I did actually manage to produce two actual layouts at yesterday's crop. Started and completed on the day. And one used some products bought on the day too. Wooooo.
Of course, I haven't actually been as organised as to photograph them so I can share them yet. Oh no, that would be going to far. Instead I have one I prepared earlier. This uses stuff I bought when I went down to PaperArts with Ang last time. Isn't that BG Origins doily gorgeous. And wasn't I brave to actually use it?
So, yesterday's crop. It was fab to see Chris, Jackie and Fiona again. Fiona had made Raspberry and chocolate cupcakes, which were delicious. (I had two). Lots of coffee was consumed, some shopping was done and we talked pretty much all day. Chris and Jackie did some gorgeous layouts. Much nicer than mine.
My first one took four and a half hours to do, btw. It might have got done a bit quicker but every time I stuck something down, I celebrated by eating a cake or doing some shopping. Yeah!
And, on my second layout, and please make sure you're sitting down for this, I used a journalling pen and did actual handwriting. Yes, you read that correctly. I wrote on the layout with a pen. Not computer journalling. Hand journalling. And as we all know, I really, really hate my own handwriting.
I'm pretty sure Chris and Jackie have a bet on to see how long it takes me to stick a flower or something over it to hide it…
