CKC Goodies~

I love going to the CKC shows; the DD always goes with me and we have so much fun! For the past 2 years Westley (now 15 months) has gone with us, lol, and he is such a joyful little boy that it makes it all that much more fun!

While I don't have a video camera, I thought you might like to see some of the gobs of things I bought over the past 2 days.

First is this Rubber Stamp Pad from Darice. It is 11 x 17 inches, and .5 inches thick. it may well become my favoritest thing from this show. I've already stamped lots of things on it today, and it works perfectly! Yay! I just wish it had a grid on it, lol.

Alex took 2 Copic classes, I did not take any. Since she doesn't have many Copics, after her classes we went right to the vendor that I knew had all of the colors. I think I bought 13 at the show. Unfortunately, as we made our way around the vendor floor, we found cheaper Copics, but those vendors didn't have all of the colors. Once we found cheaper ones, she bought more.

I took a great class with Strictly Scrapbooking using My Mind's Eye papers. For $28.00 we made 5 single pages, using all different line. After the class I went to their booth and bought a prepackaged kit to make a second page for each of the single pages we had done. The kit was $25.00, so all told I have 10 pages for $52.00. Not sure if that is an ok price or not, but there are leftovers, and the papers and pages are soooo pretty!

These pages use Stella & Rose, papers in mint and soft orange- so pretty! I know I have used a couple of these photos already in Wes's baby book, but the colors matched the Stella & Rose papers so well I just had to use them again.

The matching embellishments indicate these papers were meant to be feminine, but the colors are actually neutral, so I just left off the girly sentiments and made baby pages.

I'll try and get more done this week, and show you more things I bought!

I have one of those pads and wish it had a grid on it too. I don't use it very often because of that, and I wonder what the purpose is really. Can you remind me so that maybe I'll use it to it's full potential now?
