Finally, New Paper!

I just got back from 3 days in Disneyland with my BFF and this is what awaited me. A whole pile of new toys! None of it is Halloween though, and I'm still on the Halloween kick, so I'm going to get back to colouring a zombie scene.

2012 Ontario Scrapbook Expo

 The last Scrapbook Expo of the year was on Saturday in Ontario, CA and I was so excited for it because the fall ones are my favourite. The summer CHA stuff is out and that's usually the best for me because I love all the Halloween, Fall, and Christmas stuff. I was also shopping for my Secret Santa, so her stuff is mixed in here as well (the embossing folders, two of the 6x6 pads, and four of the packages of Prima). I got a great deal on those 6x6 pads, and that's all the Christmas I ended up buying, but I did pick up a bunch of the Pink Paislee Phantom line from last year as my 6x6 pad is almost gone. I love that paper and the mix of colour.

Halloween Goodies

The good thing about travelling is that you get to visit new scrap stores. I asked on 2Peas where we should go in Phoenix and they came back with a store called Scrapbooks Etc. The best thing about this store? It's a duel scrapbook and quilting store!!!! I HAD to go!
 First I hit up the fabric area and picked up these. The two layer cakes in the back are great because, really, there's no cutting required. I can just take those blocks, sew them together, give them a border, and that's quilt done! The littler packs will require just a bit more work, but it's still simple. Plus, with all that Halloween loveliness, I don't really care how long it takes!
 Then I went through all the scrapbook goodness they had there. I picked up some older papers, some new papers, some clearance stuff, just a mix of everything. I'm super happy with that trip!
The next day we did a bit of shopping, some eating, and I hit up Michael's. They had all their Halloween stuff on 60% off, so I got a few more things to decorate with. I got those neat new boxes to put stuff in on my desk, LOVE it! I got a stamp set, some stuff to make my own wreaths with, a few glass jars, some ribbon and embellishments, and a few ornaments.
