After what felt like travelling for days, I finally made it to Los Angeles airport. I was seated in a row of four, between two toddlers!!! It was my personal idea of hell, lol. Can you imagine being sandwiched between two littlies who cry, scream, poo, throw up, cry some more for 12 hours with no escape.??? It was a relief to finally touch down. And then we had the hell of immigration. Now this is always bad at the best of times, but 2 1/4 hrs, that was just frikkin unbelievable. I finally crawled through approx 2 secs before I lost the will to live.
When the shuttle dropped me outside the hotel, \I was a little worried as it looked like a really cheap hotel on the backstreets of Benidorm, but once inside I was quite surprised. The whole place has a vintage Moroccan theme and it is like living in a 70's Kasbah.!!! And kid ye not at the back there is an illuminated, coffin shaped swimming pool. I;ll try do some pics tomorrow.
Yesterday was quite relaxing and we ended up going out for Dinner with the Stampers anonymous team. We went to a Mexican , where the service was the most appalling I have ever encountered. Waiting for this, waiting for that, cold meals sent back, then sent back again. Waiting ages between courses, and them all coming out in the wrong order. We waited so long for desert to be offered to us that I purloined the pud from the table next to us. Don't
know what they were but OMG they were frikkin gorgeous dipped into some kind of fruit sauce. And tasting all the better for not paying for them!
On the plus side the table made guacamole was, simply to die for, so good we all ordered seconds, and the best rocks and salt Margaritas that I have had in a long long time.
so we have spent the day setting up the booth, finishing off samples,

Have spent the day setting up the booth, finishing off samples, making boards and generally having a fabulous time.!
I have taken plenty of video, just not sure how to upload them yet. Will have to wait till I get home and then Our Ben will sort it for me.
I took the next few shots of a certain someones booth being set up, do you think you can guess whose booth this is.??
That gorgeous broken doll - I want, I want, I want...
