Anyone have a list of upcoming scrapbook conventions that are open to the public?
Here are a couple of sites that might help you in finding a convention.
www.dreameventsinc.com (a friend of mine has attended a couple of their events and was very impressed)
www.creatingkeepsakes.com (on the left there's a link to 'conventions')
Hope these help you!!
I just got back from one in PA with about 150 people. I'm now digital scrapping..I like it a lot. They pulled me in kicking and screaming LOL. I mainly went because it was a computer crafting convention for years..this is the first time it was both. I did some traiditional scrapping too, but the digital is awesome! My daughter holds traditional scrapping (Creative Memories) workshops often. I think they are $10. I'm sure if you contact Creative Memories, they'll give you some local people who run workshops, or I can get a name or two of someone closer. Or you can hold a "party" and earn stuff for having one in your home.
Right near you (I learned at the convention), near the highschool and Adam's heating, is a scrapping store, and they have make it take it's several times a week. The gal at the show told me about them this weekend said they are just a few dollars. I didn't even know they were there, and I'll be going to some right after I get back from Disney.

Thanks for the replies! I've been scrapping up a storm lately and just wanted to get some ideas - see what types of layouts others are using and that sort of thing..
I've got two books done already - 3 and 4 started.. I may just have to drag all this junk to Florida with me!! LOL
There's lots of really great ideas on the internet, but I don't have a printer up here to print out any of the info or ideas..
There are also lots of Yahoo forums where people "show" there stuff to get ideas from.
HP was at the convention, and they also have a lot of ideas:
This is a great site, and even though it's digital, you can get a lot of ideas:
Just put scrapbooking in a google search, and you'll never have time to go to bed again. They have lots of traditional and digital places that will show up, with tons of ideas.
ETA: Another great place I have:
Yup! I've already spent several VERY late nights browsing the sites I came across via a Google search.. The worst was the night I was up till 4 a.m..
I found a really nice Scrapbook store in Gloversville last week.. A little pricey, but they had just the item I needed and were having a 15% off sale..
Next year I'll be sure to buy tons of supplies down home before I come up here so I don't have to fork over an arm and a leg.. LOL
I know around these parts a lot of scrapbook stores have weekly workshops. I love going to creative memories workshops and you can locate consultants but going to their website and typing in zip code of area you want under locate a consultant.
A great internet group is disneyscrapers on yahoo groups.
I was looking more for the type of conventions where there would be suppliers selling their goods.. I have a friend in Connecticut that has been sending me Creative Memories items she's able to acquire for next to nothing so I was really interested in other suppliers..
