Weekend Wrap-up

Have you seen the new Making Memories papers at Michael's yet? Well, if you haven't, you need to & FAST! I read about them on 2 Peas this morning & since my dh had to run to another store today, I asked him if he would stop by M's to see if they had them yet (since our M's always seems to be one of the last ones to get new stuff). He came home with not one, but 2 of the paper packs :) The first one (above & below) has shaped, flocked & glitter paper in it, 8 designs & 3 sheets of each design.
The line is called Chelsea's Place & it's just gorgeous! I think I need to make a trip back to M's tomorrow to see the embellishments that go along with it. Jim told me that they had a lot of different ones, but he had no clue which ones I would want. The specialty paper pack costs $12.99.
Here's a picture of the plain paper pack which costs $9.99.
And here is just a glimpse of a layout I started using the papers already :)

On Friday, we went to Kalloway's for Jim's birthday & then came home & watched the movie Good Luck Chuck with Dane Cook in it.....it was truly hilarious! Lots of nudity in it, though. Afterwards, we decided to go to the movies as well & went to see The Bucket List. Really good movie & definitely a tear-jerker. Needless to say, I lost it towards the end. But it really gets you thinking about your life! I highly recommend seeing it.

Then on Saturday, Jim & Cassie wanted to go see Cloverfield, but I wasn't excited about seeing it, so while they were at the movies, I went to Archivers :) I must have walked around that store for almost 2 hours, just checking things out, seeing if there were any must-haves that I just had to bring home. But I honestly couldn't find much of anything that I wanted/needed. Okay, what's wrong with me??? I never go into a scrapbook store without spending at least $50.00 or more! Well, Archivers only got $22.00 out of me! $22.00!!! Either I have way too much stuff already, or nothing is appealing to me anymore. Or maybe I just need to make a trip to a 'real' scrapbook store like Scrappy Chic or the Zone :) It's been a while since I've gone to either of them, so I see a trip coming up in the very near future :)
On the way home from Archiver's, I decided to check out the new Super Walmart that just opened on Wednesday. I wanted to go there after bowling this past Wednesday, but since that was their Grand Opening day, I decided to wait. Wow, talk about a HUGE store! Right before we left Virginia to move to Michigan, they had just opened a Super Walmart a few blocks away from where we lived....I didn't want to move because of that, lol. The closest Super Walmart to us (before this one just opened) was in Lapeer, which is about 25 miles north of us, so the only time I got to go there was whenever we had to take one of our cars up for an oil change since our dealership is also in Lapeer. But now I'm in shopping heaven :) Just think....now I can go to this Walmart every Wednesday if I want after bowling since it's on the way home. Not too sure how much Jim will like that idea, though, lol. Sorry, but I'm not a Walmart hater.....in fact, I LOVE Walmart! Heck, I even used to work at one years ago & loved my job :)

Well, it's getting late & I'm getting tired. Got a kinda busy week ahead of me, but I hope to finish the above layout in the next day or two. When I do, I'll post a picture of it. Have a great week :)

Cool paper, I was at Michaels this weekend and didn't see it...oh well!

Had to laugh at your Archivers comment - about going to a REAL scrapbook store HA! What is Archivers?!? Can't believe you were there for 2 hours! I should have had you pick up my layouts hehehe

first off, you are such an ENABLER!

secondly, if you can't find anything at Archivers, then you already have TOO MUCH STUFF!!!!
Lol!!!!!

I won't go see Cloverfield because I keep hearing about hte whole vertigo thing. I get motion sickness pretty bad, and I don't want to be vomiting at the theater!! lol.

Thanks for the peek at the new papers. I will have to stop by M's after work tonight and check them out! I can always use more paper!!

Aren't those MM papers beautiful? I'm headed to Michael's tomorrow to look at them and see if I can't live without them. :) I consistently love Making Memories' things.

Are you not working/teaching at The Scrapbook Zone anymore? I thought you were. Have a good day!

Thanks for the heads up. I was in Michael's on Saturday and didn't see anything new. Went back this morning (thanks to your hot tip) and they had a WHOLE brand new display of MM stuff. Luckily, I had my 40% off coupon and got $4 off the paper! Woo Hoo........
