A great day out

Well, Sally and I had a brilliant time at the Sir Stampalot Demo Day. There were seven very talented ladies demonstrating various techniques, including our dear blog friend Brenda. It was so lovely to meet her face to face and have a chat. Brenda was showing us how to make the most beautiful paper roses, using punches. Have a look at the gorgeous samples on her blog, though I have to say the photos most certainly don't do them justice.

After watching the demos, we went round the shop for some much needed retail therapy. Twice. I'm sure we can't be the only ones who, having paid for our purchases, can't leave a shop without just one more look round! Talking on the way home, Sally and I agreed that we had come away with more inspiration from that one event than from all of the past few big shows we've been to put together. So I'd just like to say to Brenda, thanks so much for the warm welcome you gave us, and we'll definitely be back again for the next Demo Day.

It was such a lovely day.Thanks for navigating and keeping me company in such difficult driving conditions. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. It was just what I needed. I've already made two roses and drooled over my promarkers lots!

Hello Lynne

Thank you so much for your very kind words.

I really appreciated you and Sally making such a long jorney to see us all at Stamplaot and pleased you had such a good time, even if your purses are much lighter !

Looking forward to seeing your creations with those new goodies.
