I've got a Sugar Rush!

So, since kit clubs are a bit out of my budget at the moment, my friend Queen Pam (who works at a lovely scrapbook store called Journals of the Heart offered to be my personal shopper and put together a kit for me whenever I felt the urge to have one. I can set my own budget that way. How cool is that? So....she suggested my first kit be Basic Grey's Sugar Rush. Have you seen it? Wow! Great colors and perfect for this time of year. Plus, who wouldn't love paper called gummy bears? Not only did I get the paper, but I got the coordinating: stickers, chipboard, fabric tags, buttons, brads, glazed brads, journaling papers and clips. PLUS she threw in dew drops, Kaiser rhinestones and Paper Bliss Chipboard Owls. Isn't she sweet? I got her discount, so it was a fantastic deal for me! Love that!
Ready to see?

How about this haul, huh? She did a wonderful job of picking things out. It helps that she is my scrappy twin and knows exactly what I like and what my style is. LOL If you are in South Dakota, look up the store. I've seen pictures and it looks really great! And the owner has fantastic taste in both product and employees. :) And no, Pam is all mine. Get your own shopper. LOL

I *heart* me some sock monkey

I love sock monkeys. I don't care if they are "in" or not, but they are cute, cuddley and nostolgic. So...imgagine how happy I was when I strolled into Michaels and saw this!!

Imagine my surprise! I generally skip over the single sheet papers at Michaels because it was all old and stale and not my style. My daughter thought I lost my ever lovin' mind. I plopped my self on the floor and started scanning to see what else new they had and found these:

And if that were not enough...I spied with my little eye the new K and Company Valentines Stack. And it was on sale (said in hushed, reverent tones) and it was the last one (in a high, squeaky, panicked voice). I saved it.
Every pages is prettier than the last...and it is double sided. Grrr...which side do I use? And check out those valentines. Cute on a page or for my kids to pass out. (or for me to keep and put up in my room...)
Hopefully my next post will be all about the lovely box of goodies that are one their way from my scrappy friend, Pam.
