a little trip out for a fab day........!

Well what a day I had in Harrogate on saturday it was such a treat to be surrounded with such fab products and crafty stash...
Well Kirsten and myself set off at 9:15 am her o/h was driving I was so excited as this was my first ever craft show and I didn't know what to expect. When we arrived I couldn't believe how many people were already busy buying stash.
We decided on a method to make sure we didn't miss anything which was to do one side of the hall at a time and a break for lunch in the middle...........
My favourite stalls were Craft work cards, hobby house and lili of the valley....they had some fab products and some beautiful stamps ....
whilst browsing the stalls i'm sure I spotted Wendy rhodes and Sara from Create and craft much to Kirstens embarrasment (Wholly down to me may I add) as i said quite loudly 'theres sara from crafters companion just as she looked up and spotted Kirsten looking in her direction soz honey i was a little create and craft star struck!!!!
We kept a good eye on the time after lunch as we were meeting Kath at 3.30 at the cafe which I was soo looking forward to.....
I managed to get some nesties!!!! (my first set) and a new fiskers border punch and a WOJ stamp that I have been after for ages I'll share her with you tommorrow if I have chance as I have inked her up but not had chance to colour her yet..........cant wait!!!!
Then at last I got to meet the lovely Kath we chatted and had a lovley time she introduced me to Dawny P, who in turn then introduced me to Marcea and her mum who were also at the show it was lovely to meet them and have a good natter, Kath gave me a beautiful folder of penny black images which I showed in my previous post and some lovely craftwork card goodies and more images!!!! and i gave her a little something too! before we knew it the announcer had announced that the show was closing at half four ( 10 mins!) , the time had flown but there was just enough time to check out one last stall before saying our goodbye's..........
I had such a fab day with Kirsten and meeting new bloggy friends I can't wait for the next show
ooh what a ramble!!!
