Happy Labor Day

I did not get a chance to post on Friday, like I usually like to do. I had to take a nap after work so I had some rest for a LSS crop that day. I had to take my boyfriends Suburban to the crop because I had purchased one of their shelf cabinets. That is one of many things that I purchased from there. They closed for good on Saturday September 1st. Friday was their last crop. It was a little sad as I saw one of the ladies that worked there crying & went into the back room with the owner. I had not been there real often because I lived almost an hour away but it was my favorite LSS. The LSS in our town closed last summer & I miss it there also. All the ladies, at this LSS that just closed, were always so cheerful & nice. This is the store that had the bus trip that I went on last November. The whole VIP scrappin experience will be missed.

On a happier note, they did have some good sales going on. I stocked up on Distress inks, stickles, stains. Bought some TH alteration items & a configurations tray. They had a tote special. Fill up their totebag of 24 sheets of cardstock & coordinations paper for $10. I bought on that sale 2 different times. Some Basic Grey & BoBunny papers too. I also bought some BoBunny & Little Yellow Bicycle embellishments.  I had bought a shirt the first week but I also won another shirt when they gave away prizes towards the end of the crop.
Here are some pictures of my scrappin goodies that I bought.
This 2nd picture is of the cabinet from the LSS that just closed but to the left of that are wooden slats with paper trays & hooks. Those items came from the LSS that closed in my town last year. So, I have started a collection from the LSS that have closed in my area.

I also got a picture with the owner & another lady that worked there, which I also did at my LSS.  I am sure to be scrappin these 2 LSS  sometime. Not sure when I will get to that as it seems that I am never going to finish my 2 wedding albums that I am working on. LOL.
There was a funny thing that happened at the LSS. The owner was telling me, while I was looking around, that I have a look alike. She is another customer & she gets us mixed up. I have never met the lady but the owner was telling me about a time when she called this lady by my name. There was a lady standing about 5ft. behind me when the owner was telling me this & she says that was me. The owner never even saw her standing there. One of those things when you had to be there. Everyone got a chuckle out of it. So, I did get to meet my look alike the very last day I was there.

Hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day weekend.
Happy Scrappin!
