Confessions of a Paper Ho - Part 2

So I couldn't wait to show off the awesome T-Shirt I created using the blinkies that Echo Park had created for a Facebook contest. The contest was to use on of the blinkies as our Facebook Profile photo and then they would randomly give away paper if they spotted you posting on Facebook. Well, I took it to a whole new level buy grabbing some iron-on transfer paper and one of my hubby's white T-Shirts and creating my own shirt!

Now, I've been a fan of Echo Park since the very beginning and I started a tradition of getting my picture taken with Madison at each of the shows... All of the guys LOVED my fun shirt idea! Living up to my Paper Ho name they gave me the new Happy Days line as a thank you! Seriously, Echo Park is the BEST!!!!

Next we had to head by the ProvoCraft booth to score some free magazines and were asked to stay for one of the Classes! Jinger was our fabulous teacher and we got to play with the E2 machines. The project was SUPER cute... but it was about 20 worth of LUMBER! Seriously!!! When I get them assembled I will post them. I was REALLY grateful for my rolling suitcase at that point!

We also ran into Nikki Sivils in our Day One wanderings. And I just had to snap a photo of her for my friends Tessa and Natalie! Nikki is a sweetie!

Then I had to take a brief brake from my schmoozing to take a Copic class. It was basically an informational class but I did learn some good things! I *wish* that we could have taken home the markers with us, LOL! But I'm glad we got to play with them a bit!

After class we wandered some more and stopped by the Globecraft Memories booth! I had to visit the sample that I had created for them! Yep, I wanted to get in the whole wall so I will do a separate post to show off my project but it's the middle one on the bottom row...

Here's a look at a truly showstopping booth, the Graphic 45 Booth. I could spend hours in there looking at all of the gorgeous projects that they put together for the show!!!

Lori and I also got to take the Tube-A-Licious class from SRM Stickers. There were 200 people in our class and space was TIGHT but we created some really fun decorations! I will be sharing those in a post very soon!!!

Check back tomorrow for more fun from the CHA Show and possible a giveaway announcement!
