**Fair warning, this is a long post with a ton of pics**
Ok....first of all, I am so sorry that it has taken me this long to update after getting back from CHA. I have a perfectly good excuse....
Ok, there is more to it then that. The night I flew home, my husband also came home early with the flu. Took care of him and the kids all weekend. And I was already exhausted from the trip, and not really feeling that well myself. Then it seemed like one thing after another just went wrong (like having no internet). But hopefully that is all over with. Internet is working again. I am sharing my photos. And I am dying to hit the craft room tonight. :)
I didn't post the sketch I created for LAST Monday, since I was gone. So I'm going to share that with you first:
And a two pager for those who prefer those....
Since this is already going to be a very LONG post, I am not posting samples, but you can click here to view a bunch of samples for this sketch.
And then the girls at SC are so awesome! They are covering me for the month of February and coming up with new sketches for the group. This one is sketch 240, created by Natalie:
And again, I am not posting the samples. To see samples for this sketch click here.
Now on to CHA!!!
This CHA was such a different experience for me then the Summer show. While I enjoyed being there, there was some drama. Basically I just butted heads with another individual. I do not need to share the details or the name of the person, because I don't need to put that out there. But I came home feeling discouraged and emotionally exhausted. I questioned whether I would ever even attend again.
But I am glad that I am sharing photos with you, because while I was going through them all I realized that I really did have a lot of fun. And I got to hang out with some great people, and meet a lot of people I know from online.
So here is the booth where I spent most of my time. If you look closely you can see projects I did that have not been shared yet, as well as from others on the DT. And you will also spot a new line that we haven't even shared with you all yet. ;)
There are two more walls that were full of samples, but I didn't get pictures of them.
And here is the My Little Shoebox crew:
And what does a scrapbooker do at a trade show....well take lots of pictures of course! :) I was so excited to see some people again and to meet people that I've talked to online!

(Me and Nancy...one of those Colorado gals that I had to meet in California)
(Liz and Me...aww Liz, sorry I never made it back to talk more!)
(Me and Noeleen)
(Anabelle and Me...Nicole snagged this pic with my camera while we were posing for Anabelle's camera...I love it because we are not looking directly at the camera and that is different then all the rest of my photos!)
(Me and Michelle)
(Erin and Me)
(Patti and Shelly)
(Oh I LOVE this girl...Me and Nat)
(And I had to snag this one from Angela because I didn't get one with her with my camera!)
Other people I hung out with a lot but somehow didn't get any pictures of (so sad): Shemaine and Nicole (although she is in one group photo).
Several of the girls from MLS got sick during CHA. :( It seemed none of us were really feeling that well. Plus we had issues with samples falling off our new booth. But I think the whole thing, despite a few minor glitches, went rather well.
Ok, well I think that is enough for today. :)
Have a wonderful day!!!!
