Scrappy Adventure....Day 3

Today was another fun crafty shopping day.
First stop…back to Pine City Scrapbooking :)
Look they have their own pattern paper with their store name on it..sooooo cool!!
These were my purchases from the first day we went to Pine City Scrapbooking on Monday.
I found a few fun Prima stamps and those stamps at the bottom "Great Impressions" so so cute :)
Now onto Todays goodies :)
I came across this fun Tim Holtz file book. They had one already put together in a Autumn theme, so cute. Plus it was under $5.00..bonus.
I just had to grab a couple of these fun Pine City Scrapbooking papers, I have many happy memories there and equally as many photos.
Nabbed this cute Pima Christmas stamp set. 
You all know I couldn't pass up these zombie papers….how Awesome!!!!
I made a mini album of Ashley's "Night of the Living Dead" photo shoot, but haven't done any 12x12 pages…this paper is Perfect for that.
Here is the mini album I did, if you would like to check it out "Night of the Living Dead" mini album.
I just fell in love with this pretty paper by Bo Bunny called Primrose.
I had to get double sheets as both sides were equally beautiful.
I also picked up the sticker sheet and cutouts.
I figured out I might as well pick out some matching card stock and make a kit out of it all.
We then stopped off at the Walmart here.
Oh look, I found some more paper and washi tape ;)
Remember this is a non-judging blog ;)
Everyone kept telling us that we needed to get a cinnamon bun from Tobies.
I can not tell you how delicious these were.
I think I may pick up a few to share with the family when I get home ;)
When we got back to the hotel, we decided to head to the breakfast room/lobby and do some colouring.
The lighting in our room is terrible, as you can tell by my haul photos.
Everyone who walked by us, stopped to see what we were doing and ask questions :)
Sharon had always told me she would never colour as she doesn't enjoy it.
Well guess what….she is colouring now, teehee.
I have been telling her about coloured pencils and using Gamsol (orderless mineral spirits) to blend…..yes I am such a enabler, teehee.

Sharon picked up some inexpensive artist grade coloured pencils and a smaller container of OMS.
We couldn't find a cheap glass container for the OMS, so we went the dollar store and picked up a sponge. The only container that had a tight lid was a jar of artichokes, lol.
So Sharon put the artichokes in a foam coffee cup with a lid, washed out the glass jar and added the OMS :)
See we are creative all around, teehee.
Thought I would share a couple of images that I had coloured up today.
I was showing Sharon how to blend with the OMS with her coloured pencils. This is the image I coloured up…isn't this just so cute?!
I brought my Copics, so figured I had better use them, teehee.
I have never used this colour combination on jeans before, but I really like it.
I tried to make the balloon transparent….I think it worked.

I am now watching Survivor as Sharon is out at the Casino trying to win back some crafty shopping money, teehee.

I hope you all had a Creative Wednesday :)
