Seriously, can I fit in more acrynoms in the title? LOL. I swim in acrynoms working in the I.T. industry but these scrapbooking acrynoms are way more fun :)
It's August already and we are getting ready for a family road trip, so I'll be MIA for a bit from the blog, or maybe not, we'll see if I get my act together to schedule posts. Meanwhile, here is a layout using the WIP's August kit. These Echo Park papers are so much fun. That company is onto something! The next few lines are as goodlooking as the current ones! I saw a Halloween line and two Christmas lines in their booth at CHA.
I am not very good with tags, quite afraid of them in fact, lol, but I tried this and it worked out pretty well. I stamped my favorite MFT stamp: Flower Girl onto an Echo Park journaling block. I also used some of the brand spanking new, just released SRM stickers Everyday Girl. It is so totally fun.
If you noticed, my new profile photo is totally rad right? LOL. It's a tale of unbelievable fun at CHA. What a delight it was to meet Laina Lamb. I walked the floor with her for a few hours and she was out there and people love her!!
She got me to attend a lunch with all the CK editors, you say WHAT? That's right baby, unreal no? Here's my moment of publication glory, a photo with Jennafer Martin, editor-in-chief!
At that lunch, there were these two ladies: Cindy Tobey and Amy Peterman. I had already spied on them from a short distance when I was at the Fancy Pants booth. I stared at them until they caught my eyes, then I would be too chicken and look away. But since we were eating lunch together, I felt free to gush a little bit :) Seriously, how long have I loved these ladies' works? Years... Long long long before Web 2.0 technologies existed, that's for sure. Amy told me that Fancy Pants booth had this camera thing that I should go check out.
Later I was at Webster's both, chatting up a storm with Dena Coe. Gosh she is so cute! Admiring Webster's embellishment, someone asked me if I was Jing-Jing. She started to explain who she was, holy buckets, I knew, the reigning Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Belinda Chang Langner. Unreal!
So Belinda and I hooked up to walk the floor for a while. Get this, Belinda and I can talk "real shop" since she works for IBM and heck I wondered if she noticed that I didn't ask her what a PoC was! LOL. We wandered into Fancy Pants booth. This time, I got my picture taken with Cindy and Amy. Then Belinda and I got all fancy and hence my new profile picture. LOL. What a beautiful story of my profile picture. How I absolutely loved CHA for all the people!!
