No card - just photo's from the NEC

Well I've managed to upload the photographs I took at the NEC and they've turned our better than usual.
I'm usually threatened with a fate worse than death if I publish them, but guess what - this year I decided I didn't care!! 

Photobucket

Here are my matey Tara (Happily Ever Crafting) and the lovely Kim (Cards by Kim

Photobucket

The fabulous Jo (Boots), the amazing Dena (Dena's Stamping Corner) who flew over from America and another fab teamie Chris (Sketching Stamper)

Photobucket

The adorable Tab (Tabby Craft Designs) and Kim, who as I pointed the camera at her turned pointed a finger at me and said "NO!!!" so I took it anyway LOL. 

Photobucket

Jo, me and Chris - being silly!! I said move in so she sort of did?

Me with the fabulous Dena whom I've known for ages and was over the moon to meet at last.

Photobucket

Jacqui (Cat's Whiskers) and Mina (Pink Puds).  I've never met Mina before although she's been an teamie for a couple of years. 
What do you think of this - a couple of minutes after meeting me she called me a "Daft Cow", made worse because everyone laughed - I think they agreed with her!! All because I said she looked taller in her photographs!!

Photobucket

Here we have another of my brilliant Basic Grey teamies  Kim (Paperbabe) along with Andie of (Andie's Space) who I haven't met before but really hope to meet again.





I didn't get photographs of everyone I met but all I can say is I had a brilliant day and meeting up with you all (both again and for the first time) is what made it so special - thank you all - love you loads!! 


Now I'm going to try and catch up with my DT commenting - I have grabbed my grandson's laptop and have 3 hours (uninterupted I hope) to get it done and hopefully it will ease the frustration of not being able to craft.

Wilma said...

Good to see the pics Heather - makes me even more annoyed at not making it - always next year !:) xx

Chris said...

AAaaaaagggghhhh!!!! I can't believe you didn't delete that photo, you're so naughty :D. They're all brilliant and it's so good to get the natural shots instead of the posed ones. Thanks for making the day so special Heather it was brilliant to see you again. Although I might not be taller than my photograph in real life.... I'm certainly wider but I don't think that's the camera :D. Big hugs, Chris xxx
