Scrapping Fun!

So, last Thursday night and all day Saturday I attended our annual scrapbook convention with Annette. We took in four classes that were filled with a lot of great project ideas and some new techniques! We walked the show and shopped for supplies for a long time and picked up great ideas there too. I think we both had a great time! Saturday night we finished up with stopping for dinner at Red Robin - what a fun day!

Here are some photos of the projects we did. The first night we made an altered scrapbook into a recipe collection. Each person who attended the workshop brought with them scrapped recipes and we all swapped. This class also had a fun candy wrapper, bread wrap and a cute chinese food box.

On Saturday we did three workshops. The first one was making a wonderful altered canvas that is used to display photos and memorabilia. You can set it up as a tri fold frame or a wall hanging lengthwise. This was by far my favorite class!
Then we learned some new paper techniques for scrapbooks where you can work outside of your protective page. The ideas were cool and I might use some in other kinds of projects, but really not too much my taste. However, it is always good to learn something new and often times it makes a technique not seem as intimidating.

And, finally we made this adorable winter themed board book. It is just cute as pie, was very easy to do and a lot of fun!
