I am happy to say that I have registered for my scrapbooking classes and crop at the Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooking convention held at Valley Forge, PA at the end of July!! I had such a fantastic time with a wonderful group of gals last year. I cannot wait to attend this year.
My favorite vendors were Embellish It! (they carry a large assortment of Basic Grey) Mosaic Moments with Tammi Potter, Tattered Angels, and Quick Quotes. If you ever have the opportunity to attend a scrapbooking convention you should go!! **Oh one more thing-a little story to tell you. My friend Barbara and I were taking the Mosaic Moments class and I attended the Friday night crop late. When I caught up with my buds they informed me that they signed me up for a singing contest to win a Xyron sticker machine, the small Xyron adhesive machine, Tim Holtz grunge board, and refills for the machines. I thought they were pulling my leg-BUT THEY WEREN'T! So we sat at the table and had to come up with a song using the words, George Washington, Ruffled Grouse, Fireflies, milk, and white tailed deer! I will try to post a video of the contest-it was hillarious.....and WE WON! We had to sing in front of 400 people attending the crop-on stage-
Note to self: never overlap a class with the crop or else your friends will set you up LOL!!!
Scrapbooking convention with friends-PRICELESS

This is a picture of the album Carol made where Kelli (left) me (middle) and a gal who joined our table (right) sang our song. It was a hoot!
If you get a chance, check out my friend Carol's blog where she posted pictures of this fantastic album project of our trip.
