Back from California and CHA

I'm baaaaccckkk!!! My plane got delayed in Dallas until 6pm. I was supposed to be home at 4:30. I got to watch it snow. Then I got to watch snow accumulate on the plane while sitting inside the plane for 2 hours. But let's just skip over the stuff we'd rather forget.

California CHA was fun! The Paper Salon girls are so much fun! I met Ruth Akers in Dallas and had a slight delay there and it was SO FUN to have her with me there and for the rest of my journey. Ruth has been dubbed "roothuckers" by some of the girls. Linda Beeson was my roommate and she's the best! She was fun to walk the floor with, too, because everybody knows Linda! The Paper Salon booth rawked. This year they added about 10 feet to the booth to display the Karen Neuberger product, which, by the way, was very well received!

Sunday night I went to Disneyland with 3 Paper Salon girls, Anabelle, Kelly and Linda. We went through the Haunted Mansion and then rode some kiddie rides! One of the rides was a Tune Town, the other was the Buzz Lightyear space ride (sorry.. don't know the names! I'll see what I can find out). I took my photo in front of the Alice in Wonderland ride so I can post it next to the "baby melanie" photo (posted below) in my scrapbook. Can you believe they have the same ride and they look the same??? wow.

I met all the editors at PaperCrafts Magazine (I'll have photos later); the new editor, Amy W., at PaperWorks / Giftmaker; Tanya Fox from Cardmaker and Barb Sprunger. Saw lots of Peas and other girls that I'm on DT's with. The new product is all fantastic and can't even begin to name it all.

I got to spend time with my fellow Flair Girls Stacey, Donna, April, Amy Marsha and Paula. We met at the Rainforest Cafe in Downtown Disney, where, it just so happened that Lisa Bearnson and her kids were dining at, too.

I'm still trying to recoup. I'm posting a few pics here of the trip. More later.
