Garage Sale Finds

Don't you just love finding a good deal??  I haven't been garage sale-ing much this summer yet, but we went to a few this morning and finally had some good luck.  I'm very excited to have found a whole box of scrapbooking goodies for just $5.  It was filled with lots of Cosmo Cricket kit supplies (my Favorite!) and also lots of these blue/green/orange albums/paper/embellishments.  I know I got a steal for my $5!  I plan on making some fun cards with the Cosmo Cricket goodies, but I'm not sure on the rest.  I have a sister-in-law who's pregnant right now, and the blue/green supplies would make a cute baby album if they have a boy.  So I'll have to wait and see on that set.  Besides these scrapping stuff, we also bought some puzzles, books, a galvalized metal tool caddy (maybe for scrapping embellishments), and a slip-n-slide.  Lexie begged for that one - and the $2 I spent should bring a good return of fun and smiles this afternoon.  So all that for $10 - gotta love garage sales.

Lots of Cosmo Cricket paper, envelopes, chipboard letters, and embellishments.

2 Albums, page inserts, and embellishments.  On the right are chipboard alphas.

And one last thing to show you - I actually found a little time to make a couple of cards this week.  I'm trying to use up some paper and embellishments I've had for a while. 

This week flew by for me since we got home on Monday from a little trip to visit family, and the rest of the week was full of baseball games. I'm looking forward to this weekend at home to relax and craft, and probably clean, too!

Enjoy your weekend!
