CHA Update

Finally settling and back to everyday reality after another fantastic time away at CHA. Not sure how many make and takes were done but am thinking it was around the 500 mark - give or take a few. As always, totally loved catching up with familiar faces and then meeting lots of new people. The mini books we did turned out to be hit and they loved the new Kaisercraft bookshelf that stored them in. Here are a few photos to share with you - I would love to show you them all but took nearly 1000 (as you do - couldn't help but play with the new camera). If you are on facebook as many of you are - the other trip photos have been uploaded to my albums.

Got to meet up with and go out for tea with the gorgeous girls whom I am joining to take part in a circle journal for the next 12 months. . Feel free to keep track of what we are up to by checking out our blog. We are calling ourselves the Lucky 13. Each month we are sending photosof ourselves to the next person on the list and they are going to scrap them up for us. When we meet up with each other at CHA 2010 (gosh imagine thinking of this already), we will present each other with the pages and we will have a ready made album of ourselves created by these talented girls. One other twist - have just found out that the whole album is going to be created on canvas pages.....ohhhh ahhhhhh this is something I haven't done before. They are all such awesome designers, I hope I do it justice.
So for the first month I am sending photos to Jennifer. Then to Candice and so on.
Am thinking this is going to be a challenge and heaps of fun at the same time.
The day after the show Elena from Scrapbook Royalty gave up a day and took us ALL around Disneyland. I tell you what, we would never have seen as much as we did without here. It was so much fun having the whole team together (minus Mick who was taking classes).

Thank you so much Elena for sacrificing a couple of days to show us around Disneyland and taking us outlet shopping. Yes we did a little shopping. I even got told off by hubby for stripping the bank accounts I didn't really hink I spent that much - the girls are certainly excited with their new shoes and I again have come home with a couple more pairs of jean. A girl has to do what a girl has to do. As the saying goes"
Its easier to ask forgiveness that seek permission" haha
