My former self from the age of 6 to 16 would have been so impressed with the future me. A lover of shopping from a very young age, I had a "shopping" birthday party where Papa and Mommy drove 6 of my closest friends in our station wagon with wood paneling to Woodfield Mall so we could go to the Sanrio store. I think I was 10. Like so many teenagers, much of my free time was spent at the mall. Well, I am happy to report that at the age of 32, I finally made it to the Mall of America for the first time, where I spent the past 3 days working with American Crafts at Archiver's Scrapfest. Here's a peek at the photos from my phone:
Lots of scrapbooking, make and takes, laughs with old friends and new, craftiness, and of course, a bit of shopping.
Sorry for the delay in announcing the winner of the Glee Club kit from Studio Calico. Enjoyed reading all about the mostly happy memories from school. And the winner is:
Oooh! I was just wondering if I should join Studio Calico so I can try out this kit! I love the layouts you created with it. Fav school memory would have to be the experience of becoming more independent. Starting to plan and do thing on my own, hanging out with a wide group of friends from all sorts of backgrounds, sporting events... I was lucky to have a wonderful schooling experience.
