Santa Clara Convention ~ Expo

It's that time again, one of my favorite times of the year, actually, twice a year! The Scrapbooking Expo! If you've never gone, you have to go experience it at least just once! I usually get into trouble, and I mean trouble with all the money I spend on my scrappy goodies. I can go crazy and usually do. This time, I am on a hunt. I recently pulled out my "Big Shot" and dies. The have a big booth filled with all the cutting systems and dies to go with them.............so much fun looking at all they carry!

I think the most fun I have is bumping into friends that I haven't seen in a while, we stop, hug, start talking, hug again, and off we go. I usually loose my friends and go looking around on my own. (they're use to me) Then through the day, I'll meet back up with them, we'll go eat, and go back to looking around and loosing each other again. I find that alot of it is the same, but every once in a while, one booth will have some really cool "findings". Ah ~ wouldn't it be nice to see some of the new releases from CHA. And sometimes they do get things in time for these shows.

HAPPY WEEKEND TO YOU LADIES AND GENTS OUT THERE! I never really show what I buy, but if I come back with something cool, I will share it with you!

My next big event/outting, "ROAD TRIP" ~ is CAMP CROP, Sonora, CA. We go every year, twice a year. Go back to some of my older posts and you'll see the big yellow country house where I stay in my P.J.'s for 4 days, to scrap, eat, nap, go into town, scrap, eat somemore and take another nap. I must gain 10 lbs. on every trip to Sonora! After all, who eats three full meals a day~ NOT ME. These 4 days are so relaxing!

Gotta go and get in bed or I won't be able to get up early. Arlene,Marie and Bona, if you're reading this, I'll look for you to say hello and give hugs! Be safe driving To Expo!
