At the ZIG class, I did find some more fun stuff to use for coloring. They have this new Clean Brushable pens, that works kind of like coloring pencil. Your can brush your stamp with it, then using watercolor brush brush along the lines to pull or spread the colors for watercolor effect. Super cool. I ordered a 12 set and they gave me some samples as well. Will make a post for this technique as soon as I can.
They also have alcohol ink and the price are definitely more reasonable than Copic, but since I already have a Copic collection, I'll stick with Copic.
Then, let's see, more fun pics. LOL, are you tired yet looking at tons of pics? Well, today is my last CHA post. First up, is the Amy Tangerine collection at American Crafts booth. So fun & lots of pretty texture.

I don't share many scrapbook layouts on my blog here, but I do love scrapbooking. I have quite a few scrapbooking idols. One of them is the fabulous Kelly Purkey. I love her fun style and not only that, I also love following her travel adventures. She also has moved States more often than anybody I know and I admire that. I often want to try living in other States, but so far hasn't been able to do so. So thrilled that I finally get to meet her.

Kelly is also has very good taste in fashion 9if you follow her blog, you know what I am talking about) and I was so honored when she commented on how she loves my outfit. The rare occasion I wear a skirt and being all stylish. Later she even repeat the compliment on FB because she couldn't remember whether she mentioned that to me or not. Hah... sorry, I am gushing here..., but seriously to be complimented on my fashion choice by Kelly is a big deal. :)
Well, there I went all over the place. Earth to Vera, back to CHA. While I was at Studio Calico booth chatting with Kelly, I also took quite a few pic of layouts that they have One of my favorite is this one, made by the talented Susan Weinroth.

Next, I found La-La Land Crafts booth. I recognize some of their images, but I am not too familiar with this line. They do have cute stamps, though.

On the last day, I actually ended up working at Love My Tapes booth. The owner remembered me from last year Super Show and asked me if I could help out working on the booth on the last day. Since I do use their products and pretty familiar with their stuff, I thought why not. Brush up on my sales skill here. :) And, silly me, I forgot to take pics of the booth. This is the only pic I manage to get, with Shemaine (she on My Little Show Box) who also used to work for Love My Tapes.

Anyway, now that we are through with CHA, it's time to go back to card making. I can't remember whether I have shared this card or not, but here's my card for today. :)
And, I have a fun announcement next week. Can't share it yet, but let just say I have a fun new adventure waiting. There will be lots of cuteness and it makes me practice coloring even more. Stay tune and stay cool!
