Well after a long and fun week in Chicago, it's good to be home!
CHA was amazing and we had so much fun buying some amazing product and catching up with old and new friends alike! This time I was even lucky enough to squeeze in a fast and fun class with Trisha and Prima! For those signed up to take Trisha's class at Clipper Street in August--YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED! I loved the project and it was just the right amount of challenge mixed with a TON of fun product.
I have so many favorites from the show, but one that tops my list is the new Crate Paper! Now as most of you know, I have been a BIG fan of Crate Paper from the very beginning. I love all of their designs and I love them! Crate Paper is owned and run by Lisa Parkin and her amazing husband Steve. What is super cool about this is that the whole family helps out and works with them. Teresa and Sheila are Lisa's sisters and the three of them are some of the nicest people you'd ever want to meet! Crate Paper is also a GOLD sponsor for the Crop and Cruise!! Crate released 3 new lines and my absolute favorite is Prudence--it is so yummy!! This is the one that I will be using on the cruise FOR SURE! I can't wait to get my hands on this and start creating--the colors are so rich and can be used for so many layouts. Teresa and I were talking about the cruise make and takes and she thinks I should do a layout make and take instead of the originally planned card--woohoo! How awesome will that be!!! You guys are so lucky! Don't you just love them?! Here's a picture of Teresa and myself in front of "Prudence"--sorry about the poor quality of the picture--I only took my point and shoot as my Canon Rebel is too heavy to lug around the show floor!
Here's a picture of the new line--isn't it yummy!!
The other two lines are just as amazing--you will LOVE Mia and Lemon Grass just as much! These are due in stores in about 4-6 weeks so start saving your pennies!
Well I have lots more fun and exciting stuff to share with you from CHA, but that will have to wait til tomorrow:)
P.S. For those following our momma bird story--she is still doing fine--she only has two eggs and they should start hatching in the next few days if all goes well. She's been really good about letting us water the basket--I think she's use to us now and I somehow think she knows we are trying to help her. Here are a couple of pictures I took this afternoon after I watered the basket--she's so darn cute!
