Creating Keepsakes Guest Blogger, Day 2 of Set Up and Teaching...

Be sure and stop by Creating Keepsakes Blog today, I'm the guest blogger! Which I couldn't be more thrilled about! Love CK! And I might have a giveaway over there too!
(Don't forget to send your local or favorite scrapbook store to my booth at CHA!) 

I forget how long it takes for me to set up my booth! And now that I have an extra 10x10 spaces its got me all freaked out!! I'm lovin the space, but having a hard time committing to anything! I'll have to sooner or later since tomorrow is my last day! Here are a couple of pictures from day 1...
basically its a mess on day one!
I have no "Day 2" pictures b/c I was just to busy to stop! But I'll have some great pictures from today (day 3) that I'll post on Facebook and hopefully will on my blog too. It will just depend on my timing... which has never been great!

I taught a class tonight at Pages of the Heart in Monrovia, CA! We had a blast in Kathy's brand new store! They just moved into the new store on Tuesday and had me teaching tonight! So they were still trying to unpack and get set up, but let me tell you this store is awesome!! Seriously... look at the pictures below, its such a pretty store! Who wouldn't want to scrapbook here?! 

My class...
These ladies have been following my blog for quite sometime now and it was great to meet them in real life! (They even brought my a cupcake!)
When Dan came to pick me up at the store I made him pose for a picture too.
We never seem to get our picture taken together and with 
this awesome brick wall I had to get one of us!
This is Kathy the owner of Pages of the Heart!
The building structure was beautiful!
I'd love to have offices that look like this one day! 

Here I am with Karen who brought me the cupcake and it was in this cute cupcake holder!
We all had a great night! Thanks Pages of the Heart for having me! 

I have to share another sneak peek of 
"We Are Family"
paper line that I'm releasing at CHA!
DT gal Delaina made this for my booth...
how cute is this!! I love it!  
Its 12:30am here in CA and its 2:30am in my home town so I must get to 
bed so I can have my head clear for decorating! 
Have a great day and don't forget to stop my CK's Blog!! -Nikki

You are an animal! How on earth can you have enough energy to teach a class after a 2 day CHA setup? I'm beyond impressed. Moreover, you know the onslaught you have in store over the next 4 days. Wow. My hat's off to you! Have a great show.

You and Dan look really cute on that photo, I´d love to see it scrapped. Perhaps a challange for us?
