Final Scrapfest Pics

Here is the last of the ScrapFest 2009 pictures, these pics are of the classes I took as well as the crops I attended.

First Picture is the freebies I received from the Archiver's bags from the crops. Have to say this year wasn't as good as the last, but I'm still happy with the items, I'll definitely use them up!

Sorry this next picture is vertical instead of horizontal~ I couldn't fix it. These are some of the layouts that were at the Make and Take booths, the bottom is Me and My Big Ideas, the one in the top was Bazzill. The middle one is Creativity Inc. they have the coolest BIG brad's ever!!

Here's a pic of the Bo Bunny layout from the Crop Saturday night "Crop around town", in the Rotunda of the Mega Mall. We had some excitement that night, one of the ladies was hit on the head by flying debree~ some punk kids at the mall were throwing stuff overboard. So uncalled for!
Fiskars/My Minds Eye Class Layout~ this was an adorable layout~ Too bad I didn't get to finish mine yet, I wanted to wait until I got home, very cool punches used for these as well as the adorable paper~ LOVE My Minds Eye!!

Quikutz/American Crafts- Here was the project from the Quikutz team, the tool is so cool! Wish I had this but it's a big investment with all of the dies you would have to buy. Very cool idea though to use these sleeves, very quick and easy way to scrapbook! Love it!!

DCWV- Class- I didn't layout all of these pages, but there were a ton of extra's in these kits, such great layouts and ideas~ very easy to put together. The papers are adorable!!

Last but certainly not least~ LYB (Little Yellow Bicycle) This was the Friday night crop around town and it was in Woodbury, MN. (about 20 min from the mall). They by far had the best product and certainly generous giving us as much as they did! Love these guys!!! They spent a few minutes telling us all about how they get their product on the shelves and it's just an amazing process! MY DREAM JOB!!! Anyhow, they gave us these really cool bags along with a T-Shirt and their Halloween/Fall/Thanksgiving kits with lots of extras!! Absolutely tremendous job on the package provided!! VERY HAPPY GIRL HERE!!

Here's some pics of my sis and I and my sis and Karen at the Woodbury- LYB crop! So much fun with these two ladies!!

Well, that's all on the ScrapFest trip! Next up~ Halloween goodies!

Check in again soon!

More Scrapfest

Finally getting time to download the pictures from Scrapfest, still going through all of the stuff I scored as well! Lots of freebies and make and takes that I just adore. I'm working on a Halloween display this week, I'll post more on that later!

Adorable stuff at the Doodlebug Booth~ love their new chunky glitter, it is to die for, I want one of every color! Look at this very cute Trick or Treat layout they had on display, they have some awesome product!

This was one of Cosmo Cricket's idea's on display, how stinkin cute is this Halloween mirror, I bought a bunch of those mirrors at a garage sale this summer for 50 cents each and I'm going to be making some of those this week for my Halloween display! Can you say adorable?

This was one of Little Yellow Bicycle's ideas, an advent shadow box for Christmas. They were so generous at their make and take booth and at the crop that we attended Friday night! They ROCK!! It was very cool to learn how their product makes it to the shelves also!

Here's a pic of the Bo Bunny girls from the Saturday night crop, they are soooo much fun! Got to meet Julia Sandvoss (far right) she runs the Bo Bunny blog and coordinates the design team, such a great person, so down to earth, she is so talented!

Mega Mall Fun:

My sister and Karen just arriving at Scrapfest, waiting in line to check in.

Our first snack, Cinnabon of course! God that 1100 calories was the best eva! Too bad we had to have a jerk working there! First bad experience of the weekend! Nuts! No you can have no Nuts! (guess you had to be there!)

Ok, who knew there was an American Girl store at the Mega Mall! Not me, but I keep saying my girls are too young for those dolls~ not anymore, oh my I need to keep them and myself away from that place! Everything is so darn cute and you have to have an outfit to match the dolls! They even have a beauty salon where your doll can get there hair done! I walked away without a doll for every occasion, thank you lord!

Well, I have a ton more pics to post, so look for more tomorrow!

Back in Town

Well, it was a lovely weekend away at Scrapfest! I have tons of photos of all the great projects that were available. There were lots of people there this year and it was hard to get through all the make and take booths, but I'll post the pics of those that I was able to get to. There was sooooo many cute things, I tried to not purchase much because of the overwhelming stock of scrapbook supplies I have currently. I did pick up a few adorable things though! Stay tuned... I'll be posting more tomorrow!

Getting ready for Scrapfest!!!

Well, the time has finally come! Scrapfest 2009 at the Mall of America in Minneapolis this weekend! Last year was my first year at Scrapfest and I met some amazing people and came away with so many ideas! If you've never been you're missing out so if you can't make it this year, put it on your calendar for next year, it's such a fun time! My sister and I are going with a our friends Kelly and Karen. I'm taking only 2 classes this year, it was really hard getting into the classes that I wanted. I'm so bummed on a couple I couldn't get into. We are also going to 2 crops, the Little Yellow Bicycle on Friday night and the Bo Bunny crop on Saturday night!!! I can't even tell you how excited I am! We went to the Bo Bunny crop last year and it was the best time ever!! I'm working on t-shirts and I hope to get them done for the crew! I came up with a theme last year that I haven't been able to get out of my head, it may rub off and be on etsy after this trip! We'll see!

I just finished up my Christmas projects for one of my client's and am moving on to some baby gifts for a few friends of mine! I love doing baby projects and I have the perfect stamp and new little pom ribbons that are to die for that I'm going to incorporate!

I'll post as soon as they're finished, until then Happy Scrapping!
