I Am Never Prepared.....

For the past 3 years my cousin Summer and I have attended the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention.
Go check out the site.....if it's coming to your area.....I highly suggest you go....if paper is your thing.
We always have the best time spending oodles of money and giving each other a hard time for doing so.
Look .... just look.
By the time it rolls around each year I forget just how good it is....I am never prepared when I first see this room.
Summer peeked in an upstairs room where a lady was eating her lunch to ask if we could get a bird's eye view....she informed us that the room we were in was where they watched for scrap lifters of the criminal kind.
This photo is only a part of the vendor floor.
It's truly amazing....if you are a paper geek.
Summer trying to make a decision....well you know what I it all.

Rusty Pickle's of my faves.
A little Halloween bouquet at the Cricut booth.
While this is a photo of Summer...its really not...its actually Summer and I proving that MEN do go to scrapbook conventions.....more men there this year than any year previously.....are men getting into paper crafts other than carefully folding back the sports page for optimal reading of that article way up in the corner.

oodles and oodles of chipboard books at Rusty Pickle....I know some of you who would have loved to get your hands on these deals.

Yummy...Skinny Cow was there giving away treats.....but first read the napkin.
I bought myself a box of these don't be surprised if you see some Skinny Cow drip embellishments at JaneSays (wink)

Skinny Dippers...they are really good...I prefer the carmel .
I thought about showing you all my new goods....but I don't want to give too much away.
Keep and eye on JaneSays !!!
Oh yea...and Summer completely gave me her permission to put her face on my know how I am about that.
have a happy day

Pin It!
