Crop pictures

I spoke too early on Friday night when I was doing my scheduled post for Saturday. I said we hadn't any snow but it probably wasn't far away. In fact by the time I'd clicked 'post' and got the dogs outside the snow started! It wasn't too bad while we were out but once we got in it was like a snow storm. I really wasn't sure if the crop was going to go ahead so when I woke up at 7 and looked outside I knew there would be some traffic probems. I text everyone and in the end we all made it. Elaine even managed to stop and pick up the apple and cinnamon scones while I went in the other direction to pick up Suzy Q. That's true crafters for you lol.

Alison, our official photographer, snapped away and these are the results in no particular order ...

Annette with tea, Chris, Sheena' back, part of Julie, Lynn's side and Elaine's profile!

Chris, Julie & newbie Suzy Q (look how tidy everything is!)

LOL...she did it!!!

Elaine moi and Sheena

There's always one! We were making the rolled flowers and Julie (on left) held the unrolled pieces to look like Madonna (if you know what I mean) but was too shy for a picture. Ummm...not me lol. Not the most flattering definitely shoulda been washed lol.

The group concentrating hard

Annette sucking a soor plum?

Me actually getting work done!

Lynn, Elaine & Sheena

It was great fun as usual. I think Suzy Q coped incredibly well and had severe face ache after only 5 minutes in Lynn's company (she is hilarious!) Speaking of Lynn...Happy Birthday girlfriend!!!!! Everyone seemed to like the project...especially Lynn :-D The next crop won't be until at least February as I've got quite a heavy workload until then. I'll share it all with you in the coming weeks :-D

I do have a bit of exciting news that I can share with you right now though.... I am sponsoring the Sweet Stampin Challenge Blog December 4th!!
