|Scrapbook Survivors around 5pm! (Cindy, Lynda, Terri, Kelly).|
Woo whooo!!! It's finally CKC time!!! Several friends and I attended the Creating Keepsakes Convention near Seattle yesterday, and had a total blast! Some of us took classes, while others shopped the vendor faire. Kelly and I carpooled and spent the ENTIRE DAY at the convention. We met up with Kate and her sister-in-law. I also saw friends and fellow crafters Terri and Lynda. I know our stampin' friend Deb was there, but we were so busy shopping and taking classes, that we never saw her!
Kate and I took "The latest and greatest with Basic Grey, Simple Stories, and Crate Paper", and enjoyed a FAST-PACED class. We nearly completed 4 pages, and have extra supplies to finish more. The rest of the day we shopped, grabbed a little lunch, shopped, shopped, and shopped some more!
I found some neat stamps at Technique Tuesday and The Stamps of Life. I enjoyed some make and takes, and shopping at Embellish It and Queen & Co. I even found some major deals at Scrapbuck and Scrap Mart. Can you imagine 2 packages of cookie-cutter dies by Quic-Kutz for only $10, total (I saw each clearanced out online for $11 apiece)? Or, getting 100 yards of grosgrain or sheer ribbon for only $2-$4??? I also got a grab-bag of bling for $2.99, which should last me for quite some time!
If you ever have the chance to go to a scrapbook expo, I definitely would recommend it! It's a fun day for all, and you may just find a few things that you may not normally find in your LSS (local scrapbook stores). ~Hoppy Crafting!!!
