I am EXHAUSTED!
Spent two days at CHA and saw it all, many times over.
Thought I would post just a few photos while I have a moment, but there are about 200 photos of CHA, so I am sure there will be many, many sneak peeks and lots of opinion coming your way over the next few days.
ALSO...stay tuned because I have a CHA giveaway coming this week, gotta empty the bags and pull all the stuff together first though.
CLICK PICTURES TO ENLARGE AND GET A BETTER LOOK!
First off....Fancy Pants Designs
New rubons and New stamps (no pictures, sorry)
New transparencies, very cool!Sample with new papers, transparencies and chipboard.Then, we headed to Autumn Leaves.
New Rhonna Farrer Rubons...Very Cool and many in that little tin.Felt ribbon...everybody had this now, one great idea that popped up last year and now it seems everyone has copied it!
Anyone want to guess what this shape is supposed to be?
The girl who took our order in their booth didn't even know what it was!
Weird flower, perhaps?
They have more shaped paper too.
Lots of buttons still, which is cool.
New clear stamps, love those journaling blocks.
Journaling seemed to be a big focus this year, lots of companies had journaling stamps, tags, stickers, papers...huge push for people to write more.
I like it!
New bags with the Foofala design, totally ugly.
New gelly powder and gelly gems.
Oh and new scented embossing powders that were really smelly, 6 different scents!
They had some really great samples and I just love their script alphabet on this layout.This set totally looks like the new SU Pick a Petal, doesn't it?!And as a bonus, while I was standing at the gel-a-tins booth waiting for a chance to try their clear stamps (we tried many, many clear stamps this weekend!), I spotted.....
Michele!Seriously, I don't really know how I even recognized her from a distance and when I walked up to approach her, I really wasn't positive it was her, but I was hoping. (I woulda looked like a complete dork if it wasn't)
Thankfully it was and she is just the cutest, skinniest (I need the secret), friendliest person and exactly like I thought she would be.
We will definitely meet up again, I have a feeling we could gab for hours.
I never even got to try out those stamps because I was too busy blabbering to Michele.
Love when I actually meet my blogger friends and they are even better in person.
More CHA coming....
