Look Away Now !

Hi Crafters,
***ENABLER ALERT***
(I do not wish to be blamed for making you get more crafty stash)
 
I've had a few requests to share my crafty purchases from my bi-annual pilgrimage to the NEC last Thursday.
As I laid them out to take the picture I realised just how much I had bought but they were all things I NEEDED, you know how it is girls. I was pleasantly surprised to see the Magnolia stand there this year and just had to snap up some dies. I got some great bargains from the 'Every crafts a pound' stall and like Jacee I had to get some of the Beatrix Potter CD roms. I was also lucky enough to get the free £50 gift bag from Crafters Companion on the Pink Frog stall for being one of the first five customers although it isn't in the picture here. So all in all I was a lucky girl and had a fab time.
Any how, waffle over, this is what you have been waiting for...
 
 
I always stock up on cardstock while I am there as postage is very high on the net. I couldn't resist the Inkylicious and Lavinia stamps, I have some ideas planned for those and of course I needed more ribbons and lace.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my haul, good job it only happens twice a year though.
Happy crafting!
 
Lorraine

That's some haul Lorraine! it's such a tempting place though isn't it? what a pity we couldn't have met up, that would have been great to meet you, or maybe not with me and my germs! LOL maybe if we are both there again another time we could do that.
