Well can you guess where I've been this weekend???
Yes, the largest paper craft show in the UK.
This is the hall you go into when you first walk in, everything is so spacious.
So who did we meet then, or perhaps it's easier to say who we didn't - lol.
Here we have Helen on the left and Emma, who I went with, on the right. This was actually my very first photo of the day!!!
By the way, this post is very, very picture heavy, you might want to go grab a drink!!
Hazel on the left, Alison on the right.
Left to right, Emma, Lily, Nicky & Jo.

Have you noticed a trend with these photos, yes, they are all around the PaperArtsy stand!!!

At then end of the show a few of us go together and took over the pub.

Pen, me and Carol. Photo courtesy of Alison - thank you!!
This is everyone in the party including Mr PaperArtsy who was very brave, the only bloke!! (Front left in case you'd not noticed!!)
Not surprisingly, we were the last 6 to leave the pub, Alison and Hazel went back to Kings X and Emma and I went out to eat with Gillian in her new head gear and Nicky.
Thanks everyone for such a wonderful day, it really was great to meet you all.
Oh by the way, this is what I bought!!
So on Sunday we set off to:
Cass Art in Islington, and Emma was most impressed that I actually managed to get us there!!!
But as it was such a gorgeous day, we decided to do brunch outside first!!!
And this is what I got!! Not much really, but was nice to go in and see. It wasn't anywhere near as big as I thought it was going to be though.
And finally a big thank you to Lily for giving me her spare bottle of the Dylusions spray ink and remembering to bring it!!
I had a fabulous weekend and thoroughly recommend the experience to anyone who is thinking about it - thanks again to everyone who I met and came into contact with and it was especially nice to finally meet Alison and Nicky as they were my very first cyber friends - cheers guys!!
