Back from CHA!

Well I am back in one piece, although it was a close call on the flight home, as muggins here left her passport in security and had to run like mad to retrieve it, and catch the plane, but I made it, and amazingly enough I don't appear to have jet lag, although am tired. It was fun meeting old friends, and seeing all the new product. There was so much fab artwork, and Wendy and I did a few make and takes, and made a few purchases! I will have all the new Distress inks from Ranger for you (they are on my site for you to peruse, but no pre-buying until I know they are on the way ), I have lots of the new Vintaj charms , Amate rings and pendants, Tim Holtz Idea-ology, all hopefully shipping in the next few weeks. There is more, and I will post these when they arrive:)
I have to say thank you to Kristen from The Scrappy Tree who took us to Disneyland where we had the best fun! She gave us gorgeous gifts and I found out I had won their New Year Challenge, how wonderful was that, and a brilliant prize which I have to find time to devour! One of the best things about going to CHA is meeting up with old friends, and just catching up.. what more could a girl want, a bit of sun, more crafting goods than you can imagine, old friends, and good company! Thank you to Wendy for letting me come with you...see you next year same time, same place! lol!
I did have my camera with me, but some of the photos are awaful.. here are a few of the best ones......
