On the road again.....

Good morning!  Five of the "Hive" took a road trip to Central Florida and shopped till we dropped!  We visited 7 scrapbook stores in 5 different cities in just 2 days!

Michael's and JoAnn's were a must! We found great deals to compliment our findings in some amazing scrapbook stores in Central Florida.

There was a Scrapbook Treasure Hunt going on in the Tampa Bay area and we were able to take advantage of the fun displays the stores had.

This is how the trunk of our car looked like after our last stop, it was full to the top!

I got a chance to make these layouts during our weekend together.  This first one is the beautiful Victoria Gardens Collection from Echo Park. I was hoarding these papers because they are soooo beautiful and I did not want to use them!  (Have this ever happened to you?).

This next one is Loolah from Creative Imaginations IOD.  Since I had sneaked my tape gun and cutter along on the trip, I was able to do some "midnight scrapping" on the hotel bed and got to try out some of the new edge punches we bought that day.  (it must have been the full moon....)  I just love the daisies and the little bugs are so cute!

Treasure every friend you have and make sure you let them know how much you love them!!!  Have a great, amazing and blessed day!
