Cupcakes, Cropping and Good Company

We had a fabulous time at the crop yesterday (those who were off doing other things were greatly missed).  As one of the ladies AWOL was Denise I am doing the post crop blog, not as many photos as usual but I did remember to take a few.

We started the morning with some independent scrapping

accompanied by Lemon Meringue Cupcakes

and Strawberry Ombre Cakes - they didn't work as planned and the layers of colour are not as distinct as I would have liked.

After lunch the fabulously talented Ann taught a two page class.

I am  always in awe at how she can make such fabulous pages from the supplies she has.  She is so creative with her cutting and placing of paper that a little goes a long way.



Cherry chose to cross stitch her page - beautiful

Finally, variations on the theme,

A page from Sandie

A page from Jill

NOTE - the crop in November is the second weekend - 10th and there will not be a class but we are having a kit swap instead.  Here is my kit as a suggestion for what a kit could comprise.

 I have included two pieces of double sided paper, some stickers, a piece of cardstock and a journaling card.  I also rummaged around in my stash and found some coordinating pearls, buttons and a doily.  The kit total should be about £5.00.  Please make sure that the items you put into the kit are of a quality you would like to receive yourself.

Looking forward to seeing you next month.

Also don't forget that ATDML has a retreat at Stoke by Nayland Golf Club from 2nd to 4th November and even if you are not coming to the retreat you will always be welcome to pop along and spend your pennies in the shop which should be open from about 3pm Friday to 4:30pm Sunday. Late night shopping on both Friday and Saturday, the lovely Jill only closes the shop to sleep and is back bright and early the following day and she promises you a cup of tea/coffee too!
