Since we leave tonight at about midnight, drive to Detroit and fly out to Anaheim at 6am...there are now no more sleeps until CHA! Yahoo!
CHA is the Craft and Hobby Association trade show. It happens twice a year. Craft companies, including those that manufacture scrapbooking supplies, show off their new lines and businesses place their orders. I can't wait!
This year I am actually ahead of schedule. I have business cards made. I have my four layouts and a card ready for Core'dinations as well. Here's one of the layouts. I had the technique in my head for days and finally had a chance to make it yesterday.
To create the look of the stars:
Use your craft knife to slice an "*" in the front of the Black Magic. Next, using a pencil or eyelet setter, push the cardstock forward from behind.
Using your fingernails, press down the star sections in the front. Finally, attach a coordinating sheet of Core'dinations cardstock behind the star holes you have created.
Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock (Black Magic, All in the Family), Cuttlebug embossing folder, Cricut diecuts (Stamped, George), foam layering tape, Zig black marker

Hats off to Ema! She marched right in and plunked herself down in the chair. She opened her mouth as wide as it could possibly go and let them not only count her teeth but clean them too. This earned her a fantastic new princess toothbrush and a tube of toothpaste.
Thank goodness we crammed in a last minute polish before we left home.
Today is one of those run-around-like-a-crazy-woman-and-work-two-jobs kinda day.
I also want to post this layout today in my gallery on 2Peas.
Gotta run...my spot in line for the shower just opened up!
Supplies: Core'dinations cardstock (Vintage, All in the Family, Black Magic), EK Success letter stamps and scallop circle punch, Storage Unit, Inks & More ink, ProvoCraft Cuttlebug embossing folder and Cricut cut letters, sandpaper, foam layering tape.

-Ema's third attempt at visiting the dentist. To put it mildly, she doesn't trust the guy. She won't open her mouth for him, let alone let him poke around with his pointy tools. It should prove to be an interesting afternoon.
