Autobiographical Pocket Letter exchange with Natalie

Recently took part in a pocket letter exchange for one of my Facebook groups.
The theme was autobiographical, which was challenging because I had no
idea what to include. I thought I had done a pretty good job, but was totally blown
away when I received my partner's pocket letter!

Look at the beautiful presentation! The scroll is her letter. 
OMG, I'm so far out of my league it's not funny! Natalie is amazingly talented!

The butterflies are sort of 3D and the little books are actual books! Wowza!

Michaels Haul - May 2017

went in for 2 rolls of washi tape...

Oh Michaels, you clever minx. You know just how to get me to visit, don't you? Lure me in with a 25% off everything coupon, then seal the deal with a Buy One, Get One Free sale!

you had me at flamingo...

These are the main reason I went to Michaels. Last time I saw these pretties, they were 40% off, so figured I'd use the extra 25% off coupon and treat myself. Get to the store and they're BOGO! How could I not buy them, when they were practically giving them away? Love the tropical designs!

Right around the corner from the tropical display were these puppies, also BOGO. Score! How could anyone resist the dog washi? And flamingos are my newest must have, so it was a win-win!

Also picked up another paper pad because it was only $5, plus some more stickers and tabs. Bought another photo box because hey, only $2.50 so why not? And bling! Bought my first self-stick gem bling because they were on sale. Yeah, went a little nuts with all these goodies jumping into my cart.

Everything was either a doorbuster or on sale, so the only regular price item I could use my 40% off coupon for was the $1 sticker book! ha!

Excited to start crafting with my new goodies!
