I Went to CHA! CHA! whooohoooo!!:)

This had to have been the best weekend for me! I was lucky to get to go to CHA:) Can I just say that if you have never been to a CHA, you definitely have to go at least once! It's like being in one HUGE Candy Store:) There were soooo many booths w/free make-n-takes, put it this way, LOTS of free fun stuff were given away! The highlight of my visit was to meet Robyn (My Pink Stamper!) & Karlee of course. They are the sweetest & most genuine ladies you can ever meet! I even got to meet Miranda & Natalie from Custom Crops -very sweet ladies also! In this picture Robyn is holding the present I had made for her & Karlee since this was their birthday weekend!
These were the birthday goody bags I had made for both of them! I printed the tags on my computer & used my stampin up window word punch to punch them out so they each had a personalized gift! I wanted to make it special for them! I know they love bling so I put lots of pink adhesive rhinestones for the sprinkles on the cupcakes! I was able to use my favorite little library clips to hold the bag closed instaed of using ribbon this time! They looked even cuter in person!

Robyn had a HUGE announcement at CHA, it was that she has come out with her very own stamp line!! How cool is that!!! Of course I had to have these adorable brand new stamps of hers, look how cute they are! The 1st set is "Simple Sweet Occasions" & the 2nd one is "Everyday Occasions"! Her other big announcement was that she was launching her 2nd 2-disk DVD! It wasn't available for purchase on this day, but we were able to pre-order it! Oh, I had also purchased one of her new Pink stamper T-shirts, I will have to wear it & take a picture to show you!
This was the free make-n-take we did @ her booth. When I was done, I had Robyn, Karlee, Miranda & Natalie sign it for me! So this was definitely the best make-n-take for me since it was signed by 4 cool & creative ladies!:)

To the left here is Me & Karlee, I was so excited to see her finally arrive @ CHA safely & in one piece:) To the right is Karlee & Robyn, they are so cute & very nice ladies! It was definitely an honor for me to meet them:)

To the left were cute postcards Robyn was signing! She signed a note to each one of my boys! On the right was the card she demo'd @ the Provo Craft booth & I felt special when she gave it to ME when she was done!
Provocraft also had some BIG news! to the left is a brand new machine that will be launching in April this year~A "Cricut Cake" machine that will decorate beautiful cakes like you see on the right!! HOW AWESOME IS THAT!!!

On the left was the make-n-take we did decorating a cupcake that the machine had cut out! (my cupcake got ruined in transit) & the box was from the Sweet Treats cartridge! The picture on the right is my son winning a Cricut Cartridge "Designer Calendar" @ won of the drawings @ the provocraft booth! They had given everyone one of those cute chef hats he is wearing!
Another one of my highlights @ CHA was meeting the spokesperson for Provocraft "Jinger Adams"! What a SWEET  person she is. I felt like we've known each other forever! I had to tell her that I love her "Cartridges in a Minute" videos & I was able to ask her directly about more features being added to the Gypsy! She had advised that we update our Gypsy's once a month for all the updated information that will benefit all of us!!!! This was sooooo Exciting!!!
These were a few other make-n-takes I made there. The left picture was @ The "Taylored Expression" booth & I have to apologize because I don't remember which booth I was @ when I made this adorable pink polka dot box!

Here are my boys showing off a few of the items they had made in the kids zone @ CHA! Let me tell you, if your kids want to go with you to CHA, let them, because my boys had a  BLAST! they are already planning for next year!

This is it! We were done for the night! Like I said before, if you haven't gone to CHA before, you have to at least try to make it once! I promise you, it will not disappoint! LOTS & LOTS of fun stuff & wonderful people to meet!! Have a wonderful night everyone & thanks for visiting!
