Lotsa Stuff!!

I've got lotsa stuff to share today!! If you know me at all, you know I NEVER run out of things to talk about!! Hahaha!! And today is no different!!

I mentioned this a couple of posts ago, but last Saturday was the grand opening of a new scrapbook store in town and of course, you KNOW I was there!! Did I mention that it is located a stone's throw away from the library, where I work!! How convenient is THAT?? My lunch breaks are going to be a lot more fun now!!! My husband doesn't think so......bwahahahahaaaaa!! Anyway, I went in there on Tuesday afternoon (to see if there was anything I may have missed on Saturday *wink*) and when I walked in, not only did the owner remember my name, but she told me that I had won a door prize from the day of the grand opening!! I won a 6x6 All My Memories album which is totally gorgeous AND it is PINK AND BROWN!!! Perfect for moi!! Wanna see??

Today I had the day off from work and Emileigh is off on March Break, so we went to London shopping and then I took her to meet with my Mom and she is staying with Nana and Grandpa for a couple of days!! (HI EMMY!!! I MISS YOU!!!) Well, some of you may have seen the latest $1.50 stamps at Michael's. I keep seeing them online because other people have been lucky enough to find them before they are sold out but I haven't been one of those people!! I have stopped in at Michael's a couple of times and they didn't know what I was talking about (obviously they are not 'in the know' hahah!). So today, since we were in London, I decided to stop in and check again just in case. Of course, I didn't see them anywhere and was ready to leave again when I thought, it wouldn't hurt to ask someone. So I asked a girl in that section and she hadn't heard of them but said she would call another girl! And would you believe that they just got a box and the girl was going to bring them right out for me!!!??? Woohoo!!!

Well the box was only tiny, because the stamps are unmounted clear acrylic stamps, so the are thin and not bulky in size because there is no wood. So they handed me the box and said, go to it. There were only about 5 or 6 of each set in the box, so I knew I had to get them or they'd be gone!! There were 16 different sets and I got all of them except the one that was for doing party invitations as I didn't think I'd use it (see, I have some self-restraint). Plus I got one of each of the two sizes of acrylic blocks and they were only $1.50 each too!!!! Here is a pic of my loot!!!! Total score!!

And now I can also show you a card that I made a couple of days ago!! It was my parents' anniversary and I made them a card but I couldn't show it to you all because my Mom checks my blog every day (at least I think she does) and I didn't want her to see it!!

I got some inspiration for this card from Jen del Muro on SCS here. But I changed it up a bit to suit my style and added a few of my own elements. I used the Doodle This set from the Spring Mini and coloured in the flowers with SU markers and cut them out. Then I layered them on the base and pop-dotted them, then doodled freehand around the edge (my personal touch). I also cuttlebugged the Elegant Eggplant base 'cause that is my favourite tool right now!! Hope ya like it!
