CHA~Prima~What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas~not this

Well, I’ve always wanted to go to Vegas and thanks to Liza at Scrapbook Memories, I got to go to CHA, too!  I went with my daughter, Gabby and we had a blast.  It was so much fun to see Vegas with her and go to the last CHA summer (rumor has it).
This will be long so, so I will break it up in several posts.  First, the classes I got to attend.
First class was Tim’s Distress Holiday cards and my favorite of the 4 classes I got to attend.
I hope you all notice the G45 Ladies Dairy fabric I made for my head band and vest…teehee
The left card the tag pulls out and these were so much fun to make.  Mario’s son and his wife made this card for us:

I have to share with you guys, that was totally, inspired by my friend Toni Ann and her blog: carbonescorner.  She makes the most amazing steampunk charms and when I saw her mickey steampunk I just had to make one.  So, here is the one I gave Tim:
I had an old Mickey watch and took it apart to create this card.  I added real watch parts, 7 gypsies wings and added part of the wrist band.  And yes, Toni Ann I told Tim it was inspired by you.  Next was class with Dyan and her new stamping pad:
We create a mini book using all the techniques she showed in class.  Her new stamp pad can be used over and over again to change your colors, just simply wash it out and you have a new pad to start another color palette. 
Tomorrow, I will take you thru Laura Denison’s Class using G45 Steampunk Spells and D0nna Downey’s class using Faber-Castell mixed media Gelatos.  Until tomorrow~♥Hugz, Zandra♥
Ohh, you wanted to see products from CHA???????
Yes, of course you do…LOL  I will post Prima first as it is my favorite and June will kill me if I don’t…teeheetee
new masks
Flowers:  Loving the new chalk board flowers!  Chalkboard is everywhere at CHA, almost every company has a chalkboard line.  My favorite were Prima and Theresa Collins:
Chalkboard flowers!  Gotta have it…lol
I’m sure I didn’t photo everything, but it is a taste of what is to come and I was lucky enough to meet Frank:
Tomorrow, I will bring you :
