Well I made it to day 5! That was quite the undertaking! I hope you found as many things to admire and add to your "MUST HAVE" list as I did. This was a great show. It never ceases to amaze me how creative these manufacturers are. I am thankful for it. I come home from CHA creatively energized and ready to get to work! I have also been on a huge organizing binge and my work room in the basement has been hit hard! I will share the after photos next week. Should have taken a before but didn't think of it.
There are a few other photos I would like to share from California. We were lucky enough to get to do some siteseeing (THANKS Catherine and your tour bus!!) We had a great time!
Catherine needed to find a hat before we hit Beverly Hills. Isn't she cute!?
We headed out to the beach. Don't be fooled...it was FREEZING cold!!! We had dinner at Momma D's in Newport Beach...A MUST!! Delicious Italian fare and the best staff! A dining experience for sure.
Before I get to the GIVEAWAY I want to do some housekeeping. I haven't chatted about anything coming up with all of the CHA hoopla. Crop & Create Markham...
I am so excited for this event!!!! I have been developing the "First Impression Block Printing and Stamp Making Workshop" for awhile now and it has been the most fun I have had in a long crafting time!!! You know...get ready for some Vicki words of wisdom...sometimes it is about having fun. The fun comes in learning something totally new. It isn't just about "getting my photos on a page". You have to enjoy the process, too. Do you know what I'm saying? I want to see some of you in this class. It is fun, inky and something different. In the end, it will still be a tool in your quest to "get caught up" (although those are NEVER words you should hear uttered by a scrapbooker...never gonna happen LET> IT> GO>) I will be standing at registration with the project (and a taser...set on tickle)...take a look and allow yourself the opportunity to take a class for fun. You won't regret it...promise. I will bring the candy.
Here is a peek...
