Minneapolis here we come.

The morning started out Very early.
We were up just after 5:00 am, and left the house by 6:15 am.
And it was snowing.
It was snowing so much that you couldn't see the lines on the road. So I couldn't fall asleep at first. It was like this for about an hour and a half, then it cleared up.
But once I could see the road, I fell fast asleep. And slept off and on the whole 7 hours.
Our first stop......
The Pine City Scrapbooking Co.
See Kristy sitting in the jeep. Doesn't she look so happy while I was shopping inside the store ;)

I was lucky enough to have been there while they were having a stamp sale :)
I guess it was like a garage sale, as there were a lot of used stamps for sale.
All these wooden blocked stamps were from the sale, I could have grabbed a lot more :)
The La La Land stamp wasn't one of the ones on sale, I also picked up some distress clear stickles.

They had some of the new G45 Primer paper. They didn't have the paper packs, so I picked up the single sheets. I also grabbed some beautiful Lost and Found papers.

Our next stop was Scrapbookers Too. Love this store.
See the pink and blue seasonal paper? It is really sparkly, I wish it would have shown up better.
I also picked up the 6x6 pack of the primer paper and the G45 Christmas stack. Funny thing is I have this Christmas paper at home. But I wasn't sure if it was the 12x12 or the 6x6, lol.
Also picked up some Neena paper :)

Picked up some dies and embossing folders.
Wayne enabled me with these, not that it took to much for me to grab them, lol.
They had buy 2 get one free.

I love to come here to pick up some Magnolia stamps.
Needed some foam pads (can't find these at home).
And these wood pieces are gorgeous.
Going to try my hand at some hand made some pearls with these liquid pearls. And I want to try out the distress stains :)

That is all for me tonight.
I will share my purchases from Joann's, Michael's, Archiver's and Target tomorrow, don't want to be a show off, lol.
Plus just in case I can't find anything tomorrow, I can share these....Like that's gonna happen ;)

Hope you all had a creative Friday :)

Tracy :)
