The NEC - or shop till you drop :)

I had a wonderful day at the NEC today, spent too much, got lots of inspiration and a few bargains too - I'm still in disbelief about buying most of the new Distress Ink colours at £3 each - woo hoo!
I travelled up with Val, met Viv and Maureen and had a great time, here are the three desperadoes taking a short break from saving the economy by selflessly buying as much stash as could be carried:
Of course I did all I could to help them in their mission...
I got some amazing Hobby Art stamps of seaside scenes, some calorie free cupcake stamps from Elusive Images and a few other things I just couldn't do without. Towards the end of the day I saw this lady sitting in the aisle near Stamp Addicts. She was taking a well-earned rest, I have no idea who she is but I like her style, that looks like some serious shopping LOL!


  1. Glad you had a great day shopping. I would never dare to just plonk myself down like this lady but hey if needs must LOL!!!


  2. OMG!!!! Maureen is smiling and it's me that's pulling a face!!!! LOL - usually you never get a pic of Maureen smiling! Was good to see you and Val.... hope your bank balance doesn't take too long to recover!

  3. Wow, next time I want to go! Looks like the prefect friend shopping day, so glad you guys had fun!

    Glitterbee hugs,

  4. Glad you had a great time, Anne! And what a great price for distress inks. :) Fabulous photos, I like that lady there, how many bags..

    Hugs, Vanja

  5. Glad you had a lovely fun day :-) I will be going to the Ally pally in a couple of weeks ,, can't wait ,, :-) The lady sitting on the floor made me smile ,,, good for her !! :-) She obviously needed a sit down after all that shopping !! :-)
