Hey Bloggerettes, Just checking in with y'all. The Scrap Yard was invited to exhibit at the "Calgary Baby & Tot show" this past weekend. We set up a 600 square foot booth in 4 hours, had at least 3000 people go through it over the weekend and met sooooo many babies. Cute, cute, cute - not that I want one or anything! Baby names are so different now-a-days. We featured our wooden letters - Ray might be super busy in the next month if everybody who loved them comes in to order!!!!! Thanks to my friend Purcell who flew in from Victoria to help. Such a good friend! Lots of new product came in on Friday. We are attempting to get it all out on the shelves in the next few days. The big ticket item that I know arrived is the new SILHOUETTE CAMEO machine. I am anxious to try it out. Silhouette CAMEO® The Silhouette CAMEO® is an electronic cutting tool for personal use. Like a home printer, it plugs into your PC or Mac® with a simple USB cable. However, instead of printing it uses a small blade to cut paper, cardstock, vinyl, fabric and more up to 12" wide and 10 feet long. The machine also has the ability to register and cut printed materials. Contents: The Silhouette CAMEO® ships with the following important items: • Silhouette electronic cutting tool • Silhouette Studio® software for Windows XP/Vista/7 and Mac® OS X 10.5.8 and higher • 51 exclusive cuttable designs • Power cable, USB cable • 12" cutting mat • Cutting blade • $10 gift card to the Silhouette Online Store • Basic Instruction Guide. Sets of the popular Gelatos also came in. Susan will love these in her mixed media classes. Also, an update on the Teresa Collins "BLING IT ON CANADA" event. Today is the last day to get good rates at the Hyatt. BOOK TODAY - HAVE A MINI "STAYCATION" during the event. The SPA at the Hyatt is amazing! Lynn will be teaching SHABBY CHIC BOOT CAMP starting in November. If you have always wanted to try your hand at this style of scrapbooking, then you will want to sign up for this class. The class will be once a month for 6 months. Susan has some fabulous classes planned for the next few months. She was published again in Scrapbook Trends! Yeah for Susan!!!! I will be ordering more wooden Witch Boots this week. If you want a set please let me know ASAP. There is an update for my iPhone app "SCRAPBOOK INC" ready for you to download. Changes are on the horizon. Gotta go to work - see ya there!

I bought the Silhouette Cameo a month ago and I'm hooked! Love that I can buy designs online and use only what I buy. It cuts such intricate designs too. Have fun!
