Lots to Show and Tell - an Update

I have been busy with exciting things over the past week and am excited to be able to share some of these things with you... I had the privilege of meeting the owner and artist of Darkroom Door Rubber Stamps - Rachel Greig while at the Craft and Quilt Fair.

Rachel was the Guest Artist at the Fair and was diagonally across from the Booth where I was helping my friend and Stampin' Up Demo Ann.  In the quiet moments I wandered over and tried to learn a little bit more of her wonderful techniques as she demonstrated and ran make & takes with Darkroom Door Rubber Stamps, Viva Decor products and Ranger products!     - I am very fortunate to have come home with some of  her product and have had fun today and will be back with a card using one of her photo images tomorrow....here are some of her fabulous samples.

It is also exciting for me as I am going to doing some demo's and teaching some Classes Using darkroom door images at my LSS - this is an honour for me - Rachel is an Australian Artist and I am in awe of her talent - just quietly, I believe she is Australia's Tim Holtz - so watch out!!  LOL!

The Craft Fair was an incredible experience as you will see by the photos I managed to get - I could not resists taking this one of the Catchy Crafts Booth - they are the biggest Store in New South Wales and carry such a HUGE range of Spellbinders - check this out....

 I would love to say I got one of each but....BUT I did get an offer to teach at their store and may be looking at doing some Guest spots - how cool is that!!

Some of these divine roses did find their way into my craft supplies....who can resist - look how many rows of them - such a great way to buy them!!

Bling-a licious!!

Fabulously Metallic...

Flower Power

lace...lace...and more lace...

My cards for sale

Every crafting need at the Stampin' Up Booth where I helped my friend Ann, along with Lorraine and her daughter Denise

Ann had surgery on her foot the week before and was not meant to be on it....but check this gal out...

What a gal!! 

I look forward to coming back tomorrow and showing you a card or two.....Thank you for visiting today - I wish you could have been at the Craft and Quilt Fair with me - it was so much fun - I loved seeing all of those who stopped by to say hello and what a buzz to catch up with some of you who I am getting to know in Blogville - I just LURRRVVVE it!
