A Few Things to Show & Tell...

The first is as I said in my previous post I went to the Stitch & Craft Show at Olympia in London with my friend Duang & had a fabulous time, the only problem was it took us over 5 hours to get there! It was really hot on the coach with the sun pouring through the windows & very bumpy lol - I can't tell you how glad I was to get there.  There were 3 levels with knitting on the lower floor, sewing & jewellery making on the ground floor & papercrafting on the top floor.  I brought a few bits & pieces & the highlight of the day was doing the jewellery workshop (I have just started to dabble in jewellery making so it was nice to get some hints & tips :o)  (you can see the necklace I made below).  4 1/2 hours on the coach to get back home & I was shattered.

Secondly it's new digi releases at Paper Pretties on Mondays & today I've made a bookmark using this fun Easter image called "A Basket For You".  I coloured it with ProMarkers as usual, added a stamped Easter egg, Glamour Dust & the papers I used (which I printed on both sides) were a free download from Printable Heaven & I finished off with Ribbon & some staples.

I'm entering my bookmark for these challenges:
Stamp Something - Something Sweet
Crafty Calender - Spring
Aly's - Happy Spring
Secret Crafter - Anything But a Card
Polka Doodles - All About Books
I Did It - Spring
Stampin with the Dragon - Bring on Spring
2 Sisters - Furry Friends

& last by no means least Gerda at StampFairy has another new release today too called "Lenny Cupcakes" which are really cute & yummy :o)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend & have a great week :o) I'm off to work now but luckily only until 2.00 pm (which IS good as I'm still catching up from the weekend lol.
