Welcome to my blog!

Thanks for visiting my blog. As the title suggests, I love to scrapbook, stamp, and sing! I will share cards and scrapbook pages I create, as well as information about my music - Barbershop harmony.

ScrapFest 2013 - Third and final day

ScrapFest 2013 is now just a memory - what a fun weekend, even though we were missing friends who couldn't make it this year.  I did run into Jennifer, a Flickr friend whom I met at last year's ScrapFest.  Here we are in Spellbinder's aprons that they handed out to the early birds:

Me and Jennifer (stamp lover2011)
I saw her when ScrapFest opened today at 11a.m. and never again the rest of the day!  We had different strategies since this was day 3 for me but her only day attending.  Too much fun at the Waterpark, Jennifer!!

Here are some of the projects I made today:

I also picked up a layout from PaperWizard with a bunch of layered die cuts for a Mickey Mouse page and a Christmas layout from Bazzill.  I didn't take the time to make either project since the hours were fewer today for make 'n takes.  Sometimes at the end of ScrapFest, vendors will have giveaways.  Well, the only booth to do anything was Graphic 45 - as the last group at their booth, they gave us extra sticker sheets and tag bases for the tags we made.  I managed to make it to every booth participating this year, even Buttons Galore where they made earrings with buttons (I just took the free buttons).
So, until next year - that's it from the Mall of America and ScrapFest.  Thanks to all the vendors who came to meet and greet all the eager crafters who spend their hard earned money on their products.  It's not cheap for vendors to participate and we appreciate them!!  And thanks to Archiver's for producing this event - their employees work hard to make it run smoothly.

Have a crafty week and thanks for stopping!!

Great picture! So wish I'd made it as now it's uncertain for next year. I'm ready for something in September--maybe PaperCrafts will come through! Your projects look fun & nice to get some free stuff!
