I will update and post pictures as the weekend progresses...
Deciding what pictures to bring to scrapbook...agonizing!
I chose a trip to Israel with over 300 photos already organized into places visited.
Next...packing only supplies for one album. Well...
absolutely everything I might possibly want in said album:)
Learning patience while being stranded and delayed
almost 2 hours from start to finish with a flat tire only 30 miles from home!
Finally arriving in the Dallas area to visit, cuddle, kiss, and play with 3 of my
grandbabies for 2 glorious days before the event
Our first event at the Expo..a Mega Make and Take crop
...my favorite project by Heidi Swapp
Seriously need one of these Canon Selphy printers...
Printed wirelessly straight from my phone!
My sister is actually cleaning out her purse...really?
Is that the best you can do at a make and take crop?
On day two of the Expo I was so busy shopping and scrapping I forgot to take many pictures!
I began the morning with banana pudding
since we had no microwave to have the oatmeal I brought... I wasn't too sad:)
My sister, Mitzi and I filmed our first sister video today
for Scrapbook Weekly. We told the funny story of my hubby telling her hubby that
scrapbooking was a nice cheap hobby...hahaha! Will share the video when it airs!
This is my most favorite display project in the entire convention!
I bought the paint kit to create these fabulous metal patina effects.
Those are real keys on the heart-brilliant!
Scrapbooking conventions are a wonderful way to meet new friends! We shared a shared a table with Sue and Kay for the weekend. We are now planning a retreat together!
The final night of the event was Willie Wonka crop. Some groups put forth an unbelievable amount of effort into their table display. I really loved this "cake" made by an interior designer!
I gave up on my Israel album after the first day. I need to put it together when my hubby is around so he can help make sure I get the tours in the right order. That is what comes from scrapbooking a few years after the actual event!
These are some of our pages we put together at the convention...
Mitzi worked on her wedding album, circa 1990
I plan on making this an annual event with a loved one or two!
Have a look at my posts about our trip here last year...
