CHA Photos, Blog Winners & Giveaway for 4 New Stamp Sets!

Hi Everyone,

I'm back from CHA and thrilled with the response we had at the show! This post is mostly photos and short on text as I'm throwing a retirement party for my husband tonight! Leave a comment to be entered to WIN the 4 NEW Small Clear Art Stamp Sets posted at the end of this post!

My camera charger died, so I borrowed photos from Vicki and Julie - who both worked their butts off at the show and did a fantastic job!!!
This was going into the convention center


Here is a photo of our booth at the CHA Show. I will show some photos from our booth at the Craft Super Show later this week.



Here is the Make-n-Take Queen, Vicki Chrisman and some store owners making shadow box fairy cards. So many stores ordered Vicki's new Shadow Box Dies!!! They kept saying they were the hit of CHA! I will get a list of stores and post it ASAP that ordered the die(s).

The grids didn't fit in the CHA Booth, so no 'Fairy Garden Arbor' as I hoped but our revolving cupcake display was a hit!

Here I am in the middle with the talented Vicki and Julie, who were both so very Fantastic & Fun!

Now for the winners - (computer couldn't get signal at our hotel to post) The random winner Gabriela # 26 won our the Greetings from Wonderland and Mermaids Stamp Sets!

Gabriela said...
Darling jewelry armoire! Congratulations. The Seasons Friends set is so very beautiful. I'm secretly coveting it.
