Samuel Taylors got hit by the mob....

Hi all

Well no card from me tonight.... just some photo-proof of where I was today and who I was with!!!  From left to right, Laurie (Designer Diva), Pami (Pami's Crafty Creations),  me......  and Lisa (My Makes'n'Me).. 

While Laurie and Pami were up in Yorkshire visiting Lisa, we decided to get together at Samuel Taylors in Skipton (not sure they knew what had hit them when we breezed into the papercraft dept... )......  and we had a FABULOUS time browsing the goodies and buying some luscious stash!!  Of course, I couldn't keep up with them as they'd already been to a craft show yesterday, and a couple of other craft shops before getting to Skipton.... so I had some catching up to do!

I've met Lisa a few times now, but haven't met Laurie and Pami before, so it was really lovely to actually meet them both in the flesh so to speak! (They were actually fully dressed, honest - they would have been chilly if they hadn't been today, it was a bit brrrrrrrrrr to say the least!)  Sorry, sidetracked... typical me - that's how my mind is just lately - it zips so cleanly from one thing to another I forget what I started talking about in the first place!

ANYWAYS.... good company and a lovely time.. and a craft shop too!  What more could we ask for? 

Big hugs to my blogging buddies... and to my new friends

PS Hope you're feeling a bit better now Laurie.... travel sickness is not nice....
PPS I really must try to keep my eyes open just slightly when I have a photo taken!

  6. Hi Christine, you all look so happy in the picture - and it sounds like you all had a great time as well!!

    So are you going to do a new stash picture soon? Assuming here that you didn't go in a craft shop and come out empty handed! Did you?!


  7. Great photo and I bet you had quite a lot of laughs. Nice people,
    Funny, thursday night the fact that I had no blog photo came up and I said it was because I never look to have any eyes.
    Glad you had a good day.
