A croppin I will go

Why is it every time I go to my mother's to crop I feel the need to somehow shove every bit of everything I can possibly fit into my suitcase and then panic that I will need something I didnt bring? I mean seriously... Im going to maybe a 3 hour crop. That is usually 3 layouts most of which are created with my current dt kit. But I obsess! I obsess AND make a mess of my scraproom in the process. Im digging out stamps and paint (like it will have time to dry.. hello) punches and tools. I could stop the insanity right now just by zipping up the bag... but I wont.

Fathers Day was so nice. I stopped to see my stepdad for a bit then headed over to a cookout at my brothers. I got to hold my wiggly lil nephew for awhile and enjoy the food and sunshine. My brother lives close to the municipal airport where there was an airshow. We had our own private view of all the planes from his backyard. We didnt need to hear what they were... my dad already knew and would tell us as they flew by. (he really loves anything with an engine) It was a wonderful day.

Here are a few layouts using the last Poppy Ink kit. Sassafras Lass (my favorite!!) and heidi swapp! Hello... how can you go wrong there?? Dont my nieces look sweet covered in MUD?

Lol, I do the SAME thing when packing for a crop...I agonize over every little thing and berate myself for being so indecisive. :)

Holy CRAP, girl, I LOVE your pages! The one titled "The Next Day" made me laugh out loud!

Cute LOs. Do you always do 8x11?

I am guilty of overpacking for crops too. I take ALL my PP and CS in a rolling crate and then another bag for tools and an accordian folder for alphas and rubons and a plastic tote for embellies. I at least only have embellies for the theme of album I am working on in the tote.
I crop away from home 90% of the time so I always have it all packed.

great pages!
I think that's one reason I don't go to crops much - I would have no CLUE what to pack. lol.
