We're back! Such a fun and wonderful three days and if we had to wrap it all up in to one word, that word would be EXCITING! Yes, CHA in Chicago was exciting. It was not only exciting to see so many great new paper lines, it was exciting to see new tools, new trends and new companies too. To be in a large football field sized room with so many creative people is truly and wonderfully exciting! Yesterday was a shorter day at the show as it wraps up early on day 3 but we happily snapped a few more pictures to show you...
Some new EK Success punches...one, two or three...perhaps we need them all!
American Crafts City Park - love this line!
Sadly, the camera battery died before we could get some great images of the new "Dear Lizzy" line for I can say it what beautiful whimsy at it's best!
If you are expecting a baby, know someone who is having a baby, or are scrapbooking your own baby's pictures, the Pebbles "Litte One" line is going to melt your heart. It is that adorable!
Some great new Fancy Pants lines - no doubt these lines are going to be popular!
And our final stop...Jillibean Soup!
and I couldn't resist "borrowing" this image from the Jillibean Soup blog. This is Jill, the owner of Jillibean Soup and our very own Kimber McGray who works with Jill.
Remember This! It is a fantastic book and one that won't be on store shelves for long.
Well, friends...that was how we spent 3 days. Laughing, talking and loving all the new products on the way to your local stores. We spent evenings having great dinners and catching up with friends, doing a little retail therapy and browsing catalogues until we fell asleep - way too late of course! Thank you for sharing our fun these past few days - we hope you have enjoyed it. But, speaking of fun...we've got a giveaway just for you! Our friends at Doodlebug offered our readers an opportunity to win this beautiful Welcome Home collection...
how super cute are these??
We loved hanging out in the Doodlebug kitchen at the show and thought it was the perfect line to share with you because home is where the heart is! (and we loved the litte couches!!!) All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 5th for a chance to win. Good luck!!!
Now before we leave you, just a reminder that tomorrow is our Project 12 August sketch launch! And, we've got a little surprise. If you are following Project 12 with us and loving Becky Fleck's sketches, you will love the August sketch! See you tomorrow!!
