Despite having The Cold That Would Not Die But Instead Morphs Into Some Kind Of Evil Bronchitis-Demon-Thing, I still managed to have a pretty fun weekend. On Saturday, we ventured out to the Create-n-Crop Event in Perry. Brian and I went, along with Kristi, her husband, Chris, and Linda.
They called it a "Paper Crafting Extravaganza," but once we got inside and walked around a bit, we discovered it was more of just a "Ganza" without the "Extra" part. We were underwhelmed, to say the least. It was very small, and took us under an hour to walk the whole thing, including stopping and looking and buying and taking our time. But we still had fun! I got a new Glimmer Mist, some Stickles and some ink! So it was worth the drive. But I am still looking forward to the bigger expo this summer in Duluth.
Here are some pics from the day.
The famous Clock Tower at the Agri-Center and Fairgrounds in Perry, GA:
Oh, the Stickles of it all:
Here, we watched as a lady in a booth (where I bought all my goodies!) showed us a really cool technique--she heat-embossed a stamped image onto some metallic fibers. The image could then be cut out and used on a scrapbook page or card. It was pretty neat!
Prima and their never-ending genius and cuteness. These are paper-pieced embellishments and I really want that cat!
Cardstock is pretty.
Eric Erickson's booth had a really cool arrangement of scissors and flowers.
Linda, me and Kristi, grinnin' and shoppin'. :D
Copic markers in all their glory. So pretty!
As you can see, I'm a bit mesmerized by them and their glitter pen friends. :D
Afterward, Linda had to go, but Brian and I went with Kristi and Chris to eat at Cracker Barrel. It was fun! A great day spent with great new friends!
