Pictures from CHA!!!



I'm home! I'm finally rested and almost through all my emails. We had a FABULOUS time! The weather was sunny and around 60 every day! We ate at Knott's Berry Farm and had their Famous Chicken! We also ate at PF Changs one night outside under heaters. Thank GOD for the heaters! Our hotel was within walking distance and we had the coolest Palm Tree Alley to walk down to get to the Convention Center. We hit the beach for a few minutes. It was quite windy and chilly but oh so beautiful!

Denise, Michelle and I were able to meet up with Priscilla and Lorelie! That was really awesome to finally meet them in person. Priscilla spent all day Sunday with us. We walked her feet off her! I wore a hole in the bottom of my bag from dragging it on the floor because it became too heavy to carry! We ran into Lorelie throughout the day and it was funny to see how much bigger her bag was everytime we saw her! We also ran into Milu for those of you who know her too! She is a HOOT! We all had a great time and laughed non-stop!

I can not even begin to tell you all the things we saw...papers, glitter, rhinestones, pearls, die cuts, ribbons, punches, embellies, glues...all the things that make a girls heart go pitter patter. LOL! I used Lorelie's idea and made a slide show. Much easier than posting each picture individually! I hope you enjoy it!
