Scrapbook Expo and a Card

I'll start with the card I made for the May Caardvarks challenge which is a sketch created by Heidi Van Laar. I made one for both sketches but here's just the first one. I made it with my new Cogsmo paper I got from the Expo this weekend.

Yesterday was the last day of the Scrapbook Expo in Somerset NJ. My mom and I had signed up to be paid volunteers. We worked at will call and baggage check for four hours to earn money for some guilt free spending. The working was boring because both booths were kind of slow but when I got to the showroom floor the time just flew. None of my local stores carries enough Cosmo Cricket so when I saw deals on Cosmo Cricket I just snapped it all up. One booth had Cosmo Cricket for 30% so I bought some of Girl Friday, Earth Love, and The Boyfriend.

If I didn't already have enough Cosmo Cricket, another booth had old 8x8 kits of Cosmo for only $2.50 a pack so I snapped up Cogsmo, Honey Pie, Hello Sunshine, and Get Happy. Then I picked up some Thickers half price because I've started using so many after starting to scrapbook again recently. Overall it was a great day and I'm so happy with all my new stuff even if I really didn't need any new things. The picture is of me and my mom with our loot. My mom bought a really neat chalk set. She loves techniques whereas I'm more of a paper girl. She was considering copics but she likes these fancy chalks better.
