Crop Day

I had just the most fabulous time at the crop yesterday - I know, I'm very very lucky to be able to count the amazing women at the crop as friends.  It's always very noisy, with us all trying to talk at once ... there is so much laughter, that yes on occasion we have been asked to keep it down, but of course - how is that possible! 

It's truly an amazing group, we all get on so well - and that's part of the reason I never really get anything done at crops ... I'm far too busy chatting, and well, starbucks is only a 2 minute walk away, so really I can't be blamed!.  Saying all that, I did manage a layout - ok, yes I did open up for 10 and close at 5 ... so maybe just one layout isn't enough, but hey, it's a start.  The flowers were received from my lovely hubby, this Valentines day.  

A thank you goes to Jo, for letting me use her bunting punch ... ok, in everyone elses world it would be a triangle - but in a scrappers world, we call it a bunting punch!


I also made a card for my sister-in-law's birthday which is tomorrow, it's ok, I can share it with you - she doesn't read my blog.

  1. Both pieces are great. The flowers you got were beautiful - super subject to scrap.

    Isn't it lovely when you can enjoy yourself at events like this.

  2. Both projects are fabulous - I just love bunting. The card is also lovely - I really like the tape measure. Am very jealous that you have such an enjoyable and social crop to go to. There is only one in my area and I can never get there! No wonder I get so many layouts done - I don't have any distractions! :)

  7. Sounds like you had a great time at the crop, I wouldn't worry too much about not getting too much scrapping done - I don't think you can beat a really good natter! Love the bunting on your layout, might have to look out for a 'bunting' punch myself....

  8. Lovely layout and card. I get very little done at our crops as I seem to spend too much time eating and talking LOL - thank goodness we don't have a Starbucks close by.
