I Met Ali!

While working last night at The Scrapbook Zone, Ali Edwards came in to do a book signing & photos since she's in town for CKU this week. What a sweet person she is, too! So friendly & outgoing & truly inspirational! She brought in an album that she was doing at CKU & it was so amazing!
The store was pretty busy last night as we were having an awesome sale.....20% off almost everything in the store for EVERYONE.....not just CKU students. The sale continues until Saturday, so if you're in the area, be sure to stop by & take advantage of the sale.
Have I mentioned lately how much I love my job? ;) I've only worked 3 days so far & I'm having so much fun! Kelley & Kevin are the BEST employers to work for! Kevin joked around last night & said that the only reason I'm working there is for the discount, lol. And yeah, the discount is nice, but I'd work there even if I didn't get a discount. And I'd shop there without it, too because I just love the Zone! I ended up spending another $62 last night there ;)
I forgot to take my Ali Edwards Designer's Eye for Scrapbooking with Patterned Paper book with me last night, but luckily, the Zone had her first book for sale, too so I decided to buy one of those so I could get Ali's autograph. When she started signing it, I said to her "hey, you spelled my name right" :) She mentioned it was because she saw my name tag. LOL Dummy me forgot all about having my name tag on. Jim definitely would have given me a DeDeDe moment for that one ;)
Off to get a shower & get ready for Day 4 at the Zone :)
