Grand Prize Winner

Just a quick weekend update. I went to the Crop Around Town (Cosmo Cricket) on Friday nite and it was totally awesome!! Spent the evening with 46 other women and Dr. Larry (he sat across from me). Too funny!! Julie, Lindsay and Lisa from Cosmo Cricket rocked the crop at Archiver's Eden Prairie. They gave out tons of prizes and me #7 did not win and that's my lucky number. Oh well....I still had a great time with my friends and the Cosmo gang. My only real complaint was that it was really HOT in the room we were in but we still enjoyed ourselves.

Saturday...Went to Basic Grey's Crop Around Town Archiver's Roseville and wouldn't you know I first won a sheet of Rub Ons. I'm really not into Rub Ons but I was greatful to just win something. Maybe I will learn to like them? I am a stamper!!Basic Grey had a cool tool for Rub Ons and I wanted it (I'm a tool freak) especially after winning my sheet of Rub Ons. LOL!! Well low and behold the last prize of the evening donated by Basic Grey (grand prize of course) was won by me number #28. I literally froze in disbelief as I'm normally not lucky at winning. I tried to peak down at my name tag to see if my number was really 28??!! YUP it sure was. I just couldn't believe I won. I froze instead of screaming and my head got all funny. It was another totally awesome nite!! Everything was just perfect. I will have to say Archiver's in Roseville is my favorite store for many reasons. It was a really pleasant, relaxing, and cool (air conditioned) evening. I really enjoyed myself and the company was great with my girlfriends. I didn't get a lot done as usual but that's nothing new!! I loved that a young man from Starbucks came and took our drink orders. Mandy and Layle did an awesome job entertaining us from Basic Grey and answering our questions. I love meeting the people behind the scenes. I hope I got Mandy's name right. If not I will correct it Sunday evening. I can't believe I forgot her name. It just doesn't look right but its so late. I almost want to say Abby?

Blick Art Supply (Saturday nite)...I ran like hell to get a nine pack of black Copic multiliners at like 8:55 pm. I love Blick's more than you can possibly imagine. Its right next door to Archiver's in Roseville. Can you say dangerous??

Sunday plans...I will be at the Mall of America for Scrapfest hopefully by 9:15 am to grab some coffee at Starbucks and check out the Scrapfest vendors. I may meet up with some new friends from Las Vegas I met on Friday night and a few other people. I can hardly wait!! Its probably close to 2:30 am so I better get my beauty rest. Nightie night my friends. Tami...The Big Winner :D I am beyond excited. I guess spending $100 for two crops and constantly trying for two hours to get through to two different Archiver stores to sign up four people finally paid off. I also got a Starbuck's gift from Jan. Thanks!! Let's see what Sunday brings? Please excuse any typos. I'm too tired to proofread this post. Sweet dreams my friends and happy Sunday.
