CHA Chicago

I'm home from a wonderful weekend in Chicago at CHA!  It was so much fun to meet the Papertrey ladies, my fellow PTI addicts, and see all the goodies in person.  Everyone I met was so sweet.  Here's a few pics from the weekend.  Nadine brought everyone plumeria hair sticks as a gift from Hawaii.  Check out the shot of her and the PTI ladies below.  Click on the photos to enlarge.

Thanks for posting your photos, Sara! I am so glad we got a chance to meet up. I really enjoyed getting to know you better. You're a great friend. Hopefully your trip home was quicker than your trip in to Chicago! lol Should we keep our fingers crossed that CHA will be in Chicago again next year? :)

Nice photos! I am so glad I met you in person, you were very easy to talk to. Maria kept saying it's like you guys are old friends (she didn't believe in my imaginary PFF's). I told her that's how it is on the forum. Now she believes, lol! Please let us know the next time you are on the island. Wouldn't it be a blast to have a girls night out here?!?!
