My First Crop

So this weekend I went to my first crop ever! A bunch of us girls from over at
SIStv met up for an Illinois/Wisconsin crop, it was so fun to finally get to meet everyone in person. I was terrified that I wasn't going to have everything I needed so I kind of way overpacked, Bob had given me a Joann's gift card a couple of months ago so between it and a coupon I got a sweet deal on this....

I had to Martha-fy it with Jack Skellington of course :)

Speaking of cool people that I got to meet, I got to scrap next to Elly!

...and her gnome :)

I can't believe how much I got done! I did my next Category Stories LO, I did 2 more LOs with the October My Favorite Memories kit and did a couple for myself

^^That's my starstruck friend Nancy along with her pug Aine and Olympic snowboarder Shaun White

I received my October Label Tulip kit on Saturday so I was able to take it with me on Sunday and I got 3 LOs done...here are a couple of sneaky peeks :)

I can't wait until we get to do it again!


Nan and B.A.G.S. the pug -aka Aine said...

*squee* okay ..no squee gosh darnit - blogger ate my comment to you.

PMed Cricket... an email might be going out for the next crop at archivers... you in?!

Was it not seriously fun OR what.

*shakes fist at my joannes* check my blog... my wheely is a bastard stepchild to yours let me TELL YOU. Granted, I did get it for a steal so I will have to doctorate it with muchos's ...something. Don't think stickers will cut it though... Hmm.

OH. Can I just say the LO of moi and the shaunster ROCKS? Of course I am biased. *hee* Also the PIXIE IS THE BOMB man! Her dress fits her PERFECTLY. HUGS! Nan

I understand that you scrapped... but did you kill as many zombies and vampires as you could?
And does Mugsy get to be a lobster?I would love to see a LO of that.

I blame this post on the plague that I have.
