What an Amazing week!!!

What a wonderful week it was in Anaheim California!!! I spent the week with 3 wonderful women and enjoyed all that the show had to offer. We took some classes and learned some amazing techniques to share with all of you.

Tim Holtz' new line of inks, papers, embellishments and dies cuts were amazing!!!!
Here is a sampling of a make and take that we took at the Advantus booth.
Claudine Hellmuth's class was absolutely delightful!!! We learned a dozen techniques with her amazing paints and I can't wait to teach them to you!!! This is the cute little book we made with a sampling of all the techniques inside.
My new favorite line of papers is Margie Romney Aslett's The Girl's Paperie!!! What a cute booth it was!!!

I totally love Jillibean Soup's Old World Cabbage Soup Line!!! Sooooo very cute!
The Crafty Secrets booth was another favorite!!! What cute little vintage images they have!!!
Another one of my favorites is Cosmo Cricket!!! Such bright and fun papers!!!

And Prima outdid themselves once again!!! Total Gorgeousness!!!!
I thoroughly enjoyed meeting old friends in real life!!! What a joy it was to have dinner with some friends from Little Red Scrapbook!!! We had a blast...Lisa Spiegel took this photo on her Iphone!

I also met some dear friends from Scrapping the Music:
Julie Tucker-Wolek
Lucy Edson
And Nathalie Kalbach!!

I was able to have dinner with my family from Santa Monica too!!! My dad, Carrie and Grandma Jean drove to Anaheim and we ate at McCormick and Schmicks....it was wonderful and it was awesome to be able to see them all again!!! I am one lucky woman!!

All in all, it was a fabulous week!!! Thanks for taking a moment to share it with me!!

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!!
