CHA and the Winner...

We or rather I worked all day on the booth while Dan played on his iPhone!! I should confess though that I don't want ANY help at all... I just want to put my earphones in, listen to some good music and play!! This is my favorite part the decorating and show the beautiful layout and cards that my design team girls have created!! I'd say I have another 5 hours of work and I'll be done tomorrow, maybe less (but I know I'll start moving things around as soon as I think I'm done)!! Pre-show set up:
I guess you all would like a winner of the 3 new collections... well... first you have to view my 4th collection: "Something For Everyone" my first "all" pattern collection, named after some of my design team ladies, the ladies that work for me and my momma!

Girl with that wonderful, handsome husband of yours, loving and patient enough to spend the day watching you rearrange pattern paper . . . you had better throw that snuggie on the floor now!!!!! LOL! :)

Have to say I LOVE the distressed look of this line, and Ria and Julie are my favs because I am in love with all types of dots!

Love you other lines too! Bucky Beaver was my high school mascot! (Don't laugh, we were fierce despite our cuteness. Hee! :))

Good luck this week, hope it is all you are dreaming of!

God Bless!

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Hi Nikki Sweetie...
Oh my gosh. I am so over the top thrilled. I can't believe it. I won...This is the best lottery ever. I love it. This means I will be having Julie come over and spend an evening crafting. Oh girl thank you.

I love the Julie polka dots ofcourse. What girl does not love polka dots. To cute. I love the color variance.

Now I love that Snugglie on you but here in Phoenix sweetie, even the birds aren't flying. It is to HOT. I saw one walking across the street bobbing his head and dragging his tail. I promise, the honest to God truth.

Thank you again sweet friend. I am thrilled. A gift from a real movie star. Love Ya.

Country hugs, Sherry

LOVE this new line, Nikki. I am still shocked & amazed that you've named one of your papers after me. I could've never imagined something that cool.

I would have to say "For Trish" is my favourite - I love the shape, and the mix of patterns! You don't need much else on top of that, and it is so very versatile. But not to leave any of them out - they are all so pretty!

Cynthia B. said...

This line is my favorite of yours, hands down! My fave paper? I'll go with For Mimi - love houndstooth, and blue is one of my go-to scrap colors!
Good luck with the rest of the setup- I'm sure it'll be gorgeous when you're done!
