Thanks to Tracy at Staving Artistamps, I found out that the Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Expo was coming to Hartford last weekend! After checking with my local stamping friends, I found out that my friend Pat was demonstrating on Sunday, so that was the day that the baby and I headed up.
Being the geek that I am, I decided to stamp a onesie for the baby so he would look even cuter than normal. I chose Drake the dragon from the Doodle Factory Fairytale set because I think he is just too cute! I colored him in with metallic soft paints from Tulip. Isn't the sparkle awesome?
The convention itself was a lot of fun. In addition to seeing Pat, Ms. Technique Junkie, I ran into Barb & another Pat who were both in my sideline when I was a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. That was a nice surprise because I haven't seen them since I was pregnant.
I did pretty well spending-wise. I had to pick up the two Tropics sentiment sets from starving artiststamps and I also got a cute clear baby set from Inkadinkado. Hopefully I'll have a finished project to show you with those early next week.
My little guy was a real trooper throughout the show considering he missed his morning nap. By the time we left, he was ready to fall fast asleep.
