Monday Challenge, Unity Peeps, Dirty Girls, and Paris Hilton...What?and CHA Update!

Happy Monday! It's time for another Monday challenge and this one is coming to you from sunny, and chilly, southern CA! I'm here! Woohoo! Having so much fun visiting with all of my stamping friends and seeing all of the wonderful new products that are in store for us.


First up...our Monday challenge....this weeks challenge to create a masculine card. Masculine isn't always the easiest for me. You know I always want to throw a little ribbon and bling on just about everything I create! This week I decided to opt for a masculine Valentine. Take a look....





The stamps are Unity. This is from the Love Grows kit. Be sure and check out the rest of the gals.....


AJ Otto
Amber Height
Brooke Lien
Jeanne Streiff
Maren Benedict

Now on to some CHA pictures.....


First off one of my favorite paper companies on the planet! ....Crate Paper! Take a look at some of the new stuff they have coming for us.......


....this is where I start 'ooohing'...and 'aaaahing'! LOVE this stuff! ...but wait! There's more!

Oh my heck how cute is that! Don't you love this one! ...and take a look at this......

LOVE! How cute is that die cut paper! And the colors!? Fabulous! LOVE! You know I will be buying this one in bulk! ...and of course, some of my favs that I have been using the heck out of right now.....




Yeah...I'll be stalking the booth until I leave. I so totally wish that this was the show that we could buy from! You know I would leave with all of this!



It was really great to get here on Saturday. Getting off of the plane was a high moment for me. You know I'm not the best with planes! But once I got here it was so awesome to get to see my great friends from Unity. Here's one of me, Angela, Jeanne, and AJ in the booth....which is just gorgeous!
Isn't that giant Giggle Grove in the background AWESOME! Me and Brookie.....



Hey! Guess who showed up!??????


Woohooo!!!!! It's Jimmi! We were all so happy to see her! Chris and AJ hogged most of her time! Jimmi said that she came to see Mickey....


But I know it was to see Paris Hilton....


....seriously! Hey, I knew the world of paper crafts was where it's at! Paris came complete with an entourage of security and a flock a peeps waiting to see her. They had the whole place sectioned off.

It was great to also get the chance to meet some of the Unity peeps that I've had the pleasure of meeting through hip hop....


Kendra! LOVE her...and there's Maren! :)


Michelle and Daisy! :)

and.........

Shemaine! :) How exciting! It was really great to get to meet them all and to spend a little time with them.

And I met the one and only Marianne!


Later that night we headed off to the SCS cupcake reception. I got to see one of my FAVORITE people in the world EVER...Lori Craig...she's one of the sweetest people you could ever have the pleasure of meeting. I really adore her.....

It's really so great to get to see her again. It's one of the things that has made the whole plane ride worth it!
Some of the dirty girls........
Amy Sheffer, Cindy Lawrence...Jenn Balcer! Ohmyheck! Can you believe it! :) I am only bummed because our 'dirty' dinner was Sunday night and I would pick that night of all nights to end up with a migraine! Ugh! I got back to the hotel from the convention center only to lay on the bed...thinking it would just be for a minute.....I took some tylenol....AJ gave me some aleve.....but there was no fighting that one off. A few hours later I called Jenn....was really hoping to head over to at the very least catch up but my head was throbbing! Insert REALLY big weapy sad face here! :(
Now I am off to find the tylenol and get ready for the day. I will post you all again with updates in a bit. Once I figure out the video I will share a little of that as well. Hope you all have a fabulous day!
Thanks for stopping by! :)
