Day Two - Building the Booth and lookie who we ran into....

Today we got into the convention center and started building the Stampavie booth - When get there and find you booth.. it isn't much -
This year our booth is 10 x 30 - so we have a third more space than last year. This will be so much easier to get into and move around in the booth when the show is going. And Diane will have more room to have more people at our make-n-take table.  In this photo you can see that Stuart is just starting to open up our crates so we can pull all the things out and make this booth gorgeous!
Diane and Heidi were organizing and stacking up all the pieces to the shelves, tables and chairs here - LOTS of pieces - but oh so pretty once put together!

We took a break for some lunch and we headed off to the lunch truck to see if we could find something to eat. While waiting for our food - Diane spotted someone she recognized... Do you know who this man is with Heidi and Me (HORRIBLE photo of me, but when you snap your photo with this guy you have go with what you get - 
Yep...we found Tim Holtz in his booth! During the show there is no getting near him - very popular crafter here you know - He was very friendly, and was very nice to pose for photos of us - Can you even image how many time he has his photo taken each year? 

Show isn't even open yet and we already had excitement with a real paper crafter celebrity.. LOL Now if only I can find Melody Ross and Donna Downey :0)  But first the job of showing off all the GORGEOUS images that CHA is releasing this year... can't wait to share the link with you so you can see them all... they will go live on the web site (www.stampavie.com) Saturday morning.

ok... I my head is nodding here at my keyboard - VERY VERY sleepy!

Looks as if you're having a great time. Good luck with the preparing of the booth and of course the show. Wish I could come over to visit, but LA is a long way out of here..... Hugs Helen

Can't wait to see the booth in all its glory when you've finished building. I can only imagine how exhausting the whole CHA experience is, but hopefully you will have fun too.
Great photo of you with TH. I'm going to one of his classes in the UK next month & I'm beyond excited.
