Scrapbook Eh! Wholesale Event

What a fabulous weekend!

I must tell you about the Scrapbook Eh! Wholesale Event I went to Friday with my mom. This show was AMAZING!

I saw some friends who I only get to see once a year or so at these things, met a ton of fellow scrappers, and was inspired by some of the industries greatest!

Stacy Julian, founding editor of Simple Scrapbooks magazine and author of Big Picture Scrapbooking, The folks from Fiskars, the fabulous Leica Forrest for Luxe Designs, Making Memories, Hot Off The Press and Layle, from the Scenic Route Paper Co were al there to help inspire, motivate, and challenge us. I found them all so refreshing and informative. I especially enjoyed Stacy Julian's approach to scrapbooking.

What else did this fabulous event entail?

So much more, I can't even begin to tell you, you really must experience it for yourself.

I got to play with the Making Memories Slice, a great new portable cutting tool, see demonstrations on the new programs coming out for the Cricut, got a behind the scenes look at some great new products, and the giveaways.... the giveaways were impressive to say the least.

Seriously, my mom and I both came home with almost more than we can carry. It was like that IKEA commercial, we were yelling, "Start the car! Start the car!" as we ran out of the conference with bags of loot!

And, the rest of the weekend didn't let me down either. I got to spend 2 days with my mom in the city, visited my grandarents and a bunch of family, went skiing, had friends over for a board game night, BBQ'd in the sunshine here in Lake Louise, and had a relaxing morning of movies with my hubby.

I do love to see the sunshine.

Hope you're all doing great, and I'll try and show you some of the goodies we got and the make' n takes we did on Friday!
