Some CHA pictures

Hi everyone!  I am back from CHA and trying to settle back in the swing of things.  You know, a lot of Google Reader blog posts and emails come in when you are away from the computer for 5 days?  I confess to hitting "Mark all as read" on the GR after viewing the first 100... Oh and I really need to unpack!  lol.

I don't have any cards to share today as I am fighting a nasty cold that me and my CHA roomie, co-Verve Diva and Bestie, Teresa Kline BOTH got!  ugh.

BUT, I do have some fun CHA pictures to share.  First up, a picture of me and Teresa while we were standing in line at the Tim Holtz booth for his fabulous Make and Take.
 And, here is the Make and Take necklace.  Isn't it amazing?  The "W" charm says Wonderful, but with the M and the W together those are my initials!  Coolness!
Me with Heather Klimas, the amazing (and stunning I might add) Assistant Editor of Paper Creations Magazine!  I got to walk some booths with Heather and she really is just as sweet as can be.
 Me and co-Verve Diva Amy. Sigh... Just. Love. This. Girl.   She is as sweet as her designs are AMAZING!
Me with Jeanne Streiff and Kazan Clark. It was my first time hanging with Kazan and let me tell you, she is a HOOT! And, of course, Jeanne is always one of my favorite people to meet up with.
 Here is one of me and Maren Benedict.  We took this right after we did her Make and Take flower (using the amazing new Glubers) at the Cosmo Cricket booth.  The flower is on my badge cord-isn't totally cute?
Me with Susan Opel, the fabulous Editor Extraordinaire of Paper Crafts Magazine!
Here is me at the Crafts 'n Things Magazine booth!  This month they are debuting the magazines NEW LOOK!  It has a larger shape, larger card pictures in the 30 Minute Cards Section and has a new "white based" clean look to the entire magazine.  I am lucky to have some projects in this issue, so it was REALLY fun to visit. 
And finally, here are the Gina K DT girls from our dinner -Deb, Jennie, Me, Suzanne, Janice and Valerie.  And can I say, what a fabulous team!!!
Thanks for stopping by and hopefully I will shake this nasty cold and get to STAMPING!  After the show, I am really inspired to create!!  Have a great weekend.

  6. Hi Michele,

    It looks like you had a fabulous time hooking up with your internet friends!

    I am so sorry you are feeling ill. Please don't under-estimate this one! Drink tons of fluid. I have probably had 30 boxes of jello with pineapple tidbits in it this month! I hope it is just a mild cold... but there is a bug going around that can knock your socks off if not careful. So, wear your socks! lol

    Be well. Welcome Home. And, try to rest when your schedule allows for it!

    When you are well, I'd love to see the flower on your cord, and how you made it. And, I LOVE that necklace...FABULOUS!

    He IS Able,
    Traci S.
