CHA Convention Anaheim 2012 Photos!!!!

Well here's my pictures from CHA. It was so much fun!!! It's great to see new product but I will be honest I don't care about it once I'm there. All I want to do is hang out with my lovely friends from all over the world!

Here's the entrance to the show.

 Here's Diana, me, Angie and Patti Jo on Saturday to set up the booth.

 Saturday night Angie and I went to dinner at McCormick and Schmick's with Yamille and her friend Marie. Angie and I went to Puterto Rico in Novemember to teach at Yamille's Scrapbook store.

I love this picture of me and Angie

 Here's the booth when we arrived at the convention on Sunday morning.

 Here's Cabio, Diana and myself.

 Here's Patti Jo and Diana.

 Here's the Magnolia Sweden booth. I just LOVE this sign. I could so have this in my bedroom! LOL!

 Here's some work from my fellow Magnolia DT sistahs! Oh the talent!
This entire booth is oozing with it! My purple card is peeking out on the bottom shelf! :)

 There's John and the booth.

 I could have this sign in my room too!

 I have no idea what booth this was at but it's GORGEOUS! All made out of paper.

 Angie and I and the mega talented Sandie Dunn!

 My buddies from WAY back popped over to see me. Juanita and Jennifer. I ♥ and miss these girlys! It was so good to see them!

 Here's Suzan and Jacque. These ladies put us to work making pillow boxes to give out to people at CHA. It was a BLAST! Suzan is a busy little bee she colored hundreds of images to stick on these boxes. Both of these ladies are absolutely a delight to work with. ♥

 Sunday night Patti Jo taught us how to make paper flowers out of dies. This is so much work to do and even more work to put a class like this together. It was so much fun. Thank you Patti Jo!

 I had asked another person to take a photo and this poor guy had a row of cameras to take pictures with. He was a great sport! Here's..

 On Monday night Diana took us all out to Bubba Gump Shrimp. What a blast we had. It's everyone in the previous picture but this time Suzanne joined us.

 This is such a great picture of Diana and Suzanne! ♥

 Suzan, Bev and Jacque. These ladies had me laughing so hard. I sure do miss them already!

 Here's our waiter Eddie. I think he had the hots for Diana. He even made her dance! :)

 Me, Angie, Sharon and Diana.

 Here's me and Bev!
After over 2 years of working with her it was such a pleasure to finally meet her. ♥ 

 Me, Jacque and Bronlyn. Bronlyn is from Australia. She had the Koala Tilda made and gave me one! I seriously cannot wait to make her a card with it!

 Here's Patti Jo, Suzan, Angie, Jacque, Michelle, Bev and me on the last day of the convention.

Here's Michelle, me and Bev.

 Here's Suzanne making me look even shorter then I already am!
It's a great picture of us though.

That was my trip! I can't wait for Summer CHA in Chicago!
