Crop Night

Last night was our monthly crop night at 911. I finally got to meet Karen (ScrappiKat) from!!! She is sooo awesome!!!...sweet, funny and so nice:) She also took her daughter Lexi who is such a sweetie:) I also got to meet Karen's friend Sharon. Another GREAT lady!!! ;) I had the GREATEST time last night. I am SOOO looking forward to next month's crop:) We talked and laughed. I wish we hadn't had to leave a little early:(

Miguel picked up and I went back to Lal's. We stayed up until a little past 2am and scrapped some more:) I finished five LOs all together:) The most I have scrapped in QUITE a bit. I just hadn't been feeling it, but I was on a roll:)

I went by Jo Ann's at Crossroads today and they had a whole bunch of stuff on clearance. I picked up packs of Colorbok flowers for 97 cents!!! as well as a couple of packs of Jo Ann's ScrapEssentials gem brads for 97 cents a pack!!!

Also went by the Michael's at the Rim...just to look;) Hey, Karen...they had the Far East 12x12 pack!!! I don't think there is a coupon this week though:( I spent all of six dollars today. Sooo proud of myself. I have done an awesome job on my sb spending this last month or so. I only spent $15 at last night's crop:) Of course it did help that there wasn't a whole lot of new stuff in:) hee hee

Here's my LOs from yesterday:

LO I did with a pic of Mikey climbing the half wall; one of his favorite pasttimes:) All papers are Junkitz Extreme Boy:)

LO of Mattie trying his his skateboad for the first time. All papers here are also Junkitz Extreme Boy. I LOVE this line for boy LOs:)

LO of Victoria laying out on the front lawn:) I used Comso Cricket Dutch Girl. I had been dying to use these papers. I used a sheet of the French Twist decorative edged paper to trace the pattern onto the back of the Cosmo Cricket and then used my Cutterbees to cut it out:)

LO of the kids last year at the Helotes Cornyval:) All papers here are Basic Grey Color Me Silly. So glad I could dig into my "older" stash and use something:)

I absolutely LOVE the way this one came out. First of all, I just LOVE the picture. Secondly, I just love the way the green stands out of the black and the orange made a really nice accent color:) I finally got around to using another set of my Autumn Leaves stamps.

Thank so much for looking:)

Sounds like you had a great time at the crop...I am sad i couldn't go! I'll have to live vicariously thru you. Your layouts are way cool. 5 lo's is a huge accomplishment!!

Way to go on your spending...I need to cut back, but don't seem to be having much luck at that!!
