The term “crop” is common scrap lingo to most scrapbookers. The scrapbookers definition of the word crop is: 1.a. to cultivate boxes of photos so that they leave a lasting legacy for future generations. 1.b. to trim your photos to improve the composition. 2.a. a gathering of scrapbookers to enjoy company of friends and to work on layouts. 2.b. a ploy to get out of the house and gather with friends.

Crops allow you to meet new friends in a group setting while working on scrapbook pages and/or cards. Some scrapbookers come to crops dragging along several rolling totes. Others come pushing Iris carts, while still others carry in boxes and bags. It doesn’t matter how much stuff you bring or how you get it there . . . crops provide several hours of scrapbooking time and socialization.

I can’t believe that one week ago today I was in Houston at the My Sketch World Crop. I can’t begin
to tell you how much fun it was! I got to meet 15 very talented My Sketch World friends IRL and what an amazing fun filled weekend we had! Sharing pizza and scrappy time on Friday night, having breakfast with them on Saturday morning and then scrapping at Archiver’s from 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 p.m.

Sunday after breakfast the limo bus showed up to take us to the National Museum of Funeral History (very interesting place), then it was off to the Stages Repertory Theatre to see Life Could Be A Dream and to indulge in some delicious orderves.

To top off the evening we had dinner at Pappasito’s.   The limo arrived way to early on Monday morning (4:30 a.m.) to take me to the airport. But all good things come to an end.

Pages I completed at the crop:

I have some exciting news to share . . . but not until July 30th.  I can however give you a sneak peek of a project I have been working on.
