Yayy the sun came out today which always puts everyone in a great mood. We started our day the American way, with breakfast in Denny's diner. There is every combination of breakfast you can think of. I went simple with scrambled, bacon and hash browns. 

Ben is trying out new things so ordered a classic, but I dont think he had reckoned on the pancakes, lol.

At the Ranger booth everyone was busy putting up samples, but Patti found 5 mins to show me her decorated apron,with the famous Patti splat..!!! Cool..!!!

Heres some of the displays

Claudines Studio line.

Perfect Pearls


These are Tim' new dies from Sissix

His fabulous new how to book

My favourites of his new Idea-ology are the box feet, the locket keys and the clock faces


The fabulous guest designer wall. The theme this year was "The winning ticket"

This was my favourite. It's Linda of LB crafts

Heres Wendy having a quick rest.

and heres Tim opening his latest new toy. It is going to gallop out of the door when it is finally released, no doubt about it. I can,t let you see any pics till tomorrow, but just look at his face.
