My SIL Sharon, Heather, Kristy and I are in Minneapolis. I LOVE my road trips :)
We haven't hit Mall of America yet or my other favourite store, Scrapbookers Too. We are doing that tomorrow :)
We are so tired, so this will be a short post but its full of happy pictures :)
First stop was Pine City Scrapbooks. I love this store. The cards the ladies make are stunning.
So I picked up these cute Pure Innocence stamps and these brads that are shaped like scissors, so cute. :)
Also from that same store I saw this gorgeous Winnie the Pooh paper pack. Phillane had sent me a few sheets, so when Kristy and I saw this paper pack we were pretty excited.
I also picked up a few 6x6 paper packs.
I am really enjoying the 6x6's. I used to think they were a waste of money..until I got into card making ;)
Then we went to Michaels and these gourds were on sale. Funny thing is they were $9.99 US, $16.99 Canadian regular price. Funny as our dollar is so close but they still jack up the prices for us Canadians.
Lastly we went to Joann fabric and crafts. I saw the one cloud punch at Pine City but wasn't sure if the size was to small. Then was so happy to see that they had two different sizes. Thought of you Mary Pat :)
I really liked this paper pack, but told myself I had to much paper and didn't need this. Heather came along so I told Sharon, if Heather likes it I'm getting it.
Sure enough she liked it, so I had to buy it, teehee.
She also really loved the Tattered Time paper pack, but I have that one already ;)
I also picked up some chipboard pieces. The one on the left is Winnie the Pooh, and the other one is Halloween pieces.
Another great find...which I search for where ever I go, are these Cream horns...when my brother Darrell and I were young we called these long johns.
Breakfast ;) We did pick up some fruit as well :)
When we went to Rydens to pick up my newest order of stamps...I haven't even posted those yet, Kristy found these glasses. She is such a character.
I don't think we have stopped laughing all day.
When we went to Pine City there is a playground across the street. The girls went to check it out while we were shopping.
I told them to bring my camera and have some fun :)
Okay this is not a happy photo.
On the way into Minneapolis on the highway we came upon this Quad (ATV as my nephew Tom calls them) in the middle of the highway.
It fell off some guys trailer. Luckily we weren't behind him when this happened.
I found it odd that the 2 girls were running to get the machine, while the man stayed with his truck which was over 1/4 mile from where it fell off.
No other vehicles were involved in this accident.
Another scary thing that happened was we were at the hotel getting into the vehicle and noticed 3 police cars by the road and one by the gas station. I was in the car, Sharon was standing by her open door. Two police officers were slowly walking beside Sharon, the one cop had her gun out, the other had his machine gun (not sure if that was what is was) out.
I say to Sharon "Get in the car, Get in the car". Mean while she is oblivious to what is happening.
The police didn't say anything to us, just kept on going.
When we left we counted 6 police cars.
I hope they got their bad guy.
We were going to go to Red Lobster for supper, but the parking lot was full and the sitting area outside was packed. So we went shopping for about an hour and a half and when we came back it was the same thing.
So we will probably go tomorrow.
So I am sitting here drinking a hot chocolate hoping to warm up, as these whachadoodles think it is hot in the hotel room and have the air conditioner on.
Hope you all had a creative Sunday :)
