Scrapbook Expo Update

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
holiday stamps

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!

Stay Creative,
