I hosted a crop at my house today, and afterwards I decided that crops are a waste of time for me as far as getting pages scrapped. I am usually too busy talking or giving others advice about their pages to get my own pages done! I do love the girl time though, so I'm not giving up on them yet. I managed to finish this layout at the crop, at least. I realized I used a lot of discontinued product on it, but let's be real - CTMH's stamps and embellishments don't suddenly get un-cute just because they are retired. No, I can see myself using the stamp sets for years to come. Hopefully I'll use up the embellishments, though, because I do not want to be using them for years! I based my design on a Becky Higgins sketch from November 2009 Creating Keepsakes. Although I am not quite as sad about Becky not having a sketch column in CK as I would have been if I hadn't discovered Jeanette Lynton's pattern books, I will still miss seeing her monthly columns. Hopefully her work will still be featured frequently in the magazine.
