He's a Keeper!

I was really, really bummed about the camera. Michael and I researched on the internet for a new one and concluded that I'd just get another Canon Power Shot since I still had a battery, small memory card, and all the cords for the old one and could use them on any Power Shot. We agreed to go to Costco together since there was a deal on the SE850 (one step up from my lost camera, but neither are manufactured any longer) that included a printer. I was also going to look at the newest SD890 but I wondered whether I really needed the few new features for the extra cost of the latest model. I felt better knowing I had a plan but I still felt funny just not having a camera around. I was surprised how much having one was part of my life, sort of like a car. LOL I also found that there is a scrapping store about 10 miles away! Yeah!!!! I got up yesterday, went browsing through the scrapbooking store figuring I'd stop by the grocery store to pick up peaches for a pie for Micheal, lure him over for the night, and then we'd go to Costco together today to compare shop. Nothing captured my attention at the scrapping store; I kept thinking I needed to use what more of the stash already in my craft room and I had lots of stuff that could produce the "trendy" looks I saw in the store. I called Michael from the grocery store to try to bribe him with the pie. He was weirdly untalkative and would not commit to coming over. Oh well, I bought peaches anyway and drove home thinking about the layout currently in progress in my craft room. I opened the door to my condo and there was a big box with a printer and camera in it from Michael. I was so touched, I literally had tears in my eyes. I tried calling him right away but wouldn't you know it, he didn't answer the phone. Now that is agony! But, eventually, he did come over and he did get his peach pie. My new camera and printer are now ready to go! What a sweetie and certainly a keeper Michael is! I find myself wondering about the women in his life before me who let such a gem go......

I am thinking I need to take pictures of that peach pie I made before it's all gone. LOL Would I scrap it? What theme and journaling would I use.......always on to the next layout, huh?

  3. Hi Mare, It's li'l me again. I was just on Sandra's site and I noticed in a comment from you saying you didn't have a scrapbook store near you. If its papers you're after - try typing ' Shabby Princess' into your search - they have free digital downloads. Another one with cheap downloads is 'Digital Scrapbook Art store''
    Hope this is of some use to you.
    Ask if you need the full URL.

  4. Mare what a honey he is.
    I know what you mean about needing to use stash rather than buy more, I am in the mind set at the moment.
