Fun and Games

Hello everyone and it really has been lots of fun getting ready for the Scor-Pal show on Create and Craft show last Monday and wasnt Karen fantastic for her first time on the telly.
The show was such a success that they have asked us for more Scor-Pals and are now re running the programme again over the next week so dont delay get your Scor-Pal today you really will understand why its the best scoring board out there.
Here are some pics of the samples we took with us for the show and every one has been made using the Scor-Pal and Graphic 45 papers.

We are now busy getting all the samples ready for our next show which will introduce you to the CottageCutz dies which work on all of the popular machines such as the Wizard,cuttlebug and sizzix big shot.
These dies are really detailed and although they dont emboss the cut lines give a three dimensional look to your cards and scrapbook layouts so pleae dont miss the demos and the fantastic dies we are taking on.

We have had a little visitor staying with us for the last week and he still has a wnother week with us.
His name is Bob and hes a three month old cockapoo and Harrys best friend.
He is no trouble and has settled down nicely and has even been for two dips in both our ponds (i dont think the frogs toads and newts were very happy though.
Heres a piccy of the two lads in the garden.

I think Harry will be quite upset when Bob has to go home and so will we.

I have some dates for workshops at the shop coming up for the end ofMay and June and i will be putting those on here tomorrow.
I am going to finish off my pasta disaster dish now for when Gordon gets home from the papercraft show at Port Sunny and both the boys are fast asleep after their fun and games in the garden.
See you all tomorrow.
Smiles Rob Gordon Harry and Bob xxxx
