This is Part 2 of my Recap of the Craft & Hobby Association's 2016 Show. You can find Part 1 here. I took so many pictures, I had to spread them out in two posts.  Here are some action shots from the show floor with Andy Skinner, Dina Wakley, Donna Salazar and myself.

Gorgeous shots from some of Tim Holtz's displays at the show. Love that Ideaology booth!

Seeing old friends and making new ones = a MAJOR highlight of the show.

These are some of the people who stopped by to do a Make & Take with me in Eileen Hull's booth. We used the Sizzix Recipe Card Box die and Tim' Distress Inks to create the project.

A couple of hands-on shots are always necessary!

And a shot of some of the folks working in action. See Eileen's trailer “Scotty” behind us? She was able to park it on the show floor and let people come in for a look.

    How very fun and again I wish I could have figured out a way to get inside CHA to meet up with some of my friends! It had to be totally awesome to see Andy Skinner at work! I took a couple of his online classes and he is amazing, now I just have to finish them! Glad you had a great time!
