Had to Haves!

(Disclaimer to hubby who apparently reads my blog, on occasion:  Value of items shown is WAAAAY more than what was paid.  I done good....)

I just got back from my pilgrimage to Mecca (Read: Scrapbook Expo).  Scrapbook Expo is an annual event in my's basically one of those scrapbooking convention type things that travels around the country.  They host crops and classes and then the true Mecca is that there is an exhibition hall packed with vendors!  That is the fun part...and the soul cleansing part (not really!).

I meant to take more pictures inside the exhibit hall but I only got this one.  Lots of other pilgrims searching for bargains and the latest and greatest!
 This was a great booth...lots of $1 items.
Not everything I bought was just $1, though.  Some were slightly more...
Here are the things that found their way into my bag....

Some pieces of gingham ribbon.  I love gingham....
 Some 6x6 My Mind's Eye paper pads. 4 for $10!  Great deal...they retail for about $6 a pad!  I love, love, love these small two sided paper pads for cards!  Fabulous!
 Another cute pad by Creative Imaginations. 
 Some teensy tinsy black pop dots.  They are about 1/8th of an inch.  So teensy!
 These have been around for a while...but I love daisies...can't see it here but there is a little glitter on shiny and sparkly.
 Love these flat backed pearls and gems!  Love them!
 Stamps and Framelits from Sizzix.  I loved this little set.
 A Hero Arts set that I loved and thought would work well on scrapbooking pages, too!
 Some Spellbinders...
 And lastly a Spellbinder die set with some coordinating stamps.  Too wonderful!

And that was it....can't wait to play with my stuff!

Happy Crafting!
