Woohoo! Awesome Goodies!

Well, I think we all already know that I am a goodie and bargain junkie! On Sunday, my husband and I went to my sister-in-law's house (my husband's sister) to pick up our girls. They had a girls night out with their Aunt and had spent the night. They had so much fun! Anyway, before we went to get them, I convinced my husband that we should stop at a scrapbook store in the area that was going out of business. Everything was 75% off. I'm very happy that I stopped by, because look at what I got!


This is everything just reclining and relaxing on my big chair and ottoman! Hello goodies! You can click on the photos to get a better view.

I got some Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl papers and die cuts, Autumn Leaves stamps, chipboard pieces, Maya Road month/day sheers, small Maya Road stamps, a border acrylic block, fantastic ribbon, etc.

You can see more ribbon and wonderful Heidi Swapp black and white papers! Yummy!

I got a bunch of the Teresa Collins journal-it sheets. FUN! I also got some Basic Grey Cupcake papers and some Cosmo Cricket Hello Sunshine papers! Above the journal-it sheets is an awesome package of chipboard pieces.

I got a couple of western sheets and the cutest western stickers. I also got some Noteworthy papers by Making Memories and a couple of Creative Imagination papers.

In the center of this photo, you can see some die cut Creative Imagination sheets. They're so pretty and fun with the awesome borders! I also got some rain dot flower packs.

Now, I got all of this for just less than $40!! It was all 75% off!! I actually showed a lot of restraint! I wanted to buy everything with it being 75% off! The best part about this was that my husband patiently waited outside for me to finish up shopping. He's awesome! I had a blast bargain shopping. Now, I'm not supposed to be spending, but when you come across a bargain like this, how can you refuse?

I'm totally behind on blog hopping, and I have a feeling it's going to be that way the entire summer. However, I will try to catch up with all of you soon! As always, thanks for stopping by!

Luuuuucky! I had a similar experience when I visited an out-of-the-way kinda run-down Joanns. They had a ton of scrap stuff on clearance - 75% off too! My DH told me to go nuts & I spent about $80. Way to go! I just posted pics of my recent CKC score on my blog as well, make sure to check it out.
