We Came, We Saw, We Conquered... We're Tired!

CHA Summer 2008 has officially ended, and Lori and I are toast as she likes to say! WOW what a week! We've walked several miles, visited hundreds of vendors, ordered tons of new product (and some well loved stand-bys) and had loads of fun!

I am interviewing Lori right now to get a low down on her favorites and what most excited her. Bev, you may want to sit down before you continue reading....

What most excited Lori?? New Tim Holtz stamps by Stamper's Anonymous and Inkadinkadoo stamps. She is also pretty excited to have more ideas of how to use acrylic and acrylic albums... aka watch for a cool class coming soon!

What is Lori's Favorite?? The Christmas Magic line by Little Yellow Bicycle.

What most excited me?? The awesome new die storage system from QuicKutz! Wahoooo it holds ALL of their types of dies! ohh and OWLS!! oooh I am so loving all the Owl Stuff!!!

What was my favorite?? So much to choose from!! But I think it might just be a new paper company we literally stumbled upon in the aisles... Black Market Paper Society. YUM! (sorry I can't find a link)

I got so excited when I saw all what is being brought to the Turtle that I passed out and my cats revived me. I have them trained well! ROFL

It is hard to say which ones are my favourites but being a total Prima fan....heheheh....that is what caused me to pass out at the end. LOL

You guys chose well! I look forwards to seeing it all.
