A break through and some goodies!

If you have seen my scrapbook room, you might just notice the massive amount of paper I have. You need cardstock right? And I don't want to run out, so....I have a lot of that. And patterned paper is so pretty! And it comes and gos so quickly that I feel the need to own it now before they discontinue it. I have stacks of single sheets of patterned paper and about 25 different stacks from companies from Basic Grey to Sassafrass Lass. Sigh. I am in paper heaven. I knew Michaels was getting in some new things so I decided to pop in there on Saturday when Billy took the kids to the pet store (they are right by each other after all!). And there it was! Paper that made me gasp. Pretty paper that I have no idea what I will do with it, but it is so beautiful I had to buy it. By the time I got the discount on it, it only cost me $10 and change, so the price was great. But how to sneak it past Billy...LOL To my surprise, I showed him the paper when we met at the van and HE LOVED IT! Called it art and said we should frame some of it!!! Seriously doing the happy dance about that! No guilt trips. No "how much paper do you need" speech. For one brief moment we were one about my paper addiction. Sigh. Doesn't get any better than that. Want a peek at the bonding paper? I'm warning you...it's too pretty to pass up.
I found this great MM package of baby embellishments on clearance there, too. Love all of the different pieces and it doesn't have to be just for baby items.
They had some new Studio G stamps, too. I am trying to cut down on my addiction to those and use what I have, but come on. This bunny was begging to come home with me.
I have been seeing alot of cool paper flowers and embellishments made out of book pages. I love my books and have no intention of ripping them up, even for the sake of art, so I made a quick trip to Goodwill to see what I could find. I managed to find a thesaurus and one of my favorite books, Turn of the Screw. I can't wait to rip them apart. I found some cotton twine, too. Good deals!
