Crop for the Cure!

Life has been great lately in my scrapbooking world. I recently went on a girls weekend and then, here it is, only 2 weeks later and I had 12 hours of scrapbooking in St. Jacobs at the Schoolhouse Theater for Crop for the Cure. Joanne and I have attended this event for the past 2 or 3 years and it is always nice to get out and hang out with my friends. I think almost everyone in the room were customers of ours, which was really nice to see.

So after 12 hours, you would expect lots of layouts right? Well, I did 2 single page layouts, and a card. I also put the finishing touches on a third single page, but really it wasn't much. It was a very low key, non stressful day.

My Grandbend layout was created using the Breaking Free line from My Minds Eye. I also used chipboard letters from Maya Road. We were all having a great time using the Tattered Angels mists. Karan and Joanne were even giving demos outside on the steps. It was fun.

This layout is a mix of stuff. Papers from Crate Paper and Breaking Free, and tickets from Breaking Free. The coolest were the flowers from Prima that Karan lent me from her stash. I had seen them before, but didn't quite know what to do with them. With a little guidance from Karan and Joanne they worked out great. We will be ordering these for the store for sure.

The last layout was created for my submission for the 52 Sketches 52 Weeks weekly sketch challenge. This is sketch #22 and I had a lot of fun working with it.

This is my take on it. I used photos that were 4 years old. It was great reflection time and I am very pleased with the results. Everytime I walk by my scrapbook desk I stop and look at it. That is how I know I am happy with my creation.

This week I have to get going on my Scrapper's Island challenge and I have the June product challenge kit too. Hopefully I will have another productive week and I will post my creations when they are done. Thanks for looking!
