CHA 2016 Highlights!

Enjoy my highlights at
the CHA 2016 MEGA SHOW!
Arriving at CHA
The show was overwhelming... I knew that some people were there and never saw them.  So many booths to checkout... tons of make & takes.  Not enough time in 2 1/2 days! Sorry for the long post.  This is only a sampling of the pictures I took... There were over 400 pictures on my iPad from CHA!
Saw a few of Altered Pages partners from the past...
Royal Langnickel

Chatted with Susan Brown at Amazing Mold Putty!

Stopped by to see Eileen Hull, she was busy being video taped!!!

I did take time to do an Eileen Hull recipe box (above)
