I am back from CHA~

So, would you like to look at some of the goodies from CHA... also, gotta share a few photos of some ladies I met there! Wish I could have carried a camera each day, but too much to keep up with in such a busy place.

First up. A photo of myself and Amy Tara Koeppel who I have "known" from the online scrapping world for a while now! She is just as kind and sweet in person as I though she would be! Wish we could have spent even more time together girly!

Next up, I met two Garden Girls (Cindy Liebel and Wendy Bretz) along with one of their friends! They were all so fun and funny!

Then, I was able to meet the fabulous Keri Lee Sereika, Jeanne Streiff and Kimber McGray - I know their work and am on the Card Positioning Systems team. I was only able to get a photo with myself, Kimber and Jeanne! Keri had her new baby with her that is adorable and Kimber was across the aisle from me in her booth so we got to chat a bit - she's so fun! Loved seeing them!

I will be loading tons of CHA 2009 photos on the Label Tulip blog along with some of the other Label Tulip girls who were there if you want tons of close-up photos of the projects, papers and other new releases this year!

Also, wanted to share my layout using today's Friday Formula at Create My Keepsake. The page was made with supplies from the July kit there as well!

Lullaby of Birdland

So, I am trying to gear up for CHA next week... and, for the first time in forever I have a cold! eek! I do not want to be nursing a runny nose next week! So, here's hoping some rest, vitamins, immune system and cold medicine kick in quickly!

For you! Here's a look at one of the three new lines coming out this summer from Scribble Scrabble! They will not be at CHA so here's a link to their site!
Here's lullaby of birdland:
