I can't do a CHA post without mentioning...i HEART hambly! always beautiful and inspring papers, overlays, rub-ons and new washi tape...super FAB!!!
and more....paper flowers, pin cushions & felted ornamanets. FELT seemed to be everywhere this year.
My three days at CHA were filled with back-to-back meetings and non-stop talking, walking and visiting with friends...it was a huge success but I'm totally exhausted! I'm looking forward to sharing some of the great things in the works coming up in 2011...lots of exciting stuff! If you couldn't tell by my photos CHA was a blast as usual...great times with all my pals, checking out the latest trends in paper arts & crafting. I left with a lot of new inspriations, ideas and business plans. check out a few more CHA photos here. thanks for following along...xo~treiC
