How about a quick weekend recap. Saturday I met with the wonderful Mocha Memories Ladies for a crop at Archivers. There were four of us and we had a good time. I completed ten cards and I worked on a 2 page layout. It's about 90% completed and I do not care for it. I tried to step out of my normal style but I do not like the results. I usually do not care for white background paper. But I used it along with some old creative memories papers. I didn't like how the layout turned out. It reminds me too much of a creative memories layout! LOL! But I will try to finish it and see if I can add some pizazz to it. You never know. The cards were from a kit I purchased from Creating Keepsakes. It's one of those we mail you a DVD and a mini kit and if you want it you pay $26.95. I had two of these kits and I am not purchasing anymore since I never watch the DVDs. But I was getting low on cards and felt I needed to at least make those. They are pretty simple but nice. I actually felt as though I got something accomplished.

After the crop I had a 12th night party to attend at a friend's house. We usually go to her home and have some hors d'ouerves, light her tree (she has a Victorian tree with candles), and play games. We played Taboo and Cranium. I enjoyed myself. I really like to play games. They are fun.

Sunday I went to church. Our church is currently holding service at a school due to some renovations. It was pretty crowded in there. It's usual for the beginning of the year. Everyone's resolutions are pretty clear! LOL! Afterward I visited my mom and then went to visit a friend who lives in the downtown Chicagoland area. Finding parking was a pain in the tushy! But I found parking. She made me some delicious lasagna and garlic bread. I didn't get home until late last night. I was exhausted!

So I consider this week getting off to a great start. I hope it ends the same way!

Mocha Memories sounds like a ton of fun… glad you enjoyed it. Every time I visit a blog and they discuss their cropping moments, I keep pinching myself that I really need to get into it. Mind you I have been buying card stock and whatnots and accumulating pics, but yet to do anything…sheesh. Your weekend was definitely a great start to the New Year.

10 cards and a 2-page layout is pretty productive at a crop!
