Home from CHA!

I am home from CHA! What a blast!!! It was wonderful to meet old friends, meet online friends for real, and meet new friends!! There was tons of new product to drool over too!!

The Stamper's Dream Girls!!! Me, Tosha Leyendekker, Michelle Rodgers, Laurie Schmidlin. We made a scene in the Spellbinders booth, but hey, we were SO excited to meet in real life!!! Isn't Laurie's hair just DARLING? I had more fun getting to know them and seeing what catches their eye. Amazingly talented women!

You can see how happy I am to meet up with Lynn Mercurio again! She is SO super sweet!!

THE Suzanne Dean! She is too cute! She totally inspires me with how she uses Copics! It was great to meet her in person!!
(good grief, I hate all these photos of me...what a dork!! )
Speaking of sweet, here is Adela Rossol. There were WAY too many cameras going off while we took this one.
I also got to meet (no photos, these were enough!!! :))
Jennifer Buck
Maren Benedict
AJ Otto
Brooke Lien
and so many more wonderful people!
New Jenni Bowlin. Beautiful! Lots of great mini (4x4) papers and embellishments. This all fit in perfectly with the trend towards shabby chic that was so prevalent at the show.

New Fancy Pants. Cute papers, but these colors were also everywhere. Fun and fresh!

Great new Thickers from American Crafts! Can you ever have enough? Great new fonts too!

These American Crafts Thickers are fabric-corduroy! :)

This photo doesn't do justice to the 7gypsies booth!! It was gorgeous!!
I will bring you more photos tomorrow of my FAVORITE, FAVORITE things at CHA, including the new Spellbinders Impressabilities, JustRite's new stampers/stamps, Basic Grey, Flower Soft, Unity Stamps, and more! thanks for stopping by!!
oh, and can you please vote for me and my layout again HERE thanks!!!

Welcome Home!! Missed you! Bet it feels good to see the little man (and the big man too). You had me at Jenni Bowlin but you really secured my love for you when you said "fabric corduroy". Wheeeee!!!!!!!!!
