TESC 77 and CHA Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage

Yay... it's sketch day! Another fun sketch from Taylor.
Here we are at CHA. I always love any chance I get to spend time with this girl ( and her sweet mom)

I made my card for this week, with cardstock from Worldwin, patterned paper from Me& My Big Ideas, and rubons from Creative Imaginations.

Added some foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives from 3L for a little dimension.

You can see the beautiful creations the Sketch Crew came up with this week... check out there blogs

and this weeks Sketch Sampler Janet Marks


I have so many photos from CHA to share.. today I'll show you the Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage Booth.

Introducing the new Vintage Postcard kits, and two new stamp sets... Mouse Party and Thanksgiving. You can see more about them here.. along with samples. Heartwarming Vintage Blog

and huge thanks to Crafty Secrets for giving us such awesome products to work with , time and time again! I feel so lucky to be associated with this amazing company and the people involved in it.

People who visit the booth always comment on how welcoming it is.
"Heartwarming" is the perfect word to describe it.

Lots of fun displays.

Once all the stamp sets are hung... I'm always amazed at how MANY there are.

CHA was smaller this year ..but still a good show. For the first time ever, after the Wholesale show..there was a retail show.. open to the public. That took alittle re-vamping of the booth in between to get out product to sell.. but we did it....and boy was that show BUSY!!!
I snuck out of the booth just long enough to snap a couple of photos of the booth. It was packed! I could hardly get back in . lol
What a show.
Super fun to meet so many nice people. It was a great couple of days.
Thankyou to everyone who came by .... we loved meeting you!

It was a full week for sure... by the time we got all packed up that last night.. we ordered Chinese food to our room and put our feet up. lol
Sharing Tattered Angels photos tomorrow.
Enjoy the day friends!
