I guess I can pack a lunch and come check out all the new stuff next week! I'd love to come to the make n take (it's super cute) but I'll be @ a crop in Derby. I can't wait for the new line and the 52 More Challenges book (although I think I should get the first book too) to be back in stock... sounds like something fun for my scrap group to do this summer :)
