I think my knitting is coming along just fine. Actually, I'm pretty proud of myself. I found an easy beginners pattern for these booties. I had never knitted with really bulky yarn...it was tricky but I learned a lot. They are Sooooooooooooooooo soft!! Now I'm making another pair for my little 4 year old friend. I even let her pick out the yarn.

The next 3 layouts were made with papers that I bought from Tracy's new store,
Scrap~N~Crap. They are all My Mind's Eye and Fancy Pants papers. The first 2 are from Halloweens past and the 3rd is of my sister and me from one of our cruises.

Thanks for stopping by!

It's hard to believe that this empty store, a few weeks ago...
Is full of such fun supplies today!

Looking forward to more inventory coming in this week! I had fun working in the store this weekend. From here on in I am on an on-call basis. But, I'm sure I'll still be around.

Their first day was a huge success! There were people waiting outside before the doors opened!! Fantastic!

Last night Tracy went and bought balloons (she hates balloons!)...they just filled her car.

The store sign hasn't come in yet so Kimber decorated the front of the store.

Some views of the inside of the store during some of the slower times. There was constant traffic in the store all day!

Tomorrow's another day and we think it will be even busier.

THIS IS IT!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, Today's the day! Scrap~N~Crap is opening!! We're all both exhausted and excited. I left the store kinda early last night. I don't know what time everyone else went home.

This was the sight as I walked into the store yesterday morning. We accomplished quite a lot in the prepping of the store. I'll post some more pics tonight...I hope!

Here's a short list of brands the store will be carrying:

3 Bugs in a Rug
7 Gypsies
American Crafts
Anna Griffin
Bam Pop!
Basic Grey
Cosmo Cricket
Crate paper
Daisy Bucket Designs
Fancy Pants
Graphic 45
Jenni Bowlin
Jillibean Soup
Kaiser Craft
KI Memories
Luxe Designs

That's about 1/2 of the list right now. More later.

I just love this relatively new challenge blog! It focuses on the "Me" instead of just scrapping the vacations, kits, etc. The prompts have been great so far. Can't wait for the next one. I haven't been able to scrap much lately so I've missed the deadlines for several challenge blogs. I finally got to sit down and do 2 whole layouts!

The prompt for this one was to scrap about your favorite movie. There are so many that I've loved over the years but this one just stood out so much more! I'm not a big fan of Abbott & Costello movies but this one was just so different...only 1 of 2 that they didn't act together in their usual fashion.

In a song called "If you could read my mind" there's a reference to the "ghosts in a wishing well". I believe that that quote references this movie. And, this is the movie that sparked my interest in ghostly things and the supernatural. LOVE this movie!!
So, I totally missed the deadline for this one but I wanted to do it anyway.

This one is for the latest prompt about your favorite foods. Now, I didn't get to look the way I do by eating too many green beans! I love lots of different kinds of foods. But this is one that I have the hardest time to pass up. CINNAMON!! It has so many healthy advantages too!
Thanks for looking!

Thanks for looking!
