Ally Pally Day!

Hello friends
I am jumping in my car and heading to North London today - Alexandra Palace!
I've never demonstrated there before so it will be a new experience but a great one I'm sure.
I have chosen to do Spellbinders flowers and boxes for the majority of my demos.
I realised it would be nice to take along some previous projects to dot around the desk and 
I wondered if I had a few in my storage boxes (under the bed!)
This was just some of the contents from box number one! 
Oh my!  I do seem to like my flowers, tags and boxes don't I! 
I am of course itching to do butterflies..hoping those dies will be available so I can add those to my flowers.
One of the dies I will be using is - Anemone Flower Topper -
I never get bored of tweaking those petals!
I found this project in the bottom of the box and thought I would share it with you today.
A matching set -  I've used Core'dinations patterned cardstock and sanded to reveal the detail.

I hope to see some of you today, I'm taking my camera along and I will try to find a moment
to take some photos for those who live too far away to visit London.
Talking of far away...some of you have been so kind and invited me to your home towns including the far reaches of Scotland - wow - I would so like to visit there.
At the moment I am visiting various craft clubs, chatting, taking along 'make and takes' and loving every minute of it.  If you attend a craft club and would like to see me, please let me know.
No matter how far - I'm compiling a list and planning a grand tour next year.
I would love my crafty bus  to come to fruition but I suspect that might be a little ambitious...
although a famous quote: ....
"You may never know what results come of your action, 
but if you do nothing there will be no result" 
Have a lovely Sunday.
Take care friends.

Hi Christine, I just love making boxes and decorating them, I have made ovar 150 for the Advent Frame boxes which a few friends have asked me to make for Xmas. Love your designs.

hi Christne - they look gorgeous and sure will go down well. Ally Pally is lovely - the building is great and the few times I have attended when I have been in London the show has been fab - the atmosphere, the demos and the whole atmosphere - I think it is my favourite show to attend so shame it is so far away. Hope you enjoy it and sure you will.

Morning Christine, What an array of flowers you found under your bed, they are lovely, you see they can manage very well without being 'watered' ha ha.
I'm loving the Anemone Flowers box you found, it's absolutely gorgeous, oh no, that's another flower die to add to my evergrowing list ha ha.
Have a lovely day today, sorry to have missed you, but I went yesterday and it was brilliant.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

What gorgeous samples Christine,I so need that little box!
I do hope you have a great day and am sorry I can't come and say hello.Maybe next time.
Your little van gave me a thought,maybe there could be a crafting programme,with you travelling round and doing different makes at different venues! There seems to be a lot of cooks in the Same vans going round so hey why not!
Have a great day,

Hi Christine,
What a wonderful selection you have had hidden under your bed,I have boxes under my bed but they contain photo albums etc only one full of Christmas crafting items which I'll have to pull out to see what I can use this year, but like Val I too have plenty of dust.
Hope you have a great day at Ally Pally.

Hi Christine
Just wanted to say that it was really nice to meet you today. I do hope you enjoyed yourself at Ally Pally, you certainly looked as though you were! There were always plenty of ladies around you when I passed by.

Your samples are just gorgeous, it was lovely to be able to see them in 'real life'. What a stash you have under your bed :-))
Hope your journey home was ok, mine was all in the rain, but I did it in an hour so not too bad.
Relax and enjoy your evening.
