Results of Saturday's Crop

Here are a few of the LOs I created while cropping at the Scrapbook Clubhouse on Saturday. 

These first two are for my Newcomers Club.

Holiday Party:

This one is from last summer's vacation to upstate New York:

And here are a few from Christmas, featuring my lovely nieces:

I am happy to report that everything I used was from my stash, except for the cool patterned paper on Loose Tooth.  It's by Fancy Pants, and I couldn't resist it since it went perfectly with my nieces fleece jacket!

I still need to put the finishing touches on a few other LOs I started while at the crop, so more to come!

Recent Layouts

Last week I was treated to an unexpected long weekend due to a snow day on Friday.  I pulled out my 2008-2009 storage binder (a la Stacy Julian's Library of Memories system) and took advantage of the time to create a few scrapbook pages. 

The first page is from last year's New Year's celebration with my best friend and her family.  Next time, I need to get more pictures of the adults, not just the kids and dogs!

Here is my charming husband last January enjoying the delicacy that is the Chicago Dog:

And finally, from last summer's excursion to the Connecticut Wine Festival:

For all you LOM devotees, my extra pictures from these events have been pulled from my binder and are ready for triage to my category drawers (or the trash can!).

This weekend, the snow is gone, the sun is out, and the temperature is in the 50s!! Despite the urge to spend as much time outdoors as possible, I had already signed up for an all day crop on Saturday. I had a great time, and was pretty productive, so more pages to come once I get them cleaned up in PSE!
