Ok, I will attempt to post pictures, so be patient.

These are the Basic Grey stuff I found and also some GCD Studios paper packs and stacks. If you're not familiar with GCD Studios paper, it is very similar to Chatterbox as far as the texture. They're really cool papers.

There are more that I didn't pick up - both BG and the GCD papers.

You are so lucky! I went there yesterday and mine only had the Halloween card kits. Either everything else was gone, or that was all they had gotten in! Enjoy yours!

Ours had it but I noticed that things arent $1 like before.. $3 for chipboard shapes? That's what they would normally be on sale for!

Mine didn't have the cool assorted packs, just big packs of all the same paper -- like for retailers.

But I did pick up a couple of cute BG stamps.
