Back from CHA!

I'm HOME! ;) I got in at midnight last night. And I had the BEST time. Cindy, Jessica and I shopped, ate, laughed and played. It was so much fun getting to spend time with them. I also had the chance to meet up with lots of other people for the first time. It was so great meeting them in person!! Aside from one little blister, I did pretty well. I think the fact that the show is on the east coast made it a lot easier. In the past, I've taken the red eye home from California and am DEAD for the next few days.

So, where to begin. There were lots of great new products. It was so much fun helping Cindy pick out what to get at Emma's. She's getting tons of new things. Most of it will be shipping soon, too!

I thought I'd share my top 5 favorites. Unfortunately, I'm having problems uploading pics from my camera, but you'll get the idea with the images...

First is Basic Grey's Nook and Pantry line. I'm in LOVE with this one!!! The samples at the BG booth were to die for!! If I can figure out what's up with my camera, I'll post them later.



I also loved the new Victoria line from 7 Gypsies.



This next one is from Crafty Secrets. They have little sets that you can make mini books or other items from. The samples are darling. I love that the sets come with chipboard, papers, and stamps. CUTE!!



Next up is Pink Paislee. I absolutely adore the new lines. And I'm so excited that I was able to make some layouts for the booth using it. I love all four collections, but Cupid is my absolute favorite!

(I borrowed this from another site. ;) )

Finally, there was Prima. I can't even tell you how gorgeous their stuff was!! The booth was dripping with inspiration and pure eye candy! The layouts were ALL little works of art! Here are just a couple of things that I loved.




I'll leave you with a couple of my Pink Paislee layouts. This first one uses the Mistletoe & Co. line.




And this one uses the Cupid Line..





Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day. ;)

Fabulous layouts, Anabelle!
I saw some pictures of the Pink Paislee displays at CHA on another blog and when I saw that flowers & fondue page, I thought: "I wonder if Anabelle made that..." And now I see that you did! Ha!
Glad you had such a good time at the show!

Thanks for the lovely peeks of what to expect in the near future. I am drooling over the basic grey. It looks like such a fun line. In fact all of then are very appealing.
Your layouts are great, and I wish I had been there too. Rest, and put your feet up!

Welcome back Anabelle!

I just got my first glimps of that BG Nook and Pantry the other day and I cannot even tell you how badly I want it!

Gorgeous LOs, those Pink Paisley lines are going to be a must have too!
