I was away yesterday for the day. Jeff was called to set again for Farewell Atlantis a big budget movie being filmed at the North Shore Film Studios in North Vancouver which is about an hour drive (with no traffic) west of Chilliwack. I thought to go in with him and spend the day in the stomping ground where I had spent my youth, while catching up with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while!
So the first stop was to get to OPUS Framing and Art supplies to pick up my Copic blending marker that Peg told me that I HAD to get!! LOL So I did, along with some blending stumps to work with OMS which I heard the Baby Oil works almost as good! And um, a few other Copic markers too! ACK! I’ve started…I can’t go back now!!
These are the Copics that followed me home:
Well then when I had met up with my great friend Kelly-Erin, I mentioned that we should check out this Scrap Arts place that I found online. She hadn’t heard of it so off we went! ONLY to find out that um…*cough, cough* Scrap Arts was only around the block from OPUS! Have I told you that I can have a one track mind, sometimes?? LOL
As per usual, walking into a new scrap store for me is like a kid in a new candy store. It may have some of the same things but soooo different! It’s a great store! Well set up and very welcoming! I highly recommend that you visit their blog http://www.scraparts.blogspot.com/ to check out what they’re all about! They’ve even had Breakfast TV visit on a few occasions!
I picked up a few things (it’s tough to ignore those red SALE signs, I tell ya!). I mean, sheesh 15% off Cuttlebug embossing folders at $5.99 is tough to pass up! PROBLEM tho…I don’t even own a Cuttlebug! LOL!
Of course some Basic Grey Christmas patterned paper and um…ho!
Here’s the BT paper I adopted and gave them a new home:
One project really caught my eye when I walked in the door, they were having a class on the 23rd of August (I was already committed that day) or Friday in a couple of hours. There happened to be 2 seats left for it too! Gotta love spontaneity! Yup we signed up for this “Girlfriends, Flip and Fold Book” and we returned in 2 hours…
Sorry to keep you in suspense! I did the basic work there but I just quickly need to finish it off. It’s almost 2am, I’ll hit the sack (after I check out the new CTMH catty online!!) and post the project and more of my misadventures later today! Sleep tight!
