Grandson Dylan and friend Micheal

My grandson Dylan is here for the summer visiting from Alaska. Last weekend we took him and his friend Micheal to the Seattle Center for some fun. They enjoyed rides (I went on 1) playing games and they each won something and playing in the water fountain. We all had a great time. One of the things they liked best was lunch in the food court because everyone got to eat what they wanted. Dylan says there is no fast food in Haynes. He had Subway. Well have a great day and I will write again tomorrow.

Ribbons can be just that little touch to your cards and scrapbook pages without a lot of cost. So many colors and styles to choose from, and you can purchase them by the foot, also remember that most of the ribbons (excluding adhesive back) I cut a 13" foot. So come on in and pick up a few feet to add to your creations today. We have a crop this Sunday and lots of room, so sign up and join the fun!

Well the 4th is over and I know in my neighborhood it was pretty loud and colorful. I went to some friends for a BBQ, lots of good food. I hope your day turned out fun and safe for everyone. We are open today usual hours and do have many of our Sizzix still going on the 40% off tables in the back. In order to build the die cut center I have to buy the Sizzix in 3's, so why not pass on savings to you and get things moved to add others. Take a look at the sides of the blog we will be adding new sections to let you know winners for drawings and contests and what the special of the week is and some of our kits. New things are always happening here at Lila's and if you have other ideas or suggestions to improve our store here in Everett we will be more than happy to hear them. I want this to be our store not mine and a happy place for people to come and make new friends and have fun while being creative. Have a great day!!
