Hello From CHA!!

Have you missed seeing me in blogland??? Bev Gerard (TexasGrammy), Pam Hooten (Iris), and I left for CHA last Thursday. We had an interesting thing happen to us: our connecting flight in Phoenix was cancelled due to weather so we had to stay over night and missed the opening of CHA. Oh well...at least we made it and today Bev and I went to Disnayland....Mickey was leading the band around the square in the above picture!
Looks like Bev has two new friends!!!

We are having such a good time...I have met sooo many friends!!! These are the Texas girls...Bev Gerard (TexasGrammy), me, Jeanne Streiff (Jeanne S), and Carolyn King (Cammie).

This was taken at the Eclectic Paperie party on Saturday night...Michelle Fischer (sdiegogal), Bev Gerard (Texasgrammy), Pam Hooten (Iris), and me.

Whoohoo!!! I finally got to meet Tosh Leyendekker (Stamps4funinCa) and Michelle Rodgers (Lady2cu) owner of Stamper's Dream. I looked for those two ladies all day...guess where we finally met.... In the bathroom!!!! tooo funny!!!
Bev and I found sweet little Anne Harada (Itsapassion) .....another Texas gal!!!!

I finally met Dawn Easton (TreasureOiler)...we have been blogging friends for quite a while and we were on the DirtyDozen team togehter.

I finally got to meet two of my Clear Dollar Stamps DT members, Nancy Grant (inkcicles) and Katie Renz...aren't they cute!!!

We met up with Jenn Balcer at the Splitcoast booth and I got to meet Harriet (hskelly), one of my SCS challenge chasers!!! Bev, Broni (waterchild12), and I were at the EK Success booth taking a class when in walks Julie Ebrsole (JulieHRR)...what a cutie pie!!!


We found Karen Hunsaker (Imastampin) working in the Spellbinders booth....she is one of the new Rubbernecker DT members and I was really excited to meet her!!!

It's now midnight California time which means my body still thinks it's 2:00 AM...yikes!!! I'm off to bed...we still have one more day at CHA tomorrow and then it's home on Wednesday. I will have some product pictures for maybe Wednesday night .....the new Nesties for one!! Thanks for stopping by!!!
