summer cha part 3 (and giveaway)

CHA is officially over, but guess what?! Today, I’m finally posting pictures from opening day of Summer CHA 2010! I know I’m behind on posting, but there’s a reason for that, haha. 😉

Tuesday, July 27th: The floor was busy, busy, busy! Everyone’s exhibit looked amazingly beautiful; they were all loaded with inspiration. I worked mostly at the Imaginisce booth doing make and takes that feature the itop and the latest tool, the irock. The irock was a huge hit. Everyone wanted to give it a whirl! Later on, I stopped by to briefly help at the Punky Sprouts and Zutter booths.

Below are a handful of photos from the show floor on opening day. Some of these faces you might recognize. 😉

At the Punky Sprouts booth, it was always fun and crazy!

Kiki Art partnered up with Zutter at this show! L to R: Nan, Nana, me, Kiki

Suzy and Tricia are HILARIOUS! Here, we were trying to do a make and take, haha!

When you’re waiting in line, here’s how to stay entertained. DANCE! 🙂

I dropped by Nikki‘s booth. I look so gross here, haha!

I ran into a fellow Zutter Zister. Pam‘s so incredibly sweet.

I had to say hello to my friend, Stephanie, owner and designer of Bella Blvd.

I finally met Becky! She’s so adorable and full of energy!

Kiki, owner of Kiki Art, has become one of my good friends. I HEART this girl! 🙂

I wasn’t joking when I said that I was swamped, hehe. 🙂 …and these are just a handful of the photos from the first day. I also met up with Deana and Jing-Jing, but for some reason we didn’t take photos when we first met up. We must’ve been to busy drooling over all of the new products being released.

Overall, it was definitely a good day! …and because I’m feeling generous, I’m doing another giveaway for an exclusive freebie from CHA. How about a free Making Memories apron?!

Leave a comment to this post telling me how you know/found out about my blog, and your name will be entered into the drawing. You have until Sunday, August 1st by 11:59 pm to play!

Stay tuned for more pictures from Day 2 of CHA. 😉

PS: I fly home today. California, here I come. I totally miss my babies, and I can’t wait to cuddle them to pieces. 😉 Oh, and don’t forget — Kiki Art DT call! I want to see all of you talented ladies applying to this one!
