Then we headed over a couple streets to The Scrapbook Garden in Huntington Beach, which is actually not to far from where I used to live. I found some cool rhinestone embellies as well as those spinners from Cosmo Cricket....never tried those before. Also, I picked up some Spica pens that I've heard some great things about. I'll give 'em a try and let you know. Mom found some awesome papers and I even got her to pose for the camera! And don't you love their "Wild Thing" Make 'n' Take. I also found the best sign there that I MUST have for the shop. I immediately uploaded it to my facebook page.
Then it was off to The Red Bee in Tustin and this time I successfully picked up the toll road so we were there in no time at all. Besides having a great scrapbooking selection, they are a full service craft store with goodies for beading, knitting and home decor. Among other things, I scored some neat pumpkins for my Halloween display, distress stickles which I've never tried before and my fave pink pen. Mom got some yarn and some great papers.
Then it was time for home...so with our goodies in the backseat and pick-up stix take out for dinner, we headed west on the Imperial Hwy until we picked up the 105 for home. Gotta love that loop. It was so much fun. I wish I could visit the other Shop Hop stores, but I'm looking forward to that next year!
