Treasure Hunt (con't)

Well, as they say, better late than never. I've finally had a chance to upload the rest of the photos from the Treasure Hunt and get them put up here. My sister and I hit all nine stores last weekend and a tea party to boot! We had a great time. My first stop was in my last post. Charmin arrived about 10:30 Saturday morning and we loaded up and took off. We hit Scraps of Art first, since it's right down the street from my house, love that!!! I didn't even know it was there until I looked at the map of directions to each place. Very cool, about 5 minutes from my house. Will be a regular there! These ladies were really dressed up for the occasion as well. There store was all decorated and they had these cute painting cut-outs for you to get your picture taken in, lol!! Our next stop was Whim So Doodle in St. Petersburg. We were both really excited about this one, they carry a large selection of Tim Holtz stuff. We are both heavily in to Tim Holtz these days. I picked up a few TH must haves and Charmin added to her collection of Copic Markers. More to come so stay tuned. I'm going to see if I can find a lesson on how to make these photos stay where I put them. It all looks good on the preview but as soon as you hit 'publish post' it goes all wacky AND IT'S MAKING ME CRAZY! uuuGGHHH!

Treasure Hunt 2011

We have started this year's Treasure Hunt, well, I have anyway. My little sister dupped me last night. She was supposed to be here by the time I got off work but couldn't make it, so I went on the first leg of our journey alone. First stop was K2 Scrapbook Studio in Sarasota. A little over an hours drive south of here and a cute little shop. The owners made it really fun. They were dressed up to play the part and were very helpful and friendly. Enjoyed the visit there! These pictures were taken from my cell phone (not bad for a basic $30 a month cell phone from Wally World). I forgot my camera so the lady there (the one in the black) suggested I use my cell phone. Have never really used it for picture taking but I will again. This shot was taken outside, of course, but the wind was blowing pretty good so it's a bit blurry. And here's me at the counter when we were trying to figure out if I could email these photos from my phone. Guess what??? It worked!!! Day Two coming up. Supposedly Charmin is up and getting ready to come over here, about a 2 1/2 hour drive. Then we will embark on the rest of our journey. I'll share some more pictures tonight or tomorrow, depending on how tired we are tonight, lol! Happy Trails!!!
