My CHA day started way too early. I was awake probably by 2am and on my way to the airport by 3.30am. The airport is about 45 minutes from my house and my flight was 6am. Arrived in Chicago and was welcome by the heatwave. Drop my bag at the hotel, meet up with my MIL and her sister, and went straight to the convention.
I know right away I am in trouble when I saw Inkadinkado stuff. You know me, I cannot resist cuteness and that's what they have. Lookie, lookie here at their new Christmas stamps. Sorry about the shadow, booth lighting makes it quite hard to get good pic.

There were over 200 booths, so there was lots of walking!! Lots of make and take as well. One of my favorite booth is definitely Penny Black booth, where I found Kathy Racoosin. She's so sweet and nice. Love her and love her works. And, of course, I love Penny Black stamps. Lots of cute new stamps coming out!

The fabulous card samples at Penny Black booth. My favorite is
the bottom right corner one.
I could just stand there and admiring all their cards. The images are soooo cute and the coloring on these cards are simply amazing!! Next, is the adorable booth of Doodlebug Design. I love how cute & cheerful their booth was. With Santa and elves peeking, makes you want to come in and join the fun.
Of course, besides seeeing all the new products, the fun parts of the show was seeing old and new blog friends. I was so thrilled that I was able to catch up quite a bit with the always smiling Kelly Marie from Lawn Fawn and the super sweet Tiffany who's there teaching at Faber Castell booth. I got some hints from Kelly that the new releases from Lawn Fawn going to be fabulous. More cute critters!! Can't wait!
