The result of speed shopping at Laines

It's really amazing how much we are tempted to buy when "forced" to speed shop! Especially when there is a time limit of only 3 minutes. And unbelivably, in 3 minutes, I managed to chalk up a whooping SGD$160!! And that is the amount AFTER DISCOUNT!!!
Ooooo!! How not to buy out the whole range of Doodlebug's glittered flower papers??
Jenny Bowlin's shaped CS Paper. I have no idea how or why I ended up with 2 pieces of this. When Nancy (Laines) asked if I wanted to put it back (she was so nice!) I told her never to mind. Course if my hands took 2 pieces, then it must be because I will need 2 pieces! She could not stop laughing at my pathetic excuse for getting 2 of the same thing!
So tweet! They have the same berries as my K&CO Berry Sweet papers!
Who needs more ink? Not me for sure! So how did I end up with 3 more ink pads? Must be the scrapbook muse that put it in my basket!

This is Lou's gorgeous Prima Crystals. I had wanted the same set for myself too, but luckily or unluckily, I forgot to put an extra set in my basket! Hee hee! So I only had the black swirls.
Here's the stash of MMBI stickers of which I grabbed 6!! And since each cost $9.90 before discount, that added to the bulk of my cost. But I just could not resist it la!! Then there was the Prima flowers which I could have done without, but of course which I still bought...... The sweet and lovely DaisyDs tags, the irresistable Thickers (miraculously I only grabbed 2!!) and the MUST HAVE Maya Road Chipboard Birds and Blossoms.
Close ups of my MMBI stickers and Maya Road Chipboard ....... I must have been MAD!!
Papers!! How could I not get them?! The gorgeously flocked Anna Griffin papers. I cant even begin to describe how lovingly I ran my hands through the papers. I ended up getting 2! Anyone wanna share??!!
Then there was the Hambly transparencies. I began a love affair with them when I did a full Hambly transparency album in black and white. Sigh......
So, have I justified my SGD$160 purchase??!! I hope I have, cos I think I'll be going down again with J on Monday.........

I don't mind getting a set of those gorgeously flocked Anna Griffin papers. Are you willing to sell them ? :)
Drooling over your shopping!
