Scrapfest in Kitchener

I spent the day at Scrapfest in Kitchener yesterday - what a great day! Got up early to arrive before 9am at the Aud for my morning class. Veronica and I (along with the rest of the class) made two great layouts designed by Trisha Ladouceur using My Mind's Eye products. I loved the Penny Lane line so much that I had to buy it at the vendor faire after class! We had a picnic lunch in the parking lot - lol - and then spent the rest of the afternoon shopping with Amanda and Lisa. I got some really great stuff - a couple kits and lots of great papers, some rubons and stamps too! I'm so excited that Stamping Bella now also features designs from Ketto. I see Ketto at the One of a Kind Show every year. They are a Quebec-based company that designs really cute images to decorate dishes, plates, cups, clothing, jewelry. At the One of a Kind show they really only feature their dishware, so next time I'm in Quebec City I hope to drop by their store to see their entire collection. Yesterday they were leading a card make-and-take. Look at what I made!

I ended up buying a few stamps from their booth - although I was really tempted to buy more than I did. Veronica got some too - so I'm sure we can share :) I was also on a mission during the day to find some products from Heidi Swapp's new lines - she's one of my favourites. Sadly none of the vendors had her complete lines, but I did manage to find some papers and overlays across a few of the vendors. Thank you for those vendors who did carry her product!

Here we are at the end of the day with all our purchases - we may look a little tired, but we're definitely smiling!

On the way home Veronica and I stopped at Del Dente for dinner. One of my favourite dining out locations while I was living in KW. Included with your meal is fresh bread that is baked and served in a flower pot and it comes with three great spreads - red pepper hummus, garlic herb and apple cinnamon (my favourite)! Delicious!
