Scrapbook Expo in Salt Lake - I'm Gearing Up!!

You might be asking - "What in the world does the Scrapbook Expo have to do with the HWHL blog?!!" Well, that's where I'll be getting some MEGA inspiration for the cards and miniscrapbook I'll probably be giving away at the end of this session. Not that I'm throwing in the towel, mind you, but I'd be weirdly bummed if I won again. That's kind of boring! Getting your "trash kicked to the curb", as Cat from Cat's Challenge says, can kind of be good for you. It can renew your determination, kick in your competitive spirit.

Anyway, the Scrapbook Expo is this weekend in Salt Lake City at the Southtowne Expo Center, Friday and Saturday. I'm coming into town to visit with family (one of my cousins has a fiance from Alaska we all need to meet), so I'm going to see the Expo, and maybe be there with my cousin and fam, too. Anyone else going? We could meet up! The thing is, I'll probably only be able to be there Friday night at the midnight crop, from about 8pm on, and then I can show up whenever Saturday. I sure hate to pull my kids out of school Friday on their first week of school, especially my Connor, who just started kindergarden. Man, that was a rough first day for him today! But that's another saga.

If I bring back some cute things, I'll definitely post some teasers here on the blog. Neener, neener, neener, come and get me!!


  1. This sounds like tons of fun! What a great thing to do this weekend!

    I'm all for taking the kids out of school. Last year we took Jonah out of school the first Friday because we went camping. Sometimes you've got to do what you've got to do.

    Can't wait to hear about your weekend and I look forward to the cards that I'll be getting as the challenge winner :-)

  2. Becky, you are motivating us to get back in gear...but it's more fun to compete when you're still going at it! Audrey, you'll be splitting those cards with me.=)

  3. Becky, I wish I could come! Actually, I heard there was a sewing expo here in dc. I'm gonna look it up. We had a couple rough first days of school too. I found a note already in my 6 year olds back pack saying he got in trouble in PE twice already. They've only been in school two days! It's going to be a long year. I think I need to head out for a run and blow off some stress steam. Toot Toot! I'm going to win this challenge this time, so keep me in mind while making those cards.
