WOW... CHA ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!





So here it is, our booth!! (This pic it from Monday night the last night to set up before the show started, on Tuesday.) I was so tired last night I couldn't even do a post here. I'm as tired tonight, but still a little pumped from all the momentum of the day!! We had a steady stream of buyers in our booth literaly all say long!! YAY!! We took many orders today and talked with many people and gave out a ton of catalogs. The feedback was fabulous!! I meet some great people, and 'The Scrap Review" ladies came by and were so very nice and funny too, they took many pictures and even made a little video in my booth!! (Emilie, don't forget to edit that video!!LOL) Thanks Scrap Review!!!

This is the make-n-take that was going on all day at my booth. Two of my design team girls, Susan Dupre & Charity Hassel took turns all day demonstrating the make-n-take!! They rocked it!!! Dan and I heard ladies, and even a couple of men too, laughing and having a great time with them!! Thanks Charity and Susan, you both were great!!!
I GOT TO MEET DONNA DOWNEY!!! So I turn around and who is checking out my paper line, "My Sweet Cherry Pie", no other than Donna Downey!! I ran up to her and introduced myself and she said my papers were cute!! What a great compliment and honor!!! Thanks Donna!!
One of my orders today came from Sheri, the owner of The Scrap Nook in my hometown!!YAY!! We only have two scrapbook stores in Springfield so it's so nice to be in both!! Sheri was a sweetheart and loved my papers, and it was soooo nice to see a local person in such a sea of strangers!! Thanks, Sheri!!! Well that pretty much sums up my day... wild and crazy!! It's so great to get such awesome feedback and orders too of course!! Until next time... -Nikki

You are definitely doing CHA with style! Most new exhibitors do NOT have booths that look like yours! So classy! It's so much fun to see all the things that Stacey and Allison and I made displayed in your booth. I know you'll have a great show! Scrapbook Generation is honored to have been your first sale!
