The BEST Sunday ever!

Today I was at a "ALL DAY SCRAP CROP", which was soooooooo much fun. It was only $20, lasted from 9:30-5:30 and there was about 25 of us there. It was in a big multi purpose "hall", run by the Military Families. Basically it was license to scrap, all day, no interuptions, no kids. There was a big table of "garage sale" items, free items, and a portable store there as well. Not to mention all the other girls' albums, which are chock a block full of inspiration. I managed to get all of Hayley's kindergarten pages done (which did not require a lot of talent, just some cut and paste, assembling some order from the shoe box to the memory album), four layouts for Quinn (her first steps - I am THAT far behind), and the beginnings of a generation album. It is a 8 X 8 album, and in it we are doing all the family surrounding us with all the offspring that we have created. Basically a album of family. I was very proud of my accomplishments. I even won a door prize, which was enough paper and supplies for 8 Christmas pages, as well as a album (sadly not the same size as the paper, but beautiful on it's own).

It was so uplifting to go and do something for my own creative necessity. I met some wonderful people there, got inspired to continue on, and most importantly, recharged my scrap batteries. I cannot wait until the next one!!!

Awesome. I am so jealous. Can't remember the last time I went to an all day crop, yes I can, it was 4 years ago. Glad you got so much done, I wouldn't have. I would have spent all my time chitchatting. Hope I get to see it one day.
