Midnight Scrap at the Local Scrapbook Store.

I went to my LSS (Passion for Paper) of the most wonderful cupcakes I've ever had (very decidant!). We then had two raffles, neither of which I won (doh!) and then I got to try out "Opals Embossing Enamel" by Pipe Dream Ink.... Gotta tell you I'm hooked! This stuff takes embossing to a completely new level. I'll put up a photo of an example I did to show you the effect you get with this stuff.

I then spent the rest of the evening die cutting with the shops' Big Shot, Sizzix and Sizzlet. I know most of the other women who attended got a page or two done but I really hate getting a layout half done and then having to abandone it because I don't have all the tools I need. And lets face it there's no way I could take every tool, embellishment and supply I have to an away scrap. I have the makings for around 20 pages now by just focusing on using her tools and getting the most out of them.

All round though I think it was a very well spent evening. My $15 bought me 5 hours of use of the store's tools, unlimited tea and coffee, lovely cake, unlimited lolly supply. An 'opalised' piece of chipboard, binding of my off the page project (photos to come to my blog soon) and cutting out of enough die cuts for around 20 layouts.... COOL!

Now that is $15 well spent. You can go out and just have coffee and cake and have spent that let along getting the use of scrapbooking tools :-) Well done.
