Sydney Stitches and Craft Show

Hello,
We had the best day at the show yesterday!!! Kerrie and I walked around all three floors - or was it four!!! anyway we walked lots. The ground floor was the best for us with the papercraft stores mostly there. For the first time ever I didn't look at any of the fabric, embroidery etc. just everything to do with papercraft. A couple of the beading stalls caught our attention mainly looking for spacers though.
We both managed to part with a few dollars, buying the things we don't get to see in our local shops. Flowersoft, Sparkling H2O's, Glimmer Mist and a couple of Basic Grey 6 x 6 paper packs (can you believe we don't see these, I bought one from GKD last month!!!).
Anyway, look I took a picture of my stash to show you......... lol.

What do you think - not too bad!!!

I took my little camera with me so here's a couple of pictures - but I only remembered I had the camera towards the end of our day and we both look a bit tired and no lippie left!!!

















A very kind man took this picture of the two of us when I said I was going to blog it!!! He said OK get my sign in and I'll take the picture - what a cheek! Actually we liked his stall and left him some of our money!!
So no card to show today but guess what - I'm going to be playing with some of my new stuff!!!
Have a great day.
Till next time.........
