No drama (no more drama in my life, no ones gonna make me hurt again)...

Hello from Anaheim, CA! I hope you guys aren't missing me too much yet. *wink* So far I have had quite the adventure. I arrived here on Saturday afternoon, met up with Kim and Alma, and went to set up the My Favorite Things booth. After that we had a fun dinner at the Rain Forest Cafe in Downtown Disney...yummy! Back at the hotel later that night I started having some pretty icky pain on my right side, which I figured was just from all the walking and whatnot. Took some tylenol and went to bed. After tossing and turning all night, I couldn't get comfortable and the pain got worse. I got scared that it was appendicitis, so Carolyn and Deb were sweeties and took me to the ER here. After several hours and tests, they confirmed that I have a kidney stone. Lovely, huh? I have never had one before, and hope to never have one again. But I did venture out for dinner last night with Kim, Laura, Em and Nicky, so I must be feeling a little better! If you think about it, say a prayer or send some healthy thoughts my way this week...I'd love that!

So needless to say, I didn't make it to the first day of CHA. Today I spent a little time walking the show, and I took some pics of some fun stuff to share with you! I am quite disappointed that October Afternoon didn't end up showing, though. I was really looking forward to seeing their new lines.

Anywho, I do have a card to show you! I made this last week for the sample board here at the show to highlight the new Spring Digipapers from MFT. I used Cindy's sketch challenge for this week as my jumping off point.
I love how this turned out (if I do say so m'self)! I printed the striped digipaper onto shimmer white cardstock, so it's nice and sparkly.

Ok, please forgive me for being not-so-chatty, I am POOPED! I will post pics tomorrow of the goodies!
