The first Saturday of every month is the date the Braunton Croppers meet to spend a little time together.
Its gaurenteed that there will be lots of giggles...plenty of cakey and of course we sometimes find time to get a little scrappin done!
Sadly Jenny, who originally started the crop, has now decided to move on to pastures new...Jen, Im wishing you heaps of good luck with your new life in Northampton...we'll miss ya loads..take care and hope to see you very very soon.xx
Jennys departure means that the decissions re classes etc were now left up to me!! Normally we would work together, which made life a lot easier! I will confess...... I was scared beyond belief!
My styley is very bright and in yer face where as the ladies who attend the crop are a little more subdued with their scrappin style. I was in such a quandry as to how the kits and classes would be received!
I just want to say a huge thanks to my fellow Jellies because late on Saturday night I was having a serious self confidence crisis! They talk me through some ideas etc and Im so glad I listened to em cus the crop was a massive sucess. The classes were greatly receievd and all ladies completed both LO's and made cards with the leftovers!
I managed to get em stamping for the first time which they all enjoyed. Each of their LO's were pretty awesome and every scrapper made the layouts their own by adding their own ickle touches.
The best part of the day for me was when 2pm came around and instead of the gals packing up to head off home they were still sat around the table wanting to carry on and scrap and chat some more! Im so looking forward to next moths crop now.
So this is what we made using papers from 7 Gypsies
The "I love how you Love me" LO has been altered since my return with additional journalling having now been added. The piccie of Hubs and I was taken by J. I hate the piccie cus I look dog rough in it! I was having a really bad day and had received some pretty awful news. Hubs was giving me a cuddle and telling me all would be just fine and dandy when J came along and snapped us. This is deffo a LO for my BOM and the additional journalling waffles on about....no matter how awful I look, no matter how bad the bad days are, in sickness and in health blah blah blah....my man loves me and I love him soooo much for being the man he is.
Sunday was spent watching Bobs and his team being knocked out of the semi finals :( The score was 1 all until 2 mins before the whilstle blew! I was hoping that the guys would make the finals because they have worked so hard this season.....never mind there is always next year.....go boys go!
To drown our sorrows we headed down to the cricket club with the guys god parents and the afternoon was spent chillin out in the sunshine, whilst enjoying a couple of glasses of the black stuff. The menfolk all enjoyed a kick around on the cricket pitch whilst Linz and I sat chattin about life in general.....a very lazy day but so very enjoyable.
What a babe Linz is....
Dont ya just love Beths hat???? I want one too!
