Tillman driving...which is an adventure of it's own!

So Tillman (the other half of KT2) and I have made an annual trip to Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Creating Keepsakes (CK) Convention for the past 4 years. We anticipate and plan for this trip for months! We have googled all the newest paper lines we want to search for, we have saved up extra cash, and booked a room & classes months in advance…all in preparation for “OUR” weekend away.

 

This year, some of the aspects of the actual convention were dissapointing BUT a weekend away with a great friend and more scrapbooking items than you can fathom always equals FUN! We left on Thursday and hit a local scrapbook store in Claremore, OK. This is a great little store and we found some great lines from Collage Press we hadn’t seen before – so many cute CuPcaKeS!!! I was very inspired before we even got to the convention. Anyway, we got checked in at the Renaissance Hotel where the convention is held. We realized we are becoming PROS at this!!! We arrived before the crowds of scrappers showed up, getting a primo room with a refrigerator so it was a perfect start. After our smooth check in we hit some of the other stores in the area as well as Michael’s.

One of our other favorites to do while in Tulsa is to EAT at Cheesecake Factory, so we did – TWICE! It was so yummy, everything they make is good. Perfection even. Our personal favos are Buffalo Blasts, Sweet Corn Cakes, Orange Chicken and Strawberry Shortcake. Those are our recos for your next visit to the Factory!

Very messy but creative class!

Back to scrapbooking…we took classes on Friday & Saturday and shopped the Vendor Fair filling our minds with new skills and plenty of ideas. We headed home Saturday afternoon after hitting “A Memory to Scrap” in Broken Arrow, OK, it was a fabulous store with a friendly and knowledgable staff. We purchased our last scrapping goodies before heading back to Bentonville, AR. Another great year of friends, fun and scrapbooking!

  1. Ok, my sis and I go every year since it started and we too were a little disappointed in some of the stuff this year. So much so we didn’t even take any classes! 😦 I’m in TX, so I’m volunteering at the San Marcos convention. I’m glad you had fun and had a weekend away. That is the best part, oh and scrapping and talking ’till the wee hours of the night!
