National Scrapbooking Day is coming... to Valencia!

Hey, hey, good lookin... what 'cha got cooking?
Okay, I know... cheeeezy title! But I have to admit, that song was running through my head and out my lips this afternoon as I was deciding which bits of goodness to share with all of you. If you are around me too much, you will quickly find out that God did not gift me with a beautiful singing voice; however, instead, with a great desire to sing. Loudly. Also, the gift to type quickly. :) But that's enough about me... let's get on to the GOOD stuff!

Click your heels three times and say... There's no Cardstock like Bazzill... There's no Cardstock like Bazzill...That's right! Remember When is officially carrying a full line of Bazzill cardstock. With well over 300 colors (yes, THREE HUNDRED!) you'll be certain to find that just-so-right shade that you are looking for! I am so excited! Come in to see the rainbow of beautiful colors! We'll still be carrying a limited supply of Worldwin cardstock for the time being.
