paperchase, picnic, and project.

The past few days has been quite eventful.

Over the weekend, the Scrapbook Expo was in the area. There are always such great finds at this event, so we didn’t want to miss out on all the bargains. Some of the lines for certain exhibits were extremely long. I think we waited over 30 minutes just to shop and pay for our items.

The long lines produced a not-so-thrilled Gloria.

I wasnt too happy about waiting either.

Other then the long lines, we had a good time stocking up on much needed supplies. ((Like I need anymore supplies, right?!))

I also started the Sizzlin’ Summer Paperchase over the weekend. So this is how it works… You get a “passport”, and you try to visit as many scrapbook stores on the list. With the passport, you are entailed to a 20% discount off your purchase in the stores. Plus, each store has designed a fun make and take to add to your “paperchase mini album”. Right now, I’ve only visited 4 out of the 20 stores, so hopefully I’ll be able to hit up more stores later this week.

This weekend, we also had a picnic at the park. We all had a blast, especially the dogs!

Having a picnic in the park was definitely a great way to end the weekend.

Having a picnic in the park is always a fun summer activity!

I have no idea what Im laughing about, but I thought this was a funny picture.

    Hi Sarah, what do I like about your blog? To start, you have some really bright and fun layouts, I love looking at them. And then there are your puppies. Let me just say that I do not like dogs, not in the least bit, but yours, well, what can I say? Either you are a REALLY Phenomenal photographer or they really are THAT adorable. I can’t believe how much I love looking at their pictures, so sad, LOL!!!!

  2. Sarah, I want to go to an expo! 😦 Im jealous, but Im glad it wasnt me in that long line. I hate long lines. Great photos and love Maui pillow :). Also Hilo has gotten so big.

    Also no sorries needed here. I know you been out of state, so Im sure you will work your way around to the photo. Well give the fur-babies a hug from me and my fur-babies…hehehe
