Lisa and I are in Chicago and getting ready to meet face to face with some of our teachers, sponsors, and exhibitors. We are so excited to be promoting ScrapFest here at CHA! We will have more to tell you after our first day!

It was a fun trip getting here. We got pulled over at US customs for Lisa forgot to claim our t-shirts... ha ha! We tried giving them away to the nice US immigration officers (all men) but none of them would have looked all that great in pink!!

We also drove through torrential thunderstorms for 2 hours on top of our delay at the customs office. We did make it here after 8.5 hours and would do it all again just to be here.

Off we go. We will check in later with all of you to tell you more about our first day experience at CHA!

Today was an educational day. The trade show is not open until tomorrow. Lisa took a class by Daisy D's and she loved it. Very cool Daisy D's papers, ribbons, flowers, and buttons using a Maya Road arrow mini album. Both these companies are amazing and are sponsors at ScrapFest.

We were thrilled to see Kelly Falardeau (Memories in Motion Scrapbooking) who is exhibiting and teaching at ScrapFest in Edmonton, Chantel Mernickle and her Dad (Treasured Memories) also an exhibitor with us in Edmonton, Karen Lancaster (Karen's Creations) who joined us for both of our Ontario events, Barb Fenn (Scrapaholics) who joined us for Paris and sponsored the crop party at this event, Catherine Tachdjian (Scrapbook and Cards Today magazine) who will be joining us for her third ScrapFest event in Edmonton, Kim Jones & Cherie Nymeyer (Scrapping Bug) who are sponsors with ScrapFest and Paula Jones from Open Page Wholesalers.

It was fun seeing our Canadian friends today and we look forward to busy day tomorrow on the trade show floor. We are working on bringing you a fantastic event in Edmonton!

More to share tomorrow.

CHA Day Two!

WOW! Sooooooooooooooo many great things! We had a very productive day and we have confirmed some more sponsors for Edmonton. Very exciting! We can't give away any secrets yet... but it is all yummy!! We will be back at the Trade Centre tomorrow to meet with some more manufactures and talk ScrapFest!

We had the pleasure of meeting Jen Starr who is so excited about her classes. We also had fun hanging out with Vicki Boutin in the Scenic Route booth. Have you seen her layouts on the cover of Memory Makers and Scrapbook and Cards Today? She also has 2 more layouts in Creating Keepsakes this month.

OK, we are exhausted so we are off to bed. More to come tomorrow!

Ah yes, we certainly did!

We're just waiting on a link from the home page, but if you go to "calendar' and hit 'next' at the bottom of the page, you will see lots of fun pictures from our visit to CHA in Chicago!
