I had a blast in Chicago for CHA. I am forever thankful that my husband agreed to let me go without question. It was refreshing. Of course, the major reason I went to the show and the highlight was getting to the Papertrey Ink booth.
Nicole and crew were fantastic!! She was right at the front of the booth greeting customers with a smile and warm welcome. Heather and Debbie were running one make-n-take while Dawn and Michelle did the other. PTI, by far, had the best make-n-takes of anyone else at the show. Hey free PTI, it doesn't get better than that. :) The girls had to be tired from travels and long days, but you would never know from their sweet spirits and happy hearts. They were gracious to take photos with and for fans. During the Meet & Greet, Nicole, Heather, Debbie, Dawn, and Michelle took the time to ask questions and really connect. It was sincere and heartfelt. Jane was fantastic and gracious as she took the time to speak with us and answer all our silly questions. I spent a lot of money and time to get to CHA, and they didn't disappoint. Thanks, PTI.
First, here are the design team's cards that they made with the "Four of a Kind" free CHA set.
These were just as gorgeous as ever. If you think their cards and projects are cute in pictures on their blogs, they are even BETTER in person, flawless.
This is the make-n-takes from Friday:

I was so appreciative that they let us impress and die cut on our own. It was good for first time PTI'ers and those who were hesitant to try them. Let me just say that the envelope die cut was not even on my radar, but after using it I immediately went in the booth and purchased it. :) Great marketing move on PTI's part. ;)
Thanks for reading my longer than usual post. I had a great, refreshing, relaxing time in Chicago at a much needed time.
Edited: I said Cheryl but meant Debbie. Ummm . . . can we say long week. I don't even know a Cheryl in the pepercraft world. :)
