Been cropping

Today was the day for Eclectic Keepsake's monthly crop. As usual,in the morning we did our own projects- this was the layout I made with the new Girl's Paperie papers... I used a few little Prima flowers too and a couple of Girl's Paperie embellishments..
I really struggled thinking of a title for this - even looking in my little book didn't inspire me - so I ended up calling it 'silly grins' - at one point we were going to call it 'happy' - then Deb suggested i could make seven separate  layouts of  himself-all  named after the seven dwarfs. I could definitely do ' happy' ,'sleepy' 'dopey' and 'grumpy' but lost the plot a bit when we got to 'doc' and 'bashful' !!
Deb,Jane and I sat with Karen and had a few giggles along the way.Karen had made  some lovely cupcakes as usual,this time we had orange ones and chocolate truffles ones- sadly I didn't take any photos of them today but they were yummy.
Then it was time for lunch and then the class designed by Mel from A Trip Down Memory Lane...The layout was using Crate Paper  Emmas Shoppe and was gorgeous...

I used an old photo of me when I was about 5 in a swimming pool in Cornwall.. I've always loved swimming and I remember the water being really cold and even that didn't deter me !
I thoroughly enjoyed my day catching up with friends.and as always it went very quickly.
