a little california on a snowy day

I'm baaaaaaaaaack. Actually I've been back for 5 days and they've been busy ones so I'm just now doing a little Cali post. One word describes my trip...AWESOME. From the first star sighting (Gwen Stefani at the airport in TO) to the beaches, the whole CHA experience to navigating L.A.'s crazy highways (thank goodness I brought my GPS!) I had a great time. Oh and I got to wear flip flops on a beach in January, I am truly a lucky girl.




Here are just a few of the 1250 pics I took, you can find more here



The sign is really huge and I'm such a geek cause I was SO excited to see it.


On the steps of the Kodak Theatre where the Oscars and American Idol are filmed.



We went for a tour of stars' homes through Beverly Hills, this is Simon Cowell's house.



Love how the fireman took their lunch break in Venice Beach.




The start of the show. We were serenaded by bagpipers, so cool. Candy Spelling cut the ribbon.


Here are a few shots of sample layouts/projects from the show. There was so much inspiration provided by some seriously talented scrapbookers!




Maya road tray.

They introduced some new trim and chipboard and they had a great make n take



Prima. Their samples were insane. So many flowers and bling...wow.

Jillibean, a personal fave, did not disappoint!

I love, love this line from Cosmo Cricket and really adored this layout.


All in all a fantastic experience! Big thanks to Carolyn and Joanne for making this happen. I CANNOT wait to get my hands on all of these new products. Won't have to wait too long, many of them start shipping over the next few weeks!
