Sweet Saturday

The Sweet Shoppe's From Our Blog to Yours offered a challenge to find out what kind of shopper you are. Here are my results:

You Are a Reluctant Shopper

You really don't enjoy shopping. For you, it's just another chore.

You approach shopping systematically. You research what you're going to buy and come prepared with a list.

Of all the types, you are the most likely to not buy things you don't need.

You try to de-emphasize stuff in your life. You find shopping and buying things to be a rather empty experience.

Yeah, this is me. I've turned into a real frugal shopper - only get what I need and I really have to think hard as to do I really need it?

I have a layout to share today too - it's for the challenge at This week's dare was:
Must use kraft paper somewhere in your layout
Must use at least one b/w photo
Must have the lyrics/part of the lyrics or words from the song/quote/poem somewhere on your layout

and here's what I came up with - uses Penny Springmann's Perfect Pair with Brandy Designs called Sweetest Heart.

The kit can be purchased here and thru the 20th, there is a Free with Purchase gift (after the 20th, you'll have to purchase the add-on):

The layout also uses a bunch of other Penny products.

Well, I'm off - have to go get ready for a wedding this afternoon. It's a cold day in PA for a wedding but it's the daughter of a very close friend getting married and a blizzard would NOT keep me from attending!!!

See you again soon!

what a cute kit! I really have stopped buying too many kits! I have found if you follow their blogs you can get really nice freebies for free and stick to only buying something that just really really hits me!

your layout is absolutely darling!!!

Your layout is just gorgeous - and good for you to be a reluctant shopped and think about what you buy! I took the test and I'm an impulse shopper - most likely to be a shopaholic...which is completely true LOL

Cute layout. I am the cheapest shopper ever. I find more pride is finding some thing for .50 cents then buying an expensive outfit.
