{Saturday Crop}

I have been a member of this crop in Cheam for nearly 4 (maybe even 5) years now. We meet once a month in a community hall in Cheam. It really is a lovely bunch of women. We are all loud, like to chat, the majority all drink tea (all with no sugar) and the majority also love the fact the community hall is next to a Sainsburys and a Starbucks!

It has been a long time since I have been able to go to the crop for the whole day on Saturday. Due to childcare, events (baby showers, birthdays and seeing take that in concert) and also with wedding prep. But this Saturday I was able to stay all day. It was a couple of the ladies birthdays recently so we had a little lunch and some cake.

I had packed up a few page kits (more that I could complete in a day) but managed 1 double layout and 3 single layouts - and seeing as I had a very slow start catching up with everyone, showing wedding pics and seeing my lovely friend Michaelanne and her new baby boys Jimmy.

I am a little worried about scrapping the wedding to be honest - so I did not do any of those layouts! So i did scrap my hen and some of Maxwell.

 This was using the starting point layout which can be found over at www.shimelle.com each weekend!

 This is a double layout - which I have not done for ages! and It took me a while - but glad I have been able to document some of the details from my Hen. I had two parts this nice civilised afternoon tea - which was then followed by a trip in a hummer out to a vodka bar!

Here is a little pic of one using M nursery pics - the main pic I took was not so good - but you get the idea!
 And finally...

A bottle of tea, yes he has it. in the morning with me having a cuppa - his is a very weak milky tea. But like mother like son. Now to tackle some actually wedding pics. Or maybe not?!


  1. Fabulous pages, you were very productive at the crop I'm lucky if I manage to do 2 pages. What collection is the green polka dot paper on the scrap girls layout from.

  2. Fab layouts Leanne, goodness weren't you productive :). I wouldn't expect anything else but a morning tea for little m :)
