And the winner is ...
Congratulations to Robin Swederske, winner of our Scrap Tales Shopping Spree! She immediately made her way to her favorite department at Scrap Tales - Inks and Tim Holtz - filling her basket with beautiful colors of the new Twinkling H2o's then plenty of Tim Holtz Idea-logy. When time ran out and items tallied the total was nearly $300. Way to go Robin! Can't wait to see what you create with all her winnings.
Robin is in good company with past winners Pat Roemmele who was our very first Spree winner in May 2006 and Terry Harmon, winner of the Spree in 2007. It's always a good time to come out and cheer them on and take advantage of other specials at that time. All-in-all it was a full day of fun and savings!
