Sorry for not posting on Friday ...

I have no excuse other then my every day life got in the way. I normally only work during the morning and afternoon school bus times (I answer the phones and two way radio now that I cannot drive my bus) but on Tuesday and Friday this week I worked all day. That shouldn't account for much but it does tend to mess up my routine. Lately ... it doesn't take much to mess me up!LOL
On Saturday my sil Amanda (loved spending time with you, lady!) and I went to Scrapfest in Kitchener ... WOW!!! The auditorium was packed with venders and scrappers! There were lineups for the make & take chairs at all of the booths that had make & takes, there were lineups to pay for your purchases, there were lineups for the ATM's ... but we did manage a make & take at the GO Scrapping Studio. They only were allowing 24 people at a time, but did have a list of times and what each make & take would be. We chose our make & take and made sure we were there before they had handed out all of the numbers. We got to make a 12x12 layout offered by "In a Pinch Designs". It was fun, lovely and so easy. I love it! Especially when I got home and had the perfect picture on hand for it. I don't do 1 picture layouts very often and have done layouts with just dh and I even less often. This is special to me.
Nothing is SU and I don't remember if we were told the brands or not.
I love how we cut out small details from scrap paper, popped them up on dimensionals for definition and used no other embellishments. Simple!
I promise I'll have more projects later this week. I'm working at finishing up a couple of things for Wednesday and I'll have to use some new things I got at Scrapfest!

That sounds like great fun! I've never been to anything huge like that, not even convention sadly :(
Don't fell bad about missing a post, life gets busy.

You know I never thought about cutting out and popping up like that. I willhave to try that sometime. Very nice job.

Conventions are a fun time to learn some new ideas and get re-inspired! I'm glad you had a fun time!

Great ideas, and such a cute layout.

How fun! I'm jealous...I would love to go to one sometime. At least I've made Regionals twice (AND LOVED IT!) So inspiring. Love the page.

Sounds like fun! I don't get information about these kinds of things - do I have to be on a mailing list?
