Scarecrow Girl

As I was getting ready to go to my all-day crop yesterday, Kenzie and Amy came down to see if I had any "extra" scrapbooking supplies that Kenzie could use for a school project. (I have enough scrapbook supplies here to supply Kenzie's whole class!). She had brought home a scarecrow figure with the instructions to dress the scarecrow using different media. So I gave her buttons, rick-rack, paper leaves, ribbon, etc. and went to my crop. This morning I went up to see what she ended up with. Here it is:

The girls were ready for church so I took pictures of them too. Here's Kenzie, with her beautiful scarecrow.

And here's Sydney, looking like Little Orphan Annie, minus the curls.

Today, or I guess it's yesterday now, was the annual Croptoberfest at the Edmonton area scrapbook stores. So, at 10:00 Saturday morning until midnight a bunch of us converged at Scrap-A-Lot and worked on our scrapbooks, shopped, chatted, ate lunch and dinner when they were provided for us by the store owners, and generally had a scrapping good time.

Barb, Florrie, Mickey and I have been scrapping and going to crops together for about four years now and enjoy the chance to get together as often as we can to indulge our hobbies. We even have the t-shirts to prove it! Usually at least one of us will turn up in our "Scrapping Buddies" t-shirts, but this time all four of us did. Aren't we just so precious ;) A very enjoyable time for all of us.
