I like driving in my car ...

Last week, I attended my very first Crafty Moments crop!  I was unsure what to expect and was worried about not having everything with me that I might need.  The advice I was given was to put myself together a little kit, so that's what I did during the afternoon ... however, I basically did everything for a scrapbook page except stick it down!!!  Consequently, during the evening I completed my page too early so there was nothing for it except to indulge in a bit of stash envy and admire everyone else's creativity!  The afore mentioned stash envy has lead to a little online shopping (from newly recommended websites!) where some gorgeous new bits and bobs accidentally found their way into my shopping basket (and I totally blame Katy for bringing it with her to the crop and Daphne for subsequently encouraging me!)

Anyway, here is the layout that I made on that day:

I have decided that I like to use song lyrics in my titles, so this title was Cuttlebugged and typed on my little old typewriter, and I used Basic Grey Cupcake papers (because I still have so many left!)

Really looking forward to the next meeting!

  1. Sounds like you had a good time! Valerie

  2. Sounds like fun, and I love the page you made! I too love to use song titles, makes it so much easier, doesn't it? Online shopping, ooh, boy, that could be deadly, hahaha! I remember my first crop, I had a plastic bag with my photos and album, maybe a paper trimmer (actually, no, I think at that point I still used a steel ruler and craft knife to cut!) and some butt-ugly baby papers. I was blown away by the rolling carts and amount of stuff everyone else had, it really was eye opening. I felt way out of my league, but now I think I'm coming into my own, and trying to use my stash rather than build it. Full circle! I've got puppy pics posted, tease, tease, better go check it out, big hugs, Roxy.

  3. Wonderful Lo I love the title and yes I too love using song lyrics as titles. I look forward to see more or your Lo's soon
