Well, it’s come to an end and what fun I’ve had. Today Jeanne and I wandered around and hit some of the booths that we had missed the first two days. Of course, we have spent a great deal of time hanging in and around the Hanna and Spellbinders booths, who were just across the aisle from each other. We finally got around to making the Spellbinders Make n’ Take, which used the daisy from one of the boxes that Linda Duke designed. Those Spellbinder girls are so much fun to joke around with! I finally got to meet Heidi Blankenship as well. We have been emailing back and forth for some time now, but I had never met her. Why I didn’t get pictures, I don’t know — my BAD!
Jeanne and I finally spent some time in the Inque Boutique booth today. We had walked through briefly yesterday admiring the different images. There are so many to look at, and there is something there for everybody – from cutesy to grunge! They are all unmounted colorful rubber, and each set comes with their own foam stamping pad. It was so nice to meet Stephanie Barnard, and before we left the booth we had to gather for a photo.
Another SCSer that we have run into every day is Jan Marie Caruso from Flourishes. Today I finally made everyone stop so that we could get a photo. Jan Marie’s husband, who has been by her side the entire show, was kind enough to take the photo. It seems like I run into Jan Marie at every show I’m at, and it was so much fun to actually spend some time with her and talk. Love ya girl!
There was another stop at the Ranger booth today, to watch Wendy Vecchi do her magic. I showed you pics of her new images yesterday along with those fabulous grunge flowers she makes. Today I learned her secret to making those flowers curl — but I’ll never tell (well not yet anyway)! While at the Ranger booth, standing next to me was Lisa Somerville! Come to find out, she was in the same Ranger class we were on Thursday, sitting in the same row but on the other side of the room. Bummer that I didn’t know she was there! Wow how much fun to finally meet Lisa. I’m sorry that I didn’t think to get a photo when I had the chance with Lisa. Maybe next time we meet!
There’s a photo I forgot to show you yesterday. I think I might have been tired! I have met Joy from Eclectic Paperie before, but this was the first time I had met Daisy. I’ve been a Friend of EP for a long time, and it was so much fun to give them both hugs and get to chat for a bit.
I said yesterday that the picture with Cindy Lyles was so bad I wouldn’t show it. Okay I’ve tried to work on it and apologize to for everyone in it BUT look who I’m standing with, Cindy Lyles, Anna Wight and Kathy Sanders!
I think this just about wraps up my CHA coverage. Hugs were given to everyone as they left for the airport with promises to see each other soon! Jeanne and I fly back to my house in the morning and then she is going to hang out in my stamp room for a couple of days. Hopefully we’ll get some stamping done, if we’re not too tired!
Hugs to Gail and Sue and all the rest too!!
