Back from BIG stamp at Ally Pally

We couldn't make the BIG stamp show at Ally Pally on the Saturday so @Crafty_sara, Perspective Tom and my Mother Outlaw headed off to North London. I spent most of my primary school years in Wood Green so it's always nice to go back.. not so great for the passengers who hear my anecdotes every time.. chuckle!

We were warned of the change of hall by @stampingbyh (thank you!) and gazed at Ally Pally's Great Hall. It was interesting that there were the same amount of stalls but so much more space it seemed almost empty. I am pleased to say the layout was the same so when we rushed to buy craft card the stall was in the same place.  I had a strict shopping list and managed not to go too mad. I might have thrown in a couple of good value stamp sets but basically came back with what I went for.. oh and the obligatory double of something, this time actually it was 2 distress stains!

I was a very lucky girl and for my birthday my lovely Out-laws bought me some WOW Melt it embossing powders. Tom was fascinated by this (and Sam Poole demonstrating her stuff)  and we can't wait to have a go! Thank you.

It's a creative world - Alice fest!

The last couple of week at IACW there has been an Alice in Wonderland theme running, this is a sneaky peek at my contribution.
There have been the most wonderful ideas for tea parties and everything.. perhaps I can find an excuse to throw a party?

Crafty boots fairy tale challenge... Run, run as fast as you can!

The Crafty Boots challenge this time is set by Dionne and is fairy tales or nursery rhymes. It's caused me a few troubles.. I started off with James and the giant peach ideas, then moved onto Hansel and Gretal (sort of a dark forest style tag) and eventually mooches through my sizzix dies and found this cute little gingerbread man and a one off stamp of Mother Goose's house.

Run, run as fast as you can you can't catch me.. I'm a gingerbread man!

I used..
