Ally Pally and a Grungepaper Rose

Yesterday I went to Ally Pally and got myself a few gorgeous crafty treats, as you do....
But the best, most wonderful thing about yesterday was without doubt meeting up with sooo many fabulous blog friends, Hello Girls!!! It's a day we will never forget we had a blast and Definitely intend on meeting up again, at Birmingham in November....

Jo, Marlene, Chris, Caz, me & Kim

Thank you to sweet, sweet Jo for the wonderful pictures... although I could have done practicing some poses before hand ROTFL!!!
So... I could show you what I bought but instead I'm showing what I made today with a few of my goodies...

WOW when I first set eyes on this grungepaper rose I knew I had to try it, "gorgeous" just doesn't cut it... the finished flower is still so tactile in your hands. I think I might just get a little addicted to them, so be warned there will probably be a few popping up in the next few posts LOL!
Thanks for stopping by and I will be showing my final DT card for ICSketches tomorrow :( until then HuGs Kim :)

Hi hun!
I really love that flower you did and how you outlined the edges. I could eat it as is if it were a candy! Hahaha.
Kisses to the kiddos. Take care!

Vicky said...

I so wish I could have been there Kim and have had a chat with Jo this afternoon to catch up on all the juicy gossip! I'm really looking forward to meeting you at Birmingham ;o)
That rose is amazing!!!!!!!!!

Hugs, Kelly

Katy said...

Gorgeous rose Kim love it!!! :)

Looks like you had a fabulous time at Ally Pally!


Chris said...

Well....didn't we have a loverly time and you can see that we did from these photos, it really was the best and I can't wait to do it again :). Choccy cake and everything, perfect! Your rose is amazing as I knew it would be, I'm the one at home wishing I'd got that set of stamps, ROFL. I had to do mine with a nine petal flower, it just doesn't work the same and I had to use a die cut so I couldn't use the grunge paper either but I will get there and I do like what I ended up with, I'm just about to blog it. Fantastic photo's of your roses too, I like them almost as much as your chocolate cake :). Chris xx

Amy said...

Kim Dellow said...

It was just the best time ever! I loved meeting you and eating that yummy choccy cake - so want that recipe, yeah but I will never be able to make it so good! Grogeous flower - that stamp set is fab! Kimx

Hi Kim,

Wasn't it a fun day?? I so enjoyed meeting all of you and am still buzzing from it all today now!

Thanks to you showing me the tutorial I had to order another of those stampsets, as i didn't get that one.. typical!
Your roses look stunning, were they as addictive to do as she said on her blog?

Hope to meet up again in Birmingham too, will have to make it a big date!!! lol

Have a great day,
Marlene x
