a 1 layout crop...but made some cards.

What I accomplished at crop...siiiigh.  Only one layout... there were 4 of us, and 3 out of 4 were 'newbies' so what I did was show them card techniques and let them take off and craft.  So, between that and food prep and running to get them supplies...I only had one layout.  BUT did almost 12k steps!!  so the day was not a 'bust' AND had a great time getting to know my guests. 

We also had a mac and cheese potluck...which we doubled so we could share for fellowship the next day.  One gal made hers with ground beef and 4 cheeses, I made mine in the crockpot and the young man...he is a future culinary student...so I gave him a 'chopped' style bag.   In it was spam, nopales, truffle oil, Dubliner cheese....his was my favorite...it came out with a sharp, smokey taste.

This was our first project...cricut cutting and embossing.   I am unhappy with my leaves, so that is being changed.  The young man actually already has a cricut ...for fondant cutting.  So he helped the others cut their images.    He spent the day figuring out the 3d flowers and boxes from my Art Philosophy cartridge.  He gave the after lunch 'lesson'...on how to roll the flowers!!!  It was great.

In the afternoon, we did stamping and coloring with gelatos.  The shark is from Newton's Nook.   I was the only one who did an ombre effect, the girls painted with the gelatos.  

Then we did alcohol ink...I did a plaid, 2 did the tie die effect and one did stripes...

So not a productive day for scrapbooking, but had other 'successes' and enjoyed it.   Still have my challenge list from 2 Peas Refugees...hopefully Saturday will be a good day for doing that.
