Good morning Dreamers! I have to tell you about our first all day crop at my new church (new cause I moved to Chicago). I met Diane at a Growth Group lunch (that's the Tuesday Bible Study) and knew we would be friends. You know, sometimes you can just tell? Well, as we talked a bit more over the weeks, we found out we were both scrapbookers. She invited me to crop at her former church with her. It was a good time (when is cropping not!), but a little awkward. I went a second time with her and then suggested that we start our own crop at Good Shepherd. Well, Saturday was the first day!
There were 6 of us last Saturday morning. We had so much fun!!! We had a great lunch provided by Diane. I even got 2 layouts done! Ok, one I'm not real thrilled with, it's a challenge in Creative Scrapbooking Divas. Pictures of activities during the preceeding month. I think that is for people with children or active lives. It snowed! That and the dog are about all I have to take pictures of! (I need to get a life, and then there would be more. . . putting that on my list of things to do)
But the continuing trip to Maine and back (it's only been 2 1/2 years!) was on my radar. I am determined to get it finished! So I got a layout about Niagra Falls done. It also was a challange in the Diva forum....NO PATTERN PAPER! The thought almost made me explode! I love strips, flowers, dots, SWIRLS!!! I thought it was going to be impossible! And you know, it can't be too simple or I can't wrap my mind around it. But, I did it!
