Well after a FABULOUS 5 days up at the NEC with WOW Embossing Powders teaching over 360 amazing peeps :) :)
My hubby has whisked me away for a week, all I knew was the flight was at 10.25 from terminal 5, so with my powers of deduction, I deduced it was either Houston, LA or Nairobi !!!!
And after a long flight and what seemed like an even longer wait in customs....yes we got the guy who had, well let's say...."issues" and wanted to excerpt his authority....idiot !!! So much for 'we pledge to treat you with courtesy, dignity and respect" we landed in LA.
But, apparently we're only here for two days then we're off somewhere else.... Another surprise !!!
We're in a place called Calabasas, allegedly the home of the Kardashians, jeez they'll have trouble telling us apart !!!!
The hotel is just gorgeous.....

We had to try and stay awake so off we ventured to find a Cheesecake Factory, and find one we did.
I was VERY good and went for my favourite chicken salad sandwich with roasted almonds off their skinnylicious menu

We were right next to a shopping mall, so it felt compulsory to 'pop' in there and I found Paper Source..... Pretty much the same as our Paper Chase, just better LOL.... I found something there I just HAD to buy for Nina.

We had a quick nosey in the Coach store :) but then jet lag got the better of us, so we gave in and drove back to the hotel.
Rick has something planned today, so I really need to sleep....I don't know what it is yet, but I'll fill you in when I get back.
Oh yeah, and it's really hot and sunny here :)

3 and counting....

We’re at the 3rd trade show.... this year !!!!!!
To say I’m tired is an understatement, but there’s something about the shows plus adrenaline that just keeps you going.
There’s nothing better than teaching people new techniques and that’s what these shows are all about. That and having fun of course !!!
We’re all set up...this is the calm before the storm ;) we have so many new things to show this year, it makes it all the more exciting.
One of the best things about trade show shows is meeting up with buddies in the industry and even though I see Leandra and Mark (PaperArtsy) every week (we quiz together) it was great to go out with them last night.

Richard and Mark look like they’re praying, when in fact they were having a bald off 不不不不 Steve has more hair than both of them put together so as a gesture of kindness he hid his. 不不不不不  It’s now 6am, I’m ready to jump in the shower and get this day started... think of me standing from 8am to 6pm.... I hope you get to sit a lot m…

One for the Mums ...

In celebration of the fabulous Catherine Pooler Inks about to hit the store, I thought I'd pop a little card on here. Take a folded card base, I always make mine from card stock, then I know the piece on top is going to match perfectly. then cut a smaller piece and perforate the edges, you can use a perforating blade, if your trimmer has one, or there are many dies out there that do this in a snip ! Using the WOW! Embossing Powder Layered Hearts Stamps, I inked up and stamped using the Catherine Pooler Daydream, Aquatini and Skylight Inks.
Embellish with a Uni Ball Signo White Gel Pen, one of my favourites !!!
Finish off with the Mothers day sentiment from the WOW! Embossing Powder Everyday Sentiment Stamps, inked in Versafine Onyx Black, adhere with foam pads. Check out PAPERBOX for a great selection  of card stock. Thanks for looking
