Project Life: Week 29

I met up with some friends at Archiver's on Saturday for a fun day of cropping.  I spent about 4 hours completing these very simple pages.  Why did it take so long?
1. I only got about 2 square feet of space because my cropping mates (especially Kim and Heather) crept into my space with their stuff and I couldn't spread my stuff out.  We call that "crop creep". 
2. And one person (who shall remain KIM!) kept using ALL of my stuff so I never could put my hands on the things I needed.
3. I'm naturally slow when I'm around others because, of course, I must entertain with stories and my yapping does not cease.

JUST KIDDING about #s 1 and 2.....but I'm pretty right on about #3.  LOL!

And Kim, who reads my blog, will know I am just funnin' her.  She is the über talented Basement Stamper....on several design teams...and her blog is HERE if you want to check it out.

I had a great time and we hope to get together again soon.  It is so much fun to create with others feed off their creativity and's very empowering!

Anyway, on to my pages...
Here is the left side:
 I used Doodlebug papers to make my week and journaling cards.
And why does the year 2013 have a piece of paper on it and was re stamped with a Hero Arts set???
Well, because Doodlebug had an error and it said 2103!!!  Glad I noticed it and was able to sort of correct it!  I just used a little stamp to circle the dates this included but now that I look back I think, to make my book consistent, I need to put WEEK 29 on this somewhere. Will do...will do...
 I just made some simple 3x4 insert cards for my journaling and just added a bit of paper and twine to them to "spiff" them up a bit.
 And here is the right side:
The bottom right photo shows the ladies I cropped with on Saturday.  Kim, Heather and Debbie are long time friends but I met Libby Hickson for the first time on Saturday.  She hosts the blog Libby's Little Addiction which you can visit HERE.  She is also a Project Lifer but makes the most fabulous cards, too.  And *gasp* she works out of her home for HERO favorite stamp company of all time!  It was fun spending time with her and we hope to get together again soon!

Again, I just used some papers from the Doodlebug collection to make a few journaling cards.

 And I inked up a wood veneer arrow. that I look back these pages shouldn't have taken more than half an hour.  LOL!!!
Oh's the process that I love. I've said that before!!!

Happy Crafting!

  4. Storm damage is no fun. Water damage like we had is no fun. Glad we are all safe.
