Finally Posting in the USA

Finally got some time to post. Josh and I are now in San Franciso. We both arrived in LA on Friday last week. We did a class with Tim Holtz on the Saturday. It was a four hour class with ranger and Tim was one of the three teachers. We both had a great time and Tim was great letting us have our photo taken with him. Sunday was the first day of the show.
It was a big thrill to see my birthday gift I had done for Diane at the show. It was featured on the back wall of the booth. I spent the day wandering around the show spending shop money on lots of new and beautiful papers and embelishments. I even found a gentleman who had some clock charms which he had in his warehouse for over 25 years. I got all 300 of them! So excited as I have a special project planned for them.
 Monday was my day for a demo on Graphic 45's booth. I had a wonderful time and met lots of lovely ladies from all over the states and overseas. Everyone was so friendly and I had a great time. I could have spent all day doing the demo, it was so much fun. Monday night Graphic 45 took those from the design team at CHA out out for dinner. We all enjoyed meeting each other for the first time and catching up with old friends (Gloria and I met last year) Special thanks to the Graphic 45 team, who looked after us so well.

On Tuesday Josh and I spent the day at Disney, we spent a great day doing rides. This one is Josh on the mad hatters tea party ride. We both got into a tea cup which spins around. Josh made it go faster by turning a wheel in the middle of the cup, he was having great fun at my expense! We were able to spent all day there and even got to watch the evening parade which was amazing.
Will post again tomorrow as the internet is playing up and it is way past my bed time.
thanks for looking


  1. It was really nice to meet you Jane! Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  2. Sounds like you and Josh are having a great time, thanks for sharing your photos :)

  3. That sounds exactly like something Josh would do! Looks like you were a big hit. Can't wait to see you all again in May. I've booked Rachel and I and 2 friends in for the All Day Scrap - don't panic - we'll find a motel ;)

  4. Great to see your photo's Jane. Saw you on the G45 blog - glad you had a good time and can now relax - gotta love Disney.... Hugs x

  5. So happy to meet you and Josh in person. Loved seeing the framed birthday gift you gave to Diane. The photos don't do this piece justice. It is gorgeous and so very detailed. Hope to see you at CHA-S.

  6. It was wonderful to see you again, Jane! I have to tell you, this is how bad my memory is...I saw the photo of the group and was like, hey I have a coat just like that...duh! The next time I put my coat on...the sleeves were rolled up to my elbows! I was roaring with laughter. Not to make fun of your stature....but....brahahaaaaaa!
