Blog Candy and Projects!

Hello all! I hope you are all doing well! I did a lot of fun stuff this weekend and seriously, I couldn't be happier! Life is great right now. My husband took my to Joann's and Michael's this weekend (once again yay! for amazing husband!) and I bought some amazing things! I got Michael's acrylic paints for $.29 each!!!! Then at Joann's I got 3 stackers, page refills, and thread for my sewing machine for only $15!!! Check out the stackers!



Then if that weren't enough, our Border's store is closing (unfortunately) and they are selling everything!!! Fixtures, books, magazines etc. for very very low prices. Well, my husband found a box full of Papayrus Envelopes (1000+) and all lined and shimmery or designed and gorgeous. The box said (handwritten) 10 for $2 (which is still a great deal), but we got the box and asked the employee.. "How much for the entire box?" and he said... "$5! Take it!" and we did! I sooooooo SCORED!!!



I also had a very productive weekend. I was able to finish the first album of 2 of our Mexico City trip! Here were two of the layouts I made! (The green one if you look closely the circle is sewn with tulips on my sewing machine!)








I follow a lot of blogs! I've met some of the most amazing woman through these blogs. And they make my day so happy by being able to see all their wonderful creations! Not only do they share their work, but they are even willing to give away some goodies just for seeing their work. Check these blogs out and become a follower. You won't regret it!

Denise (Lala's World) is giving away this awesome package of goodies just for becoming a follower and leaving a comment on the give-away post. (Please go to her blog to review requirements)


Then we also have Ilene over at (What a bunch of scrap!) her blog giving away another package of goodies! Just have to follow her amazing blog as well and leave a comment! (Please go to her blog to review requirements)



Thank you for stopping by! I hope you all had a magnificent weekend! I can't wait for Saturday! That's when we leave to Southern California to go on our Cruise on Sunday! Wooo Hooo!

Happy Scrapping!

I saw your comment on "Everyday Cricut" and decided to follow your blog too. I love your crafting table, it is so organized and well supplied. I built my own table and am working on supply areas. You wrote about precise measurement. I too try to do that on my own blog, check it out and thank you in advance for doing so.
