Look what I found!!

“Sometimes you've got to let everything go - purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out."~~Tina Turner

I was at the Goodwill store last week looking for a couple of things and I came across this hurricane candle holder. I immediately thought of all my scrap pieces of ribbon that I have in a basket. This would be perfect with all of it's holes, don't ya think?

Then I was at Michael's and had two gift cards that needed to burn. =] I bought a set of Fluid Chalks, but then kept going back to this paper set. It kept calling my name. I picked it up. Looked at it. Looked at the coordinating items in the set...*sigh*. I did have enough to get it...hmmm.... No, I don't really NEED that paper do I? I just like it because it's all whimsy and fun....ugh. I can't resist. Rush back to the end aisle where it was on sale and then - for the first time - remember I have a coupon in my wallet too. Oh, good. Get both packs. Yea! No tough decisions to make today. Just pure, yummy, paper-lovin' fun! =] They are by Colorbok and are from their Friendly Forest line! The first pack came in a sturdy zippered package and includes punch outs, foiled papers, patterened and solid papers, divider tabs, etc. The second pack has 8 shaped specialty papers. it!

The second pack:

Can you blame me?

That is really cute paper. I try to avoid the Michaels because of cute stuff like that. You'll create something FAB out of it!

That hurricane has "scrap room" written all over it! What a find! And who can resist new paper packs? I am a sucker for coordinates all in a bag with the embellishments too. Can. Not. Resist. HaHa!

Now you're making me want to go back and get that paper. I've eyed that paper every time I've gone into Michael's too.
