Back from the crop

So I am officially back on the crafting wagon!  Work has been wearing me down lately but I finally got a weekend to just do my thing.  The last time I got a weekend?  January.  I know people.  These little snippets of craft time just aren't enough for me.

I thoroughly enjoyed my three days without responsibilities or being 'mom'.  No dishes.  I stayed up late.  Slept in.  Wore my pajama pants around the hotel.  Laughed so hard my ribs hurt.  Watched a hockey game in the hotel bar with friends.

I grabbed a few pictures with my phone but totally forgot to take out the good camera all weekend.

Thanks to my friend Rachel and her awesome retreat group for a great weekend.  Looking forward to doing it all again in the fall.

A must have.  It was 2 doors down from the hotel so I walked there every afternoon for 'Happy Hour'.

I'm pretty proud of all the cards I finished, the two Studio Calico kits I killed (from 2011!!) and the many layouts I completed.

Here is just one:

A little Glossy Accents on the lollipop makes it 'pop'.
I'm in love with these sticker letters and I might just want to buy 5 more sheets to keep around.


  1. That is a FABULOUS 2 page design! LOVE it!

  2. Love the layout! What a great way to spend Mother's Day!

  3. I would go if cupcakes were involved. :) Such a fun and colorful 2-pager. I love the alphas too!

  4. Great page!!
    I went to a weekend crop in March and it was much needed. Wish I could do them more often!
    But I agree that it is nice to get away from all the responsibility!

    And you called it! I guess if I can't have my Blues win the cup, I am rooting for the Kings :)

  5. Looks and sounds like you had a fabulous time! Love the layout you created!!
