep them in and one of those Xyron sticky thingame things to put the ribbons on with oh and a couple of spellbinder dies and a cuttlebug folder and some other bits and pieces that didn't make it into the picture as they were still hiding in the bags!!



I promised myself no stamps but I am afraid I didn't keep it, I am not overly sure about the F Friends stamps but there were two I just couldn't resist and some papers and card, oh dear this was me being careful!!!

We came out of the Fair at 16.30 tired but very happy and I drove us home. My darling hubby had supplied tea so I sat down to a nice hot meal just in time to watch Strictly Come Dancing what better day could a girl have!!!



There was also a beautiful card folder stuffed full of images waiting for me from the lovely GINA



And lastly but by know means least Annie gave me this great folder stuffed with Sarah Kaye images when I met her today such a kind person.

I am such a lucky girl ( well woman really) but all these goodies make me feel like a child again!!

Well done if you have made it to the end of this post and thanks for looking. Sue :o)
