Well, after a long day, a long drive, and a long sleep, here's the last set of CHA photos and other tidbits.
We had a super-productive and relatively un-stressful day, thanks to some expert planning and ordering by Chris, so we had time to do make-and-takes, watch some demos, even catch a magic act or two. But don't worry, there will be plenty of new goodies heading to the store ASAP! But first, some more people pics:
Amy Tan of amy tangerine has yet another winner of a line coming out with American Crafts, and we managed to grab her for a few photos (I love her skirt!).
I managed to meet one of my personal scrapbooking idols, Shimelle Laine (who came all the way from London to shop the show...and win a bunch of stuff [but that's another story]). Yet another cute outfit, too (scrappers are a stylish bunch!).
The ladies of Graphic 45 were in stunning costumes, as always -- the day before, they had on awesome kimonos, while Wednesday was all about being ladylike. Their booth is always dressed to the nines as well. :)
Super-cute friends of the store Jared and Jenni Bowlin paused for a chat and a picture (and I got some hot dress-shopping tips from Jenni).
And the dudes from My Mind's Eye are always up for some fun -- Margie took this photo and they kept making her laugh! (You'll have to ask her why next time you see her....)
Somewhere in the middle of all that, Katie and I stopped for a break at the Doodlebug booth, a new tradition. ;)
You didn't think I'd end without letting you in on a little bit of the gorgeous projects we saw around every corner, did you? Gold stars will go to anyone who correctly identifies the manufacturers of the products above -- just leave your guesses in the comments below!
This picture says, "Hey, we did it! Let's go home!" So that's just what we did. :)
Thanks for hanging out with me through all the show news. Next is the hard part -- waiting for all the new goodies to come in! Keep an eye on the blog and in the store for updates...it won't be long!
See you at Scrappy Chic! Rumor has it that Margie might be doing some CHA-inspired demos this Friday (from 5-7), so you can get inspired right away!
