The Expo was the 20th anniversary of Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Expo's event! TWENTY years of organizing a popular event is mind blowing to me. I guess because I have NEVER lived anywhere for that long (military Brat and married a military member!) TWENTY years, or 2 decades of presenting a variety of items to view, sample and buy.
I took some of these 'beads' from the bag, dropped them on my heat proof mat and heated this Magic Stamp with my heat gun that I use for embossing.

I bought a lot of metal dies while I was at the expo. Here are some pictures of the ones I purchased:

|Cheery Lynn Designs|
I really enjoy browsing all the different die companies out there. Some designs are just SO intricate! Look at these butterflies that you can die cut and emboss from Cheery Lynn Designs! WOW!

Until Next Time--
