Tuesday night was our final night of bowling for our one mixed league & boy, am I glad it's over! I was surprised that we came home with $200 per person, though. But I turned around & spent that (and then some) today.....more on that below. Above are the awards that Jim & I won on this league.....his 700 series leather coaster......yippee (said in my best sarcastic voice)! When the ABC & WIBC decided to combine into one & become the USBC, they sure went downhill on their award program! If you bowl in any sanctioned leagues, you'll know what I mean. The patches are for our high averages.....Jim finished with a 204 average & I ended up with a 174 average & we both had the highest averages on the league. First time that has ever happened :) The keychain in the middle is for my 213 game, the pin below that is also for my 213 from the Detroit WBA, then I also got a keychain for Most Improved Average.....I wasn't even counting on getting that award, but I won't complain :) Then Jim got a pin for League High Series with his 715 series. The league itself was okay, but I just hated the drive.....40 minutes one way! Heck, if I'm gonna drive that far, I'll go to The Scrapbook Zone, which is exactly what I did today :)
The Scrapbook Zone in Farmington Hills was having their 4th birthday celebration today & also a HUGE sale! All cardstock was 5 for $1.00.....can't beat that! Rub-ons, clear stamps & stickers were 25% off, so I stocked up. In this photo (click on all pictures to see them larger) are the embellishments that I purchased.....the new Bazzill Wings Flowers (so pretty!), Queen & Co Fab Flowers, Tim Holtz new Distress Ink colors, Heidi Swapp Lemonade Stand ghost alphabets, Gin X alphabet rub-ons, Primas (I'm now up to 102 bottles :), Karen Foster Snap-Stamps (I've been wanting these for a while now), some plum colored frames that I may or may not alter.....they actually match my living room perfectly they way they are & finally my Mini Fasternater, which I got for free for spending $100.00.
Since the clear stamps were all on sale, I decided to buy a couple of sets of the Technique Tuesday stamp sets.....I got Back Rounds, Petal Pushers & Infinite Wisdom, which are the stamps of the month at the Zone. Then I couldn't pass up the rub-ons :) I bought 2 more sets of the American Crafts alphabet rub-ons, some of the new Chatterbox Grafik rub-ons & some other miscellaneous ones along with some Li'l Davis Designs Chipboard embellishments.
Pattern Paper was also 25% off today, so I bought a little bit of that. Probably would have purchased more if I wasn't already overwhelmed with pattern paper as it is. I got some of the new Daisy D's line, K&Company & KI Memories. Luckily, I didn't actually have any of these ones yet.....that's usually what happens to me. I buy paper & then bring it home only to find out that I already have it! Why do I do that???
Then it was on to the cardstock. 72 sheets later & here is what I bought. I just love the new Bazzill with the scallop edges. I wasn't sure what colors I even needed, so as you can tell, I got mainly purple since it's my favorite color. I had so much fun shopping today & getting to finally meet Kelley & Kevin, the owners of the Zone. Truly awesome people! If you've never been to The Scrapbook Zone before, I highly recommend it. It's definitely the BEST scrapbook store in all of Michigan!
Now, an update on the Jeep. What started out as a $6,200 estimate has now gone up to almost $8,900! It will still be several weeks before it's done getting repaired, so we probably won't have it back until the end of May. But I thank God everyday that Jim wasn't hurt! The Jeep is replaceable......he's not!
It's been a long day, so I'm off to bed. Till next time,
