Hello Everybody!

OK!  Now I'm finally back with it!  Projects done, clothes packed, tickets and reservations printed....All Done!  Time TO START BLOGGING Again!

I'm off to CHA, the Craft and Hobby Association Event in Anaheim, CA!  Going to see what they have in store for us this year!  Can't wait to see! I know you can't either, so let the blog posts roll!  I will do my utmost best to try to give you daily updates of the things I see and what amazing things I find!  So keep checking back!  I will also be Facebooking pictures and content as I see them at CHA, so check there too!

It's going to be so AMAZING to see all my friends in one place!  If you are attending the show, PLEASE make sure you give me a hug!  LOVE me some hugs!  YAHOO!

I've got some really cool projects that I have created for the event that I will be revealing as the show opens on Saturday.   That's the rules and I've tried to be good at following them!  I was honored to be apart of this years Designer Challenge with Ranger.  It's a cool "time" sensitive project...So,  that's coming...then there are several projects for Graphic 45 that I have worked so hard on!  Each and everyone, I have poured hours into to make them special.   I hope you like them!  I so love all the new papers from G45!  Graphic 45 really hit these papers out of the ballpark!  Gorgeous!  Each one inspired me to make something that was suitable to the quality and beauty of these collections.

Just for fun, here's a sneak of  a project using Graphic 45's Botanical Tea.  If you have been following me on Facebook, you may have realized this particular project was a week in the making! I totally love this paper and project! The patterns and prints in this collection are surely worth purchasing!

So, I will see you in Anaheim!  Disney...Here I come!

Auf Wiedersehen!  Thanks for coming by!
