Good Evening Crafty Friends,
Hope you have been enjoying your weekend. Hard to believe it is almost over. I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about the Scrapbook Expo ~ Orlando.
The day started off bright and early. I left the house around 6:15 am and got to Orlando by 7:45 am. I used the GPS since I thought it was suppose to take the quickest route, but yesterday Garmin went the scenic way. Next year I am going my way!
I checked in early and received a Golden Ticket for a door prize (didn't win) and then walked around the resort until the floor opened at 9 am. The Expo was at Gaylord Palms and it is beautiful place. If you have the opportunity to go next year, stay for the night. I wish I could have.
Here are my Expo goodies...
Some of the items purchased include...
pearls and gems
2 SEI 6x6 paper stacks ~ Cherry Brights and On the Coast
lace (pink and blue)
mini album kit
Some of the freebies...
Dot -n- Go
window frame laser cut
I was a volunteer at the Will Call window from 11 - 3. I actually got paid too, which was very nice (and they gave me a free ticket for another Expo). Then I was a Teacher's Pet at 3:30 for an hour class, Great Gift Cards with Andrea Deer. I paid $5 for the class (Expo price was about $25) and got all the materials to take home. Can't wait to make them!
Needless to say, I had a good time. I plan on going back next year and volunteer again. If you have the chance to help at your Scrapbook Expo be sure to sign up. It is definitely worth it!
