Scrapbook Convention

I headed into the Scrapbook Convention on Saturday and was it busy?
So many people there!!

I caught up with plenty of Scrap friends...Let's see if I can remember them all??
Manda and Danah, Maz, Mel, Sara, Ali, Lisa, Bel  and Cindy. I caught up with Lou, which was great and I finally got to meet the lovely Lynette Van Barrelo. What a crack up she is??
I did take some photos with Lou and Lynette but mine aren't the best. The lighting is all wrong in the Convention centre. I might have to get them to send me one and then I'll share!!

My shopping partner for the day was my good buddy Maz.
As scrappers, we are so alike and like a lot of the same things, like colour, papers and embellishments...it's very weird?? Almost creepy!! LOL


I did miss shopping with my dear friend Leanne.
She was unable to come due to illness, but she's on the mend now.
Leanne was scheduled to speak for Scrapbooking Memories in their workshop area, as she is a current Master and very talented scrapper!!
I missed you, Leanne along with many others!!

So, yesterday I was busting to use some new stash and did the Kraft it Up Challenge for June.
Scrapping a minimalist layout...so not me, but I gave it a crack!!
Quite like it too.
The pic was taken by Mel at Point Shoot Play!
I used a new embellishment I bought at the Convention too...the red star...it's made from pressed felt...very cool!


I hope you had a great long weekend!

Chat soon,

The Expo was good, wasn't it. I enjoyed it on Monday. Sorry I missed you and Maz. Your layout looks really good - love the star and look how much Zac has grown in that shot!

Oooh, love the layout Chelle! You might be giving Leanne a run for her money in the "clean & simple" stakes, LOL. Such a handsome young man your Zac is now!

I can't believe that the style is 'so not you'. It's fantastic. :)
