Here is the Stash

that I picked up at the swap meet. Now you have to admit....for someone who has only bought two ink pads in her life and received a few as gifts. This is a fantastic deal. I bought 8 ink pads, Disney scrapbook paper, and a couple packets of embellishments. All for only $40.00 :) Plus, I found someone who was selling old postcards. I remember people telling me that they are great to use in cards...so I bought 20 for $10.00. The hardest part was sneaking it all into my carry-on luggage. I had bought a goofy mug at Disneyland and the cashier packed it so it looked like a giant beehive. LOL

Sheldon said that I broke my strike....I like to think of it as part of my vacation. LOL I am planning on making all the kids that went with us to Disneyland a card and place inside a keychain I bought them. So of course...I needed Mickey papeer. Hopefully, I will be able to make that and post it within the next week.


PS....Let me know if you agree with Sheldon or I? :) (Say me...Please!)

Tell Sheldon you got one heck of a deal! Sometimes you need to spend money to save money- and you definitely would have paid over $100 retail for all that loot.
