Winter CHA '12 Flashback: Quick Quotes

Guess what?!?!?  We have a snow day today!  During times like these do I appreciate winter more.  Now I have lots of time to catch up craft wise and do other worldly chores.  It just feels so good to sleep in and be lazy.  But I won't do that because I want to accomplish many things today.

One of the booths that I enjoyed during the Winter CHA in Anaheim last month was that by Quick Quotes.  I never knew of Quick Quotes before (click here to learn more about them), but I can tell from their booth that it is a very established scrapbooking company. I always admire family owned and based crafting companies, and Quick Quotes has been added to my list.

As you can see in the photo above, there are a couple of long lines of people on both sides of the booth, waiting to check out what Quick Quotes has to offer.  Do you see me in line?  I waited at least 30 minutes for my turn, and I can tell you that it was worth the wait.  We were to make a beautiful shadow box from the Timeless 8 x 10 Canvas Kit.  I never made a shadow box before, and I enjoyed every minute in making this one.

And after you finish your shadow box, they give you a nice pink and black scrapbooking tote.  That really helped in carrying a lot of paraphernalia and goodies during the show.  It was also handy during my travels after the show.

I admit that I haven't done much scrapbooking lately, but Quick Quotes did rekindle that flame - making me want to do more scrapbooking.  I have a strong feeling that I'll be visiting their site more often, and maybe try their kits as well. 

'Til next blog!

this shadow box is the black and white combination which gives an elegant feel to it.
