CHA Recap & CHA Freebie

Well, it's time to head home and although CHA was a blast and I met many great people and caught up with old friends, I'm exhausted and ready for my own bed. I hung out with Jen and Janice from Beach Scrapbooks and had a wonderful Italian dinner last night (Thanks John for the great tip!) Keep your eyes open details for some fun swaps that we will do with Beach Scrapbook's. Oh, and I must mention that the guys at QuicKutz are always a lot of fun (and so are Andrea & Amy!) to hang around with!

I added another slide show t catch you up on some of the things I saw at the show. I saw a lot of acrylic, die cut paper, boy, Halloween & Christmas lines.

Halloween - purple, lots of purple, die cut paper (think spider web paper anyone?), acrylic overlays & glitter!

Christmas - Lot's of die cut paper (beautiful snowflakes and more), glitter, traditional and non, and in between.

Boy collections - Speed Racer and more.

Basic Grey! 5 new collections, not all shipping at once this time! So you can spread the damage a little. We got a very, very early number!!! :) (Thanks AC!) All beautiful and something for everyone.

Birds & Owls & Butterflies - still everywhere but still creative and beautiful.

Maya Rd. - Outdid themselves. Incredible new chipboard and the heaviest acrylic books I've seen yet!

K&Company - Fans you will be very happy as it starts shipping, Halloween, Christmas, Amy Butler (my personal new favorite - wait till you see the new die-cuts), Thanksgiving, new additions to Ancestry ...Oh and Glitter Paper!

Pink Paislee - Love it! Halloween is subtle so you can use it for anything you want and we have a design team member coming to teach!

October Afternoon - 4 new lines and new stamps - another one of my favorites.

Cosmo Cricket - Another fun and "campy" line. Should already be on its way!

I almost forgot to mention, we did order adoption, twins, school (of course), EMT, Nursing, Fire Dept. as well as many others. These were some special requests. I will follow up with more details later.

I have to finish packing and load up the van to head home.

By the way, the Portillo's pics are for Kris, he'll know why.

I have a freebie for a lucky winner from anyone of the posts this past Thur through Monday night - so post away!

See you soon!
