An International Crop......

Hi Folks,hope your having a good weekend,I had a great day yesterday at the crop. We had an international crop as Lisa was over from Germany and also two girls from Thailand,who were staying with Libby over the school holidays. The two young girls had never scrapbooked before and they took to it like duck to water,they got more finished than I did !!! We also had a few new ladies which is always nice to see.

I gave you a sneak peek of my card that I was doing for card class,here is the full reveal.



All products are from Stampin'Up,I used Sweet Stitches paper and Sew Lovely stamp set.

I've always took a sketch to the crop for anybody who wants to join in but last month I've started doing a scraplift too. This month we've scraplifted a LO by Theresa, a very talented lady and one of the founders of the challenge blog Scrapbookers Anonymous.Don't forget to take a look at this month's challenge over there and use up some of your 6x6 paper stacks.

Here's Theresa's original LO:



and here's my take on it.


I managed to do one more LO at the crop using a Sketchy Thursday sketch,which I will show you tomorrow.

Here are a few photo's of our picnic at Bridgnorth on Friday, the sun shone all day and we a great time,so I hope you don't mind me sharing it with you.








Thanks for looking and leaving me such lovely comments, I really appreciate each and every one.

Deb, i forgot you were scraplifting me...your layout is fabulous. I love the buttons. Sounds like you were productive at your crop. I've been a bad blogger and a few days behind.
