CHA/LA/USA update

This is the first chance I've had to post some eye candy from CHA as my laptop wouldn't connect to the internet. All sorted now so I'll just post a few photos of the hundreds I've snapped. We are really enjoying it despite the tiring schedule of classes starting at 7am, then the show, then classes in the evening. Lots of make and takes around the show too. Somewhere along the line we grab something to eat and get the courtesy transfer to and from the convention centre.
First some of the individual artists work exhibited at Ranger's stand...



 Guess who we had a chat to?... charming as ever and so giving of his talents and greatly adulated by so many. Great demo of the new Distress Stains and we are impressed at what they'll do.
 The staging of the stands is amazing and this is Ranger's decor.
 In the textile section I loved the  wacky feathered decor of this booth.
 Even the floor is covered with feathers.
 Almost forgot to show the opening razamataz....
 The pipe band played as the doors opened.
Lots more to follow when I have time....

Hi Jo!
THank you for sharing all these lovely photos - and you had a picture taken with Lord Tim??? How lucky is that - I would love to go to one of his demos! I hope you are enjoying all this and learning a lot so you can spread the knowledge to us who are not so lucky to be at the CHA!
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!
Hugs,
