a glimpse of heaven :)

I went to the Great American Scrapbook Convention yesterday. It was AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The entire Arlington Convention Center was all just a scrapbookers HEAVEN!! I could've spent days there. Next year I want to participate in some of the crops...especially the all night ones. Smile It took hours just to WALK through! Every single paper manufacturer and scrapbook supplier was there!!

The only (dumb) picture of me and Kayson inside....it was so overwhelming I didn't even think of pics until it was too late. LOL

A guy that works with all the Tim Holtz stuff made this for me! Smile This is his website:

I watched him make it in only about 4 minutes! It was amazing watching his techniques. I learned so much!!!
So of course...I bought a bunch of stuff...haha

more goodies....

I can't wait to play with these....they can be sprayed on any paper to give it just a little bit of sparkle. You can't really tell, but the bookmark Tod made me has that over it.

Now I can't wait to SCRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

that is awesome!!!!!! sounds like it was amazing there, so glad you got to go.

I'm laughing that you didn't think of pictures. I would have thought you would have been all over pictures to make a layout from the experience. Wink

How fun, I wish they had one of those over by me. I would love to see all the demos of the different techniques they have. I am a sucker for cute papers, its my favorite thing to shop for.
