I went to a crop and inadvertently packed ALL of my foam adhesive. Not a big deal, I'm bringing it all home again anyway, right? Except now I can't find it. I know I had it when I packed up my tote. I put all my adhesive together in one pocket, and emptied that pocket as soon as I got home. I've worked on a few layouts since and USED some pop dots... But now I need a couple squares--just TWO--to finish a layout and I can't for the life of me find them! They aren't where they 'go,' I didn't put them back in my tote, they're not out on my desk, they're not packed in the kit of supplies for this layout, they're just gone! I had like 4 sheets of pop dots and (I think) a little roll of foam adhesive with just about an inch left on it. this is driving me CRAZY!!

Any ideas???

Do you have any scraps from trimming the paper on the layout? If so pick them up and check underneath. My adhesive always ends up piled under my scraps.

Good Luck!

Probably with mine, which I suspect is the trash!

The little peels to cover the adhesive always come off; then, they stick to the underside of something (like a paper scrap) and get whisked away with the debris into the bin.

I refuse to buy more because this has happened so many times.

I noticed today they make pop up adhesive "dots" on a roll...I wonder how those work?

Maybe hanging with my 3 packages of glue dots since they are cousins.
Forgot, I lost them after the crop also.

Oh, you put them somewhere really good, remember? You were packing your thinsgs and talking to that other nice woman and you made that split decision to put yout pop dots between/under/in...

I myself can put something down right next to me and then it will be lost for 6 months, until I buy it again. Then I will find it. If you buy some new ones, you'll probably find your old ones again. Trust in Murphy's law!

(I once had a sheet of foam squares stuck to my back... true story...)

These things happen. Just consider it a sacrifice to the scrapbooking gods. Kind of like the socks in the dryer. You may find them. But not until you are looking for something entirely different. LOL>
