Hey Jude

Yesterday I made a trip to M's to try to find some ancestry papers. It's the ancestry.com heritage line (which apparently is being discontinued). I've been working on several family trees, and hoping to 'match' everything up so it flows in one album. Anyway, I messed up one of the charts and had to start over on that family branch. NO more charts left. I couldn't find the paper I wanted anywhere. But there was a really cool DCWV stack called Family Bound. I looked through it... beautiful paper, charts, trees, tags... everything I need. 19.99... and it didn't look like it was discounted like the other stacks on the shelf. I decided to get it anyway. Now here comes the jackpot! lol Sorry this is so long.
When I went up to the check out I told the girl I wasn't sure if it was 40% off like the other stacks. She said it was ringing up at 5.99. I said, you mean it's 5.99 off? No, it's ringing up at 5.99. I said, hang on I'm getting more! lol
I picked up three stacks... I'll have enough to do ALL the family lines. I spent all afternoon yesterday working on a beautiful tree.
I'm one happy genealogy scrapper.

I had found one pack of that ancestry.com paper at Tuesday morning a while back. It wasn't the chart, it was a whole pack of the same paper, but it was gorgeous! That's too bad it's discontinued.

Isn't it a fantastic feeling when you get a great deal when you were not even looking for it? I love it!

Awesome! Can't wait to get started on my family tree albums. I've been collecting layouts on Pinterest for that project.

Great deal!


I'm going to be the wet towel here. This is ANOTHER reason I detest Michaels! It is notorious for its mismarking and pricing.

I will bet there are TONS of items throughout the store that you would stock up on, if the price were clearly marked!
