Scraplifting at its best....

So I fell in love with this girls' layout found here
and had to scraplift it (aka...copy it) So here is my version, and I think it turned out great!

When you're lacking in your own creativity, why not be inspired by someone else's?

Lucky Break

So the town I live in is full of garage sales....LOVE THEM!!

It is always my secret wish that I will happen upon a garage sale where they are selling scrapbooking stuff. Well, my Mom found one last week, and called me up to go. It had sprinkled a little that morning on all their stuff, so some of the papers were really wet. These two older sisters that lived together are moving to FL and are avid scrappers, and boy did they have a lot of stuff. I basically grabbed 3 boxes of papers and embellishments (knowing I couldn't possibly go through it all right there) and made them an offer. $15 for all 3 boxes. After a little haggling, they agreed.

So, I took them home and started going through the stash. was a lot of work, and I threw away a lot of wet papers. Some were really cute too!! But, when all was said and done, I realized that I had hit the mother load, and gotten a FABULOUS deal.

I estimated that I got about 1000 sheets of 12x12 papers. 300 of which are solid colored cardstock which I totally needed!! Here's a pic of just the paper I got:It was like Christmas going through those boxes. I am one happy girl! Now I just need more space to scrap.
