CHA & Good Times!

Hiya friend!  I had such a great time at CHA and look forward to going again!  My husband was such a doll as he toted around bags and a camera and stood around as I pondered my purchases!  Love that man!  I do not have a card for you just yet, but I do have some fun shots of me and some of my papercrafting idols!  Oh my was I star-struck!  The show itself was somewhat disappointing as I thought there would have been more vendors but I did manage to get some really great stuff.

My first stop was of course, Papertrey Ink but when I walked in the doors I spotted the DeNami Designs Booth where my favorite girly Paulina was!  I quickly walked over and noticed Kelly Marie Alvarez and her chatting!  To say I was excited would be an understatement!  They are both the sweetest girls!  Well, that was just the beginning friend!  So, I will cut the chit-chat and give you some pics!

After leaving them I stood in line to shop at Papertrey Ink's lovely booth!  I think I waited a good hour to just get in the booth!  While waiting I met Julie and of course Nicole, that girl is super funny, my kind of humor ;0)

The whole experience was somewhat surreal and went way to fast! I found everything I was hoping to find and can't wait to do it again! I will leave you with a few more pictures and I will hopefully be back later to show you some of the neat things I bought!  Now, I am off to check out what I have missed while I was away!
