Hello friends!

I just returned from CHA on Friday morning. It was a long and lovely 8 days in California. The Prima booth was gorgeous and I had so much fun seeing all of my Prima friends-they are hilarious! Love them all! Sharon and I roomed together (of course)-I love spending tons of time with her. I also got to see some of my other amazing friends-Lucy E, Annabel, Susan, Julie (for about two seconds), Shemaine, Sharon and Mark, Elizabeth, and more..It was so nice to see everyone! I hope I am not forgeting anybody...
Prima was a hit as usual-the customers were amazed at the new product they came out with and they loved the amazing samples the DT put together. They rocked it!

I was exhausted and my family missed me-so we had a family weekend when i got back. It is good to be home....
I jumped right back into work mode-I made a video for Prima and hopefully I can share that in a few days once it's complete. I have a list of other projects I need to get done this week.

And I got an exciting e-mail from the sweet Jeni B.-she asked if I would guest design for Shimmerz this month!! YAY! I am so excited and honored to be asked--I can't wait to play with their amazing products-the Blingz, Vibez, Spritz and of course the Shimmerz. The have such an amazing assortment of colors to choose from! I'll share with you once it's up on their blog!

In the meantime-I'll share more of my creations I made for the Prima booth using their new flowers and papers. I did make a couple of mini canvas books but no photos yet. I made them the day before I left for California and didn't have the chance to take pics. And right now they are enroute to Canada for their big Expo. I'll share as soon as they return home...

For this layout-I used the new Strawberry Kisses papers, Cancan flowers, Jeweled Alphas, Madrigals, Belle Art roses and chipboard tags. Lots of layering, distressed paper edges and inked too. I just love my Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
Here are the two crowns I made for the booth. The first-I went wild with the flowers, bling, leaves and more. This was so fun to create. It truly is fit for a queen. A ton of customers had their photo taken with it on.

And then I made this one on the simple side (compared to the other). I used glass glitter, Canvas Fleur D Li by Donna Downey and covered that in glitter too, new Shabby Chic Prima paper, Belle Art Rose, Zazi and new white flowers sprayed with Glimmer Mist---Walnut Gold of course!
That's all for today! I will return soon with more goodies to share. Hope you all have a fabulous week!
xoxo Cari
