Day 2 !!

...and a lovely start to the day with a fab workshop from Tattered Angels to have a play with all their gorgeous products - Glimmer Mists, Chalk Mists (new and brighter colours) and glitter glazes and paints to make this fab album..........

How cute is that ? The Dress Form and embellies are from the Pink Paislee Parisien Anthology range.

Pink Paislee have produced some beautiful new collections including our Blog Candy for today - a set of these gorgeous papers from the House of Three "Soiree" range.........

leave a comment and these lovely papers could be on their way to you :)

At the Ranger Booth, Claudine Hellmuth was showing us how to make these cute little flowers using her new foam stamps, sticky back canvas and Studio Line paints.....

I can't wait to make some of these when I get home !

I have tons more piccies to show you, but I am completely whacked lol !!!

I will leave you with a pic of one of my favourite buddies, our very own Dyan Reaveley and her fab Dylusions stamps, manufactured by Stampers Anonymous and.....wait for it..........coming soon to a Craft Emporium near you, YAY !!!

Time for ZZzzzzzzzz

CHA Day 1

......and the sun was shining when I finally emerged from LAX arrivals after a 1 hour 30 mins queue to get through immigration and customs !!! The hotel, which is a stones throw away from the convention centre is fab .....I could hold a function for 250 people in my room - it's HUGE !! Party at mine tonight lol !

So, I have been feasting my eyes on some amazing new products today, and have already broken the bank !

My first stop was Stampers Anonymous ( had to get my order in quickly, to be up in the first batch of shipping ) I was so busy drooling over all the fab stamps and samples I never got any photo's !!! so will have to return tomorrow for them lol.

Next stop - my fave Scrapbooking people - October Afternoon and three fab new ranges " 5 & Dime" "Rocket Age" and "Boarding Pass" - some new goodies in these ranges including some fab coordinating spray inks - how cool is that ?!!
5 & Dime .....

Rocket Age.......

Boarding Pass will be released slightly later......

So thanks to the kind folks at October Afternoon our first two CHA Blog Candys will be a set of papers from either of the new ranges due shortly, leave a comment and we will pick two lucky winners who will win either "5 & Dime" or "Rocket Age" and will be first in the UK to get them...even before we have our delivery !!!

Well it's only 10pm, but feels like 2am to me ( well, I have been awake since 4am this morning !)

Back tomorrow :)

OMG It's nearly February !!!!!

...........and I haven't disappeared off the planet !!! As most of you know 2010 was not a happy ending to the year, but it's time to look forward, remember the good times and all that !

So here I am - halfway to Los Angeles for CHA with credit cards in hand ready for some major retail therapy for the store, no piccies today, as I am on the computer in the hotel business centre, it's really not worth paying out for 24hrs internet access when I am off again early in the morning lol.

My camera is charged and ready to grab some fab pics of all the new releases........including October Afternoon, Stampers Anon, Ranger, Graphic 45 etc. etc. etc......not to mention the Blog Candy I intend to blag along the way !! So, keep your eyes peeled and get ready to grab some of the CHA Blog Candy goodies which will be appearing over the next few days :)

Talk to you from LA

About Me

My photo
Having successfully ran an online craft shop for many years, the time had come to take it easy and find more time to create and play. Of course I couldn't leave it there and signed up as a Independent Stampin' Up demonstrator. A fabulous range of high quality products and a brand new craft room, what a great combination !
