Scrapbook Tuesday, Playground Outing to Ally Pally - Scrapportunity Knocks

Hello Peeps

As some of you may be aware, some of us scallywags from the Playground had a get together at the Big Stamp and Scrapbook Show in London on Saturday.  So instead of my more usual scrapbook layout today, I thought I would share some photographs with you of mine and Fergus' day out to London.....

Fergus trying to catch up on some sleep.  It was very very early (6 am train).
I had these in my bag for my friends that I was meeting, for us all to put our WOYWW badges on to.  I tried to match them to each recipient!

I managed to catch a glimpse of the blue sky that had followed me from Wales, whilst I was waiting.  It was tipping it down with wet stuff when  we came out.

Some more of the lovely court.  You should have seen the queues just minutes before.

Fergus getting some big ideas!
It took three goes to get a good photo as someone was being a little mischievous and it wasn't me!
See what I mean!

Tee Hee! See Teacher is in between us all.  What you cannot see is the invisible reins she had us all in an attempt to keep us under control!

And proof, that Sandra DOES buy ribbon!!  Had to be quick to get this photo for you, I can tell you!  Question is, when will Sandra actually use it?

Well, I hope you like my happy memories of a wonderful day.  I also bumped into Delores and had a hug which was very nice.  

I think I will have a Scrapbook layout coming up very soon.  Thanks to you buddies for making it a great day in London.  Unfortunately/fortunately, I have put all my goodies away in their new homes before I took a photo so I cannot show you my stash, but I will let you know what I bought as and when I use it!

Awwwww...that is just so nice! Naughty girls included...Sarn was just expressing herself...as the modern teachers would say! teehee

Can't wait to see what you all got...sooner or later it will make it onto the blog.

Such a shame I couldn't make it, looks like fun. Just because there is no photographic evidence of the mass of new stash does not mean the money wasn't spent (bet you got some lovely stash)! ;-) I look forward to seeing your new makes.

I can certainly vouch that money was spent and you're have to pay me dearly not to squeal just how much ;)

Great photos that captured a great day!

Big hugs xx

Yes, I can imagine Di needed reins to keep you all under control, you look like a mischievous lot. I'm glad you had a great day through, it looks a beautiful place. Fancy not sharing what you bought through, was there THAT much!!
Hope you are having a good week.
Hugs Lisax

Brilliant photos Sam - of a wonderful day! So pleased you took some of the surroundings, it's a beautiful building.

Naughty Sarn - but so typically Playground :) Hmm, wonder when we'll see the ribbon in use - it looked so yummy I have visions of Sarn stroking it for a while first. Bit like you with those delicious 12" papers!

Like you, I've put my haul away too - and have also eaten the receipts :))

Thank you again for the lovely flower - Dumbo here didn't realise it was for WOYWW badge. That's now rectified and little Angus on my desk is sporting it smartly on his collar once again - very clever idea, and of course it's pink :)

Been playing with the pokey tool - I adore it!! My plain old very thick one didn't have the 'stop' and many a time I've shot right through a piece of card! It will be well used and much loved - thank you again. That's twice you've pulled that trick, sneaking off and buying something I like for me - ha, next time I keep zipper on mouth closed :))

Hugs, Di xxx

Can't believe I didn't come across you with this group... lol!!

Sandra (Stamping For Pleasure) said...

All I bought was that ribbon! NOT!

Such a wonderful day . . . thanks to you all. Happy memories made to cherish. Oh look . . . I've gone all poetic now!

Big Hugs

It looks like you all had a fun time....I bet Di had to watch you like hawks to make sure you all behaved though :-)
Hugs,

There will be detention for Sarn this week.
Looks a lovely time was had by all.

Queenie Jeannie said...

Looks like you were all having a marvelous time!!! How fun to spend the day with crafty friends!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Thank you so much for the photo journal of your fun outing, Sam! I'm so, so green with envy that I couldn't be with you, and the shopping would have been grand, too!!

Looks like such a great day out... hope I can make it along next time around!

All I'm saying is it wasn't me fault the thingy fell of the wall in the loo or that I had to stand in the sink to shove the cover back on and use yards and yards of double sided tape on it!!! Should see wot I can manage to do with a coffee drinks dispenser machine. Nedless to say I have not been allowed back in that particular office. Hugs Mrs A.
