I went to my 1st Crop on Sunday. It was great. Organized by Erin of The Dreamers Relay for Life Team, which is sponsored by the American Cancer Society, it was a combination Vendor Fair and Crop. (Here is the link to their fundraising page, if you'd like to help them reach their $1500 goal. You can also check out their Facebook page. If you live in the New Hope, PA area, maybe you can come to their next crop.) Some crafters were making cards and some scrapbook pages. Joyce and Betty, both CTMH consultants, were on hand to help with cutting layouts on their Cricuts using the new CTMH ARTBOOKING cricut cartridge, lending an opinion here or there, and supplying card stock or items that had been forgotten. Erin and her mom worked really hard and had wonderful raffle items and goody bags for the crafters. A special thank you to all the companies that donated our goodies especially The Crafters Workshop. Their contribution was awesome.
Since it was my first crop and I wasn't sure what to expect, I didn't take my whole craft room with me. What I mainly took was a pile of digi images that I could sit and color in the comfortable AC. Worked for me! I purchased several Christmas gifts at the vendor fair and won 2 nice prizes in the raffle. It was a fun day. Can't wait for Erin to plan the next one.
I did get one card partially completed while there. I wanted to show this wonderful digi image from A Day For Daisies to the gals. The digi image was printed twice; then one image was colored and fussy cut; on the second image only the flowers were colored, fussy cut, popped onto the first image and little pearls added to the centers. Some glitter gel was added to the ribbon around the tree trunk.
I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:
