Slap my wrists

I've been MIA again, sorry but life has been very hectic here.   It's been two weeks of disasters and calamities, and everything that could go wrong has!  That's life though, all you can do is go along for the ride, do as much damage limitation as you can and hope you come out the other end in one piece.

I'm now doing demos for Creative Expressions, and my first demo was yesterday at the South Stamp show at Worthing.   I was on Amanda's Hobby Hideout stand showing the folks Cosmic Shimmer paints, mica powders, distress inkpads with cut'n'dry foam, the Spellbinder Wizard with Nesties and Impressibility's, and of course the beautiful rubber stamps.  After a major panic attack just before the show opened it all went well and was very enjoyable.  I met some lovely new people and some lovely people who remembered me from helping out Paul Church on the WS Designs stand and came to say hello.  It was much appreciated, as was all the lovely comments about my samples.

I did manage to squeeze in my DT projects for the Polka Doodles challenge for week 17 and 18, Apologies for not getting last weeks on (oops) but it's here now!  Why not take a look at the fabby samples made by the rest of the Design Team, get some inspiration and have a go yourself and entre the challenge.  And don't forget to have a looksey at the Polka Doodles shop, there's some great products at good prices and you mustn't forget to look at all the fabulous Polka Doodles CD's (the new one All Around and Everywhere is amazing)  and stamps.

For all you crafters out there that live in the Sussex area, have you ever been to Amanda's Hobby Hideout at Selsey?  Amanda stocks a wide variety of art and crafting products and has a wide range of Creative Expressions goodies.  It's one of those shops that has something different everywhere you look with lots of hidden gems that are hard to find elsewhere.  She does mail order and is at the moment having her website re-vamped.   I will get the correct details from her and post them at a later date.

Week 18 Polka Doodles challenge card for Summer Blooms.  Template from the Paper Boutique cd, and papers from Candy Doodles cd.
Week 17 Polka Doodles Challenge project. Papers from the new cd All Around and Everywhere.
Some of the samples from yesterdays show.  All Creative Expressions products and all available from Amanda.
I've also used one of the X-cut leaf cut and emboss punches on here.  Now It's hard to find a punch that does both successfully but this one delivers both (shock horror, lol).
Sorry some very bad photography here I'm afraid.
Here's hoping for a quieter few weeks.  Pleeeeeeeeeeeeease........................................

It was lovely to see you again yesterday Dee though sorry there wasn't more time to chat. I'm sure you were really busy as I know I was and hardly stopped all day.
Can see you've been busy with samples which all look fabulous.
