"Open, Open, Open" CKC Convention!!!

How do you sum up the MOST FUN a papercrafting girl can have in just 3 letters & one word: CKC Convention! OMG, I just cannot believe how utterly wonderful, exciting & fantastic it was! In case you can't tell, this was my first trip to a CKC Convention & I hope there will be many more! The classes were phenomenal; we learned so much & the product you took home to play with, the many prizes & unbelievable vendors & products available literally overwhelmed me & "made my head hurt". I mean that in the best way possible, though I truly had a splitting headache when I finally got home last night. That was partly because I had too much fun to stop & eat properly yesterday & because I was way too excited to get enough sleep before we went.
Shown above are my 2 dear friends Gwen on the left & Ilene on the right, anxiously awaiting the opening of the vendor faire Friday morning. We weren't anxious or anything, but we arrived @ 7:00 a.m. & our first class wasn't until 8:30!!! ;-) Truthfully, none of us drives to downtown Phx. much, so we made sure we allowed plenty of time so as to not miss a moment of fun! Ilene's the main person responsible for getting me into cardmaking in the first place & Gwen is totally responsible for getting me into blogging & I love them both dearly for it!!! Gwen's probably going to flog me if I don't start creating & posting like mad these next many days because she knows what I spent the bulk of my Stimulus Check on!
And that's without even mentioning the added bonus of the Bazzill Warehouse Sale here this weekend! Yeah, I know, they tried to totally kill me off all in one weekend, but I still love both CKC & Bazzill anyway!!! I did manage to hit the Bazzill sale for a bit on Sat. a.m. before I returned with Gwen to convention. I won't even tell you what a gigantic savings I got because I really don't want you to hate me! Suffice it to say, it was more than worth the sacrifice I made to get up really early 2 days in a row to "steal" 275 sheets of gorgeous 12" x 12" Bazzill (including a bit of their scalloped & punched-edge) papers!
Now I'm totally on product overload, which surprisingly often causes me to NOT be able to create -- I know I'm weird; what can I say?! Somehow I'll try to muddle through this "awful dilemma"!!! ;~}
