Back From CHA

I'm back from CHA and I had a blast!   It was fun to connect with so many wonderful friends and to make some new ones too.  I tell ya, the scrapbooking community is such a warm and wonderful group of people.  I'm thrilled to be part of it!  And of course there were LOTS of fabulous new scrapbooking products to see.  Trends I noticed:  circus themed papers and embellishments (I'm using some of them right now!), mustaches (huh??), more flowers and vintage-themed papers (love it all!), trinkets galore, banners (yep, they're still very in apparently), and lots of altered dress forms.  I saw many "must haves" that I can't wait to get my hands on.  Though I don't think I can see myself adding mustaches to my scrapbook pages.  Unless I can get my hubby to grow a mustache.  Hmmmmmmm.  

Here is one of the layouts I made for the Prima booth.  This is from the new Celebrate line.  I crocheted around the edge and added some Prima lace, then I created a little patchwork background.



As I mentioned above, altered dress forms were very popular at CHA.  I spotted them in several different booths.  Prima had several life-sized dress forms adorned with all the beautiful new papers and flowers.  GORGEOUS!!  I didn't know that altered dress forms were going to be so popular when I made this one for the Prima booth:

I used the new Prima laces to make the skirt.  I ADORE the new Prima flowers, lace and trinkets:


I have a lot more to share in the coming weeks!

Thanks for all the comments, ladies! Shawninaz, I bought the dress form at Ross (a big discount chain store here in Southern California). ;-)
