Harrogate ... new stash and new friends / Singalong ..... Sunday!

Good morning, what a fantastic weekend it has been. I had my very first experience of the show at Harrogate and boy oh boy did I have fun. I managed to get some great shopping done (although I actually brought quite a bit of money home)!! Me and my mum were up at the crack of Dawn and arroved at Harrogate at around 8.15am. We were booked on the Copic workshop and I was really looking forward to it. Bev met up with us for the class and sadly we were not very impressed with it at all. The best bit of it was the chocolate muffin but Bev and I have decided to go on a full day course to see what these babies can really do.

Here are my goodies that I bought. I am so glad I had saved up, my stash diet was worth it cos it meant I could get what I wanted yesterday.

Lots of lovely new dies, papers, swirl punch, flowers and spacers (think Jill from The Hobby House got most of my money, lol) to play with ..... so happy with these :o) Also bought some of the fab Diamond Dust for my snowflakes (when I get round to making xmas cards).

Here is my slight over indulgence in one or two ribbons, lol ... hmmm might have a problem hahaha. I also got 3 WOJ stamps and some really handy ticket sentiment stamps. Some really cute little silk roses too.
The best part of the day was meeting up with some of my wonderful blogging buddies - woohoo real live people with voices .... so bizarre to hear accents but so lovely!

Nicola , Dawny P , me, Kath , Kirsten and Emma

Me, my mum and Bev aka chatterbox hahahaha

I also bumped into a few other buddies too but didn't get any piccies :o(
I have to say that meeting my blogging buddis was the best part of the day. Shopping is great, don't get me wrong, but I can doi that any time - it was so nice to finally meet everyone and spend a little time with them. I can't wait for the next one!!!!!
Top marks go to Mrs Wonka who spotted my deliberate mistake from yesterdays post!!!! I didn't post my usual song so I thought I better get one posted today. Now, this is a little bit rude so please don't play it if you might blush or be offended. I love Lily Allen and this song is fab!! Have a wonderful Sunday .... I am off to play with my new goodies!
