Layouts, New stuff and more!

Check out this ADORABLE page from Megan Klauer!!  This is the new Fancy Pants line from a previous post. This is such a stunning layout! And just goes to show how versatile this collection is!

Yesterday was the day to bring your project in to get a discount, and we saw some lovely work! Our friend Pat brought in this layout and let us take a picture! She used the free make and take from a few weeks ago!
Thank you for sharing, Pat!

Ready for some more NEW STUFF?  Well guess what, the SCHOOL stuff is finally in! It wasn't all on the shelves yesterday, but it is still IN THE STORE! At last! Here is a taste of what we have for you:
Wrestling and Track papers!

Stickers and embellishments galore (this is just a sample!)
We also have new High School papers, but I didn't have a chance to photograph them!  We added a few new schools, so watch for the next store email newsletter or the blog, we'll be showing you soon!

We also have a new line of We R Memory Keepers! It is SOOO elegant! In fact, the collection's name is Tres Elegant!  This line would be excellent for a wedding album, heritage photos, debutante ball and more! The embellishments are gorgeous (Cameos! Pearls! Doilies!).  When you come in to look, be sure to take one of the FREE project sheets that came with this collection!

Don't forget, friday night is Cropaganza! Only $5 to crop till midnight and that gets you 15% off your purchases that night!
