A Beautiful Distraction
I found a new scrapbooking challenge blog called These Are a Few of My Favorite Things and this week's challenge is to scrap your favorite store.
Obviously I love reading so I have to go with Bookmans! (I bet you thought I was going to pick Target!) Luckily I took the photo I used of the store about a year and a half ago so I could post it on LibraryThing. At the time there wasn't a photo of Bookmans to go with the listing. Since then a girl on there keeps taking mine down and putting hers up, but I think mine is way better, don't you?
That photo to me says it's 115 degrees outside.
Anyway, I heard that since the roof collapsed on the Bookmans in Flagstaff and it won't be fixed until fall, they are still paying their employees until it gets fixed. How awesome is Bookmans?!
Also they are the only bookstore in town that gives teachers a discount even if the books are not for your class. Every time I get my discount I feel like they are saying, We understand and we love you. It's like a little hug in the form of money.
Back to my scrapbook page, my favorite part of my favorite store page is where I changed the banners the sparrows are holding to say Favorite Store instead of Forever & Always. I busted out the light box and traced over it onto another piece of paper and then tried to copy the cursive style. Good times.
What's your favorite store?
