Saturday's Scrapbook Expo

Don't forget to leave a comment on my 500th postto win FIVE free bookmarks!



Saturday my friend and I went to the Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton. Originally we were going to have a big group of people (well like 5 or so) but slowly everyone cancelled on us so it was down to just B and I. This was the first time I had spent any time with B one on one other than the crops that she has at her house.

I went and picked her up at 9:30 and then we drove over to Pleasanton. The parking was EIGHT DOLLARS. What a rip! I think it's been going up about a dollar everytime we go. You'd think they'd give you something for that eight dollars other than the right to park in their parking lot. Like maybe a coupon for something free inside or something.

While we were standing in line I realized I had left my $2 off postcard at home. Luckily a woman noticed and let me use hers because she had another discount paper. This happens almost everytime we go to at least one of us. It's so nice how people are quick to help out their fellow scrapbookers.

So we walked around and bought stuff, I got 2 new scrapbooking t shirts. I love to wear those around the house and even out to run errands or whatever. Here's what one of them says. They were kind of picked over already but they were such a great deal I got 2 anyways!





OH and I got a license plate frame. You can get yours Here. Wonder how long it will take for Scott to notice it? I still have to put it on.



But the highlight of the trip for me was when I found THIS PAPER! Only you bloggers will understand lol.



Here's a close up! I think I'm going to try to work that into my background or header.




After we got done shopping we got back in the car and headed to Mimi's for lunch. It's a tradition that we go there everytime we go to on a trip in that direction with our group of friends.

I had a nice time with B and fun shopping too. Hopefully next time more gals can come because the more the merrier definitly applies to going to the Scrapbook Expo.Pin It

Hey thanks for commenting on my kitchen. I never even thought of a black outlet and cover. I will have to check that out. It would be nice to not let it stick out like a sore thumb. Thanks for your advice.

500th comment? holy shit.

I have entered the world of practice 4 times a week and a 'game' every other 2 days (it seems)...and it sucks.
