Well, have I got news for you?

This has been a bit of a secret but Leandra has given me permission to spill the beans and it is more than exciting. Mr & Mrs Paperartsy (Mark and Leandra) have been working their little socks off to produce the next in the series of Hot Picks. Hot Picks 1009 and Hot Picks Xtra. These fabulous images on Hot Picks Xtra all fit their ingenious grunge flower dies. I think you'll agree that they have definitely excelled themselves this time. The best bit is......drumroll please.....I'm going to have them on my stand for Stevenage. Mark and Leandra are busy pressing rubber as I am typing this post and they are very generously going to deliver them into my hot little hands during show set up tomorrow!!!!


HOT PICKS 1009



HOT PICKS XTRA



Oh and there's more.....there's another secret from Paperartsy at the show too, but I'm sworn to secrecy about that until Sunday!!!!

Oh and there's even more surprises in store. I'm busy working on my very first project as a member of the Tim Holtz design team. My box of goodies arrived yesterday from Tim and it was stuffed full of fabulous treasures. Here's a teeny tiny peek at what I'm making, stop back tomorrow for the whole thing and of course the sample will be on my stand for you to see in the flesh.




Hope to see you at the show...it's going to be fun!!!


Lin

EDIT.....Silly me forgot to say that the show is at the leisure centre, Lytton Way, Stevenage on Sunday 10am - 4pm for non advance ticket holders.

Well done on your DT post Lin, really exciting for you. Late with the congrats as I just got back from my hols in Slovenia so only just found out.
Can't make the Stevenage show but will hopefully see you at Ally pally.
