Starbucks, of course.

Day two was a surprise trip to Universal Studios's been 24 years since we were last's changed a wee bit :) :) we had a perfectly sunny day 90 degrees, a little hot, but gorgeous just the same.
Just look at that blue sky :) :)

Universal is a fun place, there was an 'England' area with a red london bus AND a mini....

Now it looks like a real one and I can confirm it is a REAL one...see it looks perfectly normal with me....then Rick stood next to it......

LOL.... it looks like a toy car, I don't think we'll be getting a mini anytime soon, not without a sunroof anyway LOL !!
Ok, now for a bit of fun, I couldn't resist this....Where's Wally.....

You'll need to look closely....
Rick needed glasses to see him...

So, a fun day was had but we couldn't leave without having the obligatory Funnel Cake, seriously, you NEED to try one of these....

It's loaded with strawberries, cream AND ice cream, I don't think it's many calories !!!!
The day was finished off with the icing on the cake, no, I didn't eat another cake !!! But we did get to meet our lovely friend Donna (I love this girl) she drove an hour to meet us and have dinner with us, we had lots of laughter, she's such a sweetie... Oh yeah, and she loves ice cream !!!

Today was my mums turn for a pressie, but it's a surprise, so you'll have to wait :)
We're leaving Calabasas today and going ????? I don't know... Hee hee, I love it !!! But not before we check out this little town and get some picci's and breakfast.
Fill you in when I get there

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
