CHA Adventure: Flashback to Day #5

Happy Day to All!  I'm backing up in time for today's post...I wanted to share with you some of our highlights of Day #5 at CHA...It was another whirlwind day. Here are a few pic's of us outside the showroom floor waiting for the doors to OpeN, OpeN, OpeN!



We were all having a little too much fun...so anxious to get inside!!!

For me a good part of this day was spent running through booths with some of my awesome Rep's and dashing to appointments....trying to soak up everything I could see in between!!!....and boy oh boy....was there a lot to soak up! Wonderful new products and amazing sample projects at every turn!

Here a few pic's of some of the gorgeous new glass glitters and fragments coming out by Stampendous...

Elaine kept running her fingers through all the jars of Mica Flakes on their display...
They have a new goodie called Color Fragments...can't wait for them to come in so we can show you! They will be great addition to some of our Spring Projects!
And we all fell in love with this unique display piece they had in their booth...
One of the many, many highlights on our CHA Adventure was visiting the Heidi Swapp booth! I for one, am so excited that she is returning to the "scrappy" side of crafting! Here are a few peeks inside her booth...



While I was busy ordering EvEryThiNg in Heidi's new Lines...(I had very little self-control here)...the LBH gals enjoyed a Make & Take project with Heidi...

You will love her NEW Memory Files....and oh SO SO SO much MORE!!! Welcome back Heidi!!!

Christy Tomlinson, (LOVE her work) has now come out with her own line of products...Here is a look at one of her sample projects and pictures of her new line...

She has beautiful papers, embellishments, and a new line of stamps! We're gonna have some ArTsy FUN with these when they arrive at the LBH!!!!


Here is a look at a NEW collection from Little Yellow Bicycle...one of my favorites is called  Saturdays...

and you will love the NEW Brag Books and Accessory Kits by Fancy Pants....
They are definitely something to "BrAg" about!!!
and here is a peek at their NEW Wave Searcher Collection...(or as I like to call it,,, the OP line)....I kid you not, I had an OP t-shirt back in the 80's that had the same graphic on it as the paper in the top right corner...only my shirt was white....I love this line!
Any Fabric Junkies out there?!?!?!   Well, I am a self-confessed fabric junkie and I'm so happy to announce that the Little Blue House will be bringing in some beautiful bundles of fabulous fabric from my good friends at ADORNit!  Allison helped us make some awesome selections and even better she and her Mom will be here for GASC and want to stop by and teach a Specialty Workshop at the LBH!!! I'll post more info about is as the time drawers closer.



Amidst the dashing about from appt. to appt. we took a little time out for a quick photo shoot at the I Love to Create Booth...What fun!!!! We chose the signs that we thought fit us the best...




What a bunch of silly girls...we have the BEST team ever!!!!

Here's another crafty treat from Seven Gypsies...it's their NEW ticket holder...
Bazzill Paper released Margie's NEW line....it's so pretty...
Bazzill is also now producing 24x12 sheets of cardstock....That's a whopper of a sheet!!!
So many incredible layouts....everywhere we turned!!!!

Kristyn and I are working on a slide show presentation for you, so we can share many more photos and loads of inspiration with you! So please stay tuned....we have much more to share!!!

I want to share a few more with you...this is us with our wonderful hostess Mrs. Rogers. I want to personally thank her again for her generosity and all the kindness she showed us during our stay!



So it's time to wrap it up....thanks for reading the post! I hope you are enjoying the memories we have shared with you....I loved reading your comments on our "Packing Up" post...and I look forward to seeing many more comments!  Our official CHA give-Aways will begin this Monday so PLEASE....RUN don't WALK to the comments section and post away!!!
I have SO many prizes to share!!!

Keep Creating!
Miss Tracy :)
