I tried to minimize the amount of free stuff that I picked up because I traveled lightly. Here is a picture of the stuff that made it home with me. I also got some Staedtler pens and a few other books. My favorite thing I got was the Pink Paislee stamps since I was at there booth for so long. I practically felt like their mascot. I keep getting these hints from Julie over at EBB that they'll be in March's kit.
Of course I stopped by the Hambly booth to visit Allison and see their beautiful new product. She hooked Heather & I up with some limited editions. I know I can't believe I haven't done something with them yet. I've been incredibly busy with job hunting and finishing up some mini books. I can't wait to play with this yummy new product!
Epson & Advantus has a special make and take set up. I took a picture with Heidi Swapp and then brought my memory card over to Epson. We printed out a digital 12x12 page and then brought it back to Advantus for embellishments. I had fun with this and would have liked to spend more time with the program and change some stuff around. Although I much prefer that hands on traditional scrapbooking, I can see a place for digital scrapbooking.
The best make-n-take at Winter CHA 2008 was the mini book at Pink Paislee's booth. Surely you can see why I was third to get one of the kits!
I have another mini book that I made during my Prima class with Michelle Van Etten. I'm still putting a few more embellishments on it. I hope to have it up with my next post.
Also, I start a contractual job as a photo retoucher tomorrow afternoon. Its for a publishing company that makes calendars. My job is supposed to last through the end of March. If they are still behind I could get signed on for longer. I'm so excited to have this opportunity. Thanks Valerie!
