Creating Keepsakes Convention - Charlotte

Fun in Charlotte

Three days at CKC in Charlotte was busy...busy...busy.  We took classes, attended crops and of course shopped on the vendors floor.  Can you believe a hobby like scrapbooking generates this much product (only a small sample I'm sure).  Of course we set a budget....$$......we only went over a little.
 We stayed at Hampton Inn UpTown, only a couple blocks from the convention center. The weather was cool (like Fall) and we enjoyed our walks.  We only had rain on the last day.  This is a picture of the fog on top of one of the downtown buildings.  Beautiful!

Everywhere you looked, there was something new and cool!  Here are some pages we made during our classes.

I also learned about "More Fabulous Flowers with Amy Tangerine" and "Backgrounds by You" by Nicole Peterson Designs. Close to My Heart was represented by Dr. Phil (consultant with CTMH)   It was a truly fun filled weekend and I got to spend it with my Daughter.  If you ever get the chance you should go to this event.   Happy Crafting everyone!
