CHA and Diane Shultz

 A few days ago I returned from 5 wonderful and exhausting days at Creativation (CHA to us old timers). Took some classes to learn some new techniques and increase my mixed media talent (which I haven't quite gotten yet) but I'm working on it. Saw a demo on the Gelli Press and had to order one as soon as I got home. I should have it by Monday along with a Fabric solution to test.

I naturally visited the Graphic 45 booth, you know how I love their papers. Midnight Masquerade is, of course, my favorite. Could be because of my love of purple. Portrait of a Lady and Vintage Hollywood are just as stunning. Can't wait to get my hands on them. Scrapbook Cafe ( my local and favorite scrapbooking store) should receive their shipment as soon as Graphic 45 release them.

One of my highlights of the show was while I was taking a well deserved break in the convention center lobby. I saw Diane Shultz (owner of Graphic 45) walking towards me and sat next to me. I looked at her and said "I just love Graphic 45". That was all it took to start up a conversation with this talented woman. What a warm and gracious lady she truly is. We spent about 15 minutes chatting about the paper line, this and that and I discovered she loves purple as much as i do. That chance meeting will forever be in my memories.

As soon as I experiment with the Gelli Press and the fabric solution, I'll let you know what I think about it.

Bye for now and keep on scrapping.
