I'm here... 44

Mona Pendleton | Friday, May 20, 2011 @ 1:24 AM | , ,

Hi there! I'm here to share a few pics as promised from my crafty weekend while at the Color Connection creative tour sponsored by 3 of my fave paper crafting companies: Pink Paislee, Prima and Tattered Angels.
 My sweet hubby, Scott and I made the 5 hour drive from Phoenix, AZ to Riverside, CA. The event is being held at the gorgeous Mission Inn Hotel & Spa. Upon arrival, we checked in and dropped our luggage off in our room then headed to the check-in area for the event. I was greeted by a group of sweet & friendly ladies: Rebecca Cross - Pink Paislee, Sharon Lakkonen - Prima Marketing,
Marion Smith - Prima Marketing and Wendy Senger - Tattered Angels who all welcomed me with open arms, a swag bag full of awesome products and the opportunity to create my custom name badge using some amazing products from Pink Paislee, Prima and Tattered Angels.
Here's what I came up with:
 Here are a few pics of the hotel:
 Stunning architecture:
 Here's a view of a beautiful courtyard:
 Check out the gorgeous stain glass window:
 A stunning view of the Rotunda from the 4th floor:
 The beautiful Hotel entrance:
Hope you enjoyed the photos! Off to rest up for my big crafty day tomorrow :) Can't wait to play!
Thanks for visiting - Be Sweet :)
