Warning: Mass Photo Posting - {CHA goodness}

For those of you not familiar, CHA stands for Craft & Hobby Association. Twice a year they have an exhibitor's show where all of the manufacturers show us the new goodies they've come up with. There are also a lot of other technical things like classes and business seminars meant to educate the crafting retailer. :) This year, Rhonda & Tammy invited myself, Gine, and Krista along for the ride to help with ordering for The Paper Niche and to take a few classes.

Guess who?
Yep! You're right! Tim Holtz was doing demos at the Ranger booth:
We all had to snag a pic together. The top photo is a tag he created and signed for the store. :)
