Voyage Beneath the Sea Planner by Elaine   Morning everyone, it's a bit early lol!!!  Olis just home from his night shift and as I was awake I thought I'd get a head start on my day and get writing.

A day at the Races and a 'How to Make' our pocket picture book

Afternoon everyone, how's your Sunday going.  I've just finished unpacking the car after a great day at the Newbury Papercraft Show yesterday.  We got off to a wobbly start as the sat nav took us to the wrong entrance - well maybe it way me driving the wrong way!!! but once we'd found our way to the Berkshire Stand we were on a roll.  Sarah and Cathy did an absolutely fabulous job of manning the stall and moving it in and out of the venue, thank you sooooooo much both for all your help and support xxx.  What a great show, we had a brilliant day and loved seeing everyone who called by the stand.  Thank you to everyone who shopped with us and joined in the Safari themed make and take sessions (see below for what we made and how to make it).   Here's a few pics taken during the day.  We'll be at the next Newbury Papercraft Show on 8th July 2017 - hope to see you there.  The 'Make and Take' was a simple pocket picture book;  If you fancy

From left to right: Exploding Sewing Box, Planner, Perpetual Pocket Album, Pencil Case  evening everyone, I hope you've had a fan dabby dozzy weekend.  I was down at Birds in the Barn yesterday and had a great time demoing some of my products and altering them in papers from my favourite paper company - who's that I can hear you asking lol!!!  Why it's Graphic 45 ....................... Thank you Janet for inviting me down and Karen for looking after us during the day and of course ladies for joining me.  Here's some of the lovely ladies who came along ...................  It's always exciting when new collections are released so I thought you might like to visit the G45 stand (if you haven 't already) and see what Diane, Charee and Aimee have to say about their latest creations that we'll be crafting with very shortly.  The stand is as always stunning and the projects by the design team are as always out of this world.  Lots of inspiration there
