Home Sweet Home!!!

It took us over 12 hours to get home, but we got home and that's all that matters! This is our Lanie eating a quick dinner on our last leg of our trip home! 
 We came home to tons and tons of snow! And extremely cold temps, record breaking cold!
Here is our Alfred running fast to get out of the snow! He's not a fan of snow!
 Neither is Bella! She was more willing to cuddle...
and poor Savannah doesn't have an undercoat so she is always cold! 
Nico is a whole different story.... he LOVES the snow! 
(He looks so small in this picture, not the big boy he really is!)

So we are home and happy! We had a wonderful show with tons of orders! You shouldn't have any trouble finding my papers now! ;)
We are now crazy busy filling orders!
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the last week in LA at CHA...
Dan and I
 My booth pictures...
















 Dan, Stacy and I
The Ella Publishing girls....
 The class that Suzy West taught and that I sponsored.
Sarah and Trish (helped with the class)
Susan and I (helped with the class, Julie did too)
 This is the little mini album that they made in class...
"Its Your Day" mini album...
 "It's Your Day" projects...

Suzy and I...

 Monday night we went out with the Bella Blvd team, Jillibean Soup team, Lilybee team and my team!
We had so much fun....
 Dan was the only guy... but I think he was okay with it!


Sisters...






 Scrapbook Business had Bella and I on there Jan. 2011 issue and they also had us
as their backdrop on their booth at CHA! So I had to get a picture with it!

Its been a wonderful week! I had such a great time with friends, meeting new people and showing my product to all the retailers! 

Here are a few fun things:
Check out Becky Flecks Feb 11 Page Maps that some of my DT girls and I participated in this month! We all had a great time with these sketches, Becky is so talented, it was a pleasure for me to get to play a bit before I left for CHA. Thanks Becky!  

I'm also the guest designer for "If It's Groovy" this month, so go check out all the fun on this groovy blog! They will be featuring my Valentine paper line Sugar Cookie!

Have a great weekend! -Nikki

I'm very excited to have found your site and thanks for sharing all of your wonderful pictures. Where can I find your paper? I live here in Texas and I usually shop at Hobby Lobby and Michaels. We also have Archivers...Can I find your paper at any of these stores? I have not seen it. Please let me know where I can purchase it. Thanks a bunch.
