This weekend, I went to a "retreat" hosted by a scrapbooker I've know for many, many years. This time, she had 70 crafters!! This is her 5th year holding crops in a local hotel's conference room. She had a special sheet cake made to help celebrate this milestone and to thank the hotel staff. Over the years, we've made many friends at these "retreats" and documented many memories on probably thousands of scrapbook pages! Here is a photo of just a few of the ladies I cropped with on Friday night!
I took several sketches to this crop -- including the January Week 3 sketch from Let's Get Sketchy!
The border on this sketch inspired me to FINALLY use the Sew Stamper tool I've had in my stash for about a year. This tool is from We R Memory Keepers. Now that I've finally used it once, I cannot wait to use it some more. (You'll probably be seeing it again on my pages and cards soon!)
