What fun!!!

Today was an awesome day for me!!! I had my picture taken with Tim Holtz after watching a 2 hour long demonstration by him. I was on the front row of his demo table too!  He showed all of his new products including his new Vagabon electric die cutting machine that will be out in October. I learned many new tricks and techniques.  He is super fun and a wonderful demonstrator.

I cannot wait until I can get my hands on this new Vagabon Electric die cutting machine.  It has a one horse power electric motor that cuts metal, heavy chip board, thick cork board, acryclic, and just about anything you want to cut including "paper. (smile)   It will start shipping in October and I will be taking Preorders for it when I get back homel

My favorite booth was Graphic 45.  It was gorgeous!  The booth and all sales people were dressed in the Alice and Wonderland theme to match their Hallowee'en in Wonderland collection.    I can't wait to show you their newest things and everything else I ordered  too! 

Another beautiful booth I spent a lot a time at was Heartfelt Creations!  They are wonderful people and so talented!  You are going love their newest stamps and dies.  What fun!!!

I could go on and on about the people I met and the many booths I visited, but I must get to bed.  Jon is picking me up in the morning and we are heading up to the Upper UP in Michiagan where I will be getting to gether with many friends. 

Oh, and I must thank my neice Cathy for keep me on track and in the right aisle or I would never have gotten through the show.   She has learrned I get distracted so easy and jump from one aisle to another and then forget where I am.    Can you tell we had a great time???

You look "gawgeous" dawlin', blue is definitely your color! I can't wait to hear all about your trip and this new machine of Tim's. It's manufactured by Sizzix I believe and will most likely be an excellent product. I have started to build my Sizzix line, you may be enabling me with this one . . . LOL! Be safe in your travels, so glad you had a wonderful time at CHA.
