I'm trying to get back to normal so for today I wanted to share some happy mail I got when I finally got home from CHA and a few pictures from the event. This is going to be a semi long one so if you like feel free to scroll through.
First up, my happy mail! I pre-ordered the new 2012 Copics a couple weeks ago from Scrap-Mart. I totally forgot about that, so was really excited to tear in to the packaging! They also sent a $10 gift certificate, woo hoo, more shopping to do! Way cool!
Here's a really amazing set I received from my Secret Sister Swap for January, Gail Woo. How lucky am I?! Very lucky! She did an amazing job with the mini bottle holder and the cute post it note holder with some lovely accessories to go along with it. Mahalo Gail!!
And lastly I got Miyako from Sister Stamps in a release hop I won from Island Scrapbooking. I am definitely happy to add her to my collection along with the little bag of punched flowers. Arigato IS!
It's only been a few days and I'm already going through withdrawals from missing Renate, Rosemary, Sandie, Irina and a whole bunch of other fabulous ladies from this week's CHA convention. CHA is a whole other world come to life. We read each others blogs and develop friendships here. It's so awesome when you finally come face to face. Here are a few pictures of some really lovely ladies... Enjoy!
While we were setting up we had a lovely visit from LLLC DT member Jing Van Opstal! She is soo cute and really sweet! It was really nice to finally meet her and really nice to see her through out the show.

Here's a picture of my new friend, Patricia Serrano, who was also working in Sparkle's booth. She stopped by on her breaks to do our make & takes. She's so nice & she loved doing the make & takes!
Alrighty I think I'll stop for now. I'll share a few more tomorrow. All the pictures will be posted on my FB page and some in the La-La Land Crafts FB page as well. If you see your picture there please feel free to tag yourself or anyone else you recognize. Thanks! I'll leave you with this pretty LA sunset photo...
Mahalo for leaving me so many wonderful comments while I was gone. I'm trying to catch up with everyone's posts so please be patient while I get back in the groove. :) Mahalo for stopping by!! Have a great evening or morning!
