What a day!

A little while ago The Stamp Man posted they would be at a show in Leeds organised by Ross Papercraft Shows.    Seeing this I went for a nosey and learnt that there would be a Ross Papercraft Show today in Hull.

Today I went, easy access, easy parking and fabulous venue light airy with room for heaps more stands.   Hopefully as Peeps learn about these shows they will go and support them.

Had a good mooch round finding interesting this is and that's.   Stopped at the Stamp Man stand had a lovely chat with Ian and then went to watch Jill demonstrate.    Jill and Ian both remembered me from previous shows (I've only met them twice before) Jill even remembered my name!!! blown away or what!   We had a lovely chat and then tongue in cheek I said if ever you need someone on your team I'd love it.  To which Jill replied consider yourself hired!!!!   Now I'm torn between wanting to do a jig, shout for joy, hug Jill and wake up!

Wondered around the show a little more and then went back to the Stamp Man to collect a few stamped images Jill has given me.   Oh and take Ian a pint of bitter but that is another story (never dare a dare devil).   Just bidding them farewell when my name is announced I had just won the prize draw! £20 to spend at the show, you can guess which stand I spent it at LOL.    Capping the day off Ian agreed to let me take a picture of Jill and him.


We agreed to do it as an fly on the wall shot but just as I was getting them framed a chap stood in front of me!   So the shot is of a slightly dis-believing Jill checking that Ian had agreed to this!   Which I promised would not appear on Face book.

A very happy and excited Zoechaos then drove home.   And altered the box you see at the top of this rather long post.  In honour of the occasion everything I've used has come from The Stampman, moon glow sprays and ep.  Aspects of Design Stamps and the very delicious Stampendous aged and shabby powders.

Fashionable Stamping are celebrating their first birthday with an Anything goes Challenge so I'm sharing this box with them.

The Stamp Man challenge has a Anything Goes Celebration theme, given the circumstances I'm hoping this box will qualify.

Come and Get it Challenge want anything but a card, they might my box!

The Crafty Pad Designs theme is Things with Wings

Think I'd better go and check my lottery ticket LOL

Update, still  not checked the ticket but have corrected this post Malcolm's name is Ian LOL
