Craft Space Tuesday: Scrapbook Expo 2016

Good Morning and Welcome to Craft Space Tuesday

This week we're going to review my Scrapbook Expo 2016 experience.

So my Scrapbook Adventure started Thursday night when I went to pick up my BFF and bring her back to my house for the weekend. Thursday night was also spent packing for the crop on Friday. This was one of the most stressful things about the weekend. I'm horrible about packing for crops because I just want to bring everything! But to be fair last year I brought way to much. This year I did a little better. And hopefully next year I'll finally have it down.

Then we came to Friday. Our day started with volunteering at will call which was actually a lot of fun! And even though they call it volunteering you do get paid which is really nice. After that we went and get some lunch. After lunch we got all settled in for the crop. Then we went and did some shopping while my mom went to class and then we went to class. The class my mom took was a thinking about inking class. I haven't been able to get all the details from her but she said she really enjoyed it.  The class we took as a group was called Inked and Embossed cards! It was really cool and I learned A LOT!  We then spent the rest of the night at the crop. Had a ton of fun and got some really great stuff finished. I even won a door prize!

Saturday is where things got rough. We had stayed at the crop the night before until about 11:45. We got home about 12:15 ish and my friend and I accidentally stayed up till 1.... And we had to be up early to get to our 8:00 class Saturday Morning. We went to class and this was a copic class. You all know I love copics. My BFF has seen my copics but was never real into them. I HAVE CONVERTED HER AND NOW SHE LOVES THEM!!! *Insert Evil Laugh HERE* After the we were just so tired. We did a little more shopping but we were just super exhausted.

That's it that was our weekend. Even though we were tired It was great and I'm already getting excited for next year!

  1. Sounds like you had a whirlwind of a weekend, but had lots of fun. I know what you mean about packing for a crop...you never know what you'll need so you tend to over pack and then still don't have the one thing you need. The volunteering sound like fun...so does the shopping!

    1. I'm sorry you couldn't be there! It would have been fun to meet up! I won't be at the one in August this year or next year because I've saving up for a big trip in 2017. But I'm really hoping to go to the one in August in 2018! It's so much bigger then the one here!
