WOW, I can't believe it is already Tuesday. The days here at CHA have been flying by. I have met SOOO many creative & wonderful new people. CHA has been such a amazing experience. Before I go completely crazy with pics and info on CHA, I wanted to share some VERY EXCITING news with you. Are you ready????? really ready???? I am officially a "sweetie", but you already knew that right (JK), know, I am officially a part of Hope stamps Eternal Design team.

So, keep your eye out for the challenges, and new product (which I have already seen in real life here at CHA). I look forward to playing :)


First let me start of by saying this has been a truly AMAZING experience for me. I have met SO many wonderful people, and they are all SO talented. It has been a fantastic trip.

There have been a few products which have made me feel like "I need that", and some that I have just thought "that's nice, but not on my "radar".

As far as products go, my #1 must have is ALL the new Basic Grey 6x6 pads. They are releasing at least 6 new types of 6x6 pads, and one more amazing than the next.

Other items that I really liked are:
1.The Zutter distressing tool (in stores in March)
2. New 8x8 paper by October afternoon
3. New Martha Stewart punched
4. The new Greeting Farm stamps
5. Making Memories new embellishments and deco beads
6. Pink Paislee 6x6 paper pads
7. Our craft lounge new stamps
8. Stampavie stamps

Before I end my CHA experience with you, I have to share something with you. What is it you ask?????

I won a brand new Slice from making memories. Yahooooo. The one I won is pink. SO cool...I have a fun new toy.

Well, That is all for today. I have to finish packing to head home tomorrow. It has been a great week, and I will miss my new friends. Looking forward to heading home to see my family. I am hoping Kerry & I will make it back next year. So ciao for now, and I should be back in action soon.
