Crops Make Us Silly

Ok, so sometimes we can get quite silly at crops.  We laugh so hard we cry, we sing, we eat, we have fun!  One of our croppers has a hubby who really likes to spoil us ladies and we never say no and really enjoy it!  Especially when it involves pastry.  He brought these to our last crop and lets just say our eyes popped out of our heads and they were actually the size of our heads!

And a couple group shots of the ladies who scrapped the day away:

Crop Challenges - The Latest

I love seeing the inspiration that comes from these challenges we give at our 12 hour crops.... The ladies have so much fun working on the same sketches, yet seeing how different they all come out!  The last crop we had was on Super Bowl Sunday - It was a blast and we have such a great group of women that get together to get creative! 

These are the sketches the ladies worked off of:

And here is the creativity that came through:

 Beautiful pictures here on Ellen's pages - Love that 4th of July paper from My Mind's Eye used for summer layouts!  She did a great job capturing the colors in the photos.
 Stephanie shared her two layouts using Crate Paper and Echo Park - Beautiful job on these - Of course she had to add some ric rac.
 Hillary did a fantastic job with all these great papers she had - She even did one of the layouts twice and they came out totally different... AWESOME.
 I love that Kara is a brand new scrapbooker and look at those pages!  She only started the Friday before the 12 hour crop and I think she did a great job!  A combination of Disney packs we have in the shop and My Mind's Eye.
 Kim's pages came out awesome.  They are both totally different themes and so great!  I love how she put the pictures in circles - She did a great job on these using Webster's Pages and Echo Park. 
 Shannon decided on doing one of the challenges and this is the one she chose.  Great job showing off her new nephew using Authentique.  I'm feeling inspired... How about you?

(I threw in a little Echo Park too)  Check out the sneak peek:
