15 hour Crop .... 'til you drop

All day yesterday and ALL night...15 hours to be exact...I headed over to Springfield to crop with a group of ladies at the Paper Boutique, a New Scrapbook store owned by two really great friends!!! What a fun time, although i only got a few layouts finished, i had such a great time scrapping with all these girls, and met some awesome new friends too. Three other moms at the crop were also parents to Twins!!! it was so cool sharing stories and learning what i have to look forward to!! As always at crops, I ate myself sick,they had the best food and we were treated like royalty!! :) Lunch consisted of Awesome Turkey sandwiches from a local deli type place, they were huge, and chips, fruit, and cookies!, then snacks were put out... I ate crackers, cheese , cr. cheese dip, and about a dozen mini candy bars, then came dinner...uugh, like i was EVEN hungry by this time...but how could i pass up..Parmesean Chicken, angel hair spaghetti, salad, green bean and rolls!!! Then more desserts, cookies and brownies!!! yummy and well worth driving all that way to play with them all!! I love to see everyone's different scrap styles and there was even a BOY there...yep you read right...a BOY!! It was the most awesome thing, it was an older couple that came in together and i thought he was just helping his wife in with her stuff, then he put on his apron and i couldn't beleive it, this guy meant business!!! And his scrapbooks were AMAZING!!! they were prob. close to age 70's, how awesome that they have this hobby to share together!!!..and it didn't even phase him when at 7pm all the women took their bras off!! ha, NO, i will not be recruiting Joe however, this is my time away with my girls, but it really warmed my heart! Wish i had taken my camera, so i could share their photo with you.... But all i have to share are a few pics of the layouts i comepleted.... Enjoy your long weekend....why not try something Crafty?? oh and if you are in the area, head over to Paper Boutique and check out all their wonderful scarp products and sign up for a crop, I'll be going back for sure.... :)

This final layout was designed by Corynn (owner of the store) she was nice to help me get some of my photos onto pages.... :)
