Scrap Night...


Tomorrow I'm having friends over from my last job at the LA Times... It's been several months since we made a date to scrap and talk... we were doing in once a month... but we got off track... I'm hoping this gets us back on track. When I saw this Martha Stewart Valentine card making photo... I loved it... because it reminds me so much of why it's such fun to scrapbook with friends... the sharing of ideas, tools, recipes and stories... I love it... and I can't wait to see everyone tomorrow!!!

So my crop questions to you are...
  1. Do you plan what you're going to do? 
  2. Do you bring everything you have? Every embellishment?
  3. Do you ever get to a crop and forget anything?
  4. Do you do the base of your page & go home to put all the embellies on it? 
  5. Do you make your food... or bring take out for the crop??? 
My answers...
  1. I try to plan at least a couple pages... with sketches... ahead of time so I'm not floundering.. I want to get some pages done... so I do plan ahead some pages.
  2. When I first started going to crops... I brought EVERYTHIG... but then at the time I didn't have much... and as my supplies grew... into a room... I couldn't take everything... I still take a lot with me... because you never know what you're going to need once there.
  3. Oh yeah... this happens to me all the time... the last time... I had to drive all the way home for several things... and it wasn't fun. :( I wasted precious scrapping time!!!
  4. Sometimes... but mostly I try to finish it while I'm at the crop... I don't want to go back and do it again later.... because I won't get to it for some time because I've moved on.
  5. Depends on my time and what's going on... but I always try to make something...

How ironic... I am going to Krista's for our monthly crop at her place...and I actually always keep my rolling tote packed and work out of that ... even at home... lol... and I plan what I am going to make while I am there... i make a list... and I usually get 5 or 6 done :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
