Trade Show pictures

Hello Everyone,

I hope that you have enjoyed a lovely weekend and have spent it relaxing as much as possible.
As promised I have some photographs from the trade show which Mark and I had pleasure attending last weekend.  The show was a lot bigger this year and there were more International companies than last year so that was interesting.

I am going to start off with this fabulous photograph with two of my favourite celebrity men
Mr Nigel May and Mr Phil Martin no less!!!
It was lovely to see you both.

and here is the lovely Jodie Johnson from Tonic Studios and one of her fabulous creations that she makes from the Tonic Dies.  We placed an order for a great range of Tonic Products including these dies and punches that Jodie demonstrates so brilliantly on Create and Craft.

Here are some more of Jodie's fabulous creations and I am sure you will agree with me they look so life like. Really looking forward to getting this order so we can start creating fabulous blooms in the workshops.

And now for the lovely Noreen from Flowersoft deomonstrating the stunning new moulds that Flowersoft have launched recently on Create and Craft.
These have the most exquisite and fragile detail and can be used for both cake decorating and papercrafting using air dry clay.
Guess what .............  we ordered those too! and the fabulous new CD rom and toppers featuring the stunning work from the House of Zandra.

These are some of the delicate results that can be achieved from using the moulds.

We just had to take these photographs - they certainly made us go Wow! these peices of artwork were being exhibited on the DCWV (Die Cuts with a View) stand and everything has been made with paper!

Next we popped over to the Bramwells stand and here are a few lovely samples from our lovely Mel Heaton using Hero Arts stamps and papers.

Well aren't these good enough to eat - we found these gorgeous paper cupcakes on the equally gorgeous stand from The Hobby House.

and look at this very eye catching Easter tree using some of the stunning flowers that we have ordered for the shop.

And have a look at these two!! They are, of course, the fabulous Anne-Marie from Hunkydory and Leonie from Create and Craft. They both won awards at the show.  Well done and so well deserved. 

Thankyou for popping by and I hope that you have enjoyed a few snaps from the show.
I will be popping a few samples from my recent C and C Spellbinder shows tomorrow if you want to have a look at these.
I also am at the studio next week on the following days:
Tuesday 8am and 7pm
Thursday 2pm, 4pm and 7pm
Friday 10am and 4pm
Saturday 11am, 4pm and 7pm

Another busy week ahead! I will still be demonstrating Spellbinders from the Blockbuster but they will all be new demonstrations so have a look.  
I am now going to sit and colour until I go to bed - I find this the very best way to relax!
Bye for now and hope to see you back again soon,
Jo xx
