And how did the demo day was fandabbidosie....a big thank you to all the lovely lovely ladies who came along and for making me feel so was great fun and a special thank you to Karen and Kate for inviting me along and for keeping me supplied with lots of coffee...hope to be back to see you all again soon
Did take the old camera with me.....but it was so busy from the word go.... so not a lot of pics to show and not only am I a messy crafter at would seem that I am a messy demonstrator too.....big thank you to the lovely Alice who was a dab hand at finding my pokey tool time after time in the midden that was my table.

Abandoned for lunch

while the girls took a little break for some crafty shopping

and I have to say a big thank you to Kate for her patience with my endless requests for stuff I had forgotten to pack in my demo kit......and a little confession...I am sure I am home with your embossing tool Kate...haven't got round to unpacking my kit is still in the back of the car.......oops.
Having a lazy lie-in kinda day today with the Sunday papers...catch up with you all later.
Happy Valentine's everyone......Hugs Kath xxxxx
