CKC Houston

I want to start by saying, if you haven't been to a scrapbook convention, RUN don't walk to your computer and sign up NOW! My friend Patty & I went to the Creative Keepsakes Convention (CKC) in Houston this past weekend. No hubby, no kids, no job...it was heaven! CK sure knows how to show a girl a good time. We took 5 classes, volunteered for the Saturday night crop & shopped. We even got to see my friends Laura & Howard from ScrapMart. It was Houston's first year to host CKC, so the crowds weren't as big as I expected.

I took three classes from QuickQuotes. I'll be carrying their products in the store soon, so I needed some displays! (how's that for a tax write-off?) One of their kits had paper that is not yet available to purchase! The kit from SEI is also a new product...I'll get pictures in here tomorrow with the scoop.(sshhh it's a secret)

Lance from Rusty Pickle taught our other class. We made a chipboard album & he taught us some really cool "techniques". Or just new ways to add stuff to your album. Whatever you want to call it, the finished product is awesome. It was the "Smiles" class. I love this hobby so much.

Steve is finally getting over his broncituss(not spelled right, but can't get this spell check to work). He's always been very active and is really tired of just laying around. I'm glad he is getting better. We have his company "Christmas Dinner" at the Polo Grill on Friday. (yes, Christmas is over, but we had to cancel it because of the ice storm)
Hope everyone got a chance today to put some adhesive on some paper.
