Expect No Sense What So Ever!

If you have stopped by for intelligent conversation ... you are going to be very very disappointed! I am beside myself with excitement ... today is the day that I get to go to Stictches ... the Craft Trade Show at the NEC! I LOVE it ... I get to meet up with lots of people that I rarely see ... so lots of Coffee and Chat ... I get to see all the new products in the flesh ... so lots of ooohing and arrrhing .... and I get to see ...
LORD TIM of HOLTZ ... in the flesh ... making much gorgeousness ... I CANNOT wait! I do promise to Tweet lots and fill you in on all the gossip so you can follow me @LindaElbourne if you want to see what I am seeing :0) Otherwise ... I will post on here just as soon as I get home!
Back to the job in hand before my squeeeeealing reaches fever pitch ... it is Monday ... which means ... fan fare please ... there is a new theme over at Simon Says Stamp and Show ... and the theme this week is ... Take Your Pick: London, Paris or New York! I made this hangy thing with Graphic 45 Papers, Maya Road Chip and some Lord Tim of Holtz Idea-Ology and dies ... you know Tim ... the man that can walk on water while fluffying up the clouds with just a splodge of Matte Medium and a Paper Piercing Tool!
Do join us for the challenge this week ... Simon Says Stamp have once again generously donated a $50 Shopping Spree!
I must away ... I really need to stop jumping up and down and actually get my act together ...
Have a lovely week people ...
Laters!
