Happy Memorial Day

Hello all!
I wanted to make sure you all see what Heather has going on at 3 Scrappy Boys this weekend!


In honor of Memorial Day, 3 Scrappy Boys will be making our annual donation to the Wounded Warrior Project, as well as a donation to the Red Cross to help those affected by the awful tornado in Oklahoma. 10% of all sales will be matched by me personally and then split between the two organizations. Last year we were able to make a $200 donation and I hope to increase that this year.
We have started a 20% off sale and have been busy restocking our popular grab bags. If you have not bought one before, you are missing out! These are always full of a ton of great product-both older and newer, as well as kit extras. None of them are the same, so feel free to purchase more than one. There are several to choose from:

Memorial Day Grab Bag for $25

$10 embellie

$15 embellie

$10 paper

Please stop by and take advantage of some great deals while helping a great cause at the same time!

Cosmo Cricket Summer Love is perfect for Syd!

 
So I'm Back from Mega Meet and I'm tired! I had so much fun talking with so many craters. It was so fun to chat with many people that love scrapping as much as me.
 
Plus I got to see Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi and Mario even rang up my order. Not to mention I got chat with Jenni Bowlin and meet a ton of my favorite online vendors and friends.

For my layout I started this beautiful sketch over at Sketchabilities
