Great collage, great photos! Looks like you had a good time! That pizza looks yummy!


Glad to hear you are indeed inspired.
Great pics. Capri is such a cutie. And I can't wait to see what you have in store next ;o)
Love Kel XXX


great pics - i love the font on the collage - what is it? looks like capri is very happy and laid back!!


Sounds like you had a wonderful time! Capri looks so adorable "wrapped" up. I love your collage ~ that's next on my list to learn... I have to admit, the pizza looks absolutely yummy ~ and YES, I am hungry!

Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeves! As always, it'll be fantastic!


Sounds like an amazing time, Heidi! So glad you were able to get away and find the inspiration you were looking for. Can't wait to see what awesome new products/ideas you churn out next! You are AMAZING! (And ya know, you LOOK amazing, too! No one would ever know that you just had a baby. And she is an absolute doll!) Blessings to you!


I think the only thing missing in those photos is ME! {wink} Thanks for sharing...and for Photoshopping. =)


So are their roses in our future ? Love the collage, tried it for the first time a few weeks ago myself.


Looks like you had such a fun trip!!! Love the photo collage (a great, easy way to share all those photos!) and I love little Capri in her sling!


it is such a wonderful feeling to be totally inspired! you do that for sooo many-thank you! can't wait for your "big picture!"

oh heidi, when i heard you talk about these trips during your scrapetc class in birmingham i thought they sounded fantastic. but now, with photos, gah! even more than fantastic. i think i need to remember to give myself some inspiration trips -- even if it's just a half hour in a new store in town. thanks for sharing.

Hi Heidi -- I know exactly what you mean about hitting the creative wall...when that happens to me while scrapbooking I usually walk away and come back to it later...usually that works...or I look to you and your pages for that dose of inspiration!! :o) Everyone looks to you for inspiration and that must be a heavy load to carry--but we appreciate you for blazing that trail!! Glad you had such an awesome trip -- I won't hold it against you that you liked Carmel better than Santa Barbara!! tee hee..Keep up the good work....Cathy

Looks like a wonderful adventure! Can't wait to see what's in store!

PS. Could you tell me who makes the Metrowrap....it looks sooo comfy, and would love to try it out! TIA!


Love the sharing that you do with all of us. Can anyone please tell me what version of photoshop will allow me to do a collage? Inspired, but not sure where to turn to/ Have the basic version, obviously need to upgrade. Thanks for the help.


check out that awesome wrap! Looks like fun!


Love this collage, and that baby is just adorable!


It looks like you enjoy using the Metro Wrap, and Capri looks so snug and safe. Do you prefer that over a Baby Bjorn type carrier?


Looks like you had a great trip! Can't wait to see what inspiration you will share with everyone!


i love that you can recognize what inspires you...i have to admit, i do the same thing. i live near to seattle, so if i am feeling blah (whether its physically, emotionally or creatively...)i take a little trip to a few different districts and just let inspiration abound. i am sure you gals had a fabulous time. those pictures are so wonderful, such sweet happy smiles. can't wait to see whats new. you never disappoint!



Heidi! I used to live just east of Laguna Beach in SoCal!!! One thing I did on a regular basis was drive the PCH and clear my head! There is nothing more cleansing and inspiring than the beaches and the ocean breezes you get out there!!! I love all your products! They are very inspiring! Thanks for sharing where you get some of your mojo! You can certainly feel it in your product lines! Anyway.....I actully scrapped this weekend and thought I would share since you probably passed through Santa Monica where these photos were taken! Keep the great products coming!!! ~Shanna http://www.mynextthirtyyears.com/

What a fun trip...I think all women need to do this kind of trip with girlfriends...just for a refresher in life.

love the photos


what awesome pictures!! i can't wait to see what you have in store...capri looks so cute in your wrap!!


Fantastic photo collage--love all the flowers in bloom and you look great wrapped up with Capri. Count your blessings for a supportive husband...mine doesn't like it when I go away, esp. if I spend money. One CKU I ate canned spam and crackers to save money. Yuck, have you ever tried that stuff? You have the best job in the world and so does Em and Liz. Can't wait to see what you've come up with for new products! From all of us scrappers, Thank You for taking the trip.


Heidi, I went straight to the photo and just by looking at the pics I KNEW where you were! HA! That is how much I love that area....CARMEL.....Monterey.........ahhhhhhhhhh the life!!
Glad your trip was GREAT!

love your photo collage!! you did a great job!! And don't be scared by Photoshop. It's such a wonderful tool and once you get used to it you will find yourself wanting to do more and more in it. And there are lots of good books out there and even a magazine with tips and tricks (I highly recommend books by Scott Kelby - he has a great one for Photographers - very helpful for getting your photos to look their best). I'm a digital scrapper and designer and can't imagine life without it! If you ever have any questions feel free to email me. And I sometimes post tutorials on my blog so if you have questions, I'm sure others would benefit from knowing the answers too. :-)

I can't wait to see your BPS class description!


what a wonderful collage. love all the color. great photos. welcome to janet. i know she will do fine with all the creative talent already existing. can't wait to see what is in store for us.
