Thank you Nichole, and everyone at PTI

The gang at the PTI forum decided to do a special surprise blog hop to say thanks to Nichole, Jane, Jule, Jennifer and all the fantastic DT at Papertrey ink for EVERYTHING you do for us, and we all made a thank you card.

Here's mine. It was a beautiful Giga Guidelines tutorial from either Debbie Olsen or Betsey Vekdman, and I loved the way she layered guidelines with other sets (in this case peaceful pointsetta)
I stamped the images on sweet blush with Fresh Snow, Sweet Blush and berry sorbet. Punched a strip of Berry Sorbet, even pulled out the sewing machine and sewed on a piece of sweet blush grosgrain.

Used some liquid pearls in the centre.

Thanks again Nichole. We are excited to continue on this fantastic journey that PTI has become !!!

Other CHA goodies

I wanted to play with my other fun goodies that I got at CHA - these new clay chalks from Pebbles.
I have the original shimmer chalks, and was a bit skeptical at how these were different but after seeing them being demonstrated I was sold !
I used copics, shimmer and clay chalks on the flower, and some paper from DCVW.
Popped up the flower and added some lavender moon grosgrain.

I got a close up of the shimmer and I'm super glad again that I bought these ! They blend BEAUTIFULLY, can be coloured over with copics...just super versatile.

Hey guys, posting some pictures of the yummy goodies and great peeps from the Chicago CHA Supershow !

First up here is the outside of the PTI booth - and it was packed Friday morning !!

A little later on in the day there was a bit more room to move around (hi Jennifer !! She did such a great job! We had a little checkout snafu and Jennifer and Jane fixed it no questions asked....that why I love PTI !!)

Some great picture of the display and projects we see on the blog- so great to see them up close !

This display case was set up to show the DT's fantastic creations with the CHA set....sigh I'm so in love with it. I love there's a rose in it too...LOL !!

Our preliminary haul ! We thought the rolley cart was SUCH a great idea...till we realized how heavy a rolley cart of PTI paper would be !! So we made a quick pit stop back at the hotel to drop off goodies and came back !

The make and take table with Mish and Dawn. They were SSSSOOOO super sweet in person !!

Me doing the pin make and take......

Suzanne doing hers.....isn't she super photogenic ?

And some great pictures of famous faces and friends! Here is Dawn WHAT a sweetie. You can't see it but she was wearing the CUTEST wedge sandals that matched her apron !! LOL stood in them all day too !!

A pic with me and Nichole. What a super nice person...and so approachable !! Me and Suzanne joked that if we owned a successful stamping company there is no way we would be that nice. We'd have an autograph booth somewhere and sit down all day while someone brought us fruit and wine .... But Nichole was so outgoing and approachable, she stayed at the entrance to that booth all day !!

A picture with Nadine (Wahine) she was super sweet !! Meet lots more PTI pals (HI Miss T!!) but Nadine was the only one who reminded me to take a pic !! What a sweetheart she was (and her friend too!)

And just for fun here is a pic of our goodies. Now this is me and Suzanne, as well as a friend from Canada that we shopped for. It was so much fun to see the PTI in one place.....and of course I couldn't resist................................................

AAHHHH bliss !!
