Memories of Crop & Create

Good morning!

There comes a time when I have to push myself to take more pictures of events, adventures, etc. that happen in my life.  I sometime try to over think the photos and end up not taking any.  And then there are times where I just let myself (more so my trigger finger!) go.  Click away!  And most times, it's in these instances that the best pictures are taken.  

Last year at Crop & Create, I found myself with only a little bit of time to walk the floor and visit with friends I hadn't seen in a while.  I brought my phone with me and started taking selfies with my peeps!  Click here, click there!  It was so much fun!!  And these are the pictures I've been scrapping with the most lately.

I created this first layout for Let's Capture Our Memories' December Color Spot .  It had some great colors and it was perfect for the little pictures I used.   The layout was a difficult one for me to put together, but it ended up great and it's one of my favorites.  Most of the supplies for this layout came from a Studio Calico Kit and of course my go to Jillibean Soup alphas.  

I couldn't wait to get this next picture on a page!!  My friend Michelle and I most definitely "bonded" that weekend!  Hee! Hee!  Nothing like a good duck face to get the giggles going!!  Just look at those Hot Lips!!

I used a Pagemaps sketch to guide my inspiration.  Papers are from Studio Calico.  As I was looking through my stash for some hearts, I found a couple of corrugate shapes from Jillibean Soup and chipboard hearts from Maya Road.  I altered the chipboard by adding some distress ink and giving them a layer of glossy accents.  Those red glitter Thickers were perfect for my title and those little enamels from CTMH for a finishing touch.  Super simple, super fun and everytime I see those pictures, I pucker up and remember the fun weekend I had with my scrappy peeps!  I can't wait to share another Crop & Create with them!

Check out the C&C page for info on how you can join in on the fun!  I would love to take pictures with you too!!
