Challenge update - please see 23rd march entry for details and link to artwork. Please give me 2 days to update the entries list as I am on holiday in la la land.
Ok - I landed in LA to 75 degrees heat when all I had packed was wintry clothes. Great!. Emily met me at the airport with her beautiful daughter Ivy. I was so nervous becuase Ive been in awe of Em's work for a while now. This was akin to meeting Monet. After the starstruck moment I fell in love with them both instantly. She took me back to her home and where I met mick who is just as lovely. As much as I wanted to keep my eyes open they kept blinking hard and slow until Em mentioned we should visit sweetpeas and Michaels. I developed my second wind and went scrap shopping. Oh yes .... no sleep and scrap shopping makes for a great splurge on stash. We came home to a fabulous home made curry a little bit of scrapping. I created a yummo layout on zero sleep - this is obviously something Im going to have to look into in future. I gave in at 10pm (early compared to uk bedtime of 1am!!) with the sweet knowledge that Em and I were to meet Tara for lunch. Did I say that casually? I mean, how many fabulous Tara's do we all know?
Slept like a baby in princess Ivy's bed and arose in time to get ready for lunch minus a hairbrush (left that in cambridge) and had to use a doll size comb. Thank you Ivy!. Off we bobbed to Irvine to Scrapbook Oasis to meet Ms Whitney and her fabbo collection of gorgeous children. To actually meet this amazing woman was one thing but to have her welcome me with a warm hug was another. I got to meet mckenna first off and she is just a peach. Her other children were in the car watching a dvd but I got to meet them at the mexican restaurant we all went to eat at. Lets just say the kids (well, the boys - Drew and Nathan) liked to take the ride out of my english accent so in return I turned my eyelids inside out and made them hurl their lunch all over the table. mwahahahahahahaha.
Em and I came home to veg and play with Ivy. Ive taken some snaps but will post them when I get to the hotel as Im staying another night and we are supposed to be scrapping (how unusual) Im going to steal all of her creative brain cells tonight and make way for scrapworld domination.
See y'all xxx
