Our weekend in Melbourne & Paperific.......

What a wonderful time we had - Leanne and I packed our bags for an intended two night stay but within 24 hours realised it was just not enough so extended by a further night.
We cannot recommend Quest apartments Flemington highly enough. It is quiet and peaceful and we always have a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment so ensure plenty of comfort, sleep and choice etc.

Above is only a very small part of our set up, every surface was taken up! 


Above and below are some of the makes on display in booths - we did not take many shots. 

We took our car loaded with  play things for our down time and did plenty of cricuting, cuttlebugging, making, dreaming, planning and oh the odd Baileys and Moscato!!

A fridge full of healthy snacks and we were well catered for!

We budgeted - for some significant shopping and made some great purchases

As per the last few years we met some amazing people, both store holders, demonstrators and simply by introducing ourselves to others attendees.

The CTMH stall looked amazing and there was a very friendly group of girls there on Sunday. We did the make and take and also learned a few things to help with starting off as a consultant. I cannot wait for my kit to arrive - I think I have said that about 20 times now!!!

We took a few snaps but not too many - too busy doing make and takes and watching demo's!

Below was our favourite make and take. It was from Art stamps and the tags were beautiful.
Glenice, the demonstrator was so friendly and we caught up with her on each of our FOUR trips to the show.....YES we went four times...on a three days pass!

The plain tags were a great buy but of course us cricuteers can do wonders with CTMH cartridges and that is of course what I am doing today!!

Going home (and packing everything) was the hardest part. We met Leanne's hubby at Morwell and this is just her share of the luggage. Then I headed back to Maffra - all the way thinking about what to make first etc....

Anyway this morning its back to reality however we have a  night out planned for tomorrow with a group of lovely ladies who we are meeting to scrap with. I plan to make more tags and also the cute file box from CTMH cricut artise - page 47 - with some cards to fit.

Chat soon,

I welcome emails and comments - happy to share information and to assist with any queries eg cricut/cuttlebug, Ebosser related.
