Last day

of September and it's a gorgeous bright sunny day. This can mean only one thing, as from tomorrow we can properly start counting down to the crop.

This month's sponsored class is from A Work in Progress Designs by Vicki. The kit features hybrid elements created especially for our crop class using the 'Colour My World' Kit.

The full 'Colour My World' kit and all the other gorgeous designs by Vicki can be found at A Work in Progress.

So what are you going to get in you kit? Well feast your eyes on this little lot.

We think that one or two B&W photos would work really well with this kit however as always it's your choice.

So what do you do

if you can't find the camera that has all the crop photos on .........................................................................


and of course keeping looking.

But all is well now as camera and said images are found so I can at last share a little of what we got up to last Saturday.

We love the oversized roll of double size tape Queenie had with her, so if you're ever in need you know who to ask!

There was lots of scrapping going on throughout the day however everyone was either too busy to share or too shy. If you have a LO, project or card that you want to share please ask and we're always happy to photograph it on the day or you could email, link to your own gallery/blog we could share that way.

Of course as we had our September crop sooooooooo early it means that Octobers crop now seems like an age away, 5 weeks (34 sleeps) from from today, not that we're wishing time away or anything!!!!

Oh my

it's only 2 more sleeps (except for Jane!) before crop day.

We'd like to confirm that the ScrapaGoGo shop will be at the crop on Saturday, so you'll need to bring some extra pennies if you want to grab yourselves some bargains as all stock is 30% off with the exception of any kits.

We're looking forward to seeing you all real soon.

Totally gorgeous, don't you agree?

In case you're wondering Nicola's photos are 3" x 4" landscape. 

Email Copy As Requested

Below is a copy of the latest email as requested we have popped it on the Blog too:D

Hi Ladies,

We do hope that those of you that came along to August's Crop had
a lovely day,we sure did and can't wait until September 11th when
we meet again!

Please can we ask that you REPLY to this email to let us know if you can
or can not make it on September 11th, although we have been running an
'opt out' system it has got a little complicated so for peace of mind and
to ensure we have everything covered it would be great if you can simply
answer yes/no for next month.

Next month's kit will be sponsored by Jillibean Soup and we will be having
a little technique class running alongside the kit if you would like to
use it with the supplies or independant of the kit - the choice will be

Keep an eye on on the Blog for more information, peeks and any extra 'what
to brings'!

See you soon,

stops her being able to come each month but our friend Sheena likes to play along with the sketch challenge.

Sheena has kept pretty true to the original sketch but flipped it over to better suit her design.

Sheena's supplies for this LO include papers by Bo Bunny Peacock Lane, Prima flower, Elles Studio journaling card and American Craft thickers.

Check out Sheena's Blog for all the details.

has dug out some stash that she's been hoarding for some time to create this sketch LO, in fact we think that some of it could be as old as the photo!

Don't forget to pop back soon as we'll be sharing details of the Jillibean Soup sponsored class kit and also the ScrapaGoGo Page Kit available this month.

With only 8 sleeps to go, is anyone getting excited yet?
