Scrapbook Expo - Pleasanton, CA

This weekend is the annual Scrapbook Expo in Pleasanton. I wasn't sure I was going to go until about 30 minutes before I left.  It rained all day today, which discouraged me from wanting to drive 35 minutes to the show. In the past, I've taken the day off and got to the show when it opened. This year, I didn't get there until 3pm.  It was actually nice not to wait in line and to get a parking space right up front. The crowds all seemed to have gone, however I could tell from the parking lot, that it was a busy day.

One booth sold something very surprising. At my local East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse, I found these mini frames. You may remember them for a previous post. Well, I saw one booth with the same product.  I'm wondering if it's a coincidence, or they actually got them from the same place and packaged them up. The original image that I saw wasn't on them, but I swear that it's the same frame.

Here are the items I picked up.

I got some fun things to play with and since it'll be a rainy weekend, I hope to work on lots of projects.  Lately, I've been working on the Jenni Bowlin monthly kit using the Hodge Podge Book. My table is a mess of goodies.


  1. Interesting item about the mini frames...hmmmm. Can't wait to see what you make with the neat stuff you picked up!

  2. I went to EXPO early and it was crowded. I was mainly interested in the New Melissa Frances lines, so pretty. Although I was hoping to find the new 7G Steampunk stamps that are sold out everywhere. I found a great stampset with SP images by GLITZ.
