Scrapbook Convention Haul

Well hello there,

Today I am feeling EXHAUSTED, but very Happy :)  My feet are aching but it was so so worth it.

Yesterday was the Brissy Scrapbook Papercraft Convention and I had the best day.  Highlights were: the Manor House stand, meeting Nerrida and Karen Shady,  finally meeting Kim Ewins and Liz Weber who are on the Craft Queen DT with me, oh yeah, and the Craft Queen stand - best in show!!  So, great to see Nicole again too.  I also met a dear blogger friend Lizzy for the first time, she has been following my blog forever :) also saw another dear scrappy friend Cindy and so great to also meet Stacey Apps who is on the Purple Pumpkin DT with me.  I also had chat and shop with Tracy from My2Angels and I did a fab class with the lovely Sonia Thomason using new and very yummy scrapmatts and yes, I did also see Tim - twice.

Low lights, the line for the ladies (surprise, surprise) and paying $6 for a Egg and lettuce sandwich for lunch oh yeah and the $21 car park charge! but all in all a FAB day!!
