As some of you may know, I'm the newest addition to the crew at Scrapaganza. I was VERY fortunate to attend the Craft and Hobby Tradeshow this summer! I had SO much fun! I also got to attend the invitation-only launch party for ProvoCraft's newest Cricut machine, the Imagine. And just for attending, I GET AN IMAGINE! I arrived at the hotel in Chicago just 1 hour before the party started. Here was the line to get in!
Alisa took me under her wing and we "did the show" on wednesday together. I had a little list of all the manufacturers I wanted to visit, plus Alisa had her recommendations. But we were silly! Instead of making a plan or just walking up and down every aisle, we zig zagged back and forth around that building and probably walked 3 times more than we needed to! Too FUNNY!
Alisa is a fan of this gal, but I forgot her name! Alisa, comment with her name! lol
We did the make and take at the Tattered Angels booth - love the new mist colors!
I am a HUGE fan of Graphic 45, and they have a new line coming out called Steampunk Debutante. Steampunk is an art and costume sub-culture, you may hear Tim Holtz speak of it occasionally. I myself have been dabbling... and now there's a paper line for me! muahahaha! So yeah, we spent some time in the Graphic45 booth!
I managed to do the whole "NOOBIE embarrasing moment" thing but Rhonna Farrer and Heidi Swapp were very nice about it and let us take a picture with them.
Of course I HAD to see Tim Holtz! AWESOME stuff coming to the store from Tim's brands, keep an eye out!!!
And for my final photo, I will leave you with a glimpse of the strange hotel room art from our room. The hotel had this whole "modern art" theme but this... Pikachu art? LOL!
