Mini Haul & Project.

I was happy I got out of the house today! Since yesterday the news wouldn't stop talking about the "snow storm" that was happening Wednesday night to Thursday morning that they canceled school for my husband and they closed down some school and delayed others, so we made plans to stay home and watch movies BUT when we got up this morning there was less than in inch of snow!!! lol I thought it was funny but oh well my husband got a day off. Since we didn't get much snow we decided to go out and get some tools that he needed.  First stop BIG LOTS! They didn't have much I only picket up a 2 double page BasicGrey kit: Sugar Rush.

Next stop was me dropping off my husband at Lowe's (boring! lol) and me going to Tuesday Morning. I really like this store cause they do have great scrap booking products. Sometimes.
I picket up a Making Memories 8x8 Portfolio Album, Cord Hemp and a 3 in 1 tool.

Last stop was T.J. Maxx! They didn't have much but I love paper and I found this DCWV paper Stack, K&Company Pink Flocked Die-Cut Card stock Stickers and clear stamp set.

OK now for the project I made last night. I Found the instructions on another blog which I will post her blog as soon I find it again. It was easy and I think it came out cute.

Paper Trimmer
CTMH Card Stock: Colonial White
CTMH Level 2 Paper Pack: That's Amore

My husband and I also went to a trift shop because he was looking for tools and I found these 6 1/2 x 3 3/4 envelopes. They didnt have a price so the lady was going to give me a pack but I told her I wanted 5 packs, so she said all for $2.00. Not bad!
