Summer CHA 2012 Recap

I flew into Chicago on Tuesday morning and the sweet Nette picked me up from the airport and we headed straight for CHA. A few misguided calculations and parking fiascos, we managed to get there by about 1:30. That didn’t leave us a lot of time since we both attending just for that day but I did manage to sneak in some photos with some crafty peeps! I thought I’d share them with you here!

The sweet Teri Anderson – She was a hoot!

Because I was there for a short period of time, I missed out on lots of photo opportunities (like Latrice, Amy Tangerine, Laurel Seakbrook, Kristina W and even Kelly Marie…… A few other peeps got some pictures so if I am in any of them, please pretty please send them to me!

The rest of the week I spent with my mom, son and niece. We hit up a lot of places in Chicago and just got home late last night! I am happy to home and gearing up for my next trip!!!
