Shopping Day

My cousin and I went for a fun shopping day today - I'd heard about a really cool scrapbooking store in a town about an hour away, and knew of a good restaurant there for lunch, so we took off this morning in her new car to check it out. We saw this sign on a little accidental detour we took before she mentioned she had a Garmin - my shorthanded Google maps notes got us really turned around. I had to take a picture - it was the same on the other side too!

This is us in front of the restaurant where we ate - the waiter disappeared right when I was going to get a picture, so we just did it ourselves - thus the weird angle.

I loved the scrapbook store! When I first saw the door, I thought I was going to be disappointed - it looked kind of dinky. But inside, The Crafty Scrapper was HUGE. They had so much great stuff. I picked up some fun stuff I plan on using for tags, not to mention some actual embroidered canvas tags that are just gorgeous. I also found this Book Lovers set that I'd been keeping an eye out for - I just love it! So, so cute.

We parked next to this Smart Car when we stopped on the way home for cookies - I thought it was so clever.

OMG I first have to comment on the smart car. IT is a lightning McQueen one! That is sooo cool. I have to show Madison!

It sounds like you guys had a fun day!

Oh I tagged you on my blog!

I'm jealous. All of the scrapbook stores around here have closed. We do have several good sized all-purpose craft stores, so I guess I shouldn't complain too much. But... ah, for the good old days!
