First people I met, my pals from Paper Crafts Magazine, Susan Opel & Cath Edvalson. They are the nicest people, ever :)
A little surprise at the Northridge Media booth :) (I also have a dorky photo of me standing in front of this, but I will spare you...)
Some pretty stuff, this was at Pink Paislee (loved ever single thing in that booth!)
a pretty creation at Jillibean Soup - one of my fave stops at the show:
Some more pretty from October Afternoon (and there was a lot of pretty in that booth)
Me and Ella Friends Jenny Larson & Keshet Starr at the October Afternoon booth:
Another highlight of the day - getting to meet Susan McShirley of SRM Stickers. Truly one of the sweetest people I have ever met - we posted this photo on Facebook:
And the day was topped off by a great dinner with my favorite Jersey girls, Sue and Pat from Scrapper's Cove. Without them, I don't think I'd be here in Chicago for this show. They've supported my crafty efforts for a long time. So grateful to know them! Here's the enormous, incredibly delicious Strawberry Shortcake we shared for dessert and came nowhere near finishing:
So I will take more pictures today and hopefully post my faves tonight. I have a feeling that will be a really long post!
Before I go, have you voted for Gallery Idol yet?right here and view the entries. I'm seriously impressed with the talent in this group of cardmakers!
Have a great day - if you are anywhere in the U.S. - stay cool!
