CKC 2009

Another year of the Creating Keepsakes Convention is over *tear*.  This year Brandi and I had a great time!!  We decided to make it a girls get away weekend and stay that the Bellevue Hilton where the crops were taking place (convention was at Meydenbauer Center).  We checked in on Friday night before the crop and were informed we had been upgraded to the “Executive Level” floor. 

We had no idea what that meant, so they went on to tell us we got breakfast in the mornings at their “Executive Level” lounge along with 2 appetizers each evening.  The coolest part for us was the fact we needed the room key to get to the “Executive Level”.  So each time we’d enter the elevator to go to our room we’d have to slide our room key in a lock thing and then it would light up the floor we were on!  How cool is that!  Yep, Brandi and I don’t get out much so were excited to feel so important!

Both nights I accomplished 5 layouts (8 pages) and Brandi finished 7 layouts (11 pages).  Apparently Brandi was on a roll the two nights and finished a whole heck of a lot more then I did!  But I’m happy with the ones I did!

I scrapped three layouts for Julia of Brooke and then both Brandi & I did Emmalee layouts to get some of her in their family album!  Currently it’s like 3 full albums of just Madison!  So poor Emmalee could use a few herself!

CKC09 - Triplets
Brandi one day had the girls and was getting ready to go out with them.  After she buckled Emma into her carseat, she had her back turned to them for a few moments and when she turned around found Emmalee all tucked in between Madison’s baby and Minnie Mouse all wrapped up in Madison’s blankie!

Okay that’s it….that’s what we accomplished this weekend!!  Tomorrow’s Monday and the start of another week!  Oh…Brandi & I will be going back next year to CKC, if you want more information go to their website
