More CHA photos.. Websters Pages, Graffic45... ect..

Luckily I uploaded these photos yesterday, because I'm posting this from Wes's laptop here in Lincoln. Wes has has a terrible migraine for days now... and it's gotten worse instead of better. After talking with him this morning , we were so concerned we came here and are taking him in to get a shot or something. He is just miserable. He doesn't have a regular doctor here ..that on top of being in so much pain , and with blurred vision, he was having a horrible time looking through insurance papers ect. We finally got an appointment with a Doctor here that was a preferred provider for his insurance. They were nice enough.. to work him in , in a couple of hours. Sure hope they can do something to relieve his pain.
If you get a chance.. please stop over to THE VINTAGE VERANDA. It's "all vintage" site. .. with a fantastic gallery and super friendly bunch. I'm honored to be Guest Artist there this month.
Okay.. sharing more CHA photos.. but keeping the writing brief.

I was in heaven in this booth. Websters Pages

I think their papers are SOOO Beautiful!!!

I'm actually getting to the end of the photos. I think I have a few more to share tomorrow..then I'm finished.
Now.. off to see what the doc can do for Wes. Hopefully something .. so he can sleep tonight.

CHA Fancy Pants.. Tattered Angels and a sisiter for Griff!

Griffins is pretty happy to now be a BIG Brother. Yep.... Halle Lyn was born yesterday morning. Congratulations to Kiley and Brad. I picked up Grif this morning and we went to visit Grandma Dunn for a while , then came back here and played the afternoon away. He cracks me up! Cant wait to see the new babe!


Okay.. back you CHA photos. lol I'll start with Tattered Angels. Here are a few of the girls from the DT and from the office.

Make and takes and demos.. were BUSY.

Here is the darling Miss Liz Hicks working her magic with Glimmer Mist at the demo table.

Another Tattered Angels Designer, the talented ... Sally Lynn McDonald

Here is a pin I made using Glimmer Chips, Glimmer Mist, and Crafty Secrets Valentine stickers.

The TA booth looked beautiful.

It was so great to get to see all the new creations the DT has been working on .. in person.

The new albums are going to be a huge hit.

The Fancy Pants booth. Always a hop'n place. It was a long way from the CS booth, so after I dropped off my projects the day of set up, I didn't really get back over , except for a few quick minutes to snap a few shots. It probably sounds weird to say.. it was a long ways away.. but unless you've been there, it's hard to visualize just how big CHA is .'s HUGE! ( I'm talking football fields huge)

As always .. the new lines from Fancy Pants are fantastic! See them HERE

And this new line of Kraft Kuts... Oh my!

Check out these new "On Display" Frames

You can check out the new Mixed Media books HERE

All the other new goodies from Fancy Pants can be seen here.


I hope your not tired of CHA photos yet.. because I have more coming tomorrow.

CHA*** Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage*** and misc

I have lots of photos I've promised to share.. so I'm going to get started.
ahhh... sunshine! I even wore flip flops the day we set up. woo hoo!
Here are some photos of the Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage booth

It was a great show. Really exciting with the 11 new stamps sets that were just released.

The Easter Egg and framed piece in the photo below are mine. The Cute little birthday Greeting box was made by Lisa Z.

And here she is .. the one who makes it all happen... Crafty Secrets owner.. Sandy Redburn.

another photo of the booth. We have an amazingly talented Design Team.. I wish you could have seen all the gorgeous samples in the booth.

Like I always say.. the best part of CHA is meeting up with friends that live far away, that you dont get to see often. (that .. and making new friends .. of course) The photo below is Sandy and I with our friends Michelle White and Helle Greer. Michelle is the owner of Paper Tales.
I have to tell you .. if you live anywhere near San Deigo .. you have to check out this fun store! It's something extra special.
Here is a photo of the Crafty Secrets Design Team members that were at CHA, at dinner after the show one night. It was fun to get a chance to meet them in person. Hope to meet all the Team members some time.
left to right me.. Sandy, Lisa Zappa, Anna Wight and Heidi.Blankenship.

I had to post this photo... the fire alarms went off one day.. and the building had to be evacuated.. This photo is just a small part of the back side of the building.. so you can image how many people attend this event. ALOT!

Here's a cheesy photo of me.. pointing at the "Clearly" books advertisement on the side of the Design Originals booth. ( what a dork I am ) lol

Aren't these cute?

The class went really well .. and look what I got from one of the girls who took the class.. from Norway. yum!

Below.. my friend Susan. Always love meeting up with her. I see she has lots of CHA photos on her blog also.. if you want to see more. HERE
awww.. I just love this girl. Miss Vicki Boutin

And there just isn't a nicer person than Tammy Morrill from Scrapbook Trends Magazine. It was so great to see you again Tammy!

Okay... thats the first bunch of photos. I'll post Fancy Pants and Tattered Angels tomorrow.. and on from there. ( I told you .. I have lots of photos to share) lol
