home from crop camp...


home from crop....



Let the unpacking rituals begin!!!  At least, unlike Expo, not a lot of shopping was done...only the little Owl bag represents a Joanne's run on Saturday morning.  Of course, I was the one who did not NEED anything...but the one who spent the most...can you say SALE!  ha!

One of the gals is a part of the design team for this group, Craftin Desert Divas  
She was working on a couple of projects...so if course, I had to buy a set of stamps that feature a mermaid this morning and some sequins.
of course.

There were 12 of us, 11 scrapbookers/ paper crafters  and 1 sew-er.  They are still there, I had to leave a day early, as I could not get today off.  I actually have tomorrow off, as I have a series of appointments throughout the day.  Including dr's for a blood test, just the regular fasting blood test for cholesterol...a pedicure (squeezed that one in) and dentist.

So, had to leave early, but got the chance to visit with Michele, my friend from high school days.  She lives just one exit away from the campgrounds.  Always so good to see her.  She is one of those friends that even if it is 6 months between seeing each other, we pick right up as though it was just yesterday.  Sure do love her and her family.

Of course, there was no getting good sleep hours at the crop.  The first night stayed up till 11, the next 10 (I am someone who goes to bed at 8, normally).  But of course, when you are my age, there is no sleeping in...up between 5 and 6...siiiiiiigh.  So came home exhausted!!!  Getting these out of the car was a huge accomplishment.  My stuff takes the back seat and the 'trunk'.  I could never drive with someone to one of these...well, maybe Michele, as she would just have one bag.  She is just not the collector that I am.  In fact, we are talking bout her coming out in June to scrapbook. (in my cave)


I did 29 layouts.  Though some I shouldn't count.  You know how it is, your first few are terrific, done and embellished...but toward the end of the night, you are lucky to get the papers chosen and the  pictures down.  PLUS, you just don't  pack the embellies you need (I  cannot anticipate them)...sooooo, toward the end of the night, those layouts need finishing touches.

I'll take pics and post as I get them unpacked.  Got a little done this morning before work...
