And yes, I was WELL over the 100 Paper Project Challenge when I left, so I did buy some paper! And some ribbon...my newest obsession. Hey, it weighs less than paper so it is not as bad, right?!! ;)

Back on this Side of the World
Alright, so I have been back for a couple of weeks now. I honestly tried to blog sooner, but as anticipated, the jet lag, work and 3 things I call "children" have been rather distracting! ;)
California was truly awesome! I hit the ground running...first stop after the airport was In & Out Burger and it was just as I (and my arteries) remembered. From there I hit Target...twice! The next few days were spent shopping, eating, shopping, seeing my friends & family, shopping, and eating. Oh, did I mention I went shopping? 5 days was certainly NOT enough time. If I only had 2 more days, the damage I could have done...
A highlight of my trip was getting to meet up with 3 other ladies I met online through SplitCoastStampers. We met up in San Francisco at the Cheesecake Factory! As with all "good" crafters, we like our cheesecake! ;) We had so much fun talking, eating and walking around the city. They humored me as I browsed in H&M and the Gap! Internet shopping is great, but there is nothing like actually being able to see the clothes in real life!
Yes, I left my heart in San Francisco, but enough about my trip! Here is the info about the card posted above I made prior to my vacation.
