USA. CHA and Grapic 45 - Here I Come

Starting to get excited, it is now only 5 sleeps until Josh and I fly off again to the states. I am attending CHA again as well as doing so sight seeing. This time I will be traveling with my son. This year Graphic 45 asked the design team if any of us wanted to demonstrated at CHA. I put my hand up straight away. What an honor - Tim Hotz, Heidi Swap, Terese Collins and other Scrapbooking Super Stars demo at CHA, not the Jane Tregenza's from Adelaide! But this year I have a 2 hour gig demoing Pop up elements on Cards and Pages. I hope its ok to share a sneak peek here! 
I have also had to get a heap of projects ready to take with me and I have just loved the two new collections I received. Little Darlings is the prettiest baby collection I have ever seen and Olde curiiosity Shopp is already my all time favorite. Due to time constraints Diane from Graphic 45 could only send the design team one of each print paper and as they are double sided the delemar has been, which side to use and how to get as many projects out of the papers as possible. I photocopied mine onto white A3 paper and made mock layouts so I could plan it down to the last scrap. We were asked to do a layout in each of the collections. But as I am also teaching in Brisbane at the expo (June longweek end), and want to use the olde cruiostiy shoppe for my classes. The projects have to be ready by the 10th Feb but I will still be in the States. This means the projects have to be done this week and photographed before I leave. This has meant my papers from Diane have had to be stretched to cover 2 layouts for CHA, 2 layouts for the expo, 1 altered art project for CHA, 1 patchwork pieces project for the expo 1 popup card for CHA and a tag for CHA. Needless to say, I have nothing left!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
I have also done some projects using little darlings and the tropical travelogue. I hope to share some of these projects once I am back from the states.
So back to work, I have every project started but none finished. Everything just needs those finishing touches and some Imaginarium Designs Chipboard.
Wish me luck!
