My First Crop

Went to my first proper crop on Saturday and I had a wonderful time. Five hours passed and I barely noticed. And I only managed to get two layouts done. I thought I'd be coming home with five or six! Obviously too much chatting and eating of cake. And it was nice to see that not just scrapbooking, but card making and knitting and all sorts of crafts were going on all round me.

But now I want a wheelie craft tote! There were so many nice ones all round me... but Christmas is past and my birthday isn't for ages :(

That said, it is really annoying living in Ireland where no one has heard of Scrapbooking. The choice of totes isn't great and unlike other craft supplies, would just be too expensive to ship in from the UK or US. I just know I'm going to end up buying myself one of those old lady shopping trolleys to see me over until I figure out a plan...

Anyway, here are the layouts I did at the crop. Not great pictures of them, but if I don't upload them now I'll never get round to it.

This is a pic just before it was finished, and I wish I'd left it like this. I added a little more and wasn't as happy, but sure isn't that always the way with scrapping (or is that just me??)


Happier with this one, but the photo doesn't do it justice. If I have a minute tomorrow I might change it. (and I guess alter this text!)


  1. Hi Triona,

    I am glad you had a nice time at the crop. I like your layouts. Did you check out Papermania wheelie totes? Art&Hoby shop has them as far as I remember. I don't have one myself but was thinking of investing in one. I will send you an email these days regarding our scraping together.



  2. Hiya Svjetlana :) I'm not crazy about the papermania ones, but they seem to be the only ones available here... I'm just wishing work would send my hubby to America again, and then I'd be sorted!

    Email me anytime, no hassle :)

  3. Don't be so hard on yourself. I think both layouts are great. Isn't chatting half of what these crops are about anyway! It's important to do a bit of gossiping.

  4. Love your daughter's hat - well worth it! You did well do get two layouts done - I sometimes just work on one and even then don't finish.
