Fun at the Crop

Yesterday I was at my monthly crop and I really had a great time.  At lot of the ladies at the crop were born in September so it was a bit of a birthday party, this is what we were greeted with when we walked in:
It was made by our wonderful crop leader, Gaye, and it tasted just as good as it looked!

I got cracking on my first layout of the day, the Weekly Challenge at UKScrappers.  We had to have a beach theme, use the colour blue and 2 photos:
I used Shimelle's Starting Point from a few weeks ago and the last few bits of my Lime Twist kit.
And this little button which was one of the first things I bought when I started scrapping over 7 years ago!

Next up was the House Challenge at UKScrappers, we had to use this sketch:
And some sewing or stamping.
I did a tiny bit of hand sewing just in the top left.  I love these pictures of Maddie, she's at an age where she doesn't like to be photographed but the look in her eye tells another story.
I used Crate Paper's Farmhouse papers from this month's Gotta Craft kit.
And my new Nestabilities dies.

I did start a third layout and I'm off to finish that now, scrappy weekends are so much fun.

I hope you've had a good one
Thanks for stopping by

Ooh that cake looks scrummy you lucky thing! Two lovely pages, I love the colours on them, and the summer button on the first is perfect. X

You are on a roll, love those LOs, well done for using up another kit and definitely good use of the nestabilities.
