Challenge 5: November Virtual Crop

Why is it that day’s like today go by so fast?

Are you having FUN?  Have you used a technique on your projects that made you “step out of your box”?

We have had a fabulous group of ladies that contributed to this Virtual Crop, and we would like to thank them for sharing their time and talents with us.  THANK YOU!

Hope you had the opportunity to stop and refuel with some lunch at some point as well.

Let’s face it–we need the fuel (or chocolate) to keep the creativity flowing.

Challenge 4: November Virtual Crop

Happy Saturday!  We are so glad that you are able to join us for the Virtual Crop!

The skies are gray here in Central Minnesota, and we are supposed to have a very cold winter-like day here!  We have already had our first snowfall, and anticipating more.  So crank up the heat and let’s do some scrapping.

Got your coffee?  (….and M&M’s?)  I can’t scrap without those 2 basics.   What about you?  What is your go-to scrapping snack?

Did you get a chance to join us last night to create a couple of projects?

Let’s not waste any time, and get things rolling right away.

Challenge 3: November Virtual Crop

Let’s wrap up the day by changing gears a little.

Let’s create a card.

You may only be a scrapbooker, but have lots of scraps left over from your layouts.  This is the perfect way to use up those scraps.

Create a card of any theme, and you will be ahead of the game the next time you are looking for a card to mail out to a loved one, or attach to a gift you are giving.

Your card recipient will feel special getting a homemade card from you.

So, if you are not a card-maker, I challenge you to try it.  If you are a card-maker—create away!
