Sharing a new project.. and friends from CHA

I'm finally getting caught up on things around here and have organized my photos from last week. Today I'm posting photos with friends from CHA. As I always say.. seeing friends is the best part of it all!
Sorry they aren't on the best quality photos . I was using my new small camera and didn't even pay any attention to the settings because things were so busy. ( trust me .. I will next time for sure.) lol
Before the photos a project.....
Today...I'm sharing a project that is posted
( with a step by step)

We have emailed and text each other so much ..but never met in person until this CHA. She is just as I imagined her. Hey ... I should have known I'd love her.. she's a fellow "Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers" fan. lol

My little cutie pie friend...Ruth (photo below) is Amy Stewarts daughter. Amy owns Precious Treasures Scrapbook Boutique in Fremont.

Cathy from Altered Playground in Rapid City South Dakota.

Another Canadian friend. Designer extraordinaire... Miss Vicki Boutin

My Fancy Pants girls... Amy Peterman , me and Cindy Tobey. I {heart} these girlsies! I didn't take many photo of the FP booth ..but Cindy has some great ones on her blog HERE.

Michelle White (owner of Paper Tales in San Diego) Debbie Schuh , Sandy Redburn ( owner of Crafty Secrets) and I at dinner one night.
We always have a great time with these girls. Lots a laughs for sure!!
You can check out the Paper Tales blog to see all the fantastic things they haveand what a darling store it is. What a FUN place. (which I'm hoping to see first hand before long.. , when I go teach there. ... more about that later when we talk more about dates).

I love sharing photos of friends but ... the sad part of it is that.. I certainly dont get one of all the people I'd love to get one of ...things just move so quickly.. and sometimes the booth is busy.. so it's a quick hug.. and a few words.. just no time for photos.
These are friends I've make over the past years ..but every show.. I meet new friends... and make new relationships.. and that's so great too.
Ola! to my new friends from Barcalona! lol
*****Hope you enjoyed meeting my friends!*****
