Sizzix at CHA

Sorry about the blur on some of these. The lighting in the convention center made it hard to get good photos. (And I was trying to take these quickly.) Don't they have some super cute stuff coming out?

This blog has some great pics as well.

Provo Craft make n takes at CHA

These were the best ones at CHA! Big projects that showed how to make the most of your Cricut.

Day 1 was a purse made with the new Hannah Montana cartridge. I don't have a pic of the purse, but here is a corner of their space decorated with the cart.

Day 2 was a hat box made with a new cart (I think it is a European themed one)

Day 3 was my favorite! I love this Americana flag. The silhouette is from a new cart but I can't remember the name.

Day 4 was this cute frame. Its supposed to have different words around the opening but I lost them on the floor somewhere so I made these words with my cricut when I got home. I likethe way it turned out.

Lastly, there was another corner of the booth, a bathroom, decorated with the new SpongeBob cart. Look at this!

I know my kids would love this bathroom, lol.
