I survived CHA.....just barely!

Let me just start by saying I had a great time at CHA. Now I need about a week to recover.

My adventure started on Friday afternoon January 27 with a phone call from Kelly Marie asking if I could lend a hand with a presentation she had scheduled. Well, sure I said, I'd love to help. The rest is a blur until this morning when I woke up feeling like someone twice my age (that'd be about 110 in people years).

On Saturday I was back to help with the final set up for Lawn Fawn land, the stamps and samples hanging on the clothesline were my handiwork. It was not as easy as it looks and took a few hours to get just right.

Once the booth was set up, Kelly and I filled a pitcher with little paper pinwheel pins. I hope everyone who got one enjoys it....making them made me want to swear and I don't swear.

We finished the day with yummy Mexican food at Ricardo's with new friends.

Oh yeah, did I mention I started Saturday at 5am with a Yard Sale....yep, how's that for great timing! 

I'll be back with more CHA pics tomorrow along with another Lily Pad Cards post.
