CKC 2011!

Well, the event of my year, Creative Keepsakes Scrapbooking Convention in Bellevue has finally been attended... It was everything I had hoped it would be and more- as usual! It is truly amazing how uplifting it is to be surrounded by some many crafty people, especially my dear friend Daphne.

Here we are after our first cup of coffee, about a ream of paper purchased, & participating in our first Make &Take of the day using Acrylic Boards.

Next it was off to my first class where I met the entertaining Sandi- who influenced a win in my direction! Yahoo (Little did I know I would end up being a BIG winner when the day was through)! It is so great meeting new friends while in the midst of a fast-paced project... note to Sandi's friends- she needs glue for christmas!
Here we are with Linda from Technique Tuesdays "Life is a Journey" mini-album class. 
And our Celebrity dream meet- Shelby! From Embelish It! I also enjoyed a chat with her husband Steve and dished on her upcoming Cruises... Talk about a dreamy convo!

Ahhh... it was a wonderful way to expel some creative energy that has been building up in anticipation of this weekend retreat. Now.
TO "WORK" (nothing this fun is real work :-o)!
Goals: Finish layouts I started in my 5 classes!
Finish the mini album and actually personalize it!
Surprise Daphne somehow!
Be on one of those cruises with Shelby next year!!!

Here is the first layout I was able to finish, using S.E.I. stickers I bought and a picture of Lawrence I had in my purse. Perfect!
