vintagefest!

On my birthday, April 26th, my bestie, Tiffany, and I went to an event called Vintagefest, that Jenni Bowlin puts on a couple times a year here.
It is always so much fun. She sets up a store in half of a hotel conference room....half is vintage stuff and half is scrapbook goodies!

Here's a display from the vintage side...

Here's Jenni and her cutie pie husband and son. Her brother showed up from out of town and surprised her for her birthday!

We had a blast cropping and chatting with friends.
 

Jenni had some of her gorgeous layouts up for inspiration on how to use her products...

So you wanna see what I bought? You know you do!! It's taken me three weeks to unpack the bag, I've been so busy!

I spent about $70 and got all this! Woo-hoo! The paper was 5 for $1 and the embellishments were all marked down...

I got about 50 pieces of paper, several sticker letter sheets, a mini-album kit plus lots of awesome embellies!
Here's a closer look...check out all the patterns - it's like all the patterns I pick out always go together!

and other side of the table....how cute are those stencils? Makes me want to create right now!

love all these embellishment sheets...

and this mini-album kit I got deeply discounted (chipboard mini album not shown 'cause I forgot to take a pic!)...

All that for under $70!! Oh happy day.

I just had to share. I spent about 3 hours this week cleaning my studio and I took loads of pictures to share with you later this week.
When I have a clean space, I am so much happier. I was able to put all these items away in about 5 minutes because it all has a place to go.
Love that!!

Happy crafting my friends - peace out and word to yo Motha.
