CHA post 2, a little late

Sorry this post is late but I got sick immediately after CHA on Tuesday (at least I made it back to the hotel) and today is the first day I felt human enough to actually post… I feel like a cat – I didn’t know humans could sleep that much!

So, my apologies for the delay…. I wanted to share some more highlights from CHA…. With pictures this time!

So if you read my previous post, you know that I got a “sneak” preview on Sunday, and then went back for the full day with a friend.  She promises to write a guest post as well…

So we had huge plans for the day – to conquer the whole map… It was impossible….

We made a valiant attempt; but at least were able to hit the ones we wanted to see.  You definitely need at least 2 full days to see everything… And that doesn’t even allow for time for “oohing and aching” and doing all the fun projects…

We went to a non-member breakfast… I think I’ll be joining CHA…  I think there’s a lot to learn from being a member…  Then we hit the floor when the doors opened at 10 am…

We hit the Ranger booth first.  I will admit, I am uber intimidated by Tim Holtz stuff.  It looks amazing, but it’s so not my style and I just can’t get my mind around it and figure out how to make it look good.. but there was a lot of cool stuff.  I don’t know if it was my lack of coffee (the lines were way too long) but I thought this was a great layout of coffee!
We went back later when Tim Holtz was doing a demo – I tried to snap a photo but there was a huge crowd around him.. he’s definitely a celebrity!  That’s him behind all the other people trying to take photos!
Then we hit the Scor-Pal booth (  I’m a huge fan of my scor-pal.  We got to see some of their new products (that aren’t out yet)…..  Trend alert – bottle caps are quite popular this year!!!  Aren’t these great looking?
Then we saw a great storage for cling stamps (comes in its own case) at my stamp box –
Check out this card – so simple; but really cute.  I love how her black pen lines really add accent to the card!
Made this simple card at the We R Memory Makers booth – it was super easy – using a ginormous punch.  Punches are super popular this year… Plus I love the cutie patootie saying!  I’ve been saying that a lot lately!!!
Saw an amazing paper cutter that I’m still pondering…
Saw some great adhesives & cleaners by
Also got to use some starbursts sprays from Lindy’s Stamp Gang
I have a huge bag of brochures and flyers to look through… When I feel better….
Hope you have a great Friday!
