My CKC Haul and an Award

Morning everyone!

I wanted to share my CKC haul with you all.
I had a blast at my first convention. I saw lots of great products...tons of super cute papers and got some great ideas.

I did stick to a budget so that was great and of course picked up some great things

I got this whole set of Fiskar cutting templets and the cutting blade with mat. I was impressed with the demo on these products and I am a huge fan of Fiskar products anyways :)

A few of the papers and paper packs I found. I just LOVE this Monsterville paper by Sei and the Too the Moon line from Fancy Pants.

Lastly I found some 8x8 albums which I do plan on using :) as well as a new favorite embellishment of mine~The Candi's. These are so much fun to use! I also picked up some brads and eyelets from the Eyelet Outlet. They have these quicklets which are eyelets you can set with a cool is that?!?! Lastly I have been searching high and low for seam binding and I wasn't ready to by some online...but I found it here! I bought 10 yards and plan on making some of my own crinkle ribbon with it. I will let you all know how that goes when I do it.

Lastly I want to share an award I received from 2 very talented crafters!
