CHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(I am not posting any product pictures, just the snapshots of the day) Okay, we had the best day! Kim, Lynn & I left my house at 6am Friday and drove up to Chicago. We spent the entire day searching for the best new scrapbooking stuff out there!! We got to make projects, try new things and meet LOTS of amazing people. First, Lynn hit it big with 7Gypsies. This company has Lynn written all over it, and she couldn't get enough! Then, my little piece of heaven was glowing over top of the displays.... Heidi Swapp! She had just had her baby, so she wasn't there :( We got to play with new stuff and got her cute lip gloss & gum balls! FUN, FUN, FUN. Kim found her excitement with a new company called October Afternoon. She is so excited to get to work with their new lines. As our day was winding down we "bumped" into a booth getting a lot of attention.-- of course we had to check it out!! It was Becky Higgins! (for those non-scrappers-- this is a major "celebrity") She has written 8 books, just finished her 9th book due out in September. I just had to stop and tell her how stinkin' cute her shirt was!! Then we all started mingling, talking, laughing and having a great time. Before we left we had spent about an hour with her, got three signed books (prior to release), got our pictures taken by her (she takes the best pics of people) and had a lasting memory! Thanks Becky & Creating Keepsakes! We were off to meet up with the rest of Scrapaganza. When we met off we went to ScrapInStyleTV.com's reception. We had food, drinks & prizes. Lynn, Kim & I stopped off at TwoPeas.com's reception and as you can guess Lynn won the drawing!! It was defiantly her lucky day! We were very lucky to get to talk with Kelly Crowe (a designer) After a fun stop at Maurices & Target we were headed home. We rolled back into our driveway about 12:30am! It was a LONG, tiring, but exciting, fun & very informational day! I can't wait to get all of the new stuff!!!!


4 friends had to say...:

I am jealous. It looks like you had a great time!
Are you saying that "pop beads" are coming back? Does that age me?
