Good Stuff

I've had a wonderful productive, fun, exciting, fufilling weekend and the best part about it is that I still have today. Who knows what the day will bring.


Vane and I had the best time at CKC on Friday. We didn't take any classes but we went for a little bit of shopping. We found the best supplies you can't find at our LSS so that's always a plus. The venue this year was a lot smaller but that's ok because it means we didn't spend as much money. Even though we didn't take any classes I learned a couple of cool techniques from the vendors. I learned that when you stamp on your page, you can add Inkssentials Glossy accents to your design and when it dries it makes your stamp 3 dimensional. Cool, I tried it and I loved it. Second, I will definitely be using stamps more often because I bought a stamp cleaner from Technique Tuesday and it makes the whole stamping thing a lot easier. Love it... Third, I made a cute make & take tag and I learned how to stamp on acetate (I think it was that), I distressed and used a new adhesive that is awesome but I can't remember the name. Ughhh...



Sorry, I can't get the picture to face horizontal. Technical difficulties...

In the evening we met up with Nancy and Pascale. They are from the Netherlands but I'm sure you knew that because she is very popular in the blog world. We had such a wonderful evening with them. It's funny because we broke up into two groups, the boys and the girls. It was fun to talk about everything under the sun. We went from online friends to friends IRL... (LOL)






On Saturday, I shillacked (my niece calls this relaxing and it has stuck to me). I went to visit my Mom and my Grandmother and D wanted to sleep over so I came home and went to dinner with my DH and we watched movies. He went to bed but I couldn't because I was inspired to create so I finished my OLW layout, create a layout using a sketch and started on a mini album. Check out my layouts...




I'm off to take my family to the port for their family vacation. Have a wonderful Sunday peeps and a great week.


BTW, I'm so proud that I've written so much today. Peace Out!!!

I'm glad you had a great time at CKC. Now, I wish I would have gone!

I was disappointed with the clases last year, so that's why I didn't go this year!

Cute LOs!

Hi Ady,
love your layouts! Sounds like you had fun shopping on the weekend. I wish I would have known about CKC being in Ft. Lauderdale - I may have gone - but then again - its probably a good thing I did not spend any more money. Take care,
Michelle P.
