Saturday, Feb 9

Good Morning Everyone,

I know, we're all praying for moisture this weekend!  Rain, rain come again today!  Even lots of snow would be welcome!

We had such a great time last weekend at the inaugural Front Range Scrapbook & Paper Craft Fair at Embassy Suites Hotel!  And it looks like they will continue to hold it here in this area every Feb.  Hopefully it will get bigger and bigger, with lots more vendors.
 I know that card makers are not used to the higher admittance price, like scrapbookers are.  The price included snacks of apples, mints, cookies, trail mix, coffee, tea and water bottles, from 9-6.  We all walked on carpet, and sat in comfortable, upholstered chairs.  It's a beautiful hotel.  And so convenient, parking was right outside the front doors.  Some of us felt pampered.

Elizabeth (Els) from Elizabeth Craft Designs demonstrated her beautiful products and techniques all day for us at our booth!  What exciting products, what exciting designs and projects she accomplished with her many creative products!
Here is our photo of Els in our booth, notice her lanyard she created using her many dies on her shimmer sheets and velvet sheets, also peel off stickers and micro fine glitters:

If you were lucky to attend and watch her, you  must be very excited about her company, as well!
We will have another couple of classes using her products, Sat, March 23, with Caron, our Elizabeth Craft Designs rep!  Artsy has a huge collection of her products to sell, of course.

We have just received 5 new Bo Bunny collections this past week, new dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, new Northwoods Stamps collection, new Stampendous stamps and fragment colors, both with beautiful sample boards for spring.  Expecting Memory box dies and Graphic 45's 2 new collections this coming many new things....too much fun!
