So Cal Shop Hop 2010

Today had so much fun running around with scrapbook buddies and hopping from one store to another spending $$$$$ of course. When you think you have it all, try visiting stores you have never been too or going to those that you haven't visited in awhile... Woosh.... head rush.

We laughed and laughed and ate, then laughed, and spent money and laughed some more. Only went to 5 stores, but by the look of the trunk of the car, it appeared that we had visited a whole lot more. First stop 1) Scrapbooking Made Simple, Santa Clarita, wonderful owner Stacey took so much time to teach us new techniques, and was so generous with freebies for us. Off to Craft Connection, also in Santa Clarita. Small but jammed with Tim Holtz 7 Gypsies and some cool 70's paper that will look great in my highschool layouts I'm getting ready to do. Then off to a HUUUUUGE store called Remember When in Valencia. A private crop is already in planning stages. Yes gang, it is definitely worth driving all the way to this store for a crop. Accu-cut center to die for, and product galore!!!!!

Then we headed towards home, and stopped off at Pages of the Heart and Scrap N Yap both in quaint Monrovia... had to spend what little cash we had left. Just love that I have scrapbook buddies to share this wonderful hobby with. Looking forward to more fun right around the corner...
