What I done at the Crop by Julia Dunnit

Who was it that said I'd manage, despite just flinging everything in a bag because I was on a mission at the crop?  Well, you were right.  Although please bear in mind that these few pics show 8" pages which aren't exactly hard to come up with. It's an album for Miss Dunnit's best friend see, and her birthday is this Wednesday. So the deadline was stupid enough, and now you understand the whingeing on Friday!   Nevertheless, I've done enough pages to make it a worthwhile gift, and because I'm convinced that she wants to have go for herself, I'm going to include a couple of page 'kits' too.




These few pages are from the 10 that I finished at the crop.  I know!  Ten!  I felt like Laura, who always arrives ready, kitted and overflowing with ideas - I was just turning them out - and enjoying it too.  Which made me smug and I felt compelled to keep telling everyone every time I finished another page.  I know how to keep my friends. A huge thank you again to Annette the Voodoo Vixen, she shared the wonderful 7Gypsies paper that you see (the collage-y ones) and was keen to see what I did with them.  I feel they are well used on the gals.  So that's what I did at the crop.  And I've unpacked.  And put away.  And after tea today, I'm going to make difficult cards.  Pray that I'm on a roll!

10 pages-wow! How long was the crop for, a week?!?! AND unpacked!-don't you just leave EVERYTHING in the bag ready to stuff new stash into a the next crop-and then wonder how you're going to be able to make even 1 page from the mish mash you brought.....aaahh! Now I see the logic! ;-)

Now how impressed can I get? Your crop was a HUGE success, and you even put everything away when you got home. I love the results of these pages, and sweet, thoughtful Annette's papers helped along the way, too. You are far more ambitious and energetic than I am or have been. Of course, I've been through 24 consecutive days of 100 degree or greater (38C) temperatures.

Well done you! What a result so no wonder you are proud of yourself. I'm sure she'll love it and it's a fab idea to leave pages for her to finish too.
I think you over did it by telling us you put everything away too.... that's more than I can cope with and just makes me guilty as I trip over my bags from Sunday's workshop ... still in the hall! Maybe you could get round for an hour, or two, or three..... or.........
