Ally Pally.

I went to Ally Pally yesterday. I have never been before so wasn't really sure what to expect. As you can see I bought a few bits but I was focused and restrained in my shopping. I was pleased to get the album and paper ready to do Shimelle's Journal Your Christmas class for the 4th year. I also got some lovely wooden shapes (that are going to be shared with friends) a brick stamp, some metal birds, a few charms, some Pinflair bookbinding glue which I have been trying to get for aaaages and some more UTEE. My splurge was the Dylusions stamps. With 3 girls I will use this loads.

I went with a group of friends and we have just made a joint order of Smash bits and pieces from the States. We ordered on Saturday and they arrived on Thursday so I was also able to collect my little pile of Smash goodies! Again we decided to share the mini post-its and pages from the pads. I am starting to "smash" stuff in but I don't know yet whether I will show or keep it to myself! Smash is something I never had really thought about but unknown to me a friend bought me one for my birthday at the same time as a completely separate group of friends were ordering theirs! And although poor Helly is still waiting for hers to arrive they have been the topic of much conversation. Whether they will be re-branded so they can be sold in the UK again I don't know but I think this little lot will keep me going for a while!

And finally at the end of a very long post, this was the fabbiest thing we saw yesterday! It was done with shaving foam and cosmic shimmers! Guess what's on my shopping list for next week...Posted by Picasa
