Scrapping The Music and Post-Crop News...

OMG the 16-hour crop was so much fun! It was great to have our whole group of scrapping friends together again! We try to crop together every month, but you know how life is, it's hard to get everyone together at one time - and it had been awhile. But this month we did it and it was awesome! Here we are...In the back row (left to right) is Jess, Karla and Lynn. Front row is Christina and me. It's fun to go to a new location sometimes. This scrapbook shop had a number of neat things about it. One thing they did that I enjoyed was have spontaneous sales. For instance, not long after we got there, they told us that we had 15 minutes to look around the store, and pick one thing we would like to see on sale. Then we could put our vote in the hat. Then the store owner picked an item out of the hat - it happened to be patterned paper - and ALL PATTERNED PAPER IN THE ENTIRE STORE was 40% off for an hour. Fabulous fun!

I also liked the atmosphere which was friendly and fun - lots of laughing and chatting between tables. I love that.

I got quite a bit of catch-up work done in my Project 365 album, plus a couple of challenge layouts, which I will post tomorrow.

Most of all it was just great to have the group together and have lots of time to chat and catch up with everyone's life. I can't wait til next month's crop!

The new song at Scrapping the Music is "Made to Love" by Toby Mac. It's a fun, upbeat song with lots of Scrapping Possibilities! Here's the layout I made...

I used the SiSTV Night Owl collection again (I am loving that collection lately!); plus some paint, orange and grey cardstock and a white sharpie. Oh, and alpha stamps by Stampin Up. The photo was taken on a sunset walk in our neighborhood.

Come on over to Scrapping The Music and join in the fun!

I hope you had a great weekend my friends!

I am looking forward to the week ahead! I will be back tomorrow!

I am so thankful I get to crop weekly with some good friends. Our LSS isn't the greatest, but it's really about getting together & laughing (sometimes more than cropping)!

Those spontaneous sales sound like fun! Glad you were able to crop.
