You spent HOW MUCH?!!!

Today I went to The Great Northern Papercrafts Extravaganza, yay! It was fantabulous and I am feeling thoroughly inspired. I went with a budget, promised not to overspend, bla bla bla yeah yeah yeah................. This is a selection of some of the things I got today (no, it's not all of them but my husband reads my blog ya know and a girl can't tell the truth all of the time). Big shout to Dyan from who offered to put her name in my new books so I could pretend I had borrowed them LOL! These new books are so so fab, I just know I'm gonna be too excited to sleep tonight :-)
Anyway, I had a sneaky peek at 'Canvas Remix' by Alisa Burke and made this little critter after being inspired. (I told you I am the queen of messing about!) I used Claudine Hellmuth paints and canvas:
He's a cute little guy isn't he? I can feel a few more of these coming on. Anyone out there want a new keyring?!
And here he is in his new home hanging off my craft tote bag. Oops, did I forget to mention I got a new tote bag today?

Only one more week of school till we get two weeks hols for Easter so lots of messing about time coming up soon. 6 sleeps to go...........
Ah well, off to bed so I can drool over my new books.............................byeee


  1. Love the new tote bag I think I looked at it too but I was waylaid and hypnotised by the tim Holtz disress ink pad tin LOL. Looks like you had a great time - so did i and I went both days tell you OH it could have been much much much worse!!

  2. You are so lucky to have great shows near you. I am really envious.:-)

    Budget at a craft fair? Not possible. We should start a support group. (Wherein we would quickly encourage each other to buy all the newest products !!)
