Charlotte CKC

Hey Everyone, I went to my first convention. I attended CKC in Charlotte on Aug 13, 2010 and I have to share my experience with you. This will be a long post mostly pictures.

So here is some feedback on the classes I took:

Boxxer (fri) - This is a lecture class. I learned some good tips & tricks in this class. Angie (she held the class) was funny.They have a new Disney collection thats super hot. They gave a ton of product for us to take home. They had a free make-n-take at there booth and nice coupons. I would buy from them in the future. Here are the products we recieved in the class (the flowers are missing from the picture).

Flower Tech Class (fri) - Megan H taught this class. I was super excited to meet her she is a great editor and true sweetheart (she loved the gift I gave her). We learned how to make about 5 - 6. I learned techniques I'll defintly use later in my crafts. I will post up the layout when I finish the full layout. All in all I think this was a great class. Megan did a great job teaching this class. We learned how to use the I-top tool (kool product).

Then I was off to the Vendor Show I took my cuz with me she did a few cute make-n-take cards. I got her a few things to get her into scrapbooking. Then I did some shopping. I finally got some flower soft, so I'm really excited to use it. I learned more about it at one of the make-n-takes. There were aleast 3 or 4 vendors that had dollar supplies. Scrapbuck was one of my fav stops.

The Convention CenterA sky view of the vendor fair.Here is what I got from the vendor fair, all on the couch.The Best deals at the Convention for me was .......

1) The CK Christmas Card kit with 30 cards and a bunch of other things for only $10 dollars.2) Scrapbook creations had Hero Arts Clear Stamp set for $5.00. Some layouts and kool pics I just had to share with you guys.Boxxer ScrapbookTechinque TuesdayPretty Flowers (close up)Motivet rubber stamps (super adorable)
Later that day I brought Kayla back with me to pick up something. She'll be crafting with me sooner then she thinks.

There is my trip to CKC in Charlotte. I had a blast, meet some new friends, and got some really kool new products. Thanks for stopping by.
