  141. Maryann Maltman says:

    I look forward to it EVERY YEAR!!! The only day I can go into a place with my wheelchair and hubby chuaffeur and know that it’s my special day! Normally shopping for Scrappy items is followed by, “is this going to take long?” and “Hurry up!” Expo is MY day, neither of those questions is allowed and I’m a very happy scrapper!

  142. Michele - Inclan says:

    This would be a great birthday gift to my sister-in-law

  144. Nancy Gail says:

    Grapevine, TX here we come! Can hardly wait for this years expo. I learned so much last year!!

  145. Jodie Chapdelaine says:

    I have been trying for so long to get back in to scrapbooking. I miss scraping so much. Here is to 2017 and starting back up again. Would love to go to the expo. Thank you.

  146. Tammy Whitley says:

    I go to the show every year in Orlando. It has become part of my life and something I have a blast going to!!! Its the best part of the year!!!! I have made so many friends with the vendors and they all know me by name….what does that mean????? LOL!!!! I would be tickled pink to win the tickets!!!!

  147. Cris Barnes says:

  148. Simone says:

    I would love to win tickets for the show in Puyallup, WA! I always wanted to go and never had the chance either because of illness or other engagements. I hope I get to go in June!

  149. Ramona says:

    I have never been to a scrapbook expo, however I have heard a lot of people talk about an expo that they attended. I have just been getting into cardmaking and scrap booking since retirement. I would love to win tickets to attend.

  150. Mardell says:

    It’s been a couple years since my daughter and I spent the day at the Expo. We’d love to win a pair of tickets for Milwaukee’s event!

  151. Gloria Sperring says:

    I didn’t think I’d ever get to the end of these comments! I don’t blame you’ll for wanting free tickets. I do to. I love to go to the Expo again. My husband and I try to go every year. He enjoys buying me things and I enjoy meeting people and seeing all the new items that we can’t live without! And I won’t lie, I love it when my husband buys me craft things that I or he can’t live without! Thank you for this chance to win free tickets!

  152. Kelly Bexley says:

    I used to wish that Duluth was sooner but now I love seeing everyone’s videos showing what they bought, what vendor and how much. I love all the videos but when you guys say when, where and how much it makes it so much easier to shop. Thank you so much for doing that, by the way! LOL

  153. Pat C. says:

    I love scrap booking and card making! I have never been to an Expo before as I am a retired teacher, and, the income dropped drastically when I was no longer teaching. I simply haven’t been able to afford going to an Expo. It would mean the world to me to go to one! Our local scrapbook shops have all closed, and people in the area who used to offer card making classes no longer do. It would be absolutely WONDERFUL to go to an Expo and be inspired!!

  154. Vicky Rodgers says:

    I would love the opportunity to attend a show. I wish they were more wheelchair and scooter friendly. I am going to try and make the one in Anaheim this April. Good luck to the winner.

  157. Samantha says:

    Would love to attend one – I’ve never had the opportunity. Of course, I’m becoming such a product hoarder that it might be dangerous to go!

  158. Kathy Hales says:

    I am so excited – I get to join my 3 sisters at the Orlando expo this year! They have attended the last few years but I was not able to come. So happy the stars aligned and we can have a fun sisters weekend!

  159. Cindy Horvath says:

    Would love to win – winning means the money I don’t spend on tickets, I spend on the floor. 🙂

  160. Dawn Wester says:

    I have never attended one yet but would like to go. I have low vision so I do not drive in big cities hence winning TWO tickets would be great so I could have a friend take me:)

  161. Martha says:

  168. Kassiopia Judkins says:

    I’ve never had the pleasure of attending a Stamp & Scrapbook Expo. I live in Vancouver, WA and have always wished I could attend the expo’s when they are in Portland, OR. I would love to take my mother! She’s so crafty and talented, and she’s recently gotten into cardmaking. So thank you for giving someone a chance to win 2 free tickets, and good luck to everyone!

  169. Heather C. says:

  179. Stacey says:

    I haven’t been able to go for the last couple of years. I don’t love to go back to the Atlanta Expo!

  180. Donna Wilkoski says:

    Hello and Happy new year. The scrapbook expo is such a great event. New techniques, new products, great vendors and of course interacting with fellow scrapers. You have to go to understand! I stress hope I win tickets. But either way I am going.

  181. Lynn says:

    I go to the shows in Anaheim and Ontario every year! I love them and can’t wait for them to come around.

  182. Susan says:

    I used to go to the Expo every year in Mesa, AZ but then we moved to CA and u haven’t been in 3 years! Would love to go to the one in Anahem this year!

  185. DeDe says:

    The ideas and products at the 1 expo I went to last year had so many great ideas my head wanted to explode! Lol

  186. Lee Anne Chase says:

    I will be attending the Orlando event. I am really looking forward to getting back into scrapbooking. I have lost touch for a year or so. Been very sick, but feeling better and cannot wait to awaken the creative side of photos. So many to get caught up…I’m very excited….yeah!

  187. Lori Kay says:

    I look forward to this event each year in Grapevine. Planning to take my new neighbor this year as she’s just getting started in scrapbooking. Thought she would like to take some classes to help her.

  188. Lenora says:

    Mesa AZ expo is a long way off but I’ll be there with my sisters. I, too would like to win tickets.

  189. Cindy says:

    I would LOVE to win tickets…but sadly, Utah got bypassed on the calendar for 2017. So I have no idea how I would get to go or where I would go if I did happen to win…but can’t blame a girl for trying.

  190. Deena Morris says:

    So glad you are coming back to Mesa, AZ again this year! LOVE this expo! Thanks for continuing to come to AZ.

  197. charlotte zweigoron says:

    I teach a paper crafts class at our local park center and always get a group to meet at the EXPO in Duluth, GA. Unless I have a drawing for that second ticket, I think I’d have to use it for my husband, who comes along to carry my purchases, as well as running the other ladies purchases and mine back to our cars when we get overloaded..! Needless to say, my ladies think he is the greatest and would probably vote to give him the ticket…

  198. Arlene says:

    We have a long wait till the Ontario Expo. I’m busy using things I bought at the last one. Now finding more things to buy next time.

  203. Kathy says:

    The month of January is traditionally dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus. After the Blessed Virgin Mary conceived her Child by the Holy Spirit, the angel Gabriel appeared to St. Joseph and instructed him that the Child’s name should be called Jesus, meaning “God Saves”. According to Jewish law, on the 8th day after his birth a male child was circumcised, received his name, and became a full member of God’s covenant people. According to the old Roman liturgical calendar, the Feast of the Circumcision of Jesus was celebrated on January 1st, eight days after Christmas, the same day that he was given his sacred name. Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Mother of God on January 1st and honor the Holy Name of Jesus on January 3rd. For Catholics, Jesus’ sacred name is the object of a special devotion symbolized by the monogram “IHS”, (sometimes called a Christogram), which is the first three letters of the Greek spelling of Jesus’ name.I would love to go to the Gapevine expo. I’ve never been to an expo, sounds like fun!

  204. Sarah Peyton says:

    I am beyond excited to attend Scrspbook Expo in Chantilly this year with my mom and sister. We can barely contain ourselves when we first walk through the Expo doors. Scrapbook expo is the only convention we attend and we are so psyched for this year.
