CHA Los Angeles 2011

A week ago yesterday I left for Los Angeles, planning to stay for a few days. Mother Nature had other plans with severe winter weather back home! I ended up staying in California with family I haven't seen in years then headed up to my brother's place in Montana!! I'll make it back home.... some day!

So, sit back and enjoy my view of CHA. Meeting up with old friends and meeting ones I've only had the chance to know online!
Kelley and I worked the Spellbinders booth one day which was fun.

Oh Dawn
I am so envious that you have such a wonderful show that is CHA. You Americans are so lucky.
Here in NZ we would never see such things.
Your photographs are wonderful, but it only makes me realise on how much I am missing out.
Thank you so much for taking the time to show us the photos, I enjoyed them very much.

Great pics Dawn! It was fun just to see the incredible ideas and all the great people we "know"! How amazing a time you must have had!

Kittie said...

Thanks for sharing all of your great photos. Sure wish I could have been there.

Robyn said...

Excellent pictures, FYI I believe that the Christmas ornaments might be from a company called Outlines.

You lucky girl you--going to CHA!! I wondered where you were! I love all the pictures of the amazing things you got to see! I'd give pretty much anything to see all the merchandise in person--especially now that we're down to only one stamp store! She does a great job, but the shop is small so she can only bring in so much. Sue (suen)
