CHA Trade Show – Part III

What a day! Started that I wanted to eat cereals in my hotel room before rushing out and realizing the milk in the fridge was frozen solid rock. Then I rushed out – the line at Starbucks a hundred miles long – I only could grab my coffee and rush out, realizing that I lost my favorite necklace on the way. I thought that would be the worst day ever- LOL – but it wasn’t. I went to the myStampBox Table and helped Bettina out for two hours.

Here is the display of the work of our Designteam.

Then I rushed to an exciting meeting with Jana Holstein, Vanessa Spencer and Jennifer Jackson – Editors at Stampington – and they had planned to video tape me while doing a Challenge Layout. We went to the press room where they have a little extra box with a table and chair where you can have private press meetings and I got some materials I had no clue I would get and I had 20 minutes time for this.

I had only a scissor – no paper trimmer or cutter- so just ripped the papers apart – LOL

Here is Jana filming- she is sooo sweet. I’m so glad I finally got to meet her – it was like we have known each other from all our email contacts.

I couldn’t believe I did this in 20 minutes- because usually I take 3-5 hours for a layout- LOL. We hadn’t had a picture and the cut out one of me on a published Layout in Somerset Memories(too funny)

I used Glimmer Glaze and Glimmer Glam with it also – our new Tattered Angels products – so that was fun!

I couldn’t snap a better picture – they took it with them to be photographed professionally. The journaling by the way is: NO – Why do I always forget to pack the right shoes? CHA Winter 2010.

Here are Vanessa Spencer, Jana Holstein and me together

It was so awesome! I will let you know when it goes life online.

On my way to the Tattered Angels Booth I snapped a photo of Julie doing awesome Make ‘n Takes at the Sakura Booth.

Here are some photos of the Tattered Angels Booth

Here is Celine demoing

And Heidi Swapp

Heidi is the sweetest person in the world! She looked at me at the private Tattered Angels Room and must have seen that I look hungry- LOL – and gave me her sandwich. She literally saved my life as this was in the afternoon my very first meal.

I did my Demos – I have no photos of it – but Sascha and Maria were there and snapped a lot- can’t wait to see them. It ws pretty fun to get to play with the new products and tell the people how they work (while figuring it out- LOL).

Afterwards I went to the hotel room…or I should say crawled  – my feet there swollen. Bettina and I had dinner with the Canadian Scrapbooker  Magazine Crew.

The food was delish yummie (am I talking too much about me being hungry? LOL).

It was sooooo much fun – I laughed so hard ….my belly hurt- LOL. Leica Forest is such a funny Sweet heart – I’m so happy we finally got to meet.  Here is the whole fun crew

Canadian Scrapbooker Team Jackie Ludlage and Katharina Doyle with Connie Nichols and Heather Starosielski. Barb from Scraptivity and myStamp BOX team Leica Forrest, Bettina von Gross and me.

Alrighty – off to another day and unfortunatley last day at CHA for me.
