The countdown to CHA is on!!

Wahoo!! I can't believe it is only 5 days until I leave for CHA!! I am SO excited I can hardly stand it!! I am looking forward to seeing the new product, AND meeting my Stamper's Dream team members, Michelle, Tosh, Laurie, and Carolyn!!!
Let's hope the weather is warmer in California than in Minnesota! :)

I love the new Chairs For You set from Flourishes. They are so much fun! Plus, there are some really cute sentiments.
I colored the chairs in first and got lucky on the paper and ribbon matching. :) I wanted to make the cardstock more interesting, so I got the flourish from the Papertrey Ink Remember set. I love that flourish.
Then I wanted a stripe for the top cardstock background, but didn't have one, so I improvised with the longest flower stem.
have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by! :)

These stamps are precious; I have to say though, they wouldn't be near as cute w/out your beautiful shading. I cannot believe what a difference that can make in the look!
