The Scrapbook Expo was fun!

When my friend and I decided to go, my plan was to attend the Friday crop from 8 a.m. until midnight, with a little shopping in between, and just "hang out" on Saturday while my friend attended two Saturday classes.  However, as the Friday crop was coming to a close and I needed something to do on Saturday for about six hours, and I didn't want the crop time to end, I decided to purchase a Saturday crop ticket.  (I also figured it would still be cheaper than shopping.)  To make a long story short, when my friend was done with her classes, I talked her into purchasing an evening crop ticket and we stayed until 11:30.  The Gaylord Palms is beautiful, but their hospitality and attention to details (regarding the crop), left a lot to be desired.  When we walked into the crop room (which by the way, was about as far from the parking lot as possible), it was a stripped down banquet room.  It felt like a warehouse.  There was no carpet and the ceiling was the raw structure.  In other words, there weren't any drop ceilings with beautiful chandeliers, which I had imagined there would be.  It made all the sounds echo and made it almost impossible to understand any announcements.  The tables were meeting tables, not banquet, so they were only about 12 inches deep AND they were not covered.  The "wood" was splintered and beat up.  Thankfully I had brought my large cutting mat to work on.  Fortunately, with good friends, scrappin' and some new goodies, we still had a blast.  It only makes me look forward to SDV (Scrapper's Dream Vacation), held at the Contemporary at Disney.  Now they know how to do it right.
