Doing other things!

I was not able to get any card making done today as I was busily packing for Scrapaganza. Some of you may have heard us Prairie Fairies throwing this word around lately, so let me take a moment to enlighten you. Scrapaganza is GREAT. It is a Scrapping event held in a little town about an hour from where we live. Scrapaganzas are probly held everywhere, but I like to think we have the best one here in Manitoba, Canada! It starts at 8 am & goes until 8pm. We like to get there by 7-7:15 am as the line up for "the best" table starts as early as 6:45-7 am; then the doors open & it is, literally, a mad rush for tables! There are numerous vendors there (CTMH, Creative Memories and so forth), there is a graduated sale room where throughout the day the price of the items in the room goes down by 5% each hour. By the end of the day, anything left in that room is free. There is a 10cent paper room. There is a shuttle to take participants of Scrapaganza to the local Scrapbooking store where there are many more great deals to be found. There are also great prizes to be won throughout the day. They have little make & takes set up for people to take part in as well as a bigger class for a more complex project. Last year we made coasters! If you spend $100.00 at any of the above named places combined, you get a "free" gift at the end of the day. Oh did I mention that we also get lunch, supper and snacks!!!?!?!?!? Naturally one has to pay for a ticket to go to Scrapaganza & there is usually a waiting list to attend(I think there are usually around 200 participants). I am so excited to have gotten a ticket at the last moment!

Onto my project! Here we have a collage picture taken by a photographer who took my maternity & newborn (& family pictures). You can check out more of her work at Amber Bond Photography What I did was take an old picture frame, turn the mat around & decorated the frame to suite the picture of my 3 (sometimes) adorable children! Reade 2.5 yrs, Hannah 9 yrs & Merik 8 days old.

I used various Stampin up Stamp sets for the stamping parts, incuding "Priceless", "Warm Words", "Curvy Verses" & "Garden Whimsy".

I used a bit of glitter around different stamps and used pink, 2 shades of blue, brown, black and yellow from my ink collection.

The riboon on the side is misc., but thought it matched somewhat nicely.

And the word LOVE is from a set of clear alphabet stamps I purchased long before I even knew I was an avid stamper. I saw a deal and I nabbed it. This was the first time I actuallyused this alphabet stamp set and rather love it!

That's all I have for ya! I will not be back until Sunday (maybe) perhaps Monday?! Post Scrapaganza recovery you know! HAHA!! Wish me luck!

Scrappa what! You're crazy lady! I bet you are gonna tell me that you tell the store owners husband that he has a nice butt so you get lots of pink tickets for the silent auction too!

Love the picture frame!
