I still need to unpack my bags from last weekend's crop. Here are two layouts I did at the crop. The first I added a title to yesterday (thanks Lorraine for your fun serif) and the playing cards (thanks Jenny). I'm loving the lowercase fun serif as much as the uppercase.
This layout was completed on Saturday, but the chipboard letters had come off. SO much for being self adhesive.
I think I've done a layout with all four Scrap Room kits this month, so will enter the "Get more pages done" challenge and unpack my bag from the crop.
Don't forget it's cybercrop weekend. I think I feel a trip to M&S coming on tomorrow.

sketch #7 from nycscraps. I know I've missed a few of the sketches, but one I haven't done and the others need to be photographed. Looking forward to the Mad Hatters cybercrop at http://www.ukscrappers.co.uk/boards/forumdisplay.php?f=281 this weekend and I need to get some part finished layouts completed before the fun starts.

I used a Scraproom kit from April to complete this Easter layout using nycscraps April sketch #2
I started two double layouts at the crop last night, one just needs dymo journalling. So I hope to finish them and a few more over the weekend at our crop tomorrow. See you at 10am.

I finished this Design Collective layout yesterday and apart from the wobbly sewing lines I'm pleased with it. Today after quilting I'll work on NYCscraps sketch #2 which I started at Lorraine's card class last night. Now where did I put the photo I printed out?
Tomorrow night is scrapbooking at Georgetown Methodist Church Hall from 8pm or is it 7.30 pm.

I finished the Disneyland Paris album in it's entirety. I've covered the outside of the album, done the journalling, written on all the blank tags. Yeah, It's ready to put on display.
My Scrap Room kit did arrive yesterday, so I've made a start on the Design Collective page using the green scalloped paper using a photo from 2003. I tried doing it last night at quilting as the page includes some sewing but everyone wanted to look at the photo. I'll take it to Card class tonight as well.

Here is a photo of the altered LOVE letters I made for Claire's birthday which I will give her tonight. I added burgundy ribbon to the L and V after I took the photo.
I have also done sketch #4 of the NYCscraps class. I meant to use the pink flowered side of the double sided Scenic Route paper, but I stuck the wrong side down and decided to go with it!!
Something that did arrive in the post was the American Crafts album to finish off the Disneyland Paris album I did at Scrap fever, so that is what I'm hoping to achieve today.

I'm waiting for my scrap room kit to arrive as I have earmaked two for current projects:
* One of this week's Design Collective projects uses the green scalloped paper from the Karen Russell kit; and
* I fancied doing an Easter layout with the Heidi Grace kit and nycscraps April sketch #2
Hopefully it'll arrive on Monday. Elizabeth is impatiently waiting for a bear someone from UKScrappers has tracked down for her and posted yesterday. Getting her off to school on Monday could be fun.
My car is being picked up by Jacksons on Monday so I'll have plenty of time to scrap if my kit arrives. The electrics have gone after the battery packed up and the onboard electrical system won't speak to the diagnostics machine. So apart from internal lights and not being able to lock the car, filling up with petrol meant breaking out the handbook to see how to manually release the filler cap. We made a very funny sight at the garage.
Celebrating Central Park's last evening last year. Photos didn't come out brilliantly but they tell the tale. Nycscraps sketch #3 and Scrap Room March kit from Polar Bear Express.
If anyone wants and different Autumn Leaves stamps let me know and I'll place another order.

I so enjoyed the March 1 in 48 class at http://www.nycscraps.com/ that I decided to subscribe for the April class too, so here's my version of sketch #1 Using more Basic Grey Blitzen. I don't have much of this pack left apart from the letters and takeaway box which is very satisfying.
I also used my new Heidi Swapp stamps for this layout and my new SEI pearl brads guy and the Autumn Leaves Christmas seals. Lorraine tells me she's already used the journalling block stamps too.
I had a panic this afternoon, which Lorraine arrived in the middle of, I couldn't find my Quickutz bag. I wouldn't like to have to admit to Nick what the value of the contents is!! But I remembered when I'd last had it so I know who has the bag which is a huge relief. It also forced me to use my Craft Robo to cut the lettering for my layout.
