Butterfly Garden Launch: CHA Los Angeles 2011

The Craft and Hobby Association Convention (CHA) is the largest craft convention in the world - and what an exciting time it was last week in Los Angeles as I saw the launch of my first full paper collection with Pink Paislee - 'Butterfly Garden'. It was a great time of catching up with some old friends, and making lots of new ones. The Pink Paislee booth was buzzing with lots of activity and the Butterfly Garden collection won quite a few hearts :) .... Thought you might like to see a few photos ...  I didn't get as many detailed shots as I would have liked, cause I got too caught up in the excitement! Ooops! But if you want to see close-up details of the collection itself, I have some detailed images here, and on the Gypsy Chick Facebook Page here.
Here I am with the owner of Pink Paislee, Rebecca (left) in front of the

Still can't believe we graduated from the same small-town College
in Ohio some years ago. What a small world! :)

Hi friends .... had the most incredible time at the recent Craft Hobby convention (CHA) in Los Angeles!
