Great weekend!

I had a fabulous weekend, which still isn't over, since we're all home today too. Anyway, went to the Scrapbook Expo with my cousin, Cheri on Saturday--so much fun. At least until I got lost on the way home, but that's nothing new. We took some fantastic Rusty Pickle classes--three to be exact. The first was a "Smile" album. We were a tad disappointed that it was so girly--we thought it would be more neutral (we both only scrap our guys!), but it is so stinkin' cute, that I love it! Here's a few pics--I don't want to bore you with all the pages, but you get the idea.



Then we took the "Boy's Life" album class--perfect for my boys! Love the papers and colors!






The last class was huge! I didn't even come close to finishing it. It was a 12x12 calendar. Silly us, we thought album, totally missed the "calendar" part of the class description. However, we had lots of extra paper, so mine is becoming an album instead. I don't have any pics, because, like I said, I didn't even come close to finishing. We were about scrapped out in that class, so we left early to squeeze in more shopping!

I didn't spend TOO much money. We made a pact at the begininning of the day not to let each other buy paper, unless we could justify exactly how and when we were going to use it. Last year we both bought tons of paper that we still haven't used. Without buying paper, I found that there wasn't much I wanted. However, I did get a toy I'd been eyeing for a while--a Bind it All. I was going to wait and get it from Erin, but they were offering too great a deal to pass up. I didn't buy any chipboard/album-making materials, so I'll be ordering those soon. I want to make a scrapbook purse that I saw at Vegas Regionals. As soon as I find all the materials, I'll make one and post.

Overall, we had a great day, and I always enjoy spending time with my cousin--she and I always have fun together. I wish she wasn't two hours away so we could get together and scrap more. I'll leave you with one last image. I found these fabulou buttons at the Rusty Pickle booth. I loved the sayings and had to buy them!
