Someday, the altered art you make today will be
old, faded, falling apart, and someone else will salvage the bits and use them
in new altered art.It's the best that any piece of art can hope for

Had the best weekend, and the trolley had an outing!

Back from Alexandra Palace and the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking Show! Had a lovely weekend cos not only do I get to go craft shopping but I have to make a slight detour of a couple of hundred miles and pick up my bessie in Kent. So a weekend away with dear friends, crafty shopping and meeting up with more friends at the show, what more can a girl ask for?

Had a bit of a spend but there was nothing new out there and a few prime stall holders missing, so just stocked up on supplies really, but that didn't detract from a lovely weekend.
I didn't do any ATC swapping like I normally do, but here are a few RAK's I made in the form of brooches/necklaces.

And take a look at this awesome book that was made for me by Debs! Gorgeous isn't it! But hands off you can't have it cos it's got my name on it!

Here is Deb's blog on Docrafts, don't know if you can view it if you aren't a member, perhaps someone could let me know!
