Another Layout!

This layout will be the other part of the LO below. I hand cut the sun, used a punch for the eyes, and a parenthesis for the mouth. The type is "Jumbo" from Lyrical Letters. Cut at 1", only lowercase letters.

Crop has come and gone!

Had a wonderful time at the crop. I arrived just as Barb was getting there. We picked out tables for the three of us, and set up shop. Sharon arrived about 2:30. The food was great (potluck), and got to see what different women were making. There were 20 of us at this crop. One woman was working on vintage/heritage pages, one was working on pictures of her grandchildren and using Toy Story stickers. Sharon was working on Freedom Honor Flight pictures, and Barb was working on "1993" pictures. I managed to (mostly) make 9 pages. A couple of my pages didn't get completed because I was either missing embellishments, journaling, or a couple pics. I felt I did well, under the circumstances. I'll post those later.

The title comes from the Cricut Carousel cart, cut at 1". Use full pressure, but slow down the cut. Comes out better. Peanuts were made with a DS design from Okie, embossed with Cuttlebug Mini Mosiac embossing folder, and DTP with oregano ink.

The crop is getting closer!

Two days to go before my first crop. I'm pulling things together to work on, but not entirely confident I'm taking what I need for a 12 hour crop. How many pages do I plan for? One per hour? Well, I have another full day, and Friday morning to decide. Some of it is already waiting. Hmmmm....

Going to my first crop!

Barb & Sharon & I are going to a crop in a couple weeks. Those girls have been to several before - not me, it will be my first. I'm asking everyone what to take, and what to make. I've got a good idea what I will work on, so will set up some page kits.  It will also be a potluck crop, so I need to take something food-wise.
