CHA Day 1

Hi everyone - waving at you all from Hollywood! Here we are the Scrappy Go Lucky team with some blonde who has attached herself to the team. I don't think her talents are necessarily craft related though, so I don't think we'll keep her for long.......... from left to right, Diane (Capadia), Jane (Scossie Jane), some dumb blonde, think her name is Marilyn, Mandy (owner of Scrappy-go-Lucky), and moi

This was one of my classes yesterday, the Hero Arts Stamp Boot camp. They revisited a lot of techniques like resist embossing, but managed to put a new twist to it. I will blog the cards we made later.....
and here I am with Shari Carroll - this is for Kath, one of my best crafty buddies, Shari is one of her idols.... she was totally charming and fun to talk to


and just to make Kath seriously jealous and putting a very good friendship to the test, look who else I met......... yes, Lord Timothy himself


and flying the flag for the UK, here they are, the Craftwork Cards team, their booth looked great as it always does, and they had to bring all that stuff over in suitcases!



In the evening we went to the Provocraft gala, celebrating the 5th birthday of the Cricut expression. They had a team of hip hop dancers, and to everyone's surprise/amazement/shock, Jim Thornton the CEO of Provocraft joined in and did quite a nifty little hip hop number, even spinning round on the floor at one time. He was quite a good little mover actually, and that guy ceratinly doesn't fit the usual pinstriped image of a CEO





and here's Jinger, the spokesperson for Provocraft who does all their TV stuff, getting in on the act as well





and finally, three rather tired and happy peeps, clutching their goody bags from the gala....


I promise that tomorrow I will post some inspirations for you, there are wonderful samples and ideas here, and I am snapping away like crazy, just haven't time to edit and post everything yet.

Glad to hear you're having a good time En and I'm not quite so green now as I was lucky enough to do a class with both Shari Carroll and Sir Tim at the NEC Trade Show a little while back and they're both really lovely (a great memory to keep).
