Fun at the EXPO

Happy Saturday, everyone!

So, did everyone enjoy their Friday? Mine was bunches of fun. But before I go into that, I'd like to say, that I hope my buddy, Jacki, is feeling better. She was supposed to go to the Expo with us yesterday. But she wasn't feeling well. Hope you're better today, my friend!

BEEP...BEEP...BEEP...BEEP...we interrupt this post for a special announcement. If you have no interest in scrapbooking, this may be a good place for you to stop reading. No hard feelings! I haven't always been a scrapbooker, so I totally understand ;). Thanks for stopping by and for reading THIS far. Check back later for my "normal" posting. And now back to our regularly scheduled post.

Ok, as I mentioned in my post yesterday, Jayla and I went to the 6th annual Scrapbook Expo. Jayla doesn't like having to get on the highway to get anywhere. So she really wasn't happy about having to travel on, not 1, but 3! Oh well, she did fine and the trip was uneventful. However, coming home was a totally different situation. I HATE TRAFFIC!!!

I had our $2 off general admission coupons and we were ready to shop. We even got some good news when it was our turn to pay. Jayla was FREE!!! This was my 6th year going to the Expo and I had no idea that kids were free up to age 12! SWEET!!!

We walked into the exhibit hall and Jayla was speechless...shocking, I know :-). She had a ball looking at all the stuff. There were SO many people!! Anyway, we got some good deals on stuff and I only spent $40! Ok, $39...Jayla asked if she could "borrow" a $1, cuz she saw something she just HAD to have, lol.

Check out my loot... This is what I got: Heidi Swapp small white flowers, Heidi Swapp Hibiscus & Drama foam stamps, Heidi Swapp "Cute" clear stamp, Heidi Swapp "Dots" foto folders, Melissa Frances Open-Up Albums (the large ones were a steal at $5 for 3 and the small ones were 3 for $4. I got 6 large ones and a small one for Jayla), EZ Laser Designs swirl, "Fisherman" & "Girls Night Out" titles/border, Snag 'em Stamp clear Calendar stamp ("Jayla" got this for free because the lady said she was so patient while standing in line), Quick Quotes giant chipboard "J", Pebbles Inc. School days double sided paper in Orange/Circles & Red/Stripes, Sandy Lion "Art in Motion" & "Around the corner" paper, Carol Wilson Fine Arts "Girly" Soccer papers and Adornit Carolee's Creations "Soccer Team Spirt" & "Soccer Ball Dots" papers

I was pretty pleased with what we got this year. I'm already looking forward to going next year. Who's goin with me??? Bring the kids...if they're under 12, they get in FREE!! LOL

Well, that's about it for me today. We're about to go over to my sisters house. My mom and her husband are in town this weekend, so we're going to visit with them for a while.

Ya'll have a great rest of the weekend! And remember, Be Inspired...I AM!!! Toodles!
