Cricut: The Official Blog
Wednesday, February 2, 2011
Hey there, friends! First of all, a little note about My Pink Stamper's live UStream broadcast. So sorry that it got canceled, and we weren't able to let you know since we did not have internet access at the time. (Robyn had to catch an earlier flight to get home safely. )  Hopefully we'll get to try it again at the next CHA. I know it would have been an absolute blast!!

We just got home this evening after driving all day, so I'm a little wiped out and foggy-brained. So for tonight, I will just share a few pictures with you, and then I'll be posting more tomorrow as well.

Here's me with Tim Holtz. Love him! Not only is he a design genius, but he is just a sweet, kind, gracious and very down to earth person.  (He even remembered me from when I met him in November and our email exchange.)

We spent a lot of time in the Provo Craft booth, of course. I saw Jim Thornton, the CEO of Provo Craft, so Wendy and I took a pic with him.

The Expression 2. This was so exciting to see, as we had not heard any leaks at all before going to CHA. What a cool machine!!! It's kinda like an Expression and Gypsy combined. I guess PC is going to be sending me one since I got invited to the Gala, so I can't wait to play with it and get it all figured out. Sweet!

My friend Brenda was SO excited to meet Robyn (My Pink Stamper), so I introduced her and we took this pic right before Robyn got prepared to teach a class on the PC stage.

Here's my whole crew with the bug. From left to right, there's Angela, Brenda, Wendy, me, Cricut, NanaSusan, Becca and Ronda.

Jinger Adams with the Cricut giving away more prizes. We didn't win any, but who cares? We were excited for those who did. And wow, PC was really generous - both with their prizes AND with the make-n-takes and classes they held.

And look who we found! Here's me with Diane - aka "Capadia". She's a sweetheart!

Be sure to check back tomorrow for more of the scoop on CHA.  I'll also be announcing the winner of last week's blog candy now that I am back online.  Woohoo!  Plus, don't forget to become a follower and leave a comment here for this week's blog candy, which I will announce tomorrow.

So glad you're home safe and sound and had such a great time! I have been thinking about you...wondering how Mickey and the gang are and, of course, if you met up with your "boyfriend". I was watching some of his videos yesterday. I was talking to my mom and wondering "Hey, I wonder if Monique would ever consider doing a class to teach us some of his (or other) "grungy" techniques? So??? How about it, sister? (NOT AT ALL that there is ANYTHING lacking in your classes and techniques, as is, OF COURSE!!!!!!) Hugs to you!!!

JenJackScrap said...

By the way......I neglected to mention how beautiful you look!!!!! :-)
