Pictures from CHA

Good morning fellow blogging friends! I hope you are all well:)
My jetlag is getting better thank goodness so I am back in my craft room today:) I had a good clean up yesterday......I left it in rather a mess I must confess! I have been itching to get back to creating, but wanted to spend some quality time with my family as I know I have a very busy few months ahead:)
I have been asked by the very lovely and extremely talented Christine Emberson if I would like to visit Hope and Chances and do a class...... Wow! what an honour:) The dates and times are to be confirmed so I will keep you all informed!
Now that I have my feet back on the ground I hope to blog more regularly and I have also began to video a few tutorials (not quite as professional as Sues though), I just need to edit them and I will upload them very soon.
I thought you might like to see a photo's I took at CHA.......not many of me though:)

This one has to be one of my favourites.....Marisa Job, Angelica Turner, Emma Lou, Linda Bontrager and me at the Heartfelt Creations Booth:) The biggest high light of my time in California:)Words just can't express how I felt when we met! Such wonderful and amazing people......:)

Tim Holtz :)....I could spend hours watching him! He is just so enthusiastic and passionate about art and crafting! ......Unfortunately I couldn't fit him in my suitcase:(

The totally exquisite Spellbinder booth. Don't you just love it?

Justrite Booth......Wow! the cards are just stunning! I just love creating with these stamps and dies:)
Finally a picture of me (not a brilliant one) with the Hollywood sign in the background:)


We didn't see anyone famous however when we got back to Heathrow Pierce Bronson was waiting for his luggage.....umm oh yes! I did go a little weak at the knees:)
That's all from me for now but I will be back later with another post!
Take Care everyone:)

  1. HI Nikki. Thank you for sharing the fab pics of the CHA. Looks like you had a wonderful time. I am a bit puzzled about something on the last pic. There is a large beautiful blue line across the top of the pic, where the dull grey sky should be. What is that, someone mentioned that long, long ago we had the same, they said it was called sunshine! : ) You lucky thing, not only going to the CHA but getting a fix of sunshine also!!! Take care.

  2. Good morning Nikki thank you for sharing your photos it must have been an amazing trip. Have a great day. Jackie

  12. Hi Nicky
    Have just found your blog after watching you demo on C & C. I know I'm a bit behind. just loved the cards you demo'd. Especially when you showed us what to do with the doily's. You seem to have had a good time at the CHA. Can't wait for the products to come over to the UK.
