A few weeks ago, I met some friends at what may be the last scrapbook store in the greater San Francisco Bay Area (Scrapbook Island). There used to be a dozen within an hour's drive of me (including one in my own small town), but they have been shutting their doors one after the other. And it's a shame. Because cropping at a store is wonderful experience. I enjoy the feeling of community and, of course, the opportunity to shop.
It's wonderful to be able to wander down the aisle and find just the right embellishment to complete a layout. For these two layouts, that's what I did. I had brought page kits with me of paper, photos and some embellishments. But both needed a little more to complete them. Can you guess what I bought for each?
For the July 4 layout, I bought the little flag and the star bunting.
The The Hens layout, I bought the stickers of the hen, eggs and weather vane.
They added just the right finishing touch. Don't you think?
