Eclectic Keepsakes Crop

What on earth has been happening with Blogger this week??
I've been trying to get on and comment on blogs and post but keep getting various messages saying 'Blogger not available ' or lots of gobbledeygook. It's also chewed up a post I made and wiped all my comments...
Let's hope this one works...I'm not sure if I'm up to date on people's latest posts - so don't think I'm abandining you if  I haven't commeneted- I'm just not sure it's taking me to your latest posts...

Anyway it was the monthly crop at Eclectic Keepsakes yesterday .We had a lovely morning as always doing our own thing,I did a page with the boys together..I used a new Glitz paper together with some leftover Sassafrass stickers and some old letters I've had for ages.Karen made some yummy cakes as always.



She made some blueberry ones and pinepaple ones with lovely glittery icing and a bonbon on top.It was nice to spend the day with Deb and Jane too.
Then in the afternoon it was time for Karen C's class.
The brief for the layout was to have two black and white and one colour photo - which I hadn't  managed to get ready (not that DEB teased me much about it !)
Anyway, I used three colour photos of the boys which I thought looked ok in the end!
It was a lovely class and a great time was had by all .. Loved the cutting out- and did manage the sewing after pricking my finger-making it bleed  and going over the edge in the first seconds of doing the sewing! - much to the other's amusement !! Such a good job that Deb had some plasters with her ..

Now then Missy .. next time you get an email telling you what to bring - do as you are told!
Yours still looks brilliant though!

Great layouts, both of them. Love the balloons on that second one.

Dawn said...

Fab layouts - sounds like lots of fun xx

Karen said...

Love both your pages Denise and I too freestyled with the photos and only used 1! I think it is faboulous the varity of pages that were made - the sign of a good and adaptable class and that Mrs C does do a good class as we all know.

Louise said...

fantastic layouts, loving the balloons, clouds and scalloped cirlce in the second. Great colours.

Ruth said...

Your LOs look great ~ I particularly love the patterned 'balloon' paper.

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

Wow, for someone who was totally unprepared (I heard about that on Deb's blog first...) you managed to do a lovely job! ;o) Glad you girls had fun. xo

Sian said...

Ah, I wondered about the injury - I've just come from Deb's!

Blogger is doing the same thing to me, and it's so random too. I can leave comments some places but not others. Argh!

Lovely pages - and who needs B&W, when the colour photos are so nice?!

Blogger was very poorly. There was a big post about it, on Blogger Buzz (Blogger's Blog!!). They are still fixing the lost posts and comments - you may well find they re-appear in the next couple of days.

have come over from Deb's blog to see what your injury was! Glad it wasn't life threatening...and that you didn't get blood all over the Lo! Sounds like a great day

2 lovely pages,Denise....and not a drop of blood to be seen!

Cheri said...

so jealous that a group of you all get to scrapbook together!

The balloon page is gorgeous! In glad your injury wasn't A&E related - although sometimes small cuts seem to sting a whole lot more don't they? :)
