So I went to a crop on Sunday ...

... the regular monthly Scrapaholics crop ... (an interesting group of ladies). We are getting quite large with over 40 members yet we cannot find space that will accomodate more than about 28 at a time, thank goodness not everyone can make every crop ... (and why can i never remember that that are 2 m's in accommodate). So it was a good day ... a lot of fun was had ... i kinda was off on the side working away ... you ever have one of those days when you wake up with a headache, kind of a sinus thing and you just feel kinda discombobulated all day? so that was me Sunday ... but i still did have fun ... i actually did two layouts ... and hopefully next month i will be in a much better space and be a little more up for it ... and damn, the sun went and the rains came and thats what the sinus thing was probably all about ... Such a weird weird winter ... how are we going to welcome 1,000's of winter olympic vistors when it is mild enough outside for tshirts, a light jacket and an umbrella? Seriously the climate has been so moderate of late ... not at all like last year when transit came to stanstills over the tremendous amounts of snow. And speaking of snow, one of the mountains has had to move its snow from the bottom of the mountain to the top, to keep it cold ... hopefully in the days leading up to the olympics it gets chillier and we can show off our town when it looks all pretty with snow covering and a blue sky.

My two sweethearts ... a layout for my daughters book!

And the little wants a closer look at the page ... or, as i suspect, just wants to be in the photo!

A layout for my book ... called "my heart beats"

A close up of the flower and leaves and ribbon and stuff... i modified the Prima flower by taking out the ugly yellowish bead from the center (it was the colour of nicotine stained fingers) added a few pink beads and glimmer misted the flower a pales shade of pink ... it looks quite nice now!

Gorgeous layouts Jo, so glad you got a couple done. I'm looking forward to being able to stay and crop next month. I started working on your circle journal already. I found a great old photo of my Mom and I.
