Laurie and I scrapped until we couldn’t scrap any more yesterday. I headed up to her place in the morning, and we promptly headed off to Great Scraps, since any proper scrapping day starts with a trip to the scrapbook store. After lunch, we headed back to her place and scrapped until about 4:30. I finished my Naples/Herculaneum intro page spread, and Laurie did an awesome page from her trip to Myrtle Beach last year with some friends of theirs.
Then, we packed up our scrapping supplies, and headed off to Recollections in Columbia for their midnight crop. We were both a little nervous about what to expect from a group crop. I mostly scrap alone, and when I’m not alone, I’m with Laurie and/or Sandy. That’s it. We all think our pages and methods are great, but what if the cropping group was catty or snotty?
Turns out our fears were unfounded. The ladies there were a lot of fun. They already had their little cliques, but we felt that if we showed up a few more times, we would easily fall into one of the cliques. Plus, just because the ladies there had their groups, they were more than willing to talk with us and show off their work (and even share their tools, if we’d wanted). I think we’re going to try and make these group crops a regular thing – not every time we get together to scrap, but maybe once every couple of months.
