CHA 12 Anaheim

CHA was a whirlwind trip for me this year. With only 24 ours to spend in southern California, I left home early Saturday morning and arrived in Anaheim mid-afternoon to find our iLoveToCreate show booth almost completely ready for opening day on Sunday. Lots of hard work and creativity went into this year's booth, and it showed. Sunday morning we started the day with an early breakfast and a key-note presentation on the new creative consumer by a panel of industry experts, including iLTC's own Valerie Marderosian. I walked the show at a fast clip, attended a seminar, and was back on the road home. Here's some pics from CHA:
Hope Perkins did live body art on our model in the booth. It was a work in progress throughout the day. It kept people coming back to see the final look.

And our Swell Designer, Alexa Westerfield, at her post in our Blogger's Lounge.
On Saturday, Allee and I had to go find a place to have a giant red balloon inflated as part of our 'show-stopper' piece.
Yummies could be found all around our booth for anyone to enjoy. My favorites were the pink heart-shaped Peeps.

Almost done! The body art didn't stop until the end of the day. Unfortunately, my day ended before the body art did. Each day features a new body art work in progress.
