My first CHA...(pre show)!!

Well I thought today would be a good day to share some pics from my first trip to CHA! I had the BEST time there. It was crazy busy, super fun, inspirational and so much more. I went with Amy from The Scrapbooking Studio (thanks a bunch) :) Ok so the drive was good until we hit Chicago traffic (which I totally hate), it makes me so nervous. We had meetings which seemed to last pretty much all day on Saturday & Sunday. Starting at 8 am ending around 6 or so, then it was time to meet up with people. We ended up going to sleep around 12 or 1 every night and up at 5, so I was missing my sleep and my good coffee!!

We had dinner with lots of good friends.....there is a pic of all 13 of us girls, which I don't have.

Our huge piece of cake that we all shared :)

Dinner with the Echo Park Crew..Jody, Madison & Nathanael.

I meet Tim Holtz and took a Ranger class....this was super fun!

Helped Set up the Echo Park booth...that was fun, Amy and I laughed so much at these guys!

Amy making things look so pretty!

I finally caught up with Nikki Sivils & Katrina Hunt during set up time :)

Tomorrow I will share some pics of all of the fabulous girls I finally got to meet while I was there. There are some girls that I didn't get to catch up with, hopefully another time.
Thanks for stopping by today, have a great day!
