CHA Chicago

CHA Chicago was a blast! Nik dropped me off on Michigan Ave on Thursday so I could meet up with Stacey and Heather from All Moments Remembered and shop for the day. I was a little nervous as we have only spoke online and never met in real life but as soon as I saw them all those feelings went away. They are two of the sweetest, funniest, craziest girls around. We spent the day in the city and had the best time. Aren't they cute? Friday was the first day of the show and it was everything I thought it would be and more. Tons of new product as far as the eye could see. Here are a few a my faves. Love these new AC puffy thickers!

Jenni Bowlin's booth was to die for and Miss Jenni was a sweetheart to boot! Here are some new labels.

Saw some really cool stuff from Pink Paislee, October Afternoon and Crate Paper. You also need to check out Chatterbox's new release too! Their booth was gorgeous! I wish I would have taken more pics but i was just in awe of everything and having a great time I didn't take the camera out as much as I should have. I am hoping Heather will email me some pics because she took tons!

The best part of this trip for me was getting to meet friends who up until now, I just spoke to online. It is so great putting a face to a name! I also got to see "old" friends and catch up with what's going on in their lives. All in all a great weekend with great people!

Thanks for sharing your CHA experience with everyone. Nothing like having our own reporter on the ground with all the imporant details of fun new products.

It looks like you 3 had a fantastic time. Chicago looks so cool (saw it on Heathers blog.) I'm glad you had a great time.
