Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Convention in Mesa, AZ

I went to the Scrapbook Convention this past weekend with my mom and sister- she flew in from California. We made it a Girl's weekend and decided to stay at the Marriott right next to the Convention center. We had a great time going to classes and the evening crops on Friday (Cricut Circle Crop for me) and Saturday to the general crop. The 3 of us brought so much scrapping stuff and used maybe 1/16th of what we brought- haha! We took 2 Copic Markers classes so now we are hooked on Copic Markers- these are great, but expensive.

I also tried this new product-well new to me- called Be Creative Tape Sheets. It is a double sided tape (Be Creative Tape Sheets) that you cut to size and sprinkle this fine, fine glitter(Crystal Glitter Ritz) on it- then rub it in and apply an Elizabeth Craft Designs sticker to it (outlined in black, silver or gold).You can then color on top of the glitter with markers (not Copics as they bleed). The glitter does not rub off- the look is really nice! I will have another post showing a birthday card I made with these stickers, glitter, tape and markers. You can check these product out here:

Here are a few photos from our weekend.

Our table at the crop- What a mess!
