A spend is coming on!

Good Morning to all and a special 'Hello' to my new followers, I haven't been able to pop over to visit you all yet but I will.
This weekend is the Harrogate papercraft show and I will be going on Sunday, yeah!  all being well and nothing pops up to stop me. I go with another crafty friend and we  booked in to have a class with Stephanie Weightman but unfortunately it was cancelled so we have been moved into a class with Ali who will be working with pan pastels and stamping so that should be interesting as I haven't worked with pan pastels and I know quite a few of you do. (please don't let me like them, I don't think my loft floor can stand any more weight, I'll be coming through the bedroom ceiling!)
If any of you will be there it would be lovely of you to say Hi.
I am going to make a list beforehand and stick to it,  hee hee, not.
I have checked through my LOTV stamps to see what I need and I have 80 of their stamps as well as most of the sentiments,  omg, is that all...........!
I'll let you know what I purchase.
Well it's time for anotherTotally Papercrafts  challenge and this week it's the turn of the lovely Susan to host and she has chosen
