What a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon!

We had such a fun afternoon yesterday at the Leeds Scrapstore - we all went, Matt, me and the girls and met up with lots of lovely people such as Kirsten, Mich, Tracey and others including Louise who runs the scrapstore. We managed a good rummage through the stock, a good natter and of course, some tea and cake! The girls also had a rummage and then made things with what they had found.

There are lots of lovely bins and shelves to rummage through.

There are lots of things to look at - I love that heron!

Look at the giraffe and the chandeliers.

I was good and resisted the buttons (but didn't resist some fabulous fabric!)

Kirsten and Matt having a good natter!

Two busy crafters!

It was a great day out and come Septemeber when I will have full school days to myself I will venture over again :)
