CHA... Boy was it EXCITING. This was my first year attending the Craft and Hobby Association Show in Anaheim, CA. I was able to attend the show for 2 days... I saw many new products that will be out for 2008 in the scrapbooking world. One trend was clear ribbons. Several companies created vinyl like ribbon with printing. The best description I heard "they are like fancy clear bra straps!" Another trend I noticed was expanding lines to include papers, rub-ons, embellishments, bling and much more. Many paper lines are now offered in several color schemes as well. Purple is finally hot... it seems to be creeping into more paper lines as well. Not a yucky grape purple but elegant muted tones. Along with drooling over the products, I was able to do many make and takes.

Check back often for more on CHA. After I finish reading my materials... I will be sharing more. And who knows... if you leave a comment... you might just win a share of my loot from the show. :-) Be sure to check out what I got from all the wonderful companies at CHA!
