CHA Trip Recap: Part 1

Last night I returned from a three day trip to California where there was lot of fun, work and patterned paper.  I flew over to CA with Diana and Jennie and we met up with Heather once we were there.

We started out at the Prima Marketing Headquarters for a class with Donna Downey. Loved the project in the class. We started with a 6" X 18" canvas and used many layers of product to create a lovely finished piece.

While at Prima, we added flowers to these big, floppy hats and posed for a photo. Prima wanted us to wear these hats around the CHA show, but they were way too big to wear any longer than the photo.

We spent that night at Disneyland along with many, many other people. It was so crowded. Note to self: Don't go to Disneyland on a Saturday.

Despite the crowds, we still went on several rides and had a great time. (How could we not have a good time, we were at Disneyland!) We stopped for dinner at Orleans Cafe to share a Monte Cristo Sandwich for dinner. This is a ham and cheese sandwich that is battered and fried, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served with a berry sauce.  One sandwich is enough to feed 4 people!  So decadent and delicious.

While I was away, I missed the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby. Max came in 3rd out of 20 boys, so I think it was successful!

Watch for a full CHA show recap coming soon!
