Scrapbook Convention

A couple of weeks ago, Rey, Meg and I drove to San Marcos for a few days so that I may attend "Creative Keepsakes" scrapbook convention. It's held every year at the Embassy Hotel/Convention Center. It was four days of creative scrapbook heaven. Had tons of fun and can't wait to attend again next year. Here's a couple of photos of Meg and I taking a lunch break at the Vendors Fair. Relaxed a bit and then headed back for some more shopping.

My partner in crime...Meg loves scraping just as much as I do. God...we had so much fun.
