We have arrived!

After a very loooong plane ride (actually it was 2 plane rides with a layover in Vegas), we have arrived in sunny Anaheim, California! The cool thing about this place is that the sun is shining and the weather is warm...however, when you look in the distance, you see snow covered mountains. Very beautiful and very different from flat, mountain-less Virginia Beach :)

Today was a great start to our week. We started off by having brunch with the owners of a local scrapbook store in Richmond - Memories Galore. It was great to swap stories and share ideas with one another. We spent 2 hours with them but could have easily spent another 2!

Then, it was off to the Fiskars Finest Event. This show is reserved for Fiskars top customers and provides an opportunity to preview all the new releases before CHA officially starts. Fiskars actually owns several companies, including Heidi Grace, Cloud 9 and Li'l Davis. We bought every single one of their lines! Lots of cool new papers and embellishments...babies, bugs, travel, flowers, home, friends, beach and lots more.

Is anyone reading our blog?!?! We hope so :) If you are, go to the store today and tell Susan that you read our blog. Mention the secret code: Max's Backyard. This is one of the coolest new lines by Cloud 9 - PERFECT for boys and anyone who loves bugs! Anyway, mention Max's Backyard and get 25% off any one item of your choice. This is good for Sunday only and cannot be combined with any other discount. And, keep checking our blog for other announcements from the west coast. We'll be updating it daily :)

CHA starts bright and early tomorrow, so it's time to go to bed! Remember, Max's Backyard! Sunday only...
