and you know how hard that is!!!!
Set off early this morning to CHA. Could not believe the size of the map let alone the actual centre itself.
We sat and planned our route for today over a hot chocolate and a Twix (No maltesers in USA) and circled each stand we wanted to visit. Started off with the new exibits and found some exciting new papers and ideas.
Then ventured into the main hall. Visited Bazzill - great new products which will be winging their way to us shortly. Stunning new K & Co products which took our breath away for release later this year, again ordered (ouch!!)
Chipboard everywhere in all shapes and sizes. We've picked out the best of the bunch. I had to stop Karen from raiding the stands and checked her bags at regular intervals. (I even had to drag her away from a demo as she wanted to PLAY!!!!)
Did a few classes and took over 300 photos which (if we can work out how to do it) we will add to the BLOG. Four carrier bags full of catalogues and both of us met Karen Foster and came away with T-Shirts (signed). Also said hello to Heidi Swapp. Nice lady.
Must just mention a few of our favorite things......
Julie - 7 Gypsies (distressed and vintage - scrummy); Pine Cone(Blown away by these and coming to you soon); Crate Paper (Beautiful new papers)
Karen - QuicKutz (have now convinced Julie that we need The Revolution); Maya Road (Chipboard, Chipboard, Chipboard); Heidi Grace (for all those girlie bits); Bare Elements (If you like my mannequin wait till you see these).
Just off to the Steak House. Would like to take this opportunity to tell all of our family we love and miss you.
Check back same time tomorrow - Hopefully with some photos
KAREN IS STILL NOT SMOKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
