CHA - Day # 2

WOW, today was another GREAT day at CHA. I thought I had a good time yesterday - but today was a BLAST!

SQUEAL... I got to meet Elizabeth Kartchner IN PERSON! I got to chat with her, get a picture with her and check out her BEAUTIFUL "Dear Lizzy" line she designed for American Crafts!!!! What a treat - she is not only an extremely talented and beautiful person - she is SO NICE!

I just have to tell you - I have one awesome husband. He was such a good sport today. As you can see here, he doned a lovely PINK Making Memories apron - all in the name of winning some prizes. If you got "caught" wearing the pink apron around the show floor, you were eligible for receiving prizes. Let me tell you - it paid off and he won the motherlode prize offered by Making Memories - a SLICE! That's right, a brand new slice! SO EXCITING!!!!!! That was just one of many giveaways he managed to obtain. I think there's something about a man in a pink apron that draws attention... hehehehehe!

On to a few sneaks I managed to get at the show, before the camera battery died. I was so disappointed, but don't worry - I'll get some more tomorrow.

Maya Road has some lovely new flowers this time around:

October Afternoon's Let's Fly A Kite is SO FUN in person! They have 2 new releases this time around. I just ADORE October Afternoon.

Cosmo Cricket has debuted chipboard letters for the first time - I LOVE THEM!!! They're fun and trendy - what do you think?

As always, I love their new lines. Here's one:

Well, that's it for tonight, ladies. It's way past midnight here, but I couldn't go to bed until I'd given you a little peek into my day. Hope you enjoyed!
