How Quiet Can 35 Ladies Be?

Well if they're busy scrapbooking, they are pretty quiet.  Such was the case of the weekend as thirty five avid paper crafters busied themselves with the crafts they all love.  There were a multitude of cards made, many mini-albums and numerous scrapbook layouts.  

We asked each table to tally up what had been accomplished and the end result was 233 scrapbook layouts, 48 cards and 15 mini-books completed.

No wonder there was so much quiet concentration!

Here's a look at one of 
the cards that were made.

This was what all the ladies had the opportunity to make at sometime during the weekend.  This make and take offered them the chance to make a small hand sewn ribbon flower, banners, flags, circles with faux cording, a stamped embellishment and altered chipboard.  A busy make and take with many elements to work with.  

And here is the sketch that they had to follow and interpret with their own papers, embellishments and photos.

What a hard task the ladies had when it came time to judge the work of their peers. With so many stunning pages it wasn't at all easy, but here are some of the winning pages.

 As you can see this is an interpretation of the
sketch challenge.
                                                                                                Here we see how the make and take page was worked into a double page layout.
Many of the ladies commented on the new venue that we had this time.   All in all everyone found it an excellent venue, with plenty of lighting and space for everyone.

We now move on to the beginning of the All Day Christmas Card Classes. Have you looked at the list of supplies to know what you have to bring? Don't delay and find you're missing something important to complete a card.

Are you thinking Halloween yet?  One of the table favours at the Mega Crop was a pumpkin.  Very easy to make and you could easily make it into a Christmas tree using different papers.  We then moved into Christmas mode with a felt Santa. Drop into the store to see a sample of each of them

Here's a cute knitting pattern if you have a toddler to knit for

I think that's all for now.  I know Linda mentioned I would be posting more photos of the mini album we taught in class, but did you know that.... 
                    you'll have to wait until next week for the photos.
 I'd love to hear what craft you like to do and even if there is something you'd like to learn.  Just leave a comment in the box below...sign your name to the comment and post it under the "anonymous" choice.
