New Scrapping Friends.

On Thursday, a fellow Pea emailed me and invited me to join the Southwest Florida Scrappers group. I'm so excited! I'll finally have ladies to scrap with! None of my friends scrap, so this will be fun. I've only ever been to one crop, so I am looking forward to our September crop on the 17th. It is going to be at the local scrapbook store that I shop at (when I get out that way).

So, I figured it wasa a good time to go get one of those cute tool totes from Michael's that everyone has been talking about! Mine only had the black one, which is fine, because my big tote that I already have is black. They were 30% off, so I got it for $13 and some change. Of course, I had to decorate it, so I dressed both bags up with some flowers and bazzill brads. I also tied ribbon to all the zippers on the tool bag.

My paper rack also came in yesterday. It's nothing fancy, but it works great for the paper I have. It looks like so much less when I spread it out this way! I tied ribbons to the side to show what color of paper goes in that slot. Patterned paper is in the upper section, and cardstock is in the lower section.

I noticed how crooked it looked when I loaded this photo onto the computer....apparently I didn't tighten up one of the wheels all the way, so it's fixed now!

I also got a little metal magazine holder that sits on the floor next to my chair. To fill the space where my old paper trays were, I placed an old white metal bread box that belonged to Chad's Great Uncle. I painted flowers on the front, and put my foam alpha stamps in there. It turned out cute! My camera battery is dead right now, and I'm too lazy to go recharge it right now. Hehee. I'll take a picture of it later!

Well, I'm off to work on some rolodex cards for a swap. Have a great weekend, everyone!
