Brisbane Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo

My friend Monika and I went to Brisbane and stayed at the Ibis for 2 nights.. Just the best ever girly weekend.. shopping, coffee, drinkees, out for dinner and of course the Scrapbooking Expo. It was so much fun. We left home straight after School drop off Friday morning and had a long pit stop in at Chermside Shopping Centre on the way down.. We spent 4 hours there and spent half of our spending money there as there were sales galore... then we hit the room at the Ibis. We jumped on the beds, drink our wines in bed with potato chips in bed watching shit on TV and even had crumbs in the bed... we just laughed.. It was soo relaxing for us. We rested til about 7 and then walked to the Southbank Markets and spent some more $ on some gorgeous stuff there. We then sat down for the yummest dinner.. I had lamb shanks with a lovely orange sauce and mashed potato. ohhhh soo yummy.
Saturday morning we hit the Scrapbooking Expo. This is where we had so much fun. There was so much to look at and take it it was great. I bought mainly so much chippy. It was great to see som much delicate and intricate chippy out there now. I love the stuff. I think this is my new addiction. I spent a fortune on it... but I love every single individual different piece I bought.
Saturday night we met up with my dear friend Kim Zerner from Warwick. We had a few drinks and had a lucious dinner at a gorgeous Ahmets Turkish Restaurant. Our meal was soo delish. Not a late night out but a very enjoyable one.. and even more enjoyable once we hit our comfy beds at the Ibis. Today we hit Queen St mall and finished off by doing some more shopping. I cannot believe just how fast our 3 days went. Cannot wait for our next weekend away. Was just the best.
I have added some photos of our weekend.

The gorgeous Tracy.... the absolute Heart and Soul of my2angels. Tracy had such a massive variety of stock and her charms and flowers are just soo cheap. $1.60 for most packets of 6 charms. They are soo cute.

Having my morning fix of coffee.... this bowl of cappucino was so yummy first thing in the morning when it was so cold.

Monika and I out for Friday night
