Stamping Score!

I went to the Carson Stamping Convention this weekend and I scored the coolest grab bag ever! Just $30 for a huge bag from http://zettiology.com. How cool is that! It was so good I really wish I had splurged and got the second bag they had, but when I went back an hour later they were all gone! Here's the images I got—$150 worth of stamps for me. I spent my time on Sunday cutting them all out and mounting them. Forgive my sloppy indexing—I got a little lazy.It is fun to buy grab bags from good companies because it is like a treasure hunt! Matt was helping me look through them and we both though there was a stamp that looked like a map. Matt said it was probably Europe. I knew he had to be right, so imagine my surprise when I stamped it out and it was Albert Einstein! I laughed out loud! I am so glad I got two of him in the bag—I've always wanted an Albert stamp so now I have double!

Is that eye cool or what!? I had no idea what it was going to be. I thought maybe a sailboat or something. I stamped it and turned it around and around until it was the right side and there I saw the eye! Surprise!
The stamp with the Asian characters on the bottom left is what made me get this bag instead of the other one. I love Asian stuff so I thought it looked good. The other one had an Egypt stamp in it with Horus so I really wish I had that one too. But Asian is cooler than Egypt on the "Llama Cool Scale" ha ha!

owww Coool, what fun stamps you got in that bag. Had to laugh about the eye, I got that same eye in a giftbag once and didn't recognize what it was until stamped and turned and turned and turned *lol*

Oh my heck, that's a ton of stamps for $30. I'm so sorry that I didn't splurge on the gas to go this weekend. I'm definitely going in the fall now.
