Deal- A-Day Special

I am so excited. I waited and waited and waited for the man in Brown to come today. He was late. It was a fill in and of all days he was late. I wanted to share with everyone the goodies I got in my goodie box today from Close To My Heart. Below is a picture of all the great thing that were in my box. I purchased another box today and can hardly wait to see what the surprise is in it. I am like a kid, I hate to wait. But I guess I will have to. I will let you know what is in that box when my boy friend (my husband calls the man in brown - UPS) delivers it. I am off to pack for the retreat this weekend!

Have a Great Day and Happy Scrapping!
