CKC Convention

On Saturday, my SIL, Amy, and I went to the CKC convention in San Marcos. We were only able to get into one class because my surgery put off our registration- boo! And the one class was disappointing... but we still worked hard!

These were the cards, however the blank cards we were given to decorate were stark white... not the kraft color in the examples... so I got started but will finish up here at home with kraft cards. And when I am done I will post them with the helpful hints and tips we learned in the class.

Our success of the day was in the shopping... not in the budgeting, but the shopping. What did I buy you ask... well, I was blown away by the new LUSH line from My Mind's
Eye. And these pics do not do it justice...

The red on this page is lined with fine red glitter. It really is beautiful. I also bought a tag to go with it that reads "Home Sweet Home" My vision is a canvas for the new house.

This bird paper from the collection really brought tears to my eyes (not kidding) I instant thought of me and Adam and will do a black in white of us and make something for our bedroom.

Then I found the Pyrus Collection from Basic Grey. Woo-Hoo! These colors screamed my name and got me thinking the color pallet for the new house! I bought the 6X6 pack and a few 12x 12 sheets.

Don't cha love it?

Man, I am crazy about this line! So crazy, I bet I save this paper and never use it because I like it so much... Why do we do that?

Another favorite purchase were these cards from October Afternoon! Vintage beach... just what I need!

I do regret not picking up this paper...

and this paper. I was overwhelmed and wanted it all... Good thing we have Two Peas in a Bucket for on line shopping! They have EVERYTHING!

Lastly, my steal of the day. I found this Making Memories Advent Kit for $9.99... instead of the usual $15... and believe it or not... I already finished it! Don't worry... you will see it all finished when I post about how we will use it in December!
So now that I have new stuff... I have lots to work on this Sunday at the coffee crop at my local scrap shop!

Ooooh, all of it is great but I have to say I am stuck thinking about the Advent calendar. I collect them and that one looks like one I "need!"
