How hot was it today?
I mean, just how did I manage to have myself tucked inside a building all day whilst the public at large lounged in their gardens and soaked up the blazing sunshine?
Aaaaah well, no matter really.
I was having a lovely time at DO HO (loving that cos DO HO - reminds me of MO FO...which is naughty but still.....). A number of expertly scrummilish card making gals along with Beckie Dreyer and Jane Dean had been invited along to sample the outlandishly lavish kits given to them to showcase around events, magazines and roadshows which included every line of Basic Grey and Doodlebug. We also got to see (and maybe even take a few packs of) the new kits being launched in July from the re-branded, re-fitted, re-invented line of Papermania.
You won't even recognise it - it's quite the phenomena.
Its about time the UK had an affordable stake in the scrapbook market
And I wish I got paid commission for all this but sadly I do not. Because if something is pappa poo poo, I won't love it or use it or indeed mention it. But the new lines are far from poo plops and Emma should be a very proud girly along with her DT in recognising that scrapbooking can be affordable, colourful and wonderful in the same breath. Shame daylight ran out as I got home but I am soooo going to show you what is coming to the nearest craft outlet in the morrow.
In the meanest of time, here is an overlay that I made on the train journey down to Bournemouth. 8 hours was not much fun on a steaming hot train (delay due to a suicide on the track - nice) and a spell of dashing across London on the tube with no air, signal failure at Winchester and a taxi driver who only spoke three words (yes, no, maybe....gah!). Having said that I did meet some incredibly fascinating people including a gentleman who is representing a warlord from Afghanistan at the house of commons today. He didnt say much but his philosophy on life and war and crime and the weather was frightfully intriguing.
