Saturday's crop



What a busy week I've had after just coming back from vacation! Yesterday I ended the week by going to a Fiskars crop only a few miles from my house. 28 women came from all over and we had a fun day. In the morning we did a make n take that Lisa taught on embellishing a notebook. In the afternoon we did a make n take (sponsored by A Kiss On The Chic) taught by Melanie. Now this one was so much fun as we work with cardboard and distressing it with ink. I took a few pics of the class so take a look. You can see Melanie is holding the finished product.....a little notebook.
This is how the pieces looked before we put them together. Here you can see how we worked distressing the cardboard too. For some of the ladies it was their 1st time working with wood or cardboard as not everyone is into this type of crafting. But the finished project turned out so nice and everyone put their own little spin on theirs.

We had some very nice door prizes and I even won a rolling cropcase seat. I can stash all my stuff in it cuz it is like a mini suitcase even with the pull handle on wheels yet it has a frame around it that enables you to sit on it too. It was a great way to end the week............today I am going to RELAX and then tomorrow it's down to business with sorting all my Fiskar goodies, packing them and getting them ready to send out. Have a great day all!
