F&S AUG 20, 08

Chrissy, thanks so much for visiting - very glad to have you here :) And thanks again for the participation prize! :)
Pikachu, really appreciate your comment and I love your QPs too! :)
Patty, glad the info was useful to you. I hardly ever buy a grabbag now without a reveal, every time I do so, I regret it, not necessarily because it was bad but usually not stuff I really want. How did you do at the MSA games?
Sue, thanks so very much once again! You gave me heart :)

Sorry, I'm late & missed posting some stuff again. Have been out a fair bit these few days & I've also been indulging myself in that very time-wasting habit of sleeping :D Colin's brother's family came up from Miri for a day trip today and we met up with them for lunch - Japanese, yum! I've been having a huge craving for Japanese recently. Once upon a time, we'd go almost every week, sometimes a few times a week. Now probably once every few months. If I quit buying so many kits, we can probably afford to go more often :D

It's been a great month prize-wise! After DAM, I can't believe I actually won another random - Peta Boardman's new kit. Hmmm, maybe I should try joining these things more often! I'd also joined in GDS' QP swap & in addition to the QPs, I got Andrea Gold's grabbag of NINE products for using her template. Then ChrissyW's blog template challenge which had a participation gift of $2 coupon (which I put to VERY good use during ES's Dollar Deals :D). I double-dutied it with LOLS' colour challenge so will be getting a nice VFT kit from it too. I also saw a Karah Fredericks thread for the MSA games just a couple of hours before it closed. It wasnt random, the 1st 2 persons to post a LO gets a $5 voucher. I was surprised there wasnt any entry so I rushed out a LO & 'won' :D I double-dutied that one with PBP's birthday scraplift challenge so yay, it'll also earn me an SMJ kit! Sorry, so much boasting! I guess this is my equivalent of buying pretty dresses and modeling them in front of the mirror :D

Is everyone shopping? So many great deals lately! I got a bunch of WW stuff and really love the GWP album, just wish it came without wordart - it makes it harder to find pics when you have to match a set theme. I really wanted but didnt get the Delightful Collection though :( Maybe next year's birthday if there's a bigger discount. I'm also shopping Catscrap's 40% items daily & really hope their last day's selected items will include the kits on my list so I can get them all. My favourite bargain so far though is the Funky Junky Spring Fling albums. I literally squealed when I saw them on offer for $1. Now keeping my fingers crossed she'll resurrect the FJ1 & FJ Xmas albums :D

OK sorry I've been a babblebrook. I'll shut up now.

Yep, and now that you have gave me the info on the wonderful grab bag reveal blog, I bought another...lol. The MSA Games was a bust for me. I guess my number just wasn't called. But, I always feel bad about joining in when I have to become a member. They probably think I'm just joining to play. But, I would have felt more welcome if I had...? Hmmm, no biggie, it killed a couple of hours. Thanks, for asking.
