The Coo's Tail

Yup, as usual I'm the coo's tail, with my pics and news from the NEC.
Well, I'm sure you've seen all the pics from Kath and The Papeterie, so I'm going to share a couple of mine too. But before I do, the highlight of the trip for me just had to be meeting Mario, if you don't already know Mario is Tim Holtz's business manager and he's responsible for all the BTS (Behind The Scenes) tweets which give us a little insider info on the goings-on of Tim. And my claim to fame is that Mario follows me on twitter :)
So here's me getting my pic taken with Mario, and naughty Sir Tim trying to get in on the action lol
And the one that Kath took after she had ordered Tim out of the shot lol...
Mario very kindly took one of all of us with Tim too....

After our celeb spotting and cosying up with Mario and Tim we got down to the serious business of looking at all the scrumptious new goodies that will be coming to The Papeterie soon, and here are some things that caught my eye...


 This is one of the workshops we attended - loved the project, but the tutor in my opinion left a lot to be desired. We'd have got on better if she'd just given us a photo of the finished project and we'd figured it out ourselves...... oh yeh that's pretty much what she did!!
And these are the quick cards we made at the Spellbinders workshop - which was really fun, and check out the goodies we got ... 
 the new cut, fold and tuck dies
 Ooops, tied that ribbon a bit too tight :S
 Then as if I hadn't had enough excitement, I got home to this wee parcel......
 And inside was the very stamp set that Tim has been using to demo the new Distress Markers

Back tomorrow with some pics of yesterday's alcohol ink class
Thanks for visiting, 
I appreciate any comments

Thanks for the photos - I've already seen the ones Kath posted but you have some different ones. How did you manage to get a piccy of Kath? I thought she tried to hide in photos but there again she was next to Tim!

It certainly looks as if you all had great fun & thanks for all the pics. I've managed to earn enough pennies for my Distress Markers so they're on order.......... now must search out that stamp set (thanks for pic, I now know what I'm looking for).
