CHA Summer Show 2012

The summer show ended today and now I'm back in my hotel room re-sizing all 200+ photos I took so you can see what I saw.  Here's the first batch starting with a photo from set-up day. 










  












And here is Julie Fei-Fan Balzer teaching a Make'n Take in the Crafters Workshop booth.


Check out this fun photo below - I've been trying to think of a cute caption.... other than "eeeek"..... What do you think?  Leave me a comment and the person who comes up with the best will receive a selection of Crafters Workshop templates!
 

More photos to come, so y'all come back now...............

Yours truly,
Julie :)
