and on a final note for today CHA was a big disappointment. they few big vendors who stayed for retail sales on sat were all crowded together and shopping was nearly impossible. it didn't take us long to get in and out, i waited in line to check out with paperty ink for almost 45 min.the first time i went to the booth i left, and like a dummy i went back a second time and was determined to get what i wanted. the cuttlebug people were there without any products to sell, not big name rubber stamp companies other than paperty ink, argh all the build up and for NOT!!! splitcoast had a booth and it stayed crowded, i saw from a distance the people who started it but couldn't get to the table to meet them. found a few cute ideas at various places and took a few pix of them, and gathered some info about a place in so carolina called scrapbook cottage that we are going to try to get to, check out the site it's www.ScrapBKCreations.com, and we are got info on a scrapbook treasure hunt to do in tampa. we are going in sept for a shopping trip for a week end in tampa to check it out, www.scrapbooktreasurehunt.com. ok enough chat for today and several to come i'll be off now to work on some of the swaps i have to finish. have a quiet evening an enjoy the hall of fame football game i'm not interested in either team but thank goodness it's TIME FOR FOOTBALL!!!!!!!!!
