I'm back!

I had a great time but I am so glad to be home. I missed Drew more than I could ever imagine! When he saw me I could tell that he missed me too! He ran over and gave me three big hugs and a few kisses. After that he was by my side the rest of the day and every once in awhile he would sneak in a hug or lay his head on me. It feels good to be missed!

CHA was awesome. It was cool seeing all the new stuff. The only thing that sucked was that I couldn't take it home with me!

My favorites were:
--KI Memories, the lace cardstock was so cool. I can't wait to get my hands on it!
--Flair, I loved their calendar paper and stickers. I really want to use it for a class!
--Dream Street, love all their new papers!
--October Afternoon, I instantly fell in love with everything they had!
--Fancy Pants, the new felt shapes are awesome!
--Doodlebug, I love the new sugar coated chipboard alphabets!

Meeting the Hall of Fame girls was fun. It was nice to put a personality with the face. We had a really nice lunch and had a great time getting to know one another! I wish I could have hung out with them more!

I'll try to post some pictures later but I thought I would pop in first and say hello!!

glad you had a good time. i bet drew will be glued to you for a while!

Kodi Logan said...

maybe this is a weird question, but why didn't they use your actual page on the cover? why recreate it. come on now...i know drew is cover worthy!!!!!!!!

Allison Davis said...

That is the page I made.:)
They pick three people to make up a page and send us all the same picture. We get to use whatever scrap supplies we want and send them our version. Then the editors pick the one they like best. :)

Kodi Logan said...

ok, i gotcha now! makes much more sense!

Holly said...

Glad you guys made it back safe and sound! I'm eager to see these new supplies you mentioned and especially what you decide to do with them! lol

Jennifer said...

EEE!!!! Your first page in print...AND ON THE COVER!!!! I'm so happy for you. It looks awesome!

Linda said...

What a cute photo!!
So sad I missed meeting you guys!
I hope you are going to winter CHA so I can catch up with you then!!

Come on I want to hear more about your trip. Did you get to venture into Chicago? I'm glad that you had fun and met people. But so awesome that you are finally back home with your baby and hubby. :) Oh, thanks for the add too!

Rookie Mama said...

AWESOME!!!! I love this picture of you!

I can not wait to see the actual magazine!!!!! I have been on the lookout for it...

Hope you had a great birthday. I think that I was 26 when I declared that birthdays should last 2 full weeks- the week before and the week after the actual big day... and it has been our tradition ever since. :)

When I hit 30 I said it should last a whole month. I got 'the look' and decided to shut up while I was still ahead. hehe
