Shopping our Stash #98 - Dollar Store/Bargain Bin


Holy moly - challenge #98 at Shopping our Stash! This time around we want you to...


use something you got at a ridiculously low price!

Got it at the dollar store? At a garage sale? (where are these crafty garage sales anyhow...not in my neighbourhood, lol!). At Michaels in the dollar bin ($1.50 in Canada)? Use it! AND TELL US WHAT IT IS :) 
I even took a picture of the price tag on mine - I scored 4 or 5 of these insanely detailed embellishments from Jolee's years ago, at Wal-mart. LOOK:


70 cents!?! I hoarded most of these for years, because I never could find papers that matched them well. This is the last one, because guess what? I can use white space now. (pats self on back):

Supplies: Jolee's carousel; Mrs. Grossman's birthday sticker; Martha Stewart scoreboard

This Shopping our Stash challenge is open until next Monday, April 29th - hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!

I hope you have a fabulous day :) I'm going to go get crafty!
xoxo,
Jessi
