Summer CHA 2013 - through photos

We're heeeeeeeeere!

Meet Lisa.  We were lucky enough to somehow get invited to a private tour of the Bazzill Basics booth with coffee and bagels before the doors officially opened.  She was a great hostess, and boy oh boy is there some fun stuff coming for all us Bazzill Basic Fans.

This Nordic Pines Collection was my absolute favourite

The Prima booth was the prettiest booth I made it to today.  And this Leeza Gibbons line is so adorable.  I just love the colour combinations, and the fun new designs.

Loved, loved, loved this layout.
Crate Paper Close knit collection
How the day all began!  I'll have much better photo of the Chic Tags booth later on for you.
Does she really need an intro?  I think not, but man she's so uber cute prego.

Finally met up with Kristy Lee of We R Memory Keepers, another friend made through Instagram.  I love the internet.  I've met so many great people because of it.
These gorgeous girls came all the way from Bolivia to attend CHA.  Also met some ladies from the UK  (who bought everything Chic Tags released - yay, and a group from Costa Rica)

Super cool to have Rochelle and Kristi of Paper Secrets stop by the Chic Tags booth.
The adorable Kelly Purkey taking a quick break from running the IG page for Simon Says Stamp.

Our super talented friend Anabelle O'Malley came by the Chic Tags booth to say hello.  She's even more gorgeous in real life.
Echo Park/Carta Bella Both.
Can't wait to work with Kaitlin's new collection.  Isn't it gorgeous?!
So fun to see my friends' layout up at the show, Patricia's is just one of many I saw.  I'll post more later.
Had a nice long chat with Jody of Echo Park Paper too.  Very cool!
Reunited once again with my fellow Canuck Marjolaine Walker (we met through Scrapping Everyday Miracles), and met her friend Ronda Palazzari for the first time.  She had a fun group of gals with her too, so glad they all stopped by our Chic Tags booth.
I have a little secret about this super spunky designer, but you'll have to wait to hear about it (such a tease I know)

Met the fabulously talented Alison Kreft.  What a sweetheart.  She was so genuine and easy going.  I learned that her first collection was completed mere days before the birth of her baby, crazy.  This new collection is just awesome, 
check out these super awesome overlays, they're Instagram photo size.
I just know I'm going to have to work with this collection
Adorable signage right?
Lea Lawson of Glitz Designs is seriously as friendly in person as she is online.  It was so nice to sit and chat with her for a while about everything under the sun.  The new Glitz collection are pretty great.

Ended the day with the great folks of Ocotber Afternoon.  They stopped by our Chic Tags booth.  I returned back to the booth in time to have them compliment me on my layouts - what?!  Seriously, such a compliment.  They were a really fun bunch.
Alright, that's it for me, it's 1 AM, and my batter is at 13%.  Time to go to bed.  Carol and I have decided to take the day off tomorrow and hed to Red Rock (I think that's what she called it) to do a little hiking and see some great views of the North Las Vegas.  We'll have to go before the 40% heat knocks us on our feet.  I hope you liked seeing all the photos.  I know some are blurry and they're kind of small but I hope you'll forgive me.  Don't forget you can follow along on Instagram or through my FB page for more up to date photos.

Until next time,
Pin It
