Ohhhhhhhhhh my goodness. 

I'm SO sorry we weren't able to be posting on the blog more during our CHA trip but we just NEVER had time to get online!! We were so crammed busy with classes and the show that we probably got about 10 hours of sleep in the 5 nights we stayed in Los Angeles!  *Grinz*  But it was a freakin' BLAST!!!

Let's go over some of the highlights of the show! We've got TONS of photos of new product and inspirational projects! We would like to know what YOUR favorite CHA W2011 release was?

Shelly, Rae - (with a "Y")  and Bonnie getting ready for a Smooch Spritz class

Prima - It's not just for Scrapbook Pages!

I just LOVE this little Angel album by Kaisercraft!

The ZVA Booth

Our girl, Angelica Franssen's design work on display!!

Rae & Krissy loving one of Angelica's projects!

Aren't these so cute? These are brand new MDF Off the Page pieces by Kaisercraft!

Let's see what was at the Timster's Booth...

The new Stickle colors - AWESOME!!!!

The new (and on their way) DISTRESS STAIN!!! OMGosh! 
Wait until you see how awesome this stuff is!!!!!!!!!!!!


Tattered Angels Technique class - This class was truly fantastic!

So, do you think she's a little overstimulated by the incredible SIZE of the show!?

The goodie bag from ART-C's mixed media class

The goodies from Technique Tuesday's FIRST class 

Every once in a while, when there is a break in the drool we sneak in Savage photos!
Deb, Captain Obvious and Rae - With a "Y" 

One can always spot a true Scrapbooker... Simply follow the flash!

Oh there's those fabulous Distress Stains again!!


Check out THIS fashion show - ladies!  Can YOUR paper do this?

Amazing aren't they?!

A final parting shot that was taken of our bathroom. 

I can't seem to find the photo of our ROOM which is by and far the scariest hotel room I've ever seen! If anyone grabbed a photo please send it to me and I'll get it posted. There wasn't a  single clear spot to sit in that room - what with all the product being thrown about - and then Rae - (With a "Y") rolling around in it!
