12 hours of yapping and scrapping

March 30, 2010 at 12:33 am 12 comments

that is what I did Saturday. What an awesome time we had at our crop. Spent the better portion of the first couple hours yapping and trying to scrap and getting ridiculed by my “friends” for still working on the same LO for 4 hours…stop laughing…you can’t rush art. Hmmph! Finally got past the marathon LO and wisked through the next 3 in record time. Yep only took me 9 hours to do 3 more…pretty impressive huh! In my defense part of those 9 hours was spent stuffing my face…don’t worry diet monitors…I behaved…even though my evil “friends” Lori and Jingle brought yummy looking chocolate desserts. I brought salad in an oreo ice cream container and stuffed myself with that…tasted nothing like oreos. 😦  Besides the non-oreo tasting salad, I enjoyed some super yummy turkey chili that my bud Melissa made for lunch and some turkey meatballs for dinner…it was so not a good day to be a turkey. Besides the yapping and scrapping and face stuffing, I got some shopping in…I was finally able to beat my friend Cheryl to all the good stuff. Whenever we shop together she always shows me stuff and then says isn’t this cute…then I say yes… and she says…it’s the last one…it’s quite the evil game…and it’s only really fun for her.

Had some interesting tablemates…my old pal Kerry…or should I say my “young” pal…byatch..the little evil child had fun taunting me about how many years it would be until she was my age…again …I repeat…byatch. Lucky me I got to sit next to her all day. I had to remind her that I may be ever so slightly over the age of 40 but I could still kick her under 30 ass. Oooh Rah! Sitting next to her did have some plusses…the little techy brought her laptop so I got to see SCAL in action…too cool. May have to add that to the “someday I will buy it” list. I also got to sit with the uber creative Jennifer…no not me…the one the only Jingle…that Jennifer…BTW there were 4 Jennifers in a room of 13 people..totally confusing …anyways…back to Mrs. Jingle…this girl has some serious creative skills…she made some super beautiful cards…too bad her mad skills don’t carry over to packing…the girl seriously lacks in that department…although it made for some great entertainment watching her trying to find anything in her bag o’ stuff.  Our other tablemate was my friend Stacy…who apparently came to a crop with 12 other people for a “little alone time”…she built a wall of scrap stuff around her and proceeded to crank out layout after layout…if that weren’t odd enough…she didn’t even SHOP! Gasp. All that pretty stuff and she didn’t buy a thing! Can you believe it …a scrapper who scraps more than she talks or shops…it was like sitting with Big Foot…just hard to believe they exist. All in all we had a great time and a lot of chuckles…mostly totally juvenile and mostly thanks to Kerry’s love of the phrase “that’s what she said”. Good times.

Too bad the time flew by so fast. Already looking forward to the next crop.

As for the 4 layouts I did…I still had to add the journaling when I got home and tweek them a bit hence the reason I’m posting them 2 days later…so without further ado…

And the Winner is … Truly, madly, deeply…

    Well, thanks for the compliments, I think. I’m a little distracted by the complete and utter bashing of my packing skills! HA! At least I didn’t forget anything! It really was a fabulous time!!!! So nice to relax and play with paper and glitter and stuff! AND…your layouts, of course, look amazing.

    Jennifer, silly question, but did you use stazon on the edge of your cow photos? ’cause I love the effect.

    Are you coming to Acadia this summer?

    Jingle told me to stop by and I did. Once again I have found a great sit! So many to keep track of now…

    I so wish I could meet “Jingle” IRL! She is such a hoot!
    Glad you were able to get ANYTHING done! When I was with Livia and CEG, I was surprised I got anything done! It’s just more fun to “YAP” than to “Scrap!” LOL

    You were very strong to bring along and eat your special food.
    Even if the LOs took longer, with the gabbing, and gossiping, and checking out new toys, the results are wonderful.
