Great Northern Papercrafts Extravaganza

Had a great day yesterday I went to the Great Northern Papercrafts Extravaganza in Harrogate with my Mum and Sister. We have been going to this craft fair twice a year for years, and we love it. I was lucky enough thanks to my mother in law who sells my cards to have some extra money, so i went mad and spent a small fortune, but came home with loads of lovely goodies,

Hopefully I will have time today to try out my new stash, plus I would really like to enter some more challenges looks like i will be having a busy day
