{CHA - a Scrapbookers Dreamland}

I've just spent the past 2 days at CHA (the Craft and Hobby Association) Trade Show at the Anaheim Convention Center. For a scrapbooker, it's like a dreamland! Walking from booth to booth, seeing all the NEW products that will be coming out in the next few months, you can't help but want to sit down in the isle with your paper trimmer and adhesive and starting creating right there!
This was my first year going as a Professional Crafter, and I must say, placing those first few orders was so exciting. I'm sure there were angels singing : )
I had a great time connecting with old friends and meeting new friends too. Heres' a few pics to share. (and as usual, most are very dark due to the lighting in the convention center)

For those of you that have been scrapbooking for awhile, remember the company Lil' Davis?? They had a cute little pic of their daughter Davis on all their packaging quite a few years back. That's Davis on the right in the pic above, she's 9 1/2 now!! It was so great to see Brian and Tricia, and see they are back with their new company called Epiphany Crafts.
Ok, now it's off to pack. School gets out early tomorrow, and no school on Friday, so we're headed to Grandpa and Grandma's for the weekend to do some skiing. I bought Gracie the cutest snow suit today, she looks like a pink marshmallow ; )
Have a great weekend!

I wish I could have attended cha too. Thanks for sharing your pictures, I am so excited for all the new supplies to arrive in my store.
p.s. the layout you did with your sons and daughter is priceless.
