051213 An Embarassment of Riches

Whew! A wonderful, whirlwind week :~)

First lovely surprise? Happy mail from Canada!
Sherrie sent me this wonderful assortment of the journaling/accent cards she crafts for her scrapbook pages!

That's her with the fella in the bright blue shirt towards the left on the bottom...

Next delightful treat? A super-special scrap guest - Lynnette! All the way from Jersey!
We were scrapping in our pjs the day after shopping until we dropped at the Novi Michigan MegaMeet!
And she brought me this wonderful mascot for my happy scrappy place...
She knows me so well <3

On to the MegaMeet loot!
Let's take a closer look, shall we?

New & vintage from Jenny Bowlin
 The feather paper on the left is tone on tone on the B side, and aren't those cards the yummiest color scheme? Always fun to shop there as Jenny is usually manning the booth in between classes!

New tin pins from Darcie's
 I think those flair are whimsy done well. And they have a ton of great product - check them out!

And I LOVE the products from Pretty Little Studio!

These vocabulary cards were just one of the many truly vintage things they had. 
And they have a kit club with many fun things like 45 records included!

Words & alphas! Like I need ANY more, lol! The s-e-i are corrugated single layer cardboard.
 Assorted goodies :~)

Remember Creative Imaginations? Well it seems they may have reinvented themselves as Splash of Color!
 These were hot off the presses - we were told it was the first time they had been offered. $.99 each

Farm House Paper Company  Really nice quality.

 Want 2 Scrap Oh, my - SO many wonderful things! Wish I'd bought more...
 (The washi isn't theirs, btw..)

Next stop? ARCHIVERS! Coupons from the show scored 5 free pieces of cardstocks & $10 off!
I bought the paper trays in hopes of keeping my faves at hand...we shall see if it works.

Ended the week by celebrating Mother's Day. Quite a week!


  1. Wowsers, that is quite the haul. And you know the most amazing thing about it? I love every bit you chose much, I realized if I am ever house bound and bed ridden, I can trust you to do a scrap stash run for me.

    I can already imagine the Pretty Little Studio birthday cards showing up on the little ones' birthday pages.

    Thanks for the plug. And the idea for a name for the journal cards, formerly known as counterfeit Project Life cards. Breezy Badges; rolls off the tongue so much better.

  2. your pressy is beautiful, so thoughtful. And you have got one mega new stash pile there.

  3. What a week indeed! All that wonderful stash! A truly amazing haul! And the Breezy Badges? Wow! They are amazing - much like the adorable Sherrie in fact! Lucky you!
    but the best two bits of your post are 1. seeing the WM prompt there on your board (blush!) and 2. your time with Lynette. How wonderful to have the opportunity to connect in "real"! I'm so envious of you. Pam and I vow to get together one day, but the journey is quite far (understatement) and I don't know how we'll manage it. I am so happy for the two of you. :-)

  4. be back in your space! What a fun adventure we had! So wonderful to meet you in person and spend time scrapping and shopping together. Just perfect...sigh :)


Would love to know you've been here! Feedback most welcome
