And the shopping continues...

Does it EVER end? I know I can't be the only one. Do you ever feel like you buy these few things and then you think to yourself "I'm good with things for now...I don't need to buy anything else" and then you go to M's or see the HL ad or get a sneek peek of some upcoming products and the cycle just starts all over again?? Yeah, me neither! LOL :) Well, I spent the night at my sis' house this past weekend. She picked me up on Friday and stayed the night and stayed the better part of Saturday because Miguel was helping at the church selling and delivering bbq plates. Anyway, so we did some shopping on Saturday. We went to M's by Ingram and I bought this new Carolyn Gavin 8x8 pad that I hadn't seen before when I got all my new CG stuff for Mother's Day at the M's off 1604. It's an 8x8 pad of punch outs...flowers...birds..LOVE the birds...viney looking things...it's GORGEOUS. It was $9.99 and I got it with a 40% off coupon. It has 24 sheets, 3 of each pattern. So at 40%, that is a GOOOD deal! Seriously, go look for it...NOW!! You will just fall in love with it and buy it and look at it all day! LOL I also got these rolls of felt border ribbons my sis had told me she had seen way back when I wasn't shopping, but when I could shop, I just couldn't find them anymore..go figure. But they had some, so I got four different colors. Also got a pack of those CG diecuts that we are going to use as prizes for that challenge me and my sis are hosting over on sb.com. I can't remember if I mentioned it here yet. So, I'm going to get the link for it and post it here in case anyone wants to play. US residents only. It's going to a month long thing and it should be TONS fun if we can get at least 7 more players. We also went by a different M's...Northwoods, after her dh got home and I found some of that MM Sabrina line stuff on clearance so I got some of that for prizes too. Along with some cool stuff we found in their $1 bins and a pack of MM Travel line packaging tape that was clearanced for a dollar! We also went by Scrapbook 911, but there wasn't too much I wanted. Well, not true...they had a TON of new DB glittered stuff that I just wanted to buy one of everything of, but knew I couldn't, so I narrowed it down to the "GOTTA have its" and only spent $9 and some change. And I didn't actually spend anything. Mimi let me use my $10 store credit..thank, Mimi :) Also got the new issue of Memory Makers..going to look at it later today. That was about it. I did alot of my cleaning today. So my week as of now is pretty free. So maybe I'll get some more scrapping done this coming week with all my new goodies. Here are some pics to share :)

I know this only too well! I had to run into JoAnn's because I was out of adhesive - but did I come out with just adhesive??? Of course not! I bought the DCWV Green Stack, 2 packages of clear stamps (flourishes and little "inchie" designs), some chipboard buttons, brads, bubble alphabet stickers. Aye yi yi!

You got some great stuff! I'm loving the birds & owls (one of the main reasons I picked up the Green Stack)

You didn't buy that Prima stamp. You begged me for that one...LOL...This weekend was fun. We should do it again over the summer. Mikey wasn't that bad and maybe he'll get used to it the more he stays over:)

I love the owls! The M's up here doesn't have some of the things you found.
