CHA Anaheim Recap

I have been on information overload the last few days!!!  It has been such an exciting time as I attend my first CHA in Anaheim, CA.  I flew in on Thursday afternoon & met up with Sara Henton to ride the shuttle over to the Convention Center.  I immediately went to the Clear & Simple Stamps booth and started helping the girls get the booth ready for the Supershow the following day.  I arrived back at the hotel where I met up with my great friends Kerry Donovan-Casey and Kristen Catalano.  I laughed til' I could laugh no more than night!



The first day of the Supershow was a little slower than we expected, but most of the time there was a steady flow of customers moving through the booth.  I did the 2nd make and take of the day where we created teabag/matchbook cards.  I will have to share it another day as I didn't even take a picture of it.  I spent a little money while I was walking around the first day.

Here's a picture of the Clear & Simple Stamps booth in progress.



The second day of the Supershow was a whirlwind!  It was busy from the moment the doors opened until doors closed.  I shopped most of the 2nd day as we had some extra help at the CSS booth.  I had a lot of fun!!!  I went out to dinner with a bunch of friends that night at the Cheesecake Factory, which I laughed so much again.  Charlotte Brown, Pat Huntoon, Lisa Somerville, Rose Kerry, Connie Ingram, Suzanne J. Dean, Gerrie Johnnic, Kristen Catalano, Kerry Donovan-Casey & I had a blast!

Today we started the first day of the Tradeshow.  I have been fortunate to get to walk around and see all the new products being released.  Here are few of my favorites:

The CSS Tradeshow booth...and the new Iphone App which you can read more about here at the Embellish Magazine Blog, it's a one of a kind application, which I can't wait to get!



Some yummy May Arts Ribbon


How about some of my favorites-Basic Grey?


For my buddy Libby-some Hero Arts goodies.

And, for some of you, this may be an easy guess, but how about this celebrity?  Can you guess who it is?
I may have some blog candy for you when I return home if you can guess correctly.  Let me know who you think it is before I return home Tuesday evening, I'll draw a name on Wednesday morning.

ETA:  The blog candy has been closed.
