All Day Crop

Yesterday Mickey, Emily and I did something we haven't done in well over a year - we attended an all-day crop at our local scrapbooking store. We used to go to these marathon events once a month but gradually got out of the habit. They're great fun - about twenty scrappers set up on large tables in the back of the store and visit, chat, shop, and work on our projects. It was scheduled to run from 10 am till midnight, with the store owner supplying dinner, dessert, beverages and snacks for us. I love these sessions and look forward to doing more of them.

Here I am with two of the three layouts I completed. I'm a slow scrapper so considered it a good thing to finish three. It's too easy to get distracted by all the new products for sale at the front of the store.

Mickey is much quicker than I am. She decorated these blocks for her niece who is expecting a baby. It's hard to see the detail, but they're quite beautiful. She also almost completed a mini album.

Emily is a fast worker too. She managed to complete four layouts using her wedding pictures. She's been married for a year and a half already and is slowly working on her wedding album. In her defence, she's a very busy young lady. I love her style.
Em was the first of us to pack it in. She left at 7:00 to go to a party.
Mickey and I must be getting old because we only lasted till 9:00. We got uncomfortable sitting hunched over our work for so long, and all the Chinese food we had for dinner made us sleepy. We were embarassed to pack it in so early - we used to stay till they kicked us out after midnight! Ah well! It was a fun day, in good company, doing something we love to do, so we were totally satisfied with our day and night out.
