Crop News Round Up!!!

Well my crop last weekend was a great success! A good time had by all and I was amazed at all the LOs these talented ladies produced ! I 'm sorry that I didn't take more photos { don't know why cuz that is sooooo unlike me!} and unfortunately some of my photos came out a bit blurry...a few ladies really didn't want their photos taken { you know who you are!} and for some reason I missed a few girls and for that I apologize. Here are a few snaps from the day...

Tracey seemed to have a really good time and got lots accomplished that day!

Shirley actually remembered to bring her supplies this time! { Though I've already warned her that she had better be WELL prepared for the crop she and I will be attending in Springdale next month or she had better bring some Ativan for ME!!!!}LOL

Tara  and Tammy were creating beautiful double page spreads . This was Tara's first time at the crop and she seemed  to enjoy herself. Tammy is an old pro and we were glad to have her back for this crop!\

Two other "newbies" to my crop were Sabrina and Jennifer { tho certainly not newbies to scrapping overall!}. Jennifer was actually the lucky duck who won a year's subscription to Canadian Scrapbooker magazine by participating in the Sketchy challenge. Congrats Jennifer!

                                    Little old me!

 But here's the best participant photo...It's Susan and Barb and their cool scrap T-shirts they made!Check out what's written on them! Aren't they cute { both the girls and the shirts LOL}? And by the way , Susan, I'm still waiting for my T-shirt...nudge nudge wink wink!

 So....did I actually get much scrapping done at my own crop????'re kidding right?I spent alot of time helping the girls with the machines{ Cricut, cuttlebug etc} , offering my 2 cents when asked for , adding up bills [ those girls really like to shop!} and prepping snacks and meals...but there ya go...I WAS the hostess so I didn't really expect to get much done. My Stampin' Up rep, KATHY, dropped by for a couple of hours to get a start on her daughter's wedding album and she really enjoyed herself. She said it was sooooo different to be able to just sit there and play instead of instructing  as she does in all her classes. I'm glad you could get a little "me" time Kathy!

 I did however manage to get one Lo done ....using Graphic 45's gorgeous new Little Darlings line of paper. I 'll be doing lots with this paper line...I absolutely adore it!

 I just noticed!!!There are NO FLOWERS on this LO GASP!!!!! That is sooooo unlike me!This was my first time using the Martha Stewart "Cherish" punch around the page punch set. I just love it!  I have so many more plans for this paper ...did I mention I adore it??? LOL
PS This is Chelsea on her first birthday ...God love her, she was such a little baldy!

I 'd like to say congrats to the ladies who won the door prizes at the crop:

Tracey and Tammy won beautiful kits from ScrapThat! { a GREAT Canadian kit company !}

Susan A. won TWO prizes...a great  handmade crop garbage bag that  hangs on the edge of the table and a 5 pk of beautiful handmade cards graciously donated by my Stampin'Up rep, KATHY.

I'm having a little brain fart but I "think' it was Shirley who won the Quick Quotes card making kit.

 And as previously mentioned, Jennifer won the Year's subscription to Canadian Scrapbooker magazine.

I think pretty well everyone got to wear the LO princess crown and got to pick out of the prize box at some point during the day. Nobody went home empty handed.

Well that's it for tonight ladies . Thanks for dropping by. Wishing you all a blessed, peaceful and Happy Easter.
