While there, we kept running into these fabulous older ladies that seemed to be our future selves. One being a lot like me and the other like my friend. After we had run into them about three times, visiting, laughing, and talking about our similarities I asked them what their names were. WELL, they were Lisa and Karen! You might not find that very interesting; however, I haven't mentioned that my friend's name is Carrie. So, we were Laurie and Carrie and Lisa and Karen and yes, I was like Lisa and she like Karen. It was so funny! I love how small the world can seem. I hope we run into them again.
Here are some of pictures of all my loot!
I found some really neat stuff at Technique Tuesday's booth. I had never heard of them before. They have some really cute stamp sets and scrapbooking kits that come with stamps, inks, paper, chipboards, rub ons. Their prices seemed reasonable, too. I wish I could have bought more there! We found acrylic die cuts that were on sale. And some JustRite fonts on sale too!
I got a kit that came with a glue pad, some stamps, glitter, felt, a punch that matched one of the stamps. I haven't even opened it, but it seemed like a good deal at the time!! Creating Keepsakes had a booth right outside the entryway. They had some super deals I couldn't pass up. A complete scrapbook and kit to complete it for only $11 and a vacation mini scrapbook kit for only $5. I kept waiting to hear the catch, like I had to sign up for something but no catch. I also got there a pack of 12 fold out books. These I plan to use as gifts. And no trip is complete without a few stickles!!!
Here is a picture of a canvas kit make & take I did at the Quick Quotes booth and then bought one to do at home. I also bought some of their paper packs - in the first picture somewhere! They had some really neat things and a monthly kit club that I am thinking about joining.
It was a great trip! Not quite CHA, but big enough for me - at least for now!
