111 Layouts and 1 Free Meal

If you do anything less than 25 layouts in a day you are a complete slacker! OK, I'm just kidding, but Krista, Kristen, Kathy and I started making layouts at 11:00 on Friday and by 5:00 we had completed 111 layouts. Why would we be so obsessed you ask? Well, sometimes we do a "make and take" at our booth sometimes we kit product together and do a "take and make", but this year we are just doing a "take".

You see, I wanted customers that place orders with us to have a layout to help merchandise the product in their stores. Our booth really isn't big enough to allow several people to be making layouts and if I give a kit, the store owner still has to take her time or pay someone else their time to put the layout together....... as a small business owner myself, I know there is never enough help or enough time. So, right now we have a free layout for the first 111 stores that place their order (I said right now, because we might find time to complete even more).

I was going to photograph some of them to show you all, but my sweet hubby boxed them up and put them in the crate before I got a chance! I guess you'll just have to get over to Booth 1345 to see them in person.

On another note, if there's no such thing as a free lunch....... maybe there is such a thing as a free dinner. That's right, we want to take you and your friend to dinner with us the first night of the show. What will this cost you? First you need to leave a comment telling us why you want to come to dinner with us and why we should pick you. Then, you have to get yourself to CHA. Finally, you have to be willing to endure an evening with the infamous Lindsay Moore...... the man with the cute shirt, Julie Comstock..... that's me, the girl with the whitest skin, Eric Comstock...... the luckiest man on earth, Kristen........ the smartest blonde at the office and hopefully Maren Benedict and Debbie Olsen..... two of thee most talented designers. If you won't be at CHA, but you know people who will, let them know about this contest. We'll leave it open until Wednesday @ midnight and announce the winner Thursday morning.

One last thing, congratulations Angela @ 10:02, you are today's winner. Send your address to kristen@cosmocricket.com and she'll get you your prize.

Well, hey, I'll be the first one to post that I'd love to dine with the Cosmo Cricket crew! :)

I WILL be at CHA this weekend, and am so excited to see all the new goodies! Cosmo is consistently a good seller at my store, both online and in person, and I really love the idea of a "take" layout. I like to see all the projects at the shows, but rarely take the time to stand in line to do a project at each booth, so when I get home, I don't have anything fun to show off...

So anyway, I'd love to dine with you guys and pick your brains for some fun ways to show off my new Cosmo Cricket goodies that I'm sure to order at the show!

thelegacylady said...

I would love to dine with you all - just to get to know the geniuses behind one of my favorite lines - and that is saying a LOT since I am all about Digital Scrapbooking! Can't wait to see your new stuff at CHA!

Veronica Hugger said...

If Larry's not going to be at CHA, then I'm not going.

Becky said...

Dinner with the CC crew would be so much fun!!!
Good luck everyone!!

Lindsay said...

TrulyEarnest said...

This sounds like a blast! Dinner and fun. Do I get to bring my fellow CHA'ers.....Can't wait to see all of your new stuff

NanaBeth said...

I am a slacker-I don't do that many layouts in a year! I am ashamed.

mjjjjtw said...

Wow I wish I was lucky enough to get to go to CHA and see the layouts and have a free dinner. I guess I will just have to wait and see what you post on your blogg. I'm waiting to see what everyone comes out with. I love CHA and wish it would come to Utah so I could go see! I Love the new things that you have came out with so far and I Loved Larry the Temp, it makes me want to look everyday and see if you have more. Great Job Cosmo Cricket keep up the great work. Thanks, Jayne

Lisa Spiegel said...

Okay, how much fun would this be??? You guys never fail to crack me up and leave me smiling! Thanks for the opportunity and I hope to meet you at CHA!

kasmello said...

I too wish I was at CHA...boohoo!! Of course always looking forward to see what's next!! LOVE YOU!

Kristin Hayne said...

What a FABULOUS and very GENEROUS thing to do for the stores!! You guys rock for doing 111 layouts!! There had to be some caffeine at that crop!!
See you guys at CHA!! LOVE the new lines!!

apaintergirl said...

chelle

Jennifer Buck said...

OMHeck! First, I will already be at CHA....and hanging out in your booth daily! ...I promise to bring a bib or something since I will be drooling over all the new stuff! ;) ...and I will warn you in advance that you should check my pockets before I leave..... ;) I LOVE your products ....and no, a restraining order is not necessary..... but would LOVE the opportunity to hang out with creative Cosmo team!

Julie said...

Chelle,

You crack me up. I was definitely not a popular kid! Dining with us is more like dining with the breakfast club... Kristen is the cute one, Eric is not a jock, but would be the well-dressed one, Lindsay would be.... hmmm, I don't know who Lindsay would be!!!! I would be the nerd!

AJ said...

I am rooming with Maren but WOULD LOVE win dinner with you all!!!
what a fun time that could be. Although, we may stalk you enough in the booth that you might consider a restraining order on us! :)

CHA here we come!

AJ said...

and I will have to add that cosmo sounds like the funnest group to be a part of as well- beside amazingly awesome paper!!! ;)

Beth said...

I'll be at CHA and how could I pass up a chance at a free meal? I could also challenge you on pastiest skin, LOL.

pam bennett said...

omg.
would be a dream.come.true.
!!!

Chantel Mernickle said...

Hello there! I am defenitly going to CHA and would love to go to dinner with a smart blonde (you dont get to meet many of those!) And i just would like to add that I Love your products and cant wait to get my hands on your new lines! SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!

YourScrapbookStash.com said...

Cannot WAIT to see all of the new stuff at the show.

And we can compare our white skin! I don't get out much so the sun and I don't really meet anymore. I do a lot of my 'outside' activities indoors or at night.

Absolutely Everything said...

You guys are all so great...what a great idea. At AbsolutelyEverything, we love your stuff! Keep up the great work!!

Two Scrapbook Friends said...

Dinner with the Cosmo Cricket crew!! That would make my trip to CHA totally memorable! I love Cosmo Cricket and would have so much fun bragging to all my friends and customers back home!! Please pick me! Carolyn W.

Queen of Paper said...

Oh please pick me!!! Not only will I be at CHA, but I also live 30 mins away from it :)

I have been a Cosmo Cricket fan for a long time now and I just ordered the new lines. I'm so excited because they shipped today.

Hanging out with your team sounds like such a blast! I've got my fingers crossed. Thanks for this fun contest.

Oh and by the way, I LOVe, LoVe, lOvE the new products! Way to go!

Pam said...

I will be at CHA this weekend and cannot wait to see all the Cosmo new products! I did get a Cosmo Tie a while back!I love your idea of a "take"! I think dinner with Cosmo would be a perfect way to celebrate my first CHA!

Shannan Teubner said...

How fun!!! Let's see...I will already be there, and I'm friends with Maren and Debbie, so I will fit right in! :D

itsallaboutme said...

Because what could be cooler then dining with the Cosmo Cricket Crew...talking shop (scrapbooking that is), eating a good meal and making new friends(you can never have enough good friends)...that is my idea of a good time...

Peace

everythingscrappn.com said...

I think I should win dinner with Cosmo Cricket because I just love your products. I really like the sneeks I've seen of the new stuff coming up. I too am a small business owner and we should encourage and support each other!

I can't think of any way to make CHA more exciting and fun than to have dinner with you all! We could even do a podcast!
xooxx

Kimberly said...

I cannot wait to attend CHA and see your new product in person!! Dinner with you would be fabulous! You are so hilarious, I am sure that I would be in stitches the whole time! :)
Have a wonderful show!!

beadshop said...

Sounds like fun....I'd love to have a bite with you guys!!

jill said...

Who's buying Julie, me or you? I think you need to pick me because you didn't get enough of me 16 years ago when I prematurely moved out. I owe you, or would this mean you were owing me? Whatever.. this is a great prize everyone, I can't think of anyone more fun to hang out with than the Cosmo crew.

I'm going to call your bluff julie on the nerd kid comment you made below. Since I happened to know the kid (well teen) Julie... you're misleading everyone! Now, well.. now maybe you could be called nerd. LOL, J/K

Jill

MindyMew said...

Ya'll crack me up!! Love the blogs, love the sneak peaks. I'm looking forward to hitting your booth and ordering stuff - free layouts are a GREAT idea since layouts sell product! Hope to win the dinner out! See you soo.

KK Designs said...

We will be at CHA this weekend, all the way from New Zealand. We love your products, so much so that we have made the very first appointment on the first day with you guys!

Love to have dinner with you guys to get to know you all better on a personal level....and also to have lots of photos to share with folks back here in New Zealand....

Stacey Adams said...

We would love to have dinner with you! See you at CHA (and maybe at dinner!)

ellenhutson said...

Oh where to begin - I love your sense of humor and enjoy laughing together with others, I adore the Cosmo Cricket line, but REALLY need to talk with you about having a consistent 8x8 or 6x6 product for use in cardmaking to sell in my online store, and I've been trying to make arrangements for a dinner with Debbie (but am willing to crash your party if she needs to pick who she is going to eat with - LOL!)

scrap4fun said...

I will be attending CHA, I'm from Scrapbooking 4 Fun in Grand Forks, ND and it has been -35 below without the windchill so I can't wait to get out of the cold weather! I'm so excited to see all of the new product! Love all of your new product lines coming out! Cosmo Cricket is always a good seller in my store! The take layout is a great idea!

I would love to have dinner with all of you! See you at the show!

Frantic Stamper said...

Hi,
I'm Fran and I will challenge Julie's "whitest skin" claim.... and my very good friend/employee Kathy (the most boysterous redhead with a contagious laugh).... would love to join your crew for Dinner at CHA!! Pick us!! You won't be sorry!!!

Sharon Holmesley said...

My friend, Teresa, and I will be at CHA and can't wait to come by your booth and see all of the new stuff. Dinner would be heaven! I would love to just sit and listen to all of your scrapbooking stories and learn from you.

Cheryl said...

Looking forward to seeing what I ordered from you (yippee for auto-ship) at CHA!! I love your blog for many things not the least of which is for inspiration & your "oh so funny" sense of humor, can't wait to see the guy in the cute shirt, the sweet lady with the skin as white as mine, and the very lucky guy (my husband better feel the same about me ((of course, he does!)) See you Sunday bright and early, really want one of your creations for my store!

the Holmes Crew said...

Wow - Dinner with you guys would be a hoot! Your booth at CHA is always my favorite - not only because of the fabulous new product and the fantastic booth decor and design but because of how wonderful and friendly you all are! You always seem to be having a great time and the humor and laughter present is contagious! I always find myself wandering through your booth many times a day!

It would be so much fun~

Tammy Harp said...

Dinner with the Cosmo Gang sounds like a fun evening. You all have some of the best customer service in the industry, and only exceptional people can claim that! :) I would love to meet you and to hear some of your stories. :)

Unforgettable Scrapper said...

Wow..a dinner offer with the Crew! What a dish! Love to chat it up with the Cosmo Cricket gang and see all the new goodies. I'll be traveling from Northern British Coumbia and can't wait to see all the new goodies!
Cheers!

christina said...

Chris Nicholson said...

Dinner sounds like fun! I'm so excited to see all the new lines in person, and I'm ready to order! I think it's great you'll be giving out layouts for the first orders - that's a lot of work put into it!

Brooke said...

Kristi O said...

Well 'cause Cosmo Cricket rocks and its our favorite product.... we are dropping our name in the hat. We are from a little town in Idaho and we love love love your lines. Dinner would be a hoot, I would love to toss around ideas and tell you some of the fun ones we have done. We think outside the box here.

gencraft said...

We weren't going to go to CHA this year, but if we win dinner with the Cosmo Cricket crew that will definitely change our minds!

Although I've never posted before, I'm a follower of the blog and read it every single day! I feel like I know all of you and would absolutely love to have dinner with you! Can't wait to get my hands on the new stuff. Hope to see you there!

gingernelson said...

I would love to join you for dinner! I am fun, outgoing, silly and love to scrap! and love your products! I think I would add excitement to the dinner table! :)

ginnieg said...

OMG How could anyone top this. I am a brand new digi scrapper (just learning Elements) and what a joy it would be to meet real folks behind the PC screen.
I am not a very lucky person so I will be crossing all my fingers AND toes.

kfrankly said...

I won't be in the area so I am not trying to win dinner with you guys, though that would be fun.

I have a question.... what does CHA stands for?

I read about it all the time on your blog and I feel left in the dark since I have no idea what it is - though it sounds like fun!

Julie said...

kfrankly,

Good question! CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) is such a part of my life that I forget it might not be a part of everyone elses. It's a trade organization and they have two trade shows each year. The biggest show is in a week in Anaheim. That's what all the buzz is about.

sherrygrove said...

I've been looking for a free meal for years, and I'm happy to share it with fun, happy (although tired) companions!

akissonthechic said...

I sooo want to win this... O.k. I'm gonna go get some "dirt" from my bud Lisa F. on Lindsy so we can REALLY have some fun!!! Dinner in the "Cosmos" sounds delightfully delish...

Amy said...

Scrapbooks & More in Knoxville would love to have dinner with you! Your products sell so well for our store! We're just a little country mixed with a whole lot crazy so I'm sure it would make for great conversation!

Barbara said...

It would just be a hoot to sit in the same room with you all!! Have fun at CHA!! I'll be checking in. =)

mlehane said...

Dinner with Lindsay, Eric, Juli, and Kristen plus the CC Design team--How much fun can a girl have in one night?! Wait! Don't answer that! I would love to talk with you about using your new scrappin' goodies for future projects. I am bringing a few gifts for you from past projects you helped me out with. Can't wait to show them off to you and get a closer look at the new stuff!Looking forward to seeing all of you...

LaCoe said...

Hey Cosmo Cricket Crew,
What could be more fun???? I will be at CHA and buying for a "New" store. I would love to have dinner with all of you! We already carry Cosmo Cricket and can't keep it in stock! I would also LOVE to rack all of your creative brains! Cosmo Cricket is my favorite line and I am not just saying that to win dinner with all of you!! P.S I love the idea of a "take" layout when we place our order! See you Sunday morning at 9:01 am!! (I'll be the one running to see all of you again!!!)

ScrapAloha said...

Have a successful CHA! Great idea on the sample layouts! I won't be at CHA, but someone will have a great time! Enjoy!

jennmom2000 said...

I will be at CHA and I would love to have dinner with all of you! I simply love Cosmo Cricket and I think that, Julie, you are darling! I love your blog and you are so real. I am sure your whole staff is as wonderful as you make it seem on the blog!

mamachele said...

Lisa and I will be at CHA of course! We have to have our cosmo fix! We will see you there and in the meantime - please send out my preorder so it will be waiting for me at Girlfriends when we get back home again.
BTW - can we leave now? I am so excited I don't want to wait another minute!
always

PHI KAPPA SCRAPPA said...

I will be at CHA helping Elena from Scrapbook Royalty spread the word about our charity crops. It would definitely be a treat to spend the evening with you all. I will even volunteer to be the designated driver for the night! So pick me and we'll party the night away.
Thanks

Suzanne J Dean said...

Well, let's see...I have to take "happy pills" in order to fly anywhere so even getting on a plane to fly to CA for 5 hrs is an event in itself. I literally will scare the pants off of everyone on the plane so they will probably want me off the plane quickly, lol! I've been saving my pennies for 2 years to come out to CHA & I'm going to enjoy every moment there (even kissing the ground when I survive the plane ride)---and to top it off I could have dinner w/ the Cosmo Crew, how could I ask for more! I'd love to hang with you all & have some fun!
See ya in CA!!

hugz,
Suzanne Dean

sharon said...

oh gosh .. I would really really love to go to dinner with you peeps .. It will take me like a whole day of travelling all the way from the far east with 2 stopovers and in cattle class .. so a dinner with you would be fab fab fab ..

Michelle said...

We would love to dine and chat with you all. 111 layouts!!! woo hoo!!! I will be by the booth with Monika...see ya in just a few days.
Michelle

Amy Solovay said...

What a fun idea! I'd love to have dinner with you guys!

Top 10 reasons I'd like to go:

1) Because I'd love to show you guys in person how pretty your papers look when they are transformed into paper lace.

2)Because I would love to have dinner with the Breakfast club!! Haha! But can't I be the nerd? C'mon!

3) Because it will be my first CHA and I'd like to make it as memorable as possible!

4) Because it would really be a trip to meet someone whose skin is as white as mine.

5) Because I need more fodder for all my blogs, (I have 5 of them, at last count) and you guys seem photogenic, crazy, and generally blog-able.

6) Because I'd really love to meet you all!

7) Because we will have lots to talk about- it will be great to meet people who love paper as much as (or more than?) I do!

8) Because you guys seem like so much fun to hang out with.

9)Because I'd really like to tell you guys in person how much I appreciate your designs, your blog, your fun web site (which always makes me smile).

10) free food? I'm in! :D

Julie O. said...

I've been tryin' to shed a few from waistline and I am most certain that dinner with you guys would have me belly laughin' enough to do the trick. ;)

Certified Scrapaholic said...

Ok, yes, the product rocks, the staff is fab and if you pick me I promise to wear a toga made completely with Cosmo Cricket paper. You supply the paper, I will supply the scissors and glue!

And yes, I had to ship them ahead or I would have been considered a terrorist or something!

Would love to hang with you for dinner, you all rawk my world for sure!

SaraP said...

OMG...what an awesome opportunity!! I can't wait to get to CHA to see all the new Cosmo in person. Your lines always fly off our shelves in the store. You've really out-done yourselves this time! I love the idea of the 'take' idea...I, too, never take the time to stop and do make-n-takes at all the booths. We've only got 3 days to cover it all & we have to keep moving. How awesome would that be to come back with a genuine Cosmo layout to show off???!!! Can't wait to see you guys & hopefully chat over lunch :)

Sara said...

Wow! 111 layouts?! Incredible!

Leslie Kiley said...

Free Meal , We are in! Love your product and would jump at a chance to get to know you all better! there is nothing like a closer look to make you fall in love all over again!

Elizabeth said...

I am so excited for CHA. What a nice added bonus it would be to dine with such amazing designers. CHA is always a time for our team to brainstorm and plan for the upcoming months and year. I would love to spend some time hearing your thoughts and ideas for our store; as well as, maketing your product.

This contest is such a fun idea! I love the layout give-a-way idea!

Memories for the Making said...

Wow! A Free Lunch with the Cosmo Gang, That sounds like a FUN time. I just want to thank you for always coming out with some cool new lines. Mr. Campy was a huge success for my Minnesota Customers. They loved it. I cant wait to see the new product you have come out with this year at CHA. I would love to have dinner with you and your crew and rack your brains. Thanks for the opportunity. P.S. I love the Take Project. Thanks for thinking about us smaller stores. There is never enough time to get everything done when you get back. I will see you on Sunday!

Brenda said...

I would love to have dinner with this group. I am so sure I could pick your brain and learn so many new ideas. I am also the party girl and when I arrive the party begins. Ask me what "nuf" is and the story behind it.
Please pick me for dinner.

bcre8uv said...

What a great contest idea! You are all so much fun. And Julie, your fashion sense is unparalleled (since we both had the same Anthro shirt in different colors last year). If I win, we should maybe clear our wardrobe choices with each other first. Unless you want to go as twinners - I'm okay with that, too. ;)

ScrappySusieQ said...

This is my first plane ride, my first CHA, my first time at Disney, but NONE of that would hold a candle to dinner with the "Cosmo Gang!" I "cherish" the thought that you will "find me" your winner. If I could be so "lucky" to get a chance to sneak note to Larry with that all important question... Where is the warehouse guy????

Cindy said...

Dinner with Cosmo would be awesome! Will Larry the temp be there to give sage advice from a spinner? Will the mole from the factory tell even more insider secrets? Or will Lindsay regale the group with scenes from his favorite Moonlighting episode? How could anyone *NOT* want to rub elbows with the cosmo crowd? I'll be there and would love this hot ticket (even if I'm not a 25-LO-a-day gal).

Memories Galore said...

Dinner with Cosmo Cricket... how curious, indeed! I'm willing to subject myself to refueling the old energy tank with you kind folks... under one condition: Lindsay must use a napkin and chew with his mouth closed! ;-P

I'd also graciuosly request that you give me a chance to get inside the brilliant creative minds of your designers after a few tequila shots (my treat, of course!).

How super cool would it be to have dinner with CC?! I'll be there this weekend and would love to dine with y'all!

Kelly said...

Top ten reasons you NEED to have dinner with me (and my Friend) Some with pictures lol

#10 We will entertain you with embarrasing stories, like expo 2 years ago when we ALMOST got kicked out of our hotel (at 2 AM)

#9 I've been known to make friends with balloons, which means I'm ultra friendly and super hysterical.

#8 We will butter you up and tell you how much everyone else's product sucks and yours is soo the best.

#7 We might wear bunny ears to dinner and the manager just MIGHT rip the table out from underneath us. http://www.flickr.com/photos/itssokristi/2274007246/in/set-72157603936092622/

#6 You will get to take pics with our animal of the day http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_uzRaJy_ShrU/SOzsK9hODWI/AAAAAAAAAb4/1csSpZyJm5I/s320/ry%253D403.jpg

#5 Even though I haven't made 25 lo's in a day...I have made 49 projects this year...and I deserve to be rewarded, right?

#4 You might end up in the comics...http://wannabeescrapper.blogspot.com/2007/04/ever-popularcomic-strip.html

#3 I'll entertain you with stories about chapstick http://wannabeescrapper.blogspot.com/2009/01/can-chapstick-kill-you.html


#2 We like funky cupcakes...and everyone who likes cupcakes is super cool. http://wannabeescrapper.blogspot.com/2007/10/cupcakes-galore.html

#1 Everyone likes us...even animals http://www.flickr.com/photos/itssokristi/2917958718/in/set-72157603936092622/


Either way, even if you so coldly reject us, we will stop by and say HI at CHA!!

Katie said...

This will be my very first CHA and I cannot wait! I think it would soooo fun to dine with you all! OMG! I think your layout idea if FABULOUS! I love how you're thinking of the business owners! Wow! Thanks for the chance to win! Either way, I guess I'll see you there! Katie

I would love to dine with you guys on the off chance I could be in one of your hilarious videos!!! pahahaah

Looking forward to seeing all the new yummy creations (especially the Snorkel and Ever After lines) in person!

Safe travels!!

Kim@Nossers said...

The free meal sounds great, but the 111 layouts sounds amazing!!!
I was lucky enough to attend an Erickson worshop in MN and take a class with Lindsey. I think it would be great to meet all the people that keep up with him on a daily basis!!! See you soon in CA!!! Can't wait to leave wisconsin.

Wendy said...

Pick Me Pick Me

(because I had to type this 3 times to get it to take!!)

a. why do I want to be picked? I need a night out!

b. Why do I want to go with you? Cause you guys are fun!

another_angel said...

Why do I want to go to dinner with the Cosmo Cricket crew? Oh, let me count the reasons (no really. I'm going to count them. Hope you have some free time!)

3. To save me from eating yet another dollar-menu cheeseburger, which will more than likely be my pathetic nutrition source during CHA, since new scrapping stuff ALWAYS trumps the diet.

2. Seeing as how I'm either surrounded by my (lovely, adorable) children, or locked behind my office door all day, it would be nice to enjoy some adult entertainment. NO NO, not THAT kind of adult entertainment, I meant just talking, and... oh never mind, let's just move on.

1. I won't have time to visit DisneyLand while in Anaheim, so I figure this group of characters would be a nice substitute! I don't suppose there would be any chance of getting Eric in a Goofy suit, would there??

Regardless, I look forward to seeing you guys, and all your fabulous yummy new products, at CHA!! I hope everyone has a very safe trip.
~Angel~

Cindy said...

SO excited to browse the booth and see all your fabulous creations! And dinner with the crew would be a blast!

liannallama said...

Hi! I won't be in the building 'cause I don't have a ticket, but I live close-by and I'd love to meet you for dinner if I'm the winner! You gals are so creative!

To dine with the Cosmo crew would be a blast. I would rearrange my CHA scedule to do so. LOL

Ya'll are a hoot and I can't think of a better crowd to hang out with for an evening. Plus, everytime we come to your booth you tell us how much you love us. So....Pick Me, Choose Me, Love Me.

I am coming to CHA with my best friend and silent (yeah, right) business partner - my dear husband. These are just three of the reasons why I think that you should invite us to dinner:

1. My husband will be impressed that we were invited by such major celebrities (he has seen your videos). He will think that I must be very important and totally cool. I like that.

2. He will finally get a chance to wear his Buffalo Bill tie - which will give Lindsay's cute shirt a run for it's money.

3. Business has been a little quieter lately and we could use a free meal.

Please choose us.

Greetings from the Great White North!! We LOVE Cosmo Cricket up in Northern Canada!! It would be great to share a meal with the Cosmo Crew, it has been a blast watching the blogs this past few weeks! Why do we think that you should choose us to "Dine" with?? Well...we are digging ourselves out of our igloos to get there to see YOU.....we have to fly on 3 separate planes just to get there....we have pretty pale skin too, not too much sun up here in the winter.....we LOVE Cosmo Cricket.....we don't get out much...I'm renovating my kitchen and leaving it in my husbands hands while I'm gone(is this smart?!?).....we live in a smallish mining town in Northern Manitoba where it's 500 miles south before we reach any civilization(not kidding!?!)....did I mention we don't get out much!!.....we're alot of fun.....we live in snow 8 months of the year, the other 4 months we clean up from the snow and get ready for the new snow(kidding)(any new snow theme paper coming??).....dinner in a real restaurant?(McD's is a biggie up here!)need I say more.....we're so excited to be coming down to California and the warm weather(we were at minus 54 degrees Celcius with the wind chill last week)(not kidding)......we would love to meet other people who are as addicted to the scrapbooking industry as we are, and we believe that you folks would fit the bill!!! Jan and Lillian - we're your dinner table partners!!! P.S. We don't eat much!!!!!
