Simon Says ...

Wow! What a fab weekend ... but boy did it fly! It was the Ally Pally Stamping and Scrapbooking show and I spent all day Saturday and Sunday demoing alongside the wonderful Lin Brown ... it is always great fun and we get to see so many friendly faces too ... some bloggers ... some non bloggers ... so  Hi to all of you that popped by ... too many to mention individually ... but it was great to see you all! As well as  being great fun ... it is exhausting ... everything aches ... from the top of my head to the tips of my toes! And I don't even help with set-up or breakdown ... I did n't get my camera out once ... really sorry about that ... I did intend to ... note to self ... must try harder!
Anyways ... back to the tag in hand ... well not in hand ... but you knew what I meant ... right???
The tag is stamped using The Wendy Vecchi's stamps ... coloured with Lord Tim of Holtz's Distress Stains and Colour washes. You know Tim ... the man that can swim in the Arctic Ocean while making ice carvings out of icebergs representative of every countries landmarks with just the lid from a Distress Stain and an inch long piece of tissue tape.
It is indeed Monday again so this is my design piece for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge ... the theme this week is to show some ditressing! As always our very generous sponsors, Simon Says Stamp are providing a $50 shopping voucher to one lucky entry ... so ... if you have n't joined in before ... why not make your first entry this week! And if you have n't got time to join in ... well pop over and check out the rest of the Design Team's work ... it really is very lovely!
I have news too ... this week Mathew I shall be playing the lovely Karen ...not for the whole week you understand ... but I am indeed playing shop in Olney ... on Wednesday ... I am not sure 'playing' is the right word ... but I am rather excited! It will be my first time ... and quite possibly my last if the wonderful Lin and the lovely Karen come back to a complete shambles!
Okay ... so now I am rambling ... it is getting very late and I am getting very tired ...
Laters!

What a lovely tag - think I saw it on your demo desk at AP?? It was fun, as usual. Good luck with running the shop on Wednesday. I promise not to phone in with a load of fake orders, or awkward questions, lol!

Hi Linda, It was great to watch you demo on Saturday. I'm not surprised at how much you ache, so do I and I was only watching and shopping and only for 1 day not 2, lol!

Love today's tag. The colours are fabulous and love those little flowers. Have fun on Wednesday.

Hugs
