It's taken me a few days to recover enough energy to blog this trip! On Sunday I went with some of the other crop girls to the Stamping and Scrapbooking show at Ally Pally. We got there about 10 minutes after it opened and got in almost immediately, no queue to speak of.
I had been saving for a few months for this trip and ended spending about £425 - would have bought a few more things, there were some stamps and punches I was going to go back for and the wonderful Linda E (I met Linda E! Yay!) showed me some new paint which I rather liked the look of............ but by then my back was protesting forcefully and I couldn't carry any more!
So here is the loot! The first picture has most of the 24 clear stamps I bought. The second has the 11 rubber stamps, mounted and unmounted, plus a couple of clear ones I managed to miss off the first photo! Third is the 9 bottles of Glimmer Mist, 3 of cosmic shimmer, plus punches and metal tools. I am racking my brains to try and remember where I got the flower punch from because they had another that I wanted to get, if anyone knows, can they tell me??? The fourth picture is everything else, some gems and pearls, a tray and three frames to decorate, some charms, ribbons and bows and a couple or three inkpads!
I carried all that lot in two bags-for-life, so not really surprising my back went! All in all a great day...... and next year I will be taking a trolley :-)
