Crop hangover!

Im back from the crop! It was so much fun. We ate, we laughed, we cropped, we swapped, we shared flower tutorials and we went SHOPPING. I cannot wait to do it again. Kris needs to move to Ohio!!

Friday night late I made a few gift bags for the gals coming Saturday morning to be filled with scrappy goodies.  I snapped a quick pic in the crappy lighting of my mom's basement but you can at least see them here. Fingers crossed my mom got better photos with her SLR.



I used a bunch of cheapo (like 35 cents) red paper bags and the delicious Ala Carte line from American Crafts that I had to have 2 years ago (um because it's gorgeous)  I bought a TON of it. It matched the bag perfectly! I made the big ruffled flower.... and now Im addicted to them! I probably made 15 this weekend and showed the girls how to make them as well. I smell a tutorial coming soon!

But now its back to the everyday. I have another Dr's appointment tomorrow. Fun fun.... and in other news I found a super FUN swap site and I cant wait to play! Im a sucker for happiness in the mailbox.
