I will admit it; I was naughty. The craft show pulled me in. The paper...it was calling out to me. I could not help myself; I fell off the wagon. What makes it worse is that the paper here is really expensive! Maybe I have been out of the US for too long, but the majority of it was $1.50 a sheet. Of course, being that I have a sixth sense for paper on sale, I found a vendor who had BasicGrey for 50 cents a sheet.
Funny story on the sale paper, it was advertised at 10 sheets for 580 yen. Of course, not being able to read the sign, I did not realize you had to buy in increments of 10 sheets. So, the lady checking me out told me I had to either put 2 pieces away...or get 8 more. Heh. Seriously?! One guess on the option I chose!
Kuretake is just one of the many vendors who had papercraft stuff. The paper went all the way around, as if to torment me.
Besides a stack of paper, this is what I came home with.
Do you like my make and take?! It was so much fun! A friend and I made it in a class of all Japanese ladies. The instructors were so nice! They actually had a lady who could translate, but in reality we all speak the same language when it comes to scrapbooking!
More to come...
