Anyone who knows me knows I spend way too much time reading blogs...usually scrapbooking related! A few weeks ago, I went to CHA Summer with my mom (a trade show in Chicago), and was so excited to meet IN PERSON some of the people behind the blogs I stalk!!

This is Jody Ferlaak - she and her family have an amazing story...I recommend to everyone to take the time to read about her! She is fairly new to the scrapbooking world, but was a SOY finalist! She has a real spunky style that totally matches her personality!

This is Becky Higgins - I tried about 4 times to win her new idea book(a Sketches book), but had no luck (I think maybe someone very close to me won, and I entered her name!!).

I was thrilled to meet these two great gals! I first talked to them at the Creative Imaginations party, and then was honored when I won their new organization book (me? need organization??). This is Aby Garvey and Wendy Smedley - so friendly and sweet, and just down to earth gals!! Be sure to buy their new book - it is AWESOME!! Hopefully, it will help me out!

This is Christy Tomlinson...she was once with Chatterbox and now is a part of the Making Memories design team as well as Better Homes and Gardens scrapbooking magazine. I have bought some awesome class kits from her! She is a mom with lots of kids!!! Awesome personality and just sweet as can be!
I was also fortunate to meet CD Murkowsky (Creating Keepsakes SOY - scrapbooker of the year), Kelli Crowe, Rebecca Cooper and Jennifer Ditz-McGuire. All so nice and each took the time to talk to us! What a blast! It's amazing all the talented women out - and just so sweet!

Have a good one!

Oh make me smile. :)

I should have known this would turn into a scrapbooking blog, too.
