Yesterday, I found this photo in my jewelry box of all places, while I was digging for a necklace. I'm not sure what it was doing in there; I thought it was in the family photo album. I didn't think too much about it, figured it had teleported itself there with a request. Scrap me! Scrap ME! So I grabbed it, scanned it, cropped it, resized it, and printed it off. Just in case, you know?
Well, as it turned out, I was also scheduled to work yesterday at my Local Scrapbook Store. Now I don't normally work on Thursdays. My classes are usually Tuesdays and Saturdays, and I have a standing work schedule for every other Wednesday as well. And I wouldn't have been working yesterday either, except the boss and store manager have gone to quilt camp for the weekend. There was a class going on last night - with Miss Sarah - so someone had to be available to cover the store and customers. Pick me! Pick ME!
I hadn't signed up to take the class, and it was full so there weren't any kits left. Darn - it was a super cute page too! But I was there and the the project sample was ... right there ... begging. Lift me. Lift ME!
It was just a matter of figuring out which paper to use. And as it turned out, this Simple Stories Elementary paper line had just come in. Choose me! Choose ME!
Talk about a load of coincidences - right? So I managed not only to feature the store's new paper line, I got a wonderful had-forgotten-all-about-it photograph scrapped. And to add to the fun - I got paid for playing! Man, it just doesn't get any better than that!
