Home Sweet Home

Yes, here we are home sweet home again, and I'm still on cloud nine!  Allen and I had such a wonderful time in Chicago, and at CHA!  I can never thank Kathy and Dave and their family enough for making us a part of it, and we will cherish the memories and friendships forever!!   Here's a quick slide show with a few of our favorite pictures, but there are some 300 more to go through.  I've got to try and get my craft room back to some sort of order so that I can start making cards again, so while I'm busy with that, you can enjoy the pictures!  Have a blessed day!

Oh, and before I forget the randomly drawn winners of my blog hop prizes from last week are Carol commenter #13 who won the Pig Peeker dies donated by Joanne at The Scrapping Cottage, and Nikki, who was commenter #66 from the PKS Blog Hop won the $15 gift certificate donated by Peachy Keen Stamps.  Both winners were contacted by me via email while I was in Chicago last week, and were then contacted by TSC and PKS for information about how to claim their prizes.  Congratulations to both of you ladies, and thank you to everyone who played along. 

Love ya,
Lorie

What a great slideshow, Lorie! Those big scissors cracked me up - I think I need a pair for when I have like 3 swaps due, loL! And ... ahem ..... no pictures of you out on the glass box at the Sears Tower? tee hee!

It looks like you had a wonderful time and are a terrific friend and designer for PKS - they couldn't have a better friend on their team :) Glad to have you home and see what creations you make with all your new goodies! x0x0

Hi Lorie
I was one of the gals who waited forever (but it was worth the wait)to do the make and take with you on Friday afternoon...and although I loved doing the make and take with you I hated how the cheeks on my peach turned out...but thanks for your kindness and tips with the copics. I have decided to take a copics 101 class in a few weeks. Thanks for the inspiration!
Hugs
Nikki (PKS blog hop winner)

I live in the burbs. I was at CHA & I went straight to the PKS booth. It was fun to meet you and Kathy. I wasn't able to sign up for the make n take, but I just watched you video and you are a fantastic teacher. I can't wait to try the copic markers. I will be ordering some of the new die cut/stamps this weekend. Keep up the good work.JEH in BG
