I seem to be so busy working on "Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker LLC", that I haven't really had the chance to be very creative lately so............. my sweet husband sent me to the Creating Keepsakes Convention in St. Louis for 3 days!! This took place last weekend and my birthday was last Friday so it was a perfect time to chill out and just play. And that's excatly what I did... I took some FUN classes like "Boy Fun" and "Girl Fun" that Kim from Keller's Creations, taught. Not only is she a sweetheart, but the 2 wall hangs I made in her class are adorable! I'll post them tomorrow. (and if you want to check out her store you can go to I went to the Friday night crop and sat with 2 ladies that I became instant friends with, and we've even emailed a few times since I've been back home. (Hi...Dawn and Julia!!) Also met up with 2 of my "online" friends, Steph and Christie, Hi to both of you too! We went to lunch and did a little shopping. But, I have to say that the best part of my weekend was that I entered CK's card contest and used my new stamp set that I created, from my first paper line called, "My Sweet Cherry Pie", this line will debut this summer, and it won!! It was so exciting and I felt like it gave me a little validation that I might be on the right track with my paper line and the matching stamp set that goes with it!!!
The next best part of my weekend was I kinda skipped the Saturday night crop and ordered room service, and scrapbooked until 1 am.... I watched 3 movies on HBO and just played and played!!!!!! (I'll post everything I made tomorrow.)
Well I guess that's it for now. See ya soon, Nikki

Whoo hoo! Congrats on winning the card contest. I remember your card (I was one of the judges), and I thought it was SO cute. :)

I'm glad you had a good time at CKC and happy belated birthday!

Steph-I didn't take a picture of it... I know I know, how could I not??? But, I did recreate the exact card when I came home. I was told there was a possibility that it could get published so I didn't want to post it on my blog just yet!! (But it's for sure going to CHA this July with me and will be hung right next to the Stamp set that it came from!)
If I haven't heard anything by the time my website goes online then it may be posted there too.
Thanks for your comments, Nikki
