Creating Keepsakes Convention 2010

Yesterday, my Mom and I drove to Des Moines for a fantastic, fabulous, fun day of scrapping at the latest Creating Keepsakes Convention (CKC). It's a three day scrapbooking event that has various scrapbooking vendors and classes all for the obsessive scrapbooker like myself. This trip required me to get up at 3:45 am, but it was all worth it!!
This picture is from the last CKC we went to in Kansas City, which was over four years ago. We even got to meet the founder of CK, Lisa Bearnson, who has now since retired (and done quite well) from the industry.
The below photo is what a class looks like. This was my Mom's SEI class. Notice she's the one who likes to stand while she's creating. This particular class was two hours long, but everyone completed a 12 inch album in that time. I took 4 classes (one hour each) and my mom completed three.
Here's a picture of one of the classes called City Life by Heartstrings Designs that both Mom and I took together. We don't mind separating and taking classes that interest only us.
It was a 16 hour event (driving included) and it was a blast! I'm hoping to attend the CKC in Kansas City this Fall. Anyone want to tag along?

Amy: It looks like fun! I'm interested! I'm going to go look at what the dates are and see if it's "do-able" for me. I get emails from C.Keepsakes about these CKC things all the time and have wondered about them, so maybe it's time for me to "jump in" :-)

Glad you had a good time though I can't imagine there's a class left that could teach YOU anything!

Agree with Mindee!
Amy your scrapbooking is so wonderful, I wonder if YOU could teach the classes?
