Goin' back to Cali...Cali...Cali...

Very excited to be leaving today for California and the CHA Winter Show! Okay, technically I'm stopping in Denver first for a work detour, but that's a small sacrifice for a weekend in sunny L.A. with girls I adore and a convention center packed wall-to-wall with crafty yumminess!

If any of you are at the show, I hope you'll stop by and see me at the Imaginisce make-and-take table on Saturday or Sunday. We're doing a really fun little project using ALL the Imaginisce tools (even the brand-spankin' new ones), so you don't want to miss out on that!

Speaking of Imaginisce, here are a couple of layouts I created with the new Animal Crackers collection, just released last week.

I don't do that many two-pagers, but I had so many photos from our ferris wheel ride and this collection was perfect!

Love these ticket die-cuts...perfect for journaling OR titling!

I added a little baker's twine and some i-rock bling to the balloon bunch.

But these papers work for a lot more than just fair or circus photos...like this photo of my daughter sporting my "way-too-big" sunglasses.

The banner is an adhesive border sticker that I trimmed down just a bit. I hand-cut the wave using my Bo Bunny flexible ruler.

So that's it for my projects until after CHA. But I'll also be posting on the Imaginisce blog over the weekend with some of my show photos, so pop over there for some behind-the-scenes peeks.

AND...just for fun: if anyone gets the "Goin' back to Cali" reference in the title, leave me a comment telling me where it's from and I'll pick a random winner who'll win one of the Imaginisce make-and-take's from the CHA floor (along with some other goodies from my stash). Good luck!

First off, let's just say I am very jealous that you will be in California where it's suppossed to be in the 80's this weekend and I am in PA with a foot of snow. Enough said!

As for the "Going Back to Cali" reference, it's a Notorious B.I.G song. In fact, it's probably the only song he made that I even know.

Welcome to Cali! As soon as I read your post I had the song in my head. Oh the memories that music brings back! It's a Notorious B.I.G. song called "Going Back to Cali". Have fun at CHA and enjoy our weather!
