So the Scrapbook Expo in Hotlanta was this past weekend...
The events of the last week involving all of the Katrina victims changed my perspective on going to the event... it's dumb that it takes something this catestrophic to open my eyes to how truly blessed I am. It was sad seeing refugees stopped at the state line rest stops, eating free food from the Salvation Army and looking a bit shell shocked.
We had a good time, hanging out and seeking out new stuff there. It was my birthday present from my mom and Grams, and they both treated me to lots of fun goodies. Mom and my sister Mallory both won door prizes too, which was cool. I loaded up with lots of Basic Grey, some Bazzil mono packs (brown and pinks, my faves!), some Basic Grey rubons (hella cute), & lots of odds & ends from other manufacturers. Mallory, my little sister, really made the day fun for me because she took care of Emerson for me virtually the whole day. I was able to browse without having the stroller to navigate. Mallory was very self-sacrificing and definitely showed me that not ALL teenagers are selfish gits. ;) Thanks little sis.
Sunday night we went to go hear the band our bro-in-law plays in - Sunny So Bright. If you are ever in Birmingham, definitely go check them out. They are very cool.
She did NOT like the flash on my camera! (I usually have it turned off when I take pics of her.) She did like the people, lights, and music.
We took Emerson to go see them... it was her first show. She wore her "Future Rock Star" onesie in honor of it. ;)
Need to go organize my scrap goodies and get my scrapping area in decent shape for some creating....
