Are you counting the days?

To the next crop of course, we make it only 12 days! Now that's either exciting or scary depending on what you have to get done before the day.

You want the next sketch challenge? Well here you go.

Nicola has dished up a 'Yummy' treat for us ...........

mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, now doesn't that look good enough to eat!!! As always it'll be at the crop to view up close but no nibbling

If you play along, do send us a link and we can feature you tasty creation.

In the 'blink of an eye'

August's crop day was over but what a day it was.

First thing we had all the excitement of ScrapaGoGo's Golden Ticket draw that was won by none other than Margaret one of our regular croppers.

It was then business as normal including plenty of scrappin', chatting and drinking of tea and coffee. Plus the odd slice of cake!

Here's a snap shot of the day.

The American Crafts sponsored class was well received with several members choosing to create the class LO and others opting to do their own thing. We managed to get photos of some of the LOs completed on the day, so feast your eyes on this lot.

We hope you had as much fun as we did and are all looking forward to the next crop on Saturday 11th September. That's just under a fortnight away!

I spy

April's 'Fabrication' ScrapaGoGo Kit being used up by Janice's in her take on this months sketch. The LO definitely has the wow factor as does Katie with that rather daring 'off the shoulder' fashion statement.

You like a bargain right?

Well we know that at £3 the ScrapaGoGo Page Kits are a bargain anyway but this month's Page Kit not only has everything you'll need (including instructions) to make one LO but second one as well. Now that should keep you busy.

Janice's LO is pretty and feminine and features 2 sepia  6" x 4" portrait photos although 'soft' coloured photos would work equally well.

Whereas Lorraine has created a LO with a much more masculine feel because we know you like to scrap the men/boys in your lives. Having said that you'll have to be there on the day cause she's keeping a closely guarded secret.

Check it out.......

Nicola has been playing with some rather lush American Crafts Dear Lizzy stash to come up with this gorgeous little number.

The eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed than Nicola has turned the sketch to give another look to the same sketch.

Do pop back for more news real soon.

If you can't join us ........

then playing along using the sketch must be the the next best thing surely?

Sheena's been playing along and this delicious creation is what she came up with. Only problem is I now need strawberries, I wonder where the nearest shop that's open is! 

Thanks for playing along Sheena.

Is Eileen's interpretations of this month's sketch, she has opted to use one larger photo rather than the 3 in the sketch.

Which just goes to show that you needn't be a slave to the sketch, let it be a jump start for your creativity.
So go on, dig out your supplies and see what you can come up with :)

Oh and don't forget we always love to see your LO so send us a link.
