I got some feedback on the scrap boards about what to expect and was a little torn about whether or not it'd be worth it after all my expectations and waiting, but we went anyway.
We got there about 9:30. I was expecting to have to fight crowds, but that wasn't the case. Found parking fairly easy. Wasn't too much of a line to purchase tickets to get into the faire. We even got free admission for Steve; hubbies were free;) and I used a coupon and got in for $7 instead of $10:)
I must confess that the actual faire was NOT what I'd anticipated. It was a lot like the convention we did in Austin a couple of years back. It was still fun and I did get some things I wanted. Managed to spend about $80. We were there about 2 hours and then we left and hit up some stores around there before heading back home.
After doing these 2 events, I really don't think I'd go again...unless Lal came with me. Then maybe;) It's just not the same when you don't have another scrapper to keep you company:)
Here is a pic of my purchases along with some things I picked up at HL...
Today we actually got some rain again. Pretty much all day. It cleared up in the afternoon as was actually cool when I went to pick up V. Today was Picture Day. Got some shots of V out front...
I stayed home all day today and got some scrapping done. So did Lal. We had some what of a cyber crop. We are planning to get together on Friday and see what we can get done. No big expectations since it's kind of short notice. Probably just get a couple LOs done, get something to eat, do a little bit of shopping and hang out. It's been a while since we did that. We didn't get to do our Scrapapalooza Trilogy while Miguel was on vaca cause poor little Mikey got sick.
So here's what I got done today. This puts me at 106 LOs, I believe...
All Sass; Bungle Jungle and Anthem on kraft paper. Sass and Chatterbox chip "9"s and a Jillibean Sprout and Sass Happy Place alpha stickers.
Lift off 2Peas. The kids on the day we celebrated V's birthday. Cosmo Cricket Early Bird on kraft. STILL loving the kraft background. Cricut cut title using my Graphically Speaking cart. K&Co. diecut jouranling tag and a sticky note I got in M's $1 bins a while back.
Time for bed. Hoping to get a couple more LOs done tomorrow as I don't plan on leaving the house;) Night all:)
