In the words of Bill Withers - A Lovely Day

On Saturday it was the monthly Eclectic Keepsakes crop.It was so nice to see Deb back and Jane - and this time I took a new girl with me - my eldest son's girlfriend. I have often bored her   shown her my creations at home and when I've been to a crop. She had mentioned that she might like to come one day - so Saturday was the day.I am very happy to report that she really really enjoyed it, put me to shame by doing three layouts and went shopping the next day for supplies- yay! Here she is scrapping away..

We had a good catch up on all the gossip in the morning  enjoying Key Lime and Coffee and Walnut cupcakes made by Karen.

I managed to get one layout done- I signed up for a Big Picture class - 28 days of sketches - and made a layout with the absolutely gorgeous new Carta Bella papers. Checkout the slim himself and me  in the early 1990s!
A topical photo by the Olympic rings had to be done..
Karen had designed a beautiful class using 7Gypsies papers 

and here's mine

Am off to play some more now - back soon.

I think Lauren is a convert! Was lovely to meet her. The 90s layout is fab, it seems strange to see 'himself' with hair ;-)

It's always good to hear about a new convert! You know how enjoyable I always think this crop looks - and that's before you even factor in the cupcakes

It's great that Lauren enjoyed it so much, now you have someone else in the family to scrap with!
