Scrapbook Expo Recap

As you know, I was able to get away for the weekend with some of my girlfriends...
Wearing a crown has been a 4 year tradition of ours.  
Why? Because princesses gave no responsibilities, no chores or jobs to do, someone else cares for their children, and they can
spend money on whatever they want. 
We had a blast!  We didn't get a lot of sleep or do a lot of scrapbooking, but we did do a lot of laughing, shopping, and this...
It was so fun to see the latest trends in scrapbooking, fashion,
accessorizing, and goodies.
I am so excited to share with you my great finds!!!

Jane and Me Jewelry is so fun!!!  It is fresh, new, and elegant.  I LOVE IT.  I got myself a few items and my Mom's Mother's Day gift too.  Mom if you are reading, please close your eyes NOW!
I think she will love it! 
Check this beauty out!!!  So fun.  Well, it can be yours!  Just leave a comment saying what your favorite item is from this post.  I'll pick a winner this Friday, April 1st. *Remember, you must be a follower to participate. 
We can be BFF's with matching necklaces!

I love stamps and these are so CUTE!  They had other cute stuff, too.  Like chalkboards (which I bought), magnets, and cute cake stands (which I got, too).
Oh the possibilities with these babies.  They are so cute!

These are my favorite albums.  I got 3 for $15.  What a dang good steal!
I love their sheet protectors, too.

Kiwi Lane produces designer templates that help save you time, money, and facilitate your creativity.  Just place the templates on your paper, move them around and watch as unique and professional designs spring to life before your eyes!  All of the designer templates work together, which equals endless possibilities.  Brilliant Idea.  I wish I had them all!!!

Tired of cords everywhere?  I am!  Apple Core cord organizers are a great solution to that and they are so cute.  They come in small, medium, and large .  They also come in several different colors.  I will be doing a review in April, so I'll let you know what I think.  So far I LOVE THEM!!!

I had the large Apple Core on the counter and little M was rolling it around.  It fell to the floor.  She climbed down and wrapped her little hand around it, grunted, and pretended that she was lifting weights.  It was so stinkin' cute.  So, they can also be used as baby weights!!!

These girls are from the Logan, UT area.  I've got to make it up there.  They are a clothing, scrapbooking, fabric, and accessorizing boutique.  Such a cute booth.  I love my new fabric!

How do you clean your glasses?  I clean my sunglasses with the bottom of my shirt.  Well, not any more now that I have a Spudz Cleaner.  It is the perfect size and it has a clip so it can be attached to your camera, carried in your purse,  or practically anywhere.   
This one can be yours.  Just leave a comment saying what your favorite item is from this post.  I'll pick a winner this Friday, April 1st.

Nothing Bundt Cakes was offering FREE SAMPLES both days.  I think I walked past 6 times!!!  Please don't tell them.  They are SOOOO delish!  I am not a huge chocolate fan (I like it, but don't love it), but I recommend the Chocolate Chocolate Chip.  It is amazing!  If you are in Sandy, UT (10389 S. State Street) you have to check them out.  You won't be disappointed.  I brought one home to share with my family and it was gone in 30 seconds! 
Please, Nothing Bundt Cakes, come up north!

According to Die Cuts With a View we will now be seeing
ball gowns made with paper instead of fabric. 

This was a fun weekend, but it is sure good to be back home.  I really missed my family.  When I got home, our house was clean and our girls where bathed
(my two favs - clean home and clean kids).
I truly have the best husband ever!!!


  1. WOW-looks like you had a spectacular weekend!! Of course I would have to say that the fabric booth was my favorite review because I went to their site and saw the CUTE owl and now I NEED to make it!!! Lets definently plan a trip to Logan to check out their store!

  2. You know I would have to say the jewelry :)
    But the fabric booth looked very fun as well!
    Looks fun, maybe I'll have to make it down there one of these years....

  3. I wish I could have gone for myself. So jealous! You found cute stuff! I liked the jewelry too! I am also a fan of We R Memory Keepers! Keep me posted on the good FINDS! So fun - love it!

  4. Looks like you had a lot of fun. I liked the fabric booth the best, but the stamps booth looked good too. It would be fun to go to both of them sometime.

  5. The necklace is adorable. I am really liking fun different jewlery lately. The eye glass cleaner would be so helpful though, like you I am ALWAYS cleaning my glasses on my shirt. I am sure that is part of the reason they are so scratched.
    Glad you guys had a great time. Cute pics.

  6. It was a fun weekend. it was nice to meet you! I will be contacting you for sure! thanks again!

  7. My favorite thing in this post is for sure Kiwi Lane's templates! I was also at the expo this past weekend and I bought almost every template! It was really expensive because I bought so many, but well worth it because I am already having tons of fun with them!

  8. Hi - it's Debbie from the ADORNit booth. I'm so glad you loved our booth - it was fun to share our new fabric with girls who really appreciated it and got so excited. Remember to go to ADORNit's Facebook page and post a Fan photo of your finished fabric project. I can't wait to see what you make! Promise?!

  9. I'm partial to the kiwi lane designs booth because they've given me such inspiration in the past! I also liked the stamp booth review. Super cute stuff; wish I could've made it to the expo myself!

  10. I was at the Expo last weekend, too. I was so glad to see the My Cute Stamps booth, that I bought a few sets of their super cute stamps.....but, I think that my favorite of your post is the pic of the t-shirt at the top. My good friend Tomi designed it!! =)

    Thanks for sharing this fun giveaway and the chance to win some fab goodies!!

  11. So many choices. I was unable to make it to the expo, so I rely on blogs like yours. I already LOVE Kiwi Lane (that's how I found you), but I really love those necklaces. I would really love to get one for my mom (and maybe one for me)

  12. I love the pictures of you guys having so much fun. Something we all should do more of. I liked the Apple Core organizers and wondered how they worked out.

  13. Looked so fun!! I loved the fabric because I am getting into sewing. I also thought the bundt cake looked yummy. ALso, My cute stamps looked fun. I need to check it out. I already thought we were BFF so I better win!!!!!!!

  14. I love the pictures of you having so much fun. Something we all should do more of! I like the Apple Core, wondering how well it works.

  15. Hey Staci! My favorite thing - the necklace! :)

  16. Thanks so much for coming! We loved the tiaras! Love your blog, too! It was fun to see it from your view with the pics, deals and all! Thanks for sharing on our facebook wall!

  17. It WAS Faboulous!! I love all your finds and there were some amazing booths with great & innovative things! My favorite on you show n' tell is the necklace with bows. You rock!

  18. So I'm new to this whole blog comment thing, but let's give it a whirl! What an amazing weekend at Expo!! Love all your blog show-n-tells. . . but I do think the bow-necklace is pretty. It is so fun to be a princess for a weekend!!
