Hi Everyone! I just wanted to share some of my photos with you from CHA 2010 in Anaheim, CA. Here is a snippet of the line as we all anxiously waited in line for the doors to open at Noon on Friday.In NO particular order, the following photos are of some of the friendliest, inspiring people that I met while at CHA:

You may recognize this super accomplished stamping girl Taylor VanBruggen of Taylored Expressions. Her booth was decorated so sweetly displaying many of her wonderful stamps! They all looked so YUMMY, I couldn't resist :)
This is me & the gifted papercrafter Sankari Wegman of Sankari's Sunshine Corner. You can find her creative work at both Taylored Expressions, 2Sketches4You, Paper Craft Planet & Verve stamps.

This is me & Jenn Balcer, the Community Manager at Splitcoast Stampers. Jenn was so congenial & out-going :)

Here is the dynamic duo: Tricia Elizabeth (Lizzie) Ulberg and Meridith Anne Ethington, the owners of Lizzie Anne Designs. Their stamps are very cute, I just had to add some of these treasures to my arsenal :)

The ippity girls (Michelle Ogdahl & Angela Magnuson) were so friendly & kind-hearted. The ippity stamps are so much fun, I added a few of these to my collection too :)This is Julie Campbell of The Vintage Chic. & DT Member of The Play Date Cafe. Julie was instructing a make-n-take for Crafty Secrets.

Making Memories is giving away this pink Vespa scooter & I think my name is already etched on it! :) This is Provocraft's "latest & greatest" release! It is the Cricut Cake - an electronic personal cutting machine used exclusively for cake decorating! "Edible Art!"
You can see all the buzz this little gem was creating.

I had a blast meeting so many cordial fellow stampers all in one place & of course, doing a bit of shopping :) That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by! Be Sweet!
