Been Cropin'

I went to a new to me crop today and had a lovely time.  Everyone was so lovely and I managed to be quite productive considering I was sitting next to Sandra! :)

I found some tucked away photos the other day that were just ripe for scrapping.  The first one I used was from Maddie's Christening in 2003 and here's the title:
I knew I had to use this title because, unusually, Maddie only has Godmothers, a real bit of girl power.  The people I picked to be Godmothers were and still are my best friends and I knew I could count on all of them to guide and help Maddie as she grew.  I used a Gotta Craft crop kit for the layout, I thought the colours were an almost perfect match to our finery:
I remember the day like it was yesterday. It was the 21st December and these lovely ladies travelled many miles, one of them over 3000!, at a busy time of year to share this special day with us.

I finished another layout which I'll share soon and I managed to start a third one which I think I'll finish tonight because I'm still in the scrapping mood :)

I hope your weekend is going well

This is so pretty! Glad you had a good time at the crop. I'm always curious to know how people prepare for their crops and what they pack. I'm putting together some plans for my crop next Saturday and I'm so excited! Its good to scrap with others isn't it?!

That's a lovely layout Jo! I'm pretty envious of your chance to sit beside sandra at a crop - I'd love to get the chance for a good old chat with her IRL
