Fun Day

What a fun day I had today. I went to Attleboro to meet up with my friend Neith, her son and twin daughters. Neith is off to the Club Scrap retreat and I had some stuff to give and return to her before she left for her fun weekend of scrapping and classes. We had lunch at the Emerald Square Mall and then made a quick trip to Michaels (craft store) – don’t worry I was very good used a coupon to get some clear UTEE which I needed and some findings to make some necklaces for a friend of my mums. It was great to see her and the kids and hang out for a bit.

I also stopped at the LSS (Local Scrap Store) in Attleboro. Believe it or not it is the closest one to me, close being relevant since it is about a 30 min. drive. I had recently found out that one of the ladies on one of my forums works there so I stopped to see if she was in so that I could meet her. Yay – she was there. It as great to put a face to someone who you chat with online. Of course I had to browse around the store but as hard as it was I was very very good. Only treated myself to a few sheets of Bazzill cardstock, couple alpha stickers and some rub-ons, and a chipboard alphabet. Trust me I could have bought one of everything that I saw – LOL. I also realized that they sell a bunch of idea books but they did not have the one I was looking for “52 Scrapbooking Challenges” by Elise Flanningan in stock but they are on order so one will be held for me. The exciting news is that Elise will be at the store next week to do a couple classes and to sign her book. So I hope that it comes in before next Wednesday so I can get my copy signed. Yes I am becoming a scrapbooking celebrity groupie and I am proud of it – LOL.

Oh and on a not so fun note I did not make it into the top 25 of the contest boo hoo. Oh well, I still love my layout and I will just keep trying other contests if the mood hits me. After all I scrapbook for me, the contests, challenges etc. are just all added bonus.
