What A Fantastic Haul!

I've just been shopping. And, boy! do I mean SHOPPING! The rain was pelting down outside, and I didn't notice at all as I filled my basket to the brim.  Now, some things may not, at first, seem to be an obvious 'crafty' item... but I do have plans :)
Despite having taken some amazing photographs over the past couple of months, my 12x12 scrapbook page mojo has (once again) taken an extended vacation... I needed some much-needed inspiration, and a kick up the backside, to start the juices flowing again. Maybe, just maybe, this little shopping extravaganza will help :)
Here's what I managed to get:
  • A lace fringed shawl
  • two bottles of glitter glue in blue and green
  • 3 pairs of jewelled tiebacks with useful clasps
  • 4 large packs snowman rub-ons
  • 3 packs 3-D stickers (match the rubons, above)
  • 2 packs giant playing cards
  • a wonderful hardback book about Van Gogh
  • 2 large books about scrapbook layouts
  • 6 packs of metal charms in 3 dfferent designs
  • a ringbinder
  • index cards (large, A4)
  • A4 lined paper pack
  • pack 20 glossy photo paper (A4)
  • pack 20 ultra-glossy photo paper (A4)
  • Pack 60 white card (A4)
  • large pack printer paper
  • Clear parcel tape - 2 large rolls
  • 3 extra-large packs alpha's and numbers lettering, wood effect
  • 8 extra-large packs of alpha's and numbers, vintage
AND... the best bit... this whole table-full of goodies cost just under £23.
A friend took me shopping so there were no travel costs, and parking was free too.
The large playing cards will probably end up as mini-albums, and the jewelled tie backs will definitely be taken apart...
I'm quite excited about my budget goodies, and am hoping to get started on something... as soon as I've had a nap to recover from the shopping trip :)

Boy , you know how to shop and what a collective bargain! Good luck with the mojo kick start - no doubt you'll be rearing to go with all the new inspiration.

WOW, that is a great shopping spree you had. I love getting all kinds of things and at a great price too. Can't wait to see what you do with it all. I know after shopping my mojo returns and I have to scrap ASAP!!
