More tags ...

Hi everybody! You won't believe this! Let me tell you what happened yesterday, when I was at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL to visit the Transworld's JF&A, a jewelry, fashion & accessories show - ( When we entered the building we (me and two of my scrapbook friends) saw THIS (photo): the CHA 2012 SHOW ... THE place to be when you LOVE scrapbooking (YES, we do!), crafting, card making, stamping, paper and so on ...

We were in the same building, but we couldn't go to that show, because it is only for "Members & Exhibitors" ... (By te way, I hate the huge "WELCOME" signs, lol!)  Maybe this was our chance to meet Tim Holtz there, oh no, I don't wanna think of that ... The rest of the day, we tried to focus on jewelry, fashion and other stylish and fun merchandise, and we had a fantastic day, but it was too bad that we couldn't go to the CHA 2012 SHOW to look around and maybe even do some workshops!  Wouldn't that be awesome? Maybe some other day, for now: "Dream, dream, dream ..."

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a lovely Friday and a wonderful weekend!

Hugs, Laura
