Back from CHA!!

Wow! What a great trip we had. Spending time with Jess and Cindy is always wonderful. We bought lots of new goodies for Emma's Paperie and spent lots of girl time together. Oh, and we ate a TON!! It's going to take me a few days to get back into the swing of things, but in the meantime I wanted to pop on and share a few projects and pictures.

First up, are some cards I made for the Crate booth. I used the two new lines - Pretty Party and Storyteller.






I used the papers, stickers, chipboard and new tags. The colors are so fun and I love the patterns. I have so many ideas for what I want to do with these lines.
While I was at CHA, I got to meet the creative force behind Crate, Lisa. I was so excited to see my projects in the booth. Here I am posing with my cards. Yeah, I'm a dork!



Here is one of my favorite photos from the trip. We went to the Cheesecake Factory with the Webster's girls on Monday night. We laughed so much and ate some fabulous food. I love this shot, even though the lighting was horrible.



Here I am with Brandin in the Webster's Booth. It looked amazing, as always!



And, standing outside of the booth...


We ran into the Paper Crafts girls a few times. Sadly, Cath wasn't there. But, Flat Cath WAS!!




I was so glad the show was back in Anaheim. We went to Disneyland and California Adventure in the evenings. I love this picture of the three of us.



You might not be able to tell from my pics, but, we did spend a lot of time in the booths, too. I have some pics from there and I'll try and get another post up this weekend. Of course, Crate and Webster's were among my faves, but I also adored My Mind's Eye, Echo Park, Studio Calico and the new Heidi Swapp! GCD had some really cute lines and so did October Afternoon. We bought lots of goodies and I can't wait until they come into the store.

Well, that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Anabelle! I looked for you at CHA. Brandon told me you were there so I kept looking, but I never found you. Bummer! I really wanted to give you a big hug and say hello. I'm sorry we missed each other. Hopefully next time . . .

By the way, somebody told me that she always gets you and me confused because we look alike. I thanked her for the compliment. :)

I am sorry I didn't get to chat more! Darn customers, LOL ;) Wasn't the weather awesome? Beats East Coast winters for sure.

It was great seeing you and I loved every single thing in that Webster's booth! Not to mention Brandin is so awesome.

I didn't get to the Crate booth and kicking myself.

Zarah said...

Looks like a FAB time!!
And dork? No way!! I'd so pose with my cards too, had I been there!! Be proud, you deserve to be! :D

(Your cards are amazing.)

I have to say that you amaze me with your sweetness and kindness. You are so attentive to others, so supportive and loving... When you first came around to the Nook I was a liiiiiiittle bit scared of you. You are a STAR and I wasn't sure if you'd be "sweet or sour".
I could not have been happier to see that you are such a wonderful person.
Now, everytime I see that you've posted, I smile - because I know it's gonna be something kind and sweet.

You rock!
Thank you for making me smile.
