My table included Jossie and Renee and we knew the table next to us where Joann and 3 of her friends sat.
This is the 4th Expo Crop I've gone to and I normally don't get much done, but this time I had a goal of getting my 2001 Disneyland trip complete and I knew I only had 4 2-page layouts to go...so that was my goal. I got 3 of 4 of the layouts complete!!! I was so happy :) (I'll share the layouts in a separate post.)
I got there about 8 am when the crop section opened. I was able to get a layout complete before I went shopping.
I was actually good and didn't buy way too much like I normally do. (It helped that there weren't very many vendors there.)
I was really looking for cheap Thicker because I am obsessed now. Scrap-Mart had 4 for $10...my first go through of the bin I had about 12 in my hand...so I whittled it down to 8...then I realized that was $20! So I only bought 4. I was needing a frame for the layout I was working on, so it was perfect that I found these Crate Paper ones.
A few of the vendors had bins and bins of cheap paper...(and tons of people crowding around them searching)
But before I got there, I swore to myself I was not going to buy any paper... and I almost left without buying any, but before the floor closed, we went back in and I left with 1 sheet of the Simple Stories Say Cheese sheet.
I was totally happy that I only spent $25...not too bad. I actually spent more on food for the entire day! (well unless you add in the price of admission ($8) and the crop ($35)--hahaha.)
With the cost of the crop, we were able to pick a kit worth $20...I got the Teresa Collins Hello My Name Is kit.
