Final Days of Summer

Since it is already August that is such an appropriate name for the kit from A Million Memories this month. Michelle brought my kit to me at CHA so I set myself a different challenge - to design my layouts without the pictures - while I was at CHA and then find pictures to fit at home - I usually work the opposite way - pictures first. Can you tell a difference? I think they are more design driven - not as photo centered.

Isn't the kit so pretty and shabby!

And one of my new Webster's projects as promised:

Me and Brandin at the Webster's booth at CHA. Brandin and Terri were so, so nice!! I am so in love with all of the new releases and have so many ideas swirling in my head after seeing them in the booth.

My layout displayed in the booth with the new embellishments - these are so amazing in person - can't wait to get these!

And people you of the best things about CHA was the online friends that I had the pleasure of meeting! Stacey, Patti, Erin Yamake, Cari, Julie Fen Bazar, Brandin , Terri, Amy Tara, Anabelle, Danielle, Dina Wakely, Norma Kennedy, and I know I am forgetting others so please forgive me.

Gayle, Cari Fennel, Me - Let me say one of the most gorgeous booths - Prima - we were drooling!! Cari was incredibly sweet and so much fun to chat with! Like a long time friend! Another star!

Julie Fei-Fan Balzar & Me - I LOVE her work and think she is one of the first mixed media scrappers, she really paved the way for the rest of us! I have been a fan of her's forever and she was so sweet and friendly!

And my MOST heard comment at CHA - you are SO TALL! lol - ok, for those that don't know and seeing as you can't see me online, I am 5'10" and not exactly a small size frame. :)

So the end of summer? It doesn't feel like it here - we still have our family vacation coming up next week, I'm looking forward to that and trying to finish up assignments this week before leaving. And trying to catch up with everyone's blogs - so fun to read and see what you have been doing this summer. See you soon!
