things I have made with the Paper Place's paper!!!

Almost didn't know where to beginning! More can be seen HERE on my flickr page. The Paper Place is my happy place :)

OH MY OH MY CONTEST - The Paper Place (or my land of happiness)

So it's pretty well established that I'm a big time lover of paper. I love working with it and as a visual junkie it's definitely my "drug" of choice. This means that the Paper Place is like my own personal mecca. Walking into the store make me happy. There's so much to choose from it can be overwhelming but my visits always start with a walkabout and then lead to my favourite thing - the Scrap Bags. When ever I can used found objects or recycled goods in my cards, I'm a happy girl... it's also quite cost effective for me since I'm back in school. So the scrap bags are ideal because the Paper Place creates these packages of end strips or smaller pieces in a mixed bag of fun. On the TTC ride home I can't restrain myself from going through the package and seeing what kinds of things have been included. I've also noticed that they've started back up with workshops so I'm looking forward to taking a look at them for the new year. So i was overjoyed when I heard about this amazing contest...
