I'm getting quite the chuckle from some of these Blog Candy comments!
Don't forget that TODAY is the LAST DAY to post comments for Blog Candy. Leave your LOVE & HATE comments here.
Here's a couple I just had to reply to:

LOL! I want to ask Linda if it's her kids or other people's kids that she doesn't like. I know that when I shop my disruptive & screaming kids aren't desirable either - and my kids are 12 & 14 years old!!! They HATE browsing in stamp stores and the little play area just doesn't appeal to them anymore.

I saw THE SAME THING at one of our local stamp stores (I won't "out" the store but I can tell you that it's NOT my LSS - ScrapArts). I thought the stamps looked familiar but it was the lady shopping beside me that commented on them being Michaels' stamps. She asked me if she should say something to the owner and I discouraged her from doing so. I'm sure the owner knows where she buys her own stamps from and I didn't think anything would be gained by "outing" her. Maybe I shouldn't have said that but I'm often torn in these kind of situations - I worked retail a lot in my life. Maybe they just got them from the same supplier??
Sorry that's it for today.
I've got company coming for a BBQ tonight and I still have to sweep the back patio.
I won't have any time to stamp today but hope to get a few challenges done tomorrow. I've printed off Lauren's at My Time, Beate's at Fresh & Fun and Jen's at Pieces of Me.
Why don't you join me and try some of these challenges for yourself!
