My goodies from shopping

FINALLY got off my butt and took the pics off my camera from my shopping trip to Great Falls!!



This first picture has some of the cool alterable containers I bought - the Tootsie Roll and Double Bubble containers are piggy banks. I bought 6 of those mugs - thought I could stamp them up and put stuff in them for little end of the year gifts for some of the ladies at work. The BIG clothespin clips are so cute too, I only bought 3 of those! LOL AND those little suitcases...omg, can you see it? It is soooo cute!!!!! I think I bought 3 of those too!! ALL of those things were only $1!! WHEEEE!!!!! The other things are all from JoAnns in the $1 section.








The lighting was terrible that day so these pics aren't so great - sorry! Here is batch #2 of the stuff I bought.....



some scrapbooking stickers/embellishments, rhinestones, metal dots, epoxy stickers, 2 DCWV packs of paper, ribbon, 2 suitcases to alter and buttons, tags, chipboard..........

Here is the 3rd batch of goodies...... I finally broke down and bought the rest of my Ranger Alcohol ink things I need to get started....at more than 1/2 the price they sell them here, how could I NOT???



more scrapbooking stuff, rhinestones, brads, charms - can you see those summer charms at the bottom...OMG, they are sooooooooo cute!!!!!!


NOW, if only I had time to create!! This week has been so busy - I only made 1 card (show you that tomorrow!!)


Here is a touristy picture we took...LOL...just to prove we were there and did something BESIDES shop.......



AND, a picture of the bags of STUFF we bought!!! LOL That is my sister! There was about 6 bags of stuff in the car already that we didn't bring up and 2 cases of beer!!!! LOL So, we had a pretty good haul!!!!

I wish we had taken a pic of the car loaded down when we got it all in!!!! My sister had to buy another duffle bag!!! LOL Anyways, it was a really fun trip - disappointed that Ben Franklin's was closed down, but had fun in JoAnn's for my first ever time!!!!! VERY disappointed in the Dollar selection at Target too!!! Ahhh welllll!!!!!

Have a great night!!!
