What a blast.......

When was it and Where Was it

Scrapbook Expo Duluth
July 15-16, 2016

Gwinnett Center
 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway
 Duluth, Georgia 30097, United States

If you have never been you have got to go.

Events and Activities we did

First off we did the 

MAKE & TAKE on Thursday Night.
5:00 Pm to Midnight.
Cost was $45.00

But wait don't trip out.  Look what we made

The one on the right is what I did.  I still want to do more to it.


The one on the right is mine

Mine is below

On the following I didn't get pics yet of mine. 
 Will add them as I finish some and as I take pics of all.

Couple Picture of others in the room

We also played Bingo and Won Prizes.  Lots of Prizes.  I unfortunately didn't win anything.  And because of our Hotel Room giving us a hard time we had to leave at 9:45 to check into our hotel by 10:00 pm.  Oh and should I mention we paid for this back in May.  They said if we didn't arrive by 10 they could not hold our room.  Never stay in the following Hotel.  

Extended Stay America
Will tell you that story in my next post.

we got up super early to be there in time for the Early Bird Sales.  
Which sadly we still were not early enough for.  But We shopped and shopped.

First I hit....

They have great eyelets I have bought for years.
But at the convention they have some on sale for $1.50 each.  Some $3.00 each.

My Favorite ones

Aren't these just so cute.

Then I learned something from his store.
Here is an idea I never thought of.  Take an Eyelet then add a brad.
They took a Leaf Eyelet and added a Lady Bug Brad


Our Next Class 
was on Friday

In this class we learned how to use a quelling tool to curl create beautiful 
dimensional flowers.  We also received a step by step color instructions to
help guide us along with our instructor.

We also received a coupon for a Cling Stamp Set of our choice
redeemable at there booth.  ($19.99 Value)

Then they had a drawing for a $40.00 door Prize.

I will say they didn't allow enough time to do these flowers and cards.  So most of my flowers still need to be finished and added to the cards that we put together.  

They supply everything to make the cards except for your scissors and dimensional dots.

I"m going to post this and add more later.  I'm afraid of losing 
what i have done so far.  So Come back soon

My Latest Card Creations

I made 16 of these for a Stamp Convention. Stamps are from 

Wanted to see what the same card would look like in Purple and Lime Green.  I think it came out pretty good.  What do you think?

This one I added Dimension to the pot and the cactus's in the middle.  
I want to make it look like there is 4 in the pot.

All Reviews For past Years

I'm making this page each year and maybe even Monthly to show what went on each year.

Why click on these links.  Well it is short and to the point with pics.  Why scroll down all the posts trying to figure what you want to see when you can scroll down and see a brief pic and get a better idea if you want to read that post or not.
