Hello everyone! I didn't take very many pictures. I was too busy chatting away. I did get a few, I dont like the way I look in most of them. I honestly take awful pictures, plus I need a better camera. I wanted to bring my big Canon, which is what I use to take pictures of my cards, I didn't have enough room in my purse. So I had to bring my crappy camera!
I got to the Hotel around 4:30 and checked in. Angie and I shared a room my first night and her last night. The room was beautiful we were on the 21st floor. Which is at the very top! There was a beautiful view of LA...
Once again this camera sucks, the white area almost in the center of the top of the hill, is the Hollywood sign.
Here's mine and Angie's room. I actually took these photos on my last night..
When I first arrived to drop off my stuff in the room, Angie put some goodies on my bed. She gave all of us M&Ms with Tilda's on them and they say Magnolia Mini World.. and they are PINK, white and purple.. and PINK!!!! :) LOL She also gave me a beautiful box and filled it with some stamping goodies, stuff I've really been wanting for a while!! You are the BEST Angie thanks so much!!
After the Convention on Sunday night we all rode the shuttle to the JW Marriott and me and Angie went to our room to get ready for dinner. We went to Wolfgang Puck. It was DELICIOUS!!! Angie, Suzanne, Diana and I all got the sea bass, I never had it before, I loved it!
Here's me and Suzanne on the left side of the table, Diana, Angie and Sheila on the other side. Barb was taking the picture. We would have asked the waitress to take all of our picture but she was having enough difficulty just bring our food and drinks.. as it was we had to ask twice for things before we got them :P
We got back to our room a little after 11:30 and Angie and I talked for hours! I think it was after 2:30 AM before we decided to ty to go to bed.. then we were up before 6. We went downstairs for breakfast before she left :(
This was us at breakfast..
We had so much fun together.. I really didn't want her to go :(
Here's some pictures from Monday at CHA.
Here's me in front of the Mini Magnolia World booth. I should have checked my pictures I wish the whole banner was in the picture.. :(
After I ate lunch I walked over to the Stampavie booth to meet my DT pal Michelle from my Just Magnolia DT. It was so nice to meet her and chat for a few minutes. The Stampavie DT samples were amazing. A real treat to see in person.
I colored most of the day with Barb, once I came back from lunch it was time to color with Suzanne for a couple hours. Her coloring just blows me away. It's AMAZING!!!
While me and Barb were coloring we kept noticing our markers acting up so we went over to the Copic booth and I met Marianne Walker. She's so sweet and showed me how to do a "tune up" on my markers! Barb and I both got lessons! :)
On Monday night Barb, Lisa and I went to Trader Vic's for dinner. We had a lot of fun chatting about our blogs and design teams. Tons of fun!
Tuesday morning I woke up and met Diana, Roy, Barb, Shelia and Valerie(who I didn't get any pictures with :( ) We met for breakfast and headed over for the last day at CHA. Barbro, the owner of Magnolia Sweden came over to the booth and Diana introduced her to me. It's such a pleasure to meet her. I never thought I would. So here's Diana, Barbro and me. :)
It was so great I had so much fun! Diana has asked me to go to CHA next January in Anaheim next year! I'm so excited. I'm counting down the days already! Next year I will take better pictures and more of them. There's so much I didn't take pictures of, I was having so much fun in the booth with my Magnolia-licious family I didn't want to leave them!
Have a great day I hope you enjoyed reading about my trip!
