Today cannot pass without remembering those who died on the fateful day 10 years ago. Although I was young, I do remember watching the events unfold and being horrified as people ran for their lives away from the collapsing buildings. So many brave people should not be forgotten.

I have come to blog about my new scrapbooking haul. I tried a different website, just to compare, but they wanted £19 just for postage and packing! Luckily, 123stitch pulled through and I got these beauties for the combined price of £6.68 ($10.65), much more reasonable for a student like me. I am quite happy to pay the £3.76 p&p they ask for, it's a good price. Anyway, here are my goodies . . .

One sheet of flocked stickers from K&Company (left) and two sheets of Dear Lizzy Thickers, these ones are all in beautiful greens and browns. Can't wait to do a page with these!
Next up are these gorgeous Remarks stickers called Etiquette. I had to snap these up, for only £1.24! There's lots of different colours so I hope to find lots of different ways to use them.

And lastly my most expensive purchase (but still a bargain at £2.94) is this pad of Distress Ink by Tim Holtz. I've seen some wonderful scrapbook pages using this product over at and I thought I'd give it a go myself. I'll let you know how I get on!

I've been doing a little bit of stitching, but not really that much. My mojo is still wandering. I am sorting through all my cross stitching stuff soon in preparation for Uni, so maybe that will kickstart my needle. I've decided to take my cross stitch tower with me, but I want to fill it with stuff I will actually use, not some of the junk I've been storing in there at the moment.
Just over a week to go before I set off for Uni! Can't wait!
I hope you all have a relaxing Sunday doing things you love.

Bekca, you have gotten some wonderful things there to help with your scrapbooking. You will just love the Distress Ink. Even a klutz like me when it comes to scraping has no trouble using it.
Blessings, Barbara

The memory of 9/11 will stick with all of us older enough to remember it at the time I think. And its something that touches each of us..

Oh, my, I'll bet it's hard to believe your time to leave for university is so near, Bekca!! I sure hope you have time to do a bit of stitching and/or scrapbooking while you're there. Looks like you got some nice goodies for your scrapbooking stash :)

Good luck with all your packing--you'll have a grand time at school!
