ScrapFest 2009

This weekend was ScrapFest at the Aud in Kitchener. I sometimes hate to admit that I've gone...there are some strange people at these things!

As part of the admission, you are entered into a grand prize draw. And guess what...I won!!! What are the chances! I think there is well over $200 of product in the grand prize...I was so excited when I found out!

But besides winning the grand prize, I really did have a good time. I learned some new tricks to create some beautiful layouts..but ones that don't require tonnes of work. We took home some great "make-n-takes" and maybe a few more kits :)

A great show for anyone interested in paper crafting!

Hi, I'm Heather's friend Catherine. I have checked out your blog a few times to see many similarities to some of my interests/current projects. I would have loved to have gone to Scrapfest. I have never gone...someday. Anyhoo...feel free to pop by my blog if you want.

The horseshoe was just lying on the ground :)

There was a die cut machine (Revolution), a Xyron machine, a t-shirt, some embellishments, a storage tote, an album...I think that might have been it...

Thanks for your comment. I ordered the kit but with the HUGE fiasco, did not get one. I bought the album at Michaels and downloaded Becky's cards that she provided free from her blog. She felt really bad about how poorly Creating Keepsakes Kit of the Month handled the kit. It's not as easy as the kit since I had to resize the the cards and cut them to fit into my album...but it's working. I just love the concept since this is the family album that I have never had time to make.
