 Day 2 at CHA,and we cant believe that it is almost over....How sad is that!!! Krissy, Barbara, Kim and I are on a world wind tour of scrappy goodness. and soooo much fun!. We even had a moment or 2 to do get some Make and Takes done today. One of the highlights of the show is watching those top designers do their thing!! Especially when they are demonstrating new product. We even managed to learn a few new techniques that we will be sharing in the future.
Here is our welcome sign. The weather has been hot hot hot. Yesterday topped 105 degrees. But today was much nicer. 90...

 These hands were made for scrapping...Guess who!!!

 Well if you guessed the Timster, you were right. Watching Tim work his magic is always a treat.

Kim and I managed to sneak in a Make and Take with Anna!!! She is a real sweet heart and a wonderful teacher. Patient, and kind, and oh so good!!! I have never done a layout so fast..And with Anna's tips, it was so darn easy!! Here is Anna and I after the layout lesson.

This is the layout I completed in less than 30 minutes. We used scraps of paper left over from a previous project we did. Who knew that scraps, and little bit of  ink, stamps,  spray and a few flowers and buttons would go a long way!!

Here is Kim and Anna after the layout session. 

This is the beautiful layout that Kim did. There were 5 of us taking  the class with Anna, and each one of our layouts was so different and gorgeous. Check out the stamps we used on the layouts. Gorg....That's all I can say.

 Here is Barbara doing a Make and Take of a beautiful canvas banner.

Well, I did take pics of some beautiful inspiration, but they will have to wait until I get back to Florida. It's late, and we have to be well rested for our last minute run at CHA in the morning... 
Oh yea...One more thing...
We ate, ate and ate again..Thanks to Krissy, who was always hungry...
No matter where we went, Kim and I always ordered a Tiramisu to split for dessert.

 This one was from Giordano's.

This is before the dessert...I was surprised we even had room for dessert after all the food we ate... Deep Dish...yum...
