Tim Holtz and Fred the Flamingo

CHA Chicago

Fred and I are just back from CHA and we had a great time. We saw lots of great stuff!  Over the next few days I will be posting lost of photos of the great time we had. I wanted to show ya'll this one first, though. Of course Tim Holtz was there doing lots of demos on the new products that he released from Sizzix. Lots of great dies! I think my fave would be the Paper Rosette Strip Die - you should go check it out.

Anyway, as Fred and I were making our way around the floor checking out the stuff, we had to stop and get our pic taken with Tim. If you have never seen Tim do a demo or had the chance to talk to him, he is SUPER nice. Of course, the lights at a trade show are WONDERFULLY flattering so everyone looks great in the photos they take there :( 
 And, of course, I saw a ton of stuff that I couldn't live without in the booth! My absolute faves are these simply beautiful ribbons. I will have to have one in every color. I cannot wait to have them. If I could have figured out a way to steal them of the wall while I was there I would have. :) 
Are those rosette ribbons the cutest thing you have ever seen? Now, pretty much every one at the show who had ribbon had a rosette ribbon. But these were the BEST in my opinion. For one they were the perfect size - the rosettes, were just about a half inch, so I am thinking they will be great on a page, a card or a project. Second - they were attached to a WIDER piece of netting, so they will be easy to SEW down on something. Perfect right? I didn't find these in Tim's catalog, so I am not sure what line they are from. 
Be sure to stop back by, as I will be posting more new items and photos that we saw. There were so many new, cool things. I also have the projects that I made in classes from Prima and others.
Have a great day!
