I am soooo bummed...

Beware...lots of pictures to follow! LOL!

The sad story...

Our favorite scrapbook store, Pages In Time, is closing. Forever. Today was the first day of their sale, invitation only. They only had 20% off, but the place was PACKED. And when I say PACKED, I mean looong line to get in and an even looonger line to pay. I didn't buy much, but I did get some really cute paper with squirrels on it! Yay! I also got quite a few sheets of halloween paper. Both for trick or treat pics and pictures from ghost hunting.

I'll post some pictures of the paper in a day or so. I can't wait to scrap some pics of Rocky with the new paper!

My friends-Charlotte, Laura and Muff!

The line at 9:00 this morning. The doors opened at 9:30.

Prizes...winners determined by how much $$ you spend between now and when they close. I won't be winning any of these!

Some poor guy stood holding this sign at the end of the 1 1/2 - 2 hour checkout line. YES...I said 1 1/2 - 2 hour checkout line! LOL

The pictures below were taken a month or so ago when Charlotte and I went shooping at Pages In Time. Little did we know it would be one of our last times.

OMGosh, I've never been to that store, but heard it was awesome! I wanted to go there when Jim went for the interview down that way, but never made it :( So sad to lose another LSS!
