Mad for Markers at Paperific and our new challenge

Hi all

Hope you are all well, we had a FANTASTIC time at Paperific on our Mad for Markers Stall, wonderful to meet up with Sammi again.  Met her lovely DH Guy (chief till operator) finally met the gorgeous Tracey off our DT, along with Chris and Cassandra (both M4M DT girls) and our two of our April GD's Honor and Ashlee.  Also got to meet in person Marcia (originally The Stamp Spot) along with the gorgeous Debbie P shopping with Kellie and Kristy.

 First thing Friday, Tracey, Sammi and Guy

Tracey, Sammi, Me and Guy (Friday's crew) Emma stopped by too (sorry Em haven't got your pick)

The lovely Cassie and Honor

Mary, Sammi, Marcia, Tracey, Me and Rosanna (Saturday's crew with our visitor Marcia)

Rosanna drawing in the crowds, Queen Spica seller, she had a ball, so proud of her, even did demos with the air compressor

Thank you Sammi, love this photo (Rosanna looking longingly at the Spica Pens), don't think there are many we don't have lol!

My photo with Debbie P didn't turn out too wellX:(  Hopefully Sammi has one

Whilst at the show I got to play I mean demonstrate the air compressor (don't have one yet lol).  It was great fun spraying dollies and chipboard, here are some samples

Sprayed with a colour then sprayed spica to get the added sparkle
