I'm Going to Winter CHA 2011

I have succumbed to peer pressure and will be going to Winter CHA 2011 in L.A. with Ms. Middlecamp.  So if you are going, please let me know, I want to make sure that I get to meet you in person!  We will not be hard to spot, just look for a really really really short blonde with really short hair next to an average height Chinese woman with really short hair. Chances are good that we would be bickering with each over.  Yeah, like I said, it won't be hard to spot us.  LOL!

I have yet to make it to the mall. Already a reluctant driver, I am pretty much terrified of driving in the snow.  Getting to and from work is all I can handle.  So I guess it's going to be slim picking for this family this Christmas, lol.  Meanwhile, I sit here dreaming of a tropical vacation, sigh... Here is a layout I did using Midnight Rooster's December kit, Scarlet and Rhet.

I used the Studio Calico's Fabrips strip to hold together the tiny banner cut out from Girl's Paperie's paper.  A few buttons for accent, pretty cute.
That's it really.  Again, if you are going to CHA, please let me know!!

Too bad that I'm not going...BUT I'm sure you'll have FUN!! Love your vacation page with the cute banners--which makes me want to soak in the sun(under the umbrella) in the tropics, too! LOVE it!

No CHA for me! But I do have my shopping done and presents wrapped. No cooking or baking though! Love your layout ... I am still not tired of banners yet .. just love them@

Oh, I wish I could go but I have to stay with my two little ones, perhaps in a couple of years? I love the brightness of your layout, it sure does remind me of warmer days.

By the way, I'm sorry if the email for the mini-kit didn't go through. Ugh! I was so excited I sent it out right after I read your blog! I sent another email just now, I hope that one goes through! (If it doesn't, could you please sent me another email? My addy is located if you click on my profile.)

Love this layout! Fun sunshiney colors :)

I still have shopping to do, too, but thankfully no snow to drive in. Although I'd really like some snow . . .

You had commented about my indoor photos--we actually have very little daylight here as well. Less than 8 hours today. But I have wonderful south-facing windows that let in a lot of light even in the wintertime. Oh, and the school photos were all shot with my 50mm/1.4 lens :)
