cha best in show

don't kill me - but i didn't want to lug my camera. but i will share some of my favs from the show! here they are in no particular order...

jenni bowlin - it's so hard to pick a couple. jenni's booth is amazing with all of her vintage goodies. jenni herself is the sweetest person - so down-to-earth! i'm choosing photograph buttons, mini alphabets and border stickers. must have them all!

prima - donna downey canvas words. these are a really great size and will add interesting texture to any project.

l letterpress from quickutz - they had some really cute martha stewart-like designs available. i'm tempted!

jillibean soup - corrugated cardboard letters and soup staples on kraft. i'm guesting for them in september and have some of this product on my desk right now. i can't wait to play!

sassafras lass - i want it all! i'll highlight monstrosity though - best in show for halloween design - that's my vote. doesn't it remind you of foster's home for imaginary friends?

october afternoon school days - i brought some home from the show. i feel blessed to be on this team. i ordered sam's backpack last night for kindergarten - he'll be modeling for me in a few short days!

cosmo cricket boyfriend line - shown here in a layout by emilie ahern. i have these papers in hand as well. can't wait for the cute chip to arrive!

7 gypsies booth was as always filled with stunning projects and innovative products. i'm highlighting the atc tray and new barcelona papers - so versatile!

hambly studios - alison kreft is such a sweetie! the booth samples were gorgeous and hambly is also selling wall art out of some of its classic prints. the frame print would look so cool on a fridge. the new scrapbooking product is gorgeous. i fell in love with the lace paper though.

no cha post would be complete without something from my favorite scrapbooking company american crafts! they introduced new paper lines, some great new thickers and embellishments too. my favorite line is blue skies. i just can't resist all that yummy orange and green!

i have an ever growing list of must buys! what's on your list?

recycled playing card embellies

ok those are too clever!
