Once again I find myself blogging in arrears i.e. no postings since the beginning of the year. Memo to self - PULL YOUR SOCKS UP LESLEY!!

However, it's getting to that time of year again; the Trade show looms large on the horizon followed by a list of craft shows as long as your arm (from Glasgow to Farnborough and quite a few points in between!) So, with this in mind I hope to see some of you, somewhere in the country, sometime during the next few weeks. You'll soon recognise me, just look for the stand where the demonstrator is half asleep (apparently I also snore so there's another good pointer in my direction!). Seriously, I have a load of prep to do for all sorts of things and so blogging may take a back seat yet again. In the meantime, what with the dreadful weather, the credit crunch and any other horrid thing you can think of, I thought you might need cheering up. So here, designed especially for you, is a paper that you can use for Valentines day, weddings, anniversaries, just about anything really.

If you would like the freebie, just click on this link, download and save to your computer, then just print and play. If your printer will allow it has been designed to print borderless. Enjoy.

See you on the road.

That is a truly delicious freebie. I love plumerias so thank you muchly for that. I'm sure I'll bump into you a few times on the road as I'm a craft show junkie. Are you demonstrating with Barbara again?

I'm right behind Jo, almost literally. Pure accident that I've followed my crafting buddy onto your blog but we will both be visiting one or two craft shows together so we'll definitely see you.

Thank you very much for the gorgeous freebie. It's absolutely beautiful.

Thank you for the freebie, it's beautiful.
May be you wouldn't mind telling me how you include the download link for such things in your blog. I, in my simple way, have created some backing papers and would like to share.
Thanks, Maggie

Thanks Lesley! The paper is lovely!

Jo and I only get to the Gateshead show and I've not seen you there before. Do you not get to that one?

Anyhoo, see you at the next Graphicus Open Day and see what techniques you can teach me this time. Pressure's on now!!!!

Hi Lesley, just wanted to say it was a pleasure to meet you at the SECC today, sure I missed saying hi to Barbara, but I am glad I had the chance to say hello to you instead. Those crafters who didn't hang around when they realised Barbara was not there are the ones who missed out!
