Crop til You Drop . . . !!!

Hi Stampers!

Just got back from our spring crop retreat.  We've got a great group that meets twice a year, fall & spring, to get together and scrapbook for four days.  I love, love, LOVE these long weekends, because we all get our own table to spread our stuff out & don't have to put it away all weekend - but most of all, because of the fun ladies I get to hang out with.  I get pages and pages scrapped, and we laugh literally all weekend long!!

Here's me with some of my stuff, and my friends Rita (standing) and Debbie in the background:

Poor Deb broke her wrist several months ago & had to have surgery (see the sling?), but as you can see, that didn't stop her from coming along for our wild scrappy weekend!!  (As you can also see, I could give a hoot less about my hair & makeup on these trips - EEEEEKS!!!!)

This is one of my favorite pages this weekend:

I'm sure the kids in the photo with me were young enough to BE my kids, ha ha!!

Stampin' Up'! cardstock, in my opinion, is simply THE BEST when it comes to cutting out shapes on my Cricut machine.  The colors are vibrant, and the weight is just perfect.  As you can see on the above page layout, I tried to pull out some of the colors in the photo.  Can you guess any or all of the colors I used?

If you said Summer Starfruit, Gumball Green, Melon Mambo, Wisteria Wonder, and Perfect Plum - ding, ding, ding - you're the winner!  Would you like to come & check out how wonderfully our cardstock works in YOUR Cricut machine?  Give me a call or shoot me a text or email, and I'll be glad to meet with you to give you a little scrapbooking lesson!

Alright - I am EXHAUSTED - when we say "crop til you drop", we mean it.

Happy stampin'!
