Shopping Spree!

So you know I just recently visited family in Utah and one of my traditions is to go shopping with my sister-in-law, Ellen. This tradition started about 6 years ago when we moved to Tucson and at that time scrapbook shopping there was scarce. Of course, a Hobby Lobby when in right after we moved from there! Here in California finding a place to shop is not the problem. It's finding the time!


So here's what I bought this time:


I haven't bought new Embossing Folders in a loooooong while!
So I stocked up!
Aren't you glad so you won't see my few favorites that I use ALL the time!
Joann's has them on sale at 40% off!
Woohoo!
The spellbinders dies were on clearance for about $5




I always, well almost always, ok, never really,
but I try to limit myself to 5 new paper stacks when I go on a shopping spree.
Paper stacks on sale at 50% off, which is the ONLY time I by them!




And Here's the sixth!
It is just so sparkly and shiny that I just HAD to have it too!
Heeheehee!




And look what was on clearance at Hobby Lobby!
So what if I've never even used my Cricut Imagine! :)

I also bought with a coupon at Hobby Lobby a Copic Coloring Guide book!

It doesn't look like over 5 hours of shopping, does it?
But it is! Well, we did go out for lunch too!
