CHA Stamp Star Sightings!!

I had such a blast at the CHA Super Show on Friday and Saturday! I am posting some pictures of stamp stars that I spotted on Friday and tomorrow I will post pictures from Saturday.
Upon entering the great Hall A at the Anaheim convention center I came upon the SCS Booth. That was THE place for stamp star sightings! Who did I spot first? None other than Jenn and Beate!

And yes, here is a picture of HSKELLY - me - Harriet Skelly - not H.S. Kelly as some people thought, with Jenn...

and Beate, both very gracious hostesses!

Who else did I sight at the SCS booth and surrounding area?
Kendra, Lori and Deb! I met Deb a few years ago (virtually) on the challenge chaser thread where we would chat with everyone while waiting for the challenge to be posted. I was so excited to finally meet her in real life. I "know" Kendra and Lori from reading their blogs! Lori did an excellent job of making me (and everyone) feel welcome at the SCS booth!

And I was also excited to meet Cindy, whose blog I also follow!

These two wonderful ladies, Bev and Joan, let me hang out with them quite a bit on Friday and Saturday. They were so fun to hang with! Thanks so much you two!

Across the way from the SCS booth was the Lizzie Anne booth.

Another great stamp star sighting spot was right by the Taylored Expressions booth. There I spotted.....

Jami and

Jackie and Karen..

and Oh Look! It is Taylor and me! I also got to meet Jon, Taylor's husband and Taylor's mom. I thought I had a picture of them too but it wasn't on my camera...hmmm.

Here is Dawn, one of the Bakers Dozen, with Taylor. I will have more of the Bakers Dozen on tomorrow's post.

Then back by the SCS booth in the afternoon I spotted ...

Jimmie (JPMAYO)...

and Carolina and Valerie!

And late in the day, right before I had to leave and not more than 20 minutes after she arrived, I spotted Cammie (Caroline King)! She was so sweet to have her picture taken with me! Cammie is one of the first friends I made on SCS and is very special to me.

Well I hope you enjoyed these stamp star sightings and I will be back with more tomorrow!
Thanks for coming by!
