Archiver's haul and Mad Tea Party Winner

A few days ago, I drove to my favorite scrapbook store, Archiver's. It's a good drive -- 40 miles from my house. There is a scrapbook store about 10 minutes from me, but I just don't like it.

I love Graphic 45 paper. They do a lot of vintage themes and Archiver's has the best selection of their paper. Here's some of the Graphic 45, fairy themed paper that I bought some time ago, called Once Upon a Springtime.

And on my last journey there, I picked up some papers from the Olde Curiosity Shoppe line.

On this trip, I bought several miscellaneous 12x12 sheets of paper for some current projects I'm working on. I also bought a 12x12 pad of paper, called "Ladies Diary". There are 24 double-sided sheets,{two sets of twelve sheets}.

I'm completely in love with all these sheets. Here are my favorite sheets found inside this pad.

And then, because Halloween is right around the corner {well, kind of}, I had to buy some Halloween paper. Grapic 45 strikes again with these vintage images they've re-purposed into new paper.

I'll  probably make cards out of this sheet.

I can never pass up owl-themed paper.

I picked up some new Halloween stamps, by Graphic 45. I love the witch flying across the moon.

Then I hit Hobby Lobby and Michael's craft store. Both stores had 40% off coupons last week. The coupons are available on each store's website. Last week Michael's ran 1/2 off embellishments and stickers by Recollections. Here's a small sample of what I picked up:

Now, it's time to put all these embellishments and paper to use!

What great paper...not being crafty at all, I never paid much attention to the papers. Really great ones.

I love scrapbook papers! Are you going to post pictures of what you made with the Lady's Diary papers and embellishments?
