{A layout and more CHA pics!}

First up, a layout I made for Scrapbook Daisies.
(cardstock: Bazzill Basics, alpha letters: Making Memories, twine: The Twinery, stick pin: Pink Paislee everything else American Crafts)
I cut out some of the clouds, then added adhesive foam squares. I love the added dimension it gives, without making the layout too bulky.

And now...a few more pics from CHA (click on the photos to see them up close!)
Loved the new collections from GCD Studios!


I had a little fun playing in the booth too ;)

Pink Paislee had a beautiful booth to show off their beautiful new collections,





One product I was really excited to see was the  i-magic ribbon cutter. It cuts and seals the edges of your ribbon all at the same time. No more fraying!
I know Imaginisce will be sending me one soon to use with my design team work, but after seeing it in person, I can't wait!! The best part, it's powered by 4 AA batteries!!

Prima (of course) had beautiful papers and flowers, and their samples are amazing!!!





Heidi Swapp is back! Her booth wasn't huge like it used to be years ago, but she does have a few things that caught my eye.


In between all the scrapbooking crazyness, I saw Tori Spelling introduce her new jewelry collection. I was a big 90210 fan way back when, so ya I had to stop and watch ;)


Crate Paper = Love!


Studio Calico has some great masks for misting and inking.





Ruby Rock-It is an Australian company that is fairly new to the states. Cute things!!




I know there are at least 8 companies that I got so busy chatting in their booth that I completely forgot to take pictures, so I don't have those to share ;) I really had a great time though! I met friends that I'd only "known" online, met new friends that were like kindred spirits, and caught up with old friends that I've missed so much.  Now I can't wait for all these wonderful things to arrive in the stores!! I've got my paper trimmer and I'm all ready to start creating!
As always, thanks for stopping by.
