Glitter...

I can't believe the best highstreet stationery shop is closing down. Sad but true - Stationery Box will soon be no more. Most of the stuff is sold for 60% off the price now. Visited one at the weekend and got some great bargains. Metallic coloured bulldog clips in different sizes, magnets, a (green!) ruler, a tiny address book, some post-it note tabs, glittery colouring pencils and lots of other things. But the best thing I bought was a datestamp!! Can't believe I have not got one of these before!! I think I ended up paying less than a pound for it. Most of the items I got were about 40-60p!!

A little selection of what I got:

My glittery pencils which I couldn't resist:

And some cool magnets called "crystalballs":

I have just finished a layout using the new Scenic Route papers. I'm on a mission to try and start using my eyelets again. Let's face it, who hasn't got hundreds (or thousands?!) of them nicely sorted by colours in boxes? And I have decided mine need to be used rather than just stored. So here's my first attempt. 20 eyelets used...
