Clean Up On Aisle 7....

Huh? Crazy scrapping girl say what?! LOL! Okay, so, you know you're obsessed with scrapbooking, and embellishments, when you can spend 10 minutes looking at the scrapbook paper and "stuff" at the grocery store! Yes, you read that right! I was able to find scrapbook stuff in THE GROCERY STORE! LOL! Good stuff too! LOL! So, I'm strolling along and I see "the stuff" and I stopped to drool, I mean look and I get the "bestest idea"! The recent event in my DH"s family with his Grandma passing away his Mom will probably need to right notes right?! Well... let me do what I do best and make her some! Okay maybe not best but, not too shabby!

In the beginning there was a sweet little 10 pack of scalloped edge cards....


Then 5 of these sweet little scalloped edge cards met up with a stamp set from SU called "Oh So Lovely", an alpha set from Papertrey Ink and a variety of ink colors!



Not to be outdone the last 5 scalloped edge cards met up with some paper scraps, the SU set "Riveting", alpha set from Papertrey Ink, and a variety of inks to match the paper scraps!



I wanted to do a holder but I can't come up with anything yet...yet (I'm open to ideas....)! LOL! I am pretty pleased with these cards and think they're the just right size for a fast note which, most days, would be all I have time to do! LOL! Whodathunk I would have found them in the grocery store too! LOL! Maybe grocery shopping isn't that bad after all! LOL!

I once bought lawn furniture at a grocery store and thought that wa pretty unusual. But I have never seen sb stuff at any grocery store around here. Probably a good thing or my grocery budget would go out the window.

These are all great sets of note cards.
