Friends, Fame and Farewells!

100_4944(1)  Well … My first visit to CHA is over … I still have a gazillion pictures to show you guys … you will tell me when you are bored … won’t you?

Today was time to say our goodbyes … but before I get to that part … I need to introduce you to a wonderful group of people … The team at Simon Says Stamp … now you guys already know that I LOVE Heidi … and over lunch I got to meet face to face with her team … we often share email conversations … but it was great to put faces to the words!100_4946(1)

In the picture from left to right … here is Lols … Me … Heidi … Steph and Sarah. We also had the pleasure of meeting the very handsome Brad/George Clooney lookalike … Mr Heidi aka Jason! Thank you guys … the wonderful Lin and I had a fab time!

The fame part takes me to the Prima booth … I totally missed it at first … but lookie … I was included in one of the sample lay outs … designed by the very talented Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. Totally cool and some beautiful words in the hidden journaling … I know … who would have thought … little ole me!

As we left it was big hugs all round … Mario … LOVE that guy … calls me Julia now don’t ya know! Lord Tim of Holtz … you know Tim … the man that can travel first class by cloud while sprinkling sunshine over the entire state of L.A with just an Idea-ology jump ring and a gadget gear! Thank you Lord Tim … for not calling security once even though I spent the last three days stalking you! THE Wendy Vecchi … Great to see you as always Wendy … hope you are feeling better soon! Dyan … for always smiling, Suze for all the shopping tips and finally to all my friends from Ranger U and the Paper & Co show in Paris … Lia, Joan, Heidi, Melissa and Melissa, Tammy, Dina, Natalie, Celine, Julie, Vicky, Patti, Jackie and everyone else … I had a ball! No farewell but a BIG Thanks goes to the Wonderful Lin Brown … she really has done an amazing job of putting up with an over excited me … for nearly a week!

Okay … that is the love fest over … here are some more pictures of yummy stuff that we saw along the way … Must go … I have a case to pack!
