Good news first:

Lots of new stash from the NEC!!!!

Bad news, 2nd crop in 2 weeks cancelled due to low numbers attending :(.

At least it gave me time to make Mums Mothers day cards. Still not finished these yet, wrestling with a new card for my eclips, much paper has ended up in the bin :o

Well, it's one way of getting through old stash!!

New stuff bought:

A hot gem tool and lots of gems.

3 12x12 masks and some lovely chalk spritz sprays.

Gorgeous hand carved indian wooden printing blocks

A bag of felt offcuts.

Clay modelling set for harry (who kept me company)

A pressie for Mum for next Sunday

A Tim Holtz rosette die and bags and boxes cartridge for the eclips.
I used a fair amount of the new stash on this LO I made for the weekly UKS challenge.The background is spritzed with the chalks over a butterfly mask. The flowers are made with the rosette die, and even one of the wooden printing blocks makes an appearance on the backing paper behind the photos.

The pictures are of Katie being fitted for her prom dress, first of many photos I'm sure.

And have you done yours yet?

Your census that is.

Ours is finished and ready to be posted. I wonder who will be interested in it 100 years down the line when they are made public?

copy that census before you post it! so that your descendants will be able to look at it any time in the next 100 years instead of having to bl**dy wait!. I filled ours in on line and kept the paper copy in the family history file
