PooPeD!

Not only am I pooped from working all weekend, I'm pooped from shopping all weekend, too! I just figured out how much I've spent at The Scrapbook Zone since I started working there & well, let's just say that my whole first paycheck plus more is GONE! Yep, it all went to the Zone :) And most of it I spent in 3 days during the 5th anniversary/birthday sale! Here's some pictures of just some of the stuff I bought this weekend:
On Friday, I didn't get much time to shop, but I did manage to buy a little bit of stuff.....some Hambly rub-ons, which were on sale for 30% off, 2 chipboard composition books & lots & LOTS of Bazzill cardstock since it was on sale 5 for $1.00.

On Saturday, I bought some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye, Basic Grey & Creative Imaginations along with some CI embellishments, rhinestones from Doodlebug, Queen & Co Felt Borders (just had to get more of those), new MM glitter chipboard flowers, Junkitz felt flowers & chipboard from their Salsa line, a Cosmo Cricket Lacing Card Kit & a few other things not pictured.....a American Crafts leather album for Cassie's Europe layouts along with extra page protectors & a set of the MM wall text alphabets that were on clearance for $11.99. Let's just say that I managed to spend enough to get my free AMM Tote-ally Cool Tote ;) All the purple ones were already gone, so I ended up getting pink instead.

On Sunday, I managed to spend some more.....got some glue dots since they were on sale, a AMM shoulder bag for when I go to the Mega Meet this week, another AC leather album, this one in black, some clips for my Clip It Up & some more CI paper.

Here is the first layout I did for Cassie's Europe album (click on image for better view). As you can see, I just had to add a little bit of Primas to it :) I think I'm going to use all of the older Basic Grey papers (Motifica & Sublime) for this album as the colors just seem to go perfectly with her pictures.

I'm off work today, so I'm just going to relax & do some things around the house while Cassie's in school & then I told her I'd take her to the mall tonight since she was stuck at home most of the weekend. Jim did take her out to dinner last night, so she enjoyed that. I work tomorrow & on Wednesday, Cassie gets an award from the Sheriff.....very long story, but I'll just say that I'm VERY proud of her for what she did! Maybe I'll post about it on Wednesday after she receives her award. Then on Thursday, I'm going to the Mega Meet with Cindy......WOOO-HOOO! I can't wait!!! There goes this week's paycheck already ;)

Have a great Monday,

Benita
