Magical times

Another of my my new Sugar Nelie fairies, Titania which I coloured with Promarkers and added lots of glitter and teamed with MME Snowed In papers. The snowflakes are acetate sparkly ones from Me and My Big Ideas with wooden snowflakes coloured with Promarkers on top. The sentiment is from Pollycraft and the corner was made with a Sizzix die.

Magical Monday Christmas in September

Had a fantastic day yesterday at Ally Pally with Lynsey and Lisa.

Thanks to my lovely hubby who drove us there and then went off to the Science Museum. By the time we got home he'd heard quite enough crafty chat for one day! We had a lovely chat with Vicky, Jacqui and Heidi. I wanted to try out the flexmarkers and what a lovely surprise when the demonstrator recognised me as it was Sarah one of my teamies from Totally Gorjuss. I had met Jacqui before but not the other ladies so it was great to meet them. I am busy sorting out all my new stash and finding a home for it before I start to play. I didn't buy any stamps (!!!!) as I have bought several lately but wanted mainly embellies and dies. I also got a 12 x 12 Tim Holtz paper pack I have wanted for ages at a bargain price of £12.99 .

Here's my new stash.
