ETA....links to 2 other great ladies I met at CHA.

This past weekend I went to CHA with my friends Carly and Charlene, all of us from Calgary, Canada but apparently I am the only one with an 'accent'. Still trying to figure that one out. We had an absolute blast! We basically did a day at the Supershow and a day at the tradeshow, although I could have spent a week at the tradeshow! I was introduced to so many wonderful ladies there, all friends of Carly and Char. Everyone was SO nice and it was great to meet some people whose blogs I follow like Anthonette, Ashley, Courtney, Tina, Kim, Maile, and Kelly. Visit Char's blog for lots of people pics from the event.

I thought I would share with you some of the product, projects and gorgeous displays from the tradeshow. I was on inspiration overload there. Everything was SO well done.

Warning....lots of unedited photos follow!

Not sure what booth this was from but look close...very funky, no?

Two Hero Arts Stamps I love and want

Darn, another one I forgot the name of, but some fun projects.

Elizabeth Kartchner's display at American Crafts (WOW)

A close up on the chalk board. I am absolutely going to try this with a frame I bought at a garage sale last summer and chalkboard paint.

Making Memories amazing suspended butterflies

and the amazing fun beneath it. I would LOVE one of these!

Cool Slice displays but what I really love is the fabric draped on the dress form

A fun project at Maya Arts...I may-a try this next Christmas (sorry, couldn't resist the pun)

Cool display at Tim Holtz booth. Vintage was definitely the prevailing theme at CHA imo

Cute Cosmo cards!

A shot from the Lillybean soup booth. Carly and I did a make and take there.

The outside of the Unity booth. I did a make and take here as well.

LOVED the Prima booth. Check out this Donna Downey bag!!

Hambly screen prints had an awesome booth

This project was on display at the Provocraft cuttlebug counter. I did two Provocraft make and takes. One with the new Cake machine and one with the cuttlebug and quilling accessories.

One of my favourite displays...Pink Paislee. Check it out!

Pretty sure this one was Melissa Frances


7 Gypsies

And Teresa Collins. I was really impressed by some of the projects in here.
