The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show - London 14.04.2012 ;)

Woooow, what a day it was! 

I am still smiling and jumping with excitement after my trip yesterday to The Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace - aka Ally Pally ;).

I was very lucky to travel there in such great company of the super talented and super funny Ruby and her lovely daughter Natasha  ;).

The whole experience was just overwhelming, so many fabulous stalls with a vast amount of MUST HAVE goodies. I felt like a child in a candy shop, given a big trolley to fill it up with all the loveliness ;).

I loved the demos I saw at the Artistic Stamper, PaperArtsy and Creative Expressions stands with Hels Sheridan

And it was really great to finally meet in person my dear blogging friends Shirley, Brenda and Joanna. Shirley and Brenda are also my DT Sisters from the Fashionable Stamping Challenges ;-). Here's a piccie of me with Brenda:

But I must admit, my highlight was definitely stand no 62 with the lovely Traplet Publications girls Michelle and Viv, featuring the Craft Stamper and Scrap365 magazines. With a little help from my friend Ruby, that's where I found out out that my project has been published in the May issue of Scrap365!!! I haven't had my copy delivered yet, nor did I know which issue it was going to be featured in so it was such a fantastic surprise for me!!!

Here I am with Michelle and Viv, proudly displaying the page with my project - for all Scrap365 fans - look out for page 32!

Despite my legs and feet hurting from all the walking and jumping (with joy) I did yesterday, I am still smiling ;). This has definitely been the day of the year 2012 for me so far!

I apologise for neglecting my visits to your lovely blogs but with all the goings on I haven't had a free moment lately. But I'll be visiting you very very soon!

Big weekend hugs

p.s. Check back on Tuesday as I have a sweet surprise prepared for my crafty friends!

So glad to hear you had a great time Joanna and will look forward to my copy of Scrap 365 which has yet to come as I can't wait to see what you did.
As I said to Brenda, I'm still somewhat gutted that I wasn't able to come after all as I was away.
Maybe another time.
Have a great week.
Fliss xx

It was a great show wasn't it? I went with my sister and we were like two children scuttling from one stall to another! Congratulations on the publication in Craft Stamper!

Firstly, CONGRATULATIONS how wonderful for you to be contributing to a Traplet publication - so thrilled for you.
Can you believe it but I have never managed to attend a show so can only imagine how overwhelming it must be to see all those craft goodies calling your name (!).
