There is so Much To Post, WHERE TO BEGIN! CHA California!

Helloooooooooooooo......dream day!!!

We learned SO MUCH and met our heros!

Personal one on one talks with Tim Holtz................ Wait until you see his new stamps AND his new alcohol ink "marker". He used alcohol ink to color gems and his metal embellishments.

Check out this awesome grungeboard book!

We met Daven Nolta! OH YEAH! Autograph there too! Talked Shop! Great dude! What a brain! (Heidi with Daven)

We met Heidi Swapp and actually TALKED TO HER! For quite some time, she showed us her new embossed paper, ....hard to explain, white on white emboss resist (look for photos later, it is our favorite new product from the show so far!)..... She told us about living in Beijing, her family, her inspirations......

(Heidi with Heidi Swapp showing her new white doesn't do it justice!)

Amber with Heidi Swapp!

Photos and technique make and take with Claudine Hellmuth! Here Hallie is with Claudine!

Melissa Frances! Look at these bras in the background! We met Melissa herself. Did you know that she is a breast cancer survivor?

Lisa Spangler! HECK YEAH! Designer with Hero Arts. We talked shop...hello! LOVE HER! We had to know who designed the new FOUR DOLLS clear stamp set 2009 by Hero Arts, and of course .... it was HER! She said her inspiration was a trip she took to Tokyo recently.

Suze Weinberg was a melt art demonstration and gave Amber a necklace!

Go green! Prima taught a great class and we reused a lot of their packaging to make gifts, notebooks ....we'll post a pic once we get a good pic in lighting!

PARIS HILTON was here today! We saw her in the flesh. She is super ooooober skinny, smiled like for a million hours straigh, had great hair and flawless face! Amber liked her bright pink shoes!

Check back soon! LOTS more new stuff to come!
