A {countdown} lucky for someone!!

Excited??? OH YES WE ARE !!!!
Tim and Mario's amazing hard work they put into their kits was astonishing to watch via twitter. Did you see any of Mario's pics? Here's a summary..
 All the die cut goodies and bits and bobs getting collated
 Michelle hard at work bagging up at the final stages of this mega task! Always smiling!
 All this tissue tape just for you to use in class!!
 Ohh, there's a good sneaky peeky.....
 And trinkets, charms, games pieces, flowers....so much goodness from Tim's ideology range
It seemed to take them about 4 weeks plodding away, scoring, cutting, assembling, die-cutting and getting together LOADS of charms.

In Tim's words, 'this kick-ass class is the most loaded kit I have ever put together'! Well yes we are worthy as the UK have never been treated to a Tim class as awesome as this before!! We have waited for AGES for this and we can't wait!!
The organisation that has gone into this event from the USA crew, and our UK crew is immense. And you are going to have such a fab day with Tim,Lin and Leandra, that's it's certainly one you won't forget in a looong time!!

Here at the UK end we have got all the massive amount of stock priced up ready for the event, yummy ideology, Ranger products galore, and the PaperArtsy Elves have started pressing rubber flat out too this weekend.
Lin, Karen and Linda E have started the kitting up.New papers from PaperArtsy get chopped to size...Nearly 2000 pieces in total....
 Yummy ideology embellishments for our project.
One Sunday recently we taught our able helpers our project....they likey! Thank goodness for that....which means you should likely too as they can be very critical and very fussy - in the nicest possible way!!

Just in case you can't recognise them as it was bleary o'clock when we all got up for this day...Linda E, Essex Lynne (aka Cheryl {Cole}), Karen and Jo... of course Lin and I had the good sense to stay the other side of the camera on this occasion.
And here is one side of the ticket....

...and here's a surprise.....

We have got 5 tickets that were returned this week from 5 very sad ladies. Due to circumstances beyond their control they have all had to very reluctantly hand back their tickets so that some other lucky person can go instead.
I have listed them back on the PaperArtsy website here

There is:

1 space on Thursday 24th Feb 8.30 - 5pm class, and 
4 spaces on the Friday 25th Feb Class 8.30 - 5pm

If this is something you would like to come to, you will need to also buy yourself a lunch option at the same time as getting the ticket.

Good luck, and if we have more returns I will add them to the shopping cart, so keep checking back.
Have a fantastic week


PS We had a very exciting day yesterday....we have several new products releasing at the trade show here in the UK mid February, and yesterday we gave the go-ahead for something to be made just for us.

Your enthusiasm for this event reached all the way to the land of OZ, Kansas USA! I was so inspired by everything you guys were doing that I hopped on your website and purchased several of your lovely Paper Artsy stamps! Tim Holtz will be here in Kansas City in June, and I can't wait! But I wanted to tell you that I am just thrilled to have the opportunity to purchase your stamps, as I had recently seen some of them featured in the Dec/Jan 2010 issue of Stamper's Sampler. They made the cover of the magazine! I will be the envy of my stamp club!
I look forward to receiving my stamps and will continue to follow your wonderful blog! ~ReNae
