Home again...

Well I made it home. Exhausted and shopped out, but with lots of wonderful upcoming kits planned out! I had a great time with Lexi and Samantha, and I even got to meet up with one of my childhood friends who I hadn't seen in 20+ years. It was unforgettable! (You girls are just the best! I loved our time together!) I think I gained 4 pounds from all of our Inn-N-Out burger stops, and I felt like I walked at least 100 miles on the show floor, but somehow I managed to have a great time through it all. I don't know how I did it, but somehow I managed. *smirk*
This is a shot of me and one of my BFF's Lindee who I hadn't seen in 20+ years...we just had the best time ever. She is exactly who she was in the first grade when I met her. We vowed that it wouldn't be another 20 years before we met up again. She is one of those friends that you feel close to (like you could tell her anything) no matter how much time has passed since we were together. I loooove this girl!
And now for a few sneak peeks from my gallery!! Oh yes, it's that time again. Time for a new kit! Long Johns will be up for sale first thing in the morning at 8:00 a.m. CST!

I loved this alphabet. Fabric is my friend! :)
I think most of our DT has posted sneak peeks on their blogs check theirs out and come back to see the full reveal tomorrow! Hope you had a great weekend!

CHA part 2...

I have seen so many wonderful things here! Having a's a peek at Cosmo Cricket's booth! So cute!

This was from the Pink Paislee booth.

This is from Hambly's booth.

Love these darling rub-ons!

And here is a lovely layout by our very own Jaime Warren at the Prima booth. SO pretty.

This was the 7 Gypsies booth. Always a favorite. I loved what this sign said! "In order to be irrecplacable on must always be different."

Here is another Hambly layout by Dina Wakely, who I just love.
FFor this she trimmed around the doily paper and added a wooden hoop to make a wall hanging.
This was my favotie display item at the 7 Gypsies booth. Yumm!

And here's a few more images from the Girls Loft line that's new by Advantus. I love the flags on sticks..

And last but definitley not least...a sneak peek of what's to come in February's kit! Hope you have a great night...I'm off to the last day of the show in the morning! :)

Oh my goodness...we are having the best time ever! CHA is such a marathon, so we are taking it easy tonight and scrapbooking in our hotel room...and poor Lexi is sick. (So she's allowed to go to bed early:)
That's us by the way. (Me, Elizabeth Kartchner, Samantha Sibbet, and Lexi Bridges.)

This was my favorite booth at the show...the new Girls Loft lines were absolutely darling! I loved her paper garlands. These were hanging all around the booth.

I also was in love with Jenni Bowlin's booth (as always.)
I really love these buttons! Who wouldn't right??
Those teeny tiny little letters on this canvas are cut from one of her new bingo cards. So cute.

And we ended the night with a trip to IKEA. I don't think it gets much better! :)

Now I need to get to bed so I can shop till I drop in the morning. I'll post more pictures tomorrow! Have a great night!

This past weekend I took a cinnamon jar candle that was NOT cute (but smelled terrific)...and transformed it. Just in time for Valentine's Day!
Here is the's always so much fun to use your scrapbooking supplies on things other than scrapbook pages. I added a filmy ribbon, because I am not really a fan of this shape of jar either!
I added a band of Prima canvas printed material (*note use glue gun...your glue dots will not hold it! :) I picked 2 little embellishments to add. The flower in the middle is Heidi Swapp, the hearts on either side are Me and My Big Ideas. I set it on a heart shaped plate and it looks nothing like it did before. Mission accomplished!

Happy Friday everyone! I am headed to California tomorrow for CHA and can't wait to show you all of my favorites here on the ol' blog! Have a great weekend!
