Some CHA favorites

I was only at the show for a short while, but one of my favorite new products was easy to see. It just happens to come from my boss lady at Pink Paislee. They are sticker books. The first page is several journaling spots, the second page is a few border stickers, and the third page is a fun tiny sticker alpha. I thought they were such a fun pop of color for any layout. On my Free Spirit layout, I used a journaling spot and the sticker alphas for some of my journaling:

And for my Delight layout I used a border sticker as well as a couple of the alphas. I trimmed a thin piece of patterned paper and weaved it through.

I thought they were a great value and the alpha on the last page really seals the deal when considering a purchase.

Another company who's winter release I just LOVED was Cosmo Cricket. I thought all four new releases were just fabulous. Snorkel is going to be great for beach photos and even some of the Disney photos I just took. Girl Friday has my favorite color combo for girls, with pink, blue, and orange. It even has some green in there which is super cool. Li'l Man is NOT just for boys, as I already have tons of ideas for this line. Very versatile. Love the red with the cream and the orange and a great shade of blue. The last line really surprised me. Ever After is their new wedding line and I LOVE it. It has a grey/silver with orange and a lovely steel blue. Cosmo is always fairly whimsical but this line is just gorgeous and was my favorite themed line from the show. The beautiful thing about it is that it will work for other photos besides wedding photos. The patterns were floral or stripes, and the word strips were about love, and not just saying "I do" and wedding bells, etc. I just loved all of it. The ribbon was also delicious and I'm a fan of the stickers too.

I'll be back with more faves and plenty of Disney action, should you be planning a trip. My sister managed to capture some fun videos of myself and the girls on various rides and they just crack me up. I haven't edited my photos yet either, and I took several hundred. It was such a great trip!

Have a great day! Davinie

ETA: I just had to add a little Disney, lol. Morgan rode on this ride in California Adventure that was called Mulholland Madness or something like that. She went on it 4 times and just loved it, so the 5th time, my sister took her video camera to capture the action. Turns out that the 5th time was one time too many, lol. She's still a cutie though. And yes, of course, she's sitting with dad. :) When Alyca realized she was getting upset, she stopped filming. Poor girl. This was also our last day, so it might have just been the park starting to catch up with her.
