( just a quick update for my family who reads my blog...Grandma was released from the hospital yesterday in good condition! She has some follow up appt's to go to but she seems good and in much better spirits now that she's home! )
...so, on saturday i went out to my friend ( and fellow Slice Girl ) Tracy's house to have an all day crop! Yep, it was a fun, fun and super relaxing day I'll tell you! you don't know how much you need a day like that until it is actually happening...ya know?
and i mean ALL DAY...make the most of it when you can! i got there around 11:30am and left at 12:20am...13 hours of girlie fun!
so here's a peek at some of my layouts i did...
yep...what would my layouts be now without some hand cut felt shapes or letters, stitching or buttons somewhere!!! hahaha!
...these ones just make me CRAVE summer so bad!
So cool...so fun to play with too!
Can't wait til we can have another Slice Girl Crop!
this is all my 'stuff' packed up at the door...i can see the layout now...
