CKC-Manchester, NH 2008

This weekend was the Creating Keepsakes Convention. Though I was not taking any classes and I really do not have any $$ to spend, I did not want to miss out. So My friend Deb, Bryant and I headed up to Manchester to check it out. I have to say that Bryant was a good boy for the most part. We got to do a couple of make-n-takes and he LOVED that!

This is my friend Deb and I. We always have a good time.

This is my BFF Stacy and her co-worker friend Sarah. Sarah, I found out is a HUGE David Cook fan too. She totally gets it. So of course I really liked this girl!!

Here is Deb and I with the FABULOUS Debbie Hill. Pam we missed you!! We really need to all get together and scrap REAL SOON!!

I LOVE this pic of Debbie, Debbie H and I! Debbie H. I put it in Black & White just for you! :-)

Okay, so I was really planning on spending NO $$, but I did come across this. I have been wanting the Dude papers by Prima for months. I only bought one sheet of each and one other piece of paper that completes my Kaiser paper Rough & Tough line. In total I spent $5. I was happy with that! My friend Deb on the other hand...we won't go there. LOL!

I did see Teresa Collins new Travelogue line. It truly is exquisite in person!! There was not much of it left and I have to say, what was left had been handled quite a bit. It was not in the best shape. Bent and beat up. I like my paper pristine! I will definately be getting this later! This will be perfect to document my vacation.

These are a couple of make-n-takes from the local scrapbook stores and a cool glitter demo sample:
All in all we had a GREAT time.
It was good to just get out and enjoy the day!

Because, WE had to get home for this:
The Nascar All Star race. It is a 'no points' race, but it is a huge deal! The winner gets a Million Bucks and huge bragging rights. It is very COOL! Not all drivers get to be in it. You have to have won a race. The others who haven't, get to have a a pre-race and the 1st and 2nd place winners get to transfer in to the All Star. There is also a fan vote to get another driver into the race who did not earn his way in. This year the fan vote went to Kasey Kahne and guess what?? He won the whole darn thing! The million bucks. The bragging rights. Very COOL! I am happy for him! :-)

Yes, it was a GREAT time!! Nice to see you Deb H! I LOVE that picture of us! Stacey, it was nice to see you again too! Can't wait to do my project. I surely can't say that I only spent $5.00, but, as it goes I kept it under $50.00! (The old extra zero, routine)LOL!! Thanks for the great pictures, I too always have a good time with you Dawn. Looking forward to our crop girls, so lets plan. (Hi Pam!)
