My CKC Mesa 2013 Scrapbooking Haul!

Yippee! I had so much fun shopping at the convention on Friday! I was exhausted when I got home!
The convention was a lot smaller than last year. I noticed a lot of the regular vendors were not there and it seemed the ones that were there had less stock of supplies. It was much harder to find a great deal. I also could not find any booths that sold liquid pearls or alcohol inks. Only one booth was selling Stickles! How can that be?? So anyways I still had a great time, I absolutely plan on returning next year!

The funniest shirt I saw a lady wearing and totally wanted it:

It is all fun and games until someone losses an eyelet!!

HEHE!! So funny!!

Here are some photos and a quick haul video!

  15. Wow! Such fun finds, love all of the dies, great deals too! By the way, your strawberry nails look fab in the video!

  16. This was my bedtime story -- I liked the $15 sizzix dies and stamp set you scored on that one--- It all looks like a lot of fun -- I am looking forward to seeing you use up that one bag of 300 embellishments. I bet you will do it too.

    Have a great week!

  17. Ha! I was wearing that shirt! I agree it was a much smaller convention; classes, shopping, giveaways and make-n-takes. I shopped too much, my bag was so full that it ended up bruising my arm, it still hurts.

  18. I got some Liquid Pearls, they were in the Clear Scraps booth I believe.

    Did you take any classes?

  19. Wow you got a nice selection of goodies! I just do not think I'd be able to walk out of there with spending as little as you did! LOL ... i usually spend a good fortune at convention... =)
