CHA, Day 3...finally!

Hi there!
In spite of my best intentions, it's taken a few days to get around to posting about our last day at CHA -- there's been so much to catch up on (including sleep)!

So, here we go:

Aside from placing all the remaining orders for (fabulous) product for Scrappy Chic, Chris, Katie and I really wanted to make sure we hit all the fun photo opportunities together on the last day. Here are a few:

We all had to get Smashed together -- I like my eyepatch-tiara combo! Chris as a hook-handed Statue of Liberty and Katie's giant mustache are very stylish, no? Chris thinks it would be a great idea to recreate the Smash photobooth idea in the store -- if you agree, be sure to let her know!

Between the three of us, we probably got more pics with Amy Tan than anyone else at the show! 

Dyan Reavely's awesome mixed-media style (for Ranger and Stamper's Anonymous) makes Katie very happy -- plus, she's super-nice!! Hi, Dyan!

What's a paper arts event without a Tim Holtz photo op, really? Katie only had to fight the crowds for a minute to sneak this one in ;)

"She did it -- I swear I'm innocent!" October Afternoon's saloon-themed booth made for some fun photos.

The one and only Maren Benedict took our order at the Unity Stamp Co. booth -- and of all the very sweet people we met at the show, I think she might be the sweetest! Plus, we ordered some awesome stamps, and I can't wait for them to come in. Bonus: I'll be the Growing in Unity gal all this week (starting tomorrow), so be sure to come back and check out more Unity goodness and get a chance to win a set just for commenting!

Now, how about a little eye candy?

Spellbinders has some cool new dies (nesties postage stamps, anyone?), but my faves are both on this card -- their new Edgeabilites line has really versatile border dies, and those butterflies are just gorgeous! I also like that a lot of the new Grand Calibur dies will work with regular-sized machines. Nice.

Ok, not the best photo, but Lily Bee's fall line is really pretty and warm and versatile.

Simple Stories! The new lines are just as fun as 100 Days of Summer -- plus their samples show just how quick and easy scrapping can be while still being totally charming. I now feel the need to try my hand at divided page protectors.

We won a drawing for this great G45 product, along with that super-cute lunch box all done up in their Wizard of Oz line. Excitement!

And finally --

We had to leave eventually, right? It was so much fun, made even funner because Chris and Katie are such a blast! Thanks, Chris, for taking us along.  

Here's our view on the way home:

See you next year, I hope!! Hooray for CHA!
