A weekend at the Brisbane Scrapbook Expo

Did anyone else have an amazing weekend at the Brisbane Scrapbook Expo last weekend?  This is hands down one of my favourite weekends every year.  I learned a bunch of things from fabulous tutors, met amazing artists, socialised with other lovely scrapbookers, and spent, well, lots.

It was such a joy to see my two kits for sale at the Daisy Chain Scrapbooks stand, and now that the Expo is all packed up and over for another year,  I can share the two layouts in full.

The first is "Love Your Way".

As I mentioned in this post, this layout features the My Minds Eye - Collectible - Memorable range, with lots of little blingy bits added.

As a little bonus, each kit came with instructions and supplies to make a card.  This is the card for the Love Your Way kit.

The second layout, featuring Echo Park Paper Co's Sweet Girl collection, is this cute girly page.

That little pink polka dot bow is just the most darling thing don't you think?  I pinned a tutorial and printable pattern from Jessica Jones over at How About Orange back in April, and knew I had to use that adorable bow somewhere.

I resized Jessica's template to 50% and simply cut the bow out in patterned paper and added it to my layout.

And this is the bonus card that came with the Happy Little Moments kit.  I totally fell for the washing line patterned paper, those sweet little dresses hanging on the line are too cute!

Because there was a delay in some stock arriving in time for the expo, there are still a few kits available to purchase.  Contact the girls at Daisy Chain Scrapbooks if you're interested.

Throughout the weekend I managed to snap a few pics with some of the lovely ladies there.

I took classes with both Sonia Thomason and Angella Peardon.

And at the end of the weekend, this is the view back across the Brisbane River to Southbank by evening.  Big city, bright it.
