free stuff and a purchase thanks to the Refupeas...ya enablers...

 A couple of weeks ago, on our local buy and sell...a friend of my dd and ddil put up some scrapbook stuff...thinking $20 each for the paper rolling rack and for the stack of inks and stamps..this is CTMH...so I responded immediately.  AND because of the family connection, she gave them to me! (I offered to pay at least some, cuz I know the value of these) (but she refused)

 She says her mom used to be a CTMH rep but her husband works for one of the online photo processers...so she now does all her scrapbooking online and just has no need for these things.  I told her if she ever gets the urge to create again, she knows where to come and visit.

I have not had the chance to go through the papers...but first glance tells me it is very organized.  She has 2 boys, so I am hoping lots of good boy papers...




Wow!  what treasures...now gotta find their new homes.

This was a purchase from the closing sale by a fellow Refupea...A Walk Down Memory Lane...

 And there was a thread about storing 6x6 pads. So I bought one of the refrigerator organizers mentioned.    Previously I had these stacked...but I do like this better.
 And dh's father's day card made from the new stamps...I just blocked off the face of the rocket.  Used alcohol inks, stickles and washi tape.  Warning, if you stamp over alcohol ink (as I did for the rocket) WAIT to start cutting it out...the ink will smear.

So, not much time for actual scrapping the past two weeks.  I was on a bit of a spending freeze...think it lasted 2 weeks...siiiiigh, but the floodgates opened...and am in the process of organizing those purchases.  Darn that Scrapbook.com...ha!!!
