Lets get Inky .............

JOFY 049 Stamp plate
Happy Friday everyone, can you believe another week has whizzed by and it's almost the weekend again.  Olivia, if you're reading this, loved our chat this morning and I did come home, grab a coffee and get bloggin' no G lol!!! (A Radio 2 Friday thing if you're a listener).
Last weekend I was invited along to host a workshop as the celebrity guest at the UK Stampers Network 20th Anniversary event down in Bicester.  Mickey, thanks so much for the invite and ladies it was great to meet you all.  What a fab anniversary event it was.  Lots of creative workshops, oodles of cake, fab chit chat and a really tasty Chinese too. 

Here's Mickey, the founder of the UK Stampers Network holding the Anniversary cake - it was soooooo tasty..   
and all the ladies at the event 
If you follow me you'll know I'm a paper girl first and foremost, but as I was at a stamping event thought we'd make A6 notebooks and create fun inky, stampy covers for them.  What a great time we had smooching the gloriously green Peeled Paint oxide ink around, stitching, binding and fussy cutting  our books into shape.  I love that we all started with the same ingredients and the books all looked so different. Here's a few pics
 Jane and Mickey on the fussy cutting :-)
Enjoy using your notebooks ladies :-)

If your a follower of mine you 'll know that I've been off work for a while following an op, but my life as a lady of leisure came to an end this week when I returned to the world of totally british beautiful fast fast cars and ones that go anywhere!!  I had a wonderful welcome back from my colleagues so thanks to everyone for making my first day as good as it was.  I thought I'd feel like the new girl, not able to remember anything, but just like riding a bike it all came flooding back :-) Now I feel like I've not been away lol!!!
