A card and some CHA fun!

I'm here is sunny CA, and just drinking up the sunshine before I head home tomorrow. It has been so fun here at CHA and there has been plenty of inspiring eye candy! This card I made just before leaving for CA and you know me and birds....we flock together (groan). I made the branches and blooms using papertrey's new set. The bird is acrylic, I can't remember the brand and I'm not at home to look. I used my ranger glossy product to glue the 2scoops BG paper to the back and then set this oversized bird on the branches. I loved the difference in scale, I thought it highlighted the bird so well. The little sentiment is also by papertrey (mixed messages set).
Some fun photos from CHA. I was saying to the girls the other night that it just amazes me how much everyone is just like they seem on their blogs....truly delightful! Here is a spontaneous picture that happened on of the aisles of the show. Lots of faces I'm sure you recognize. I do notice that I am usually in the back of all the photos....gotta love being tall!
Some of the eye candy I was talking about. These are flowers made of grunge board. They are so beautiful IRL!
I was so excited to see one of my favorite fabrics come to paper life! Heather Bailey has her "fresh cuts" now in paper form. Looking forward to ordering some of this!
I'm out the door and back to the show. I am looking forward to going home and hugging my family....I miss them tons!

Hi S, I bet you're having a real ball there (even though it's officially "work")! Those grungeboard flowers are beautiful! As are the papers - safe journey home....I'm really looking forward to hearing more from everyone and these gorge products being released! bx

OUTSTANDING photos!1 I love seeing everyone and the products...it's scrapbook/card heaven. I can't wait to get my hands on that Heather Bailey line, ooooooh. In the flower photo, at the extreme lower right, that blue flower looks like the brad is the to of a birds head and eye. Is that what it is? I know you must be tired so a special TFS to you for going the extra mile for us. TFS.
