Hi there. I have been waiting for this weekend to happen for a long time now. Why? Well this is the weekend that the Stamp Scrap Art Tour makes a stop near me. The first couple years I went, I just went to the trade show/convention part of the show. There are all sorts of fun companies to buy direct from, as well as a booth from my Local Stamp Store. Last year, when we were looking for ticket info, I learned that they also have classes on Friday. So, for the last 2 years, my mom and I have attended the Make and Take Dessert Party on Friday night. It really is a great deal, and a lot of fun! For $25, you get to make 8-9 different projects , and eat some super yummy desserts. I wanted to share with you a glimpse of what I got to create last night.
As you can see, we made 9 different projects last night. We made 7 cards, 1 paper basket, and 1 4"x4" scrapbook. Sorry the basket isn't totally finished yet, but we only had so much time at each table, and I didn't get to finish. Of course it didn't help that I was getting sicker by the minute while I was there. I felt kinda blah all day Friday, but by the time the make and take party was over, I was just plain sick! I guess I got whatever my girls had earlier this week. Well, today I HAD to go to the convention...because it only comes once a year. So off we went to shop. Lets just say...I did a fairly good amount of shopping...lol. Between myself, my mom, and my 7 year old...we brought home a pretty good amount of stuff. I think my "happiest" purchase is my new ribbon organizing system. I can't wait to share it with you. I am hoping to get it all organized tonight...since all I can do is sit in my chair and watch TV....ha ha. I was hoping to be able to use some of my new stuff tonight, but I just don't' have the strength to go down to my stamp room. Well, thanks for stopping by...and don't forget to check out the Stamp Scrap Art Tour website, and see if they are coming to your town/area. If not this year, then next season. It is soooo worth it!
