Over the summer months, the closest scrapbook store to my house (roughly 21 miles away) has been hosting crops every Wednesday from 10am to 6pm.
If you attend the crop there has been a modest fee of $2 and everyone is asked to bring a snack to share with the group. That's a pretty sweet deal in itself. However the owner generously gives each attendee a small gift in the $2 range so the crop is basically free.
Plus she supplies water, pop and chocolate. And each attendee gets 15% off their (regular priced) purchase that day. WOW! Talk about a fantastic deal!
So that's what I've been doing most Wednesdays this summer.
Another activity that the store sponsors is a monthly layout contest. The store's customers vote on their favorite layout during the month, then the winner is announced and receives a small prize. This month I was the winner! WOO WEE! I was totally flattered.
Unfortunately I don't have a photo of my winning page. It's still on display at the store.
I can give you a peek at the layout I submitted for August though. I know I'm a little early in entering but Son had emailed me some pictures I'd requested and I couldn't wait to put the page together.
So I used the following 4 pictures with the title of " 'Girlie's name' found her Prince Charming and his name is Daddy."
Here's what the page looks like all put together. Although you probably can't see it, there's lots of glitter all over the page. For those of you who scrapbook - I think you might call me the queen of Stickles. I just can't get enough of that product!
Friday there's a scrapbooking convention in Tulsa. Guess where I'll be . . .
