Croppin Fun In Bowie Maryland Saturday 10-11-2014

Saturday 10-11-2014, I went to a crop in Bowie, Maryland hosted by Crop Mania.  It was fun.  Good food, socializing and a free table that I kept visiting.  Someone gave away mini books, blank card packs, alpha stickers, stamps and etc.  And guess what?  My Fall layouts won a prize.  Whoohooo!  We were to put our favorite layouts on a table to be voted on by all the people at the crop.

I got a couple of challenges completed.  Here they are:

I did the October "White With 1" challenge using a sketch from Page Drafts 35.1,

I also did the October "Black With 2" challenge,

Lastly, I did the October week 1 "Lets Get Sketchy" challenge,

Here is a layout I created not based on a sketch or for a challenge.  I was just inspired by Echo Park's "Reflections Fall" collection.

A Super Fun Williamsburg Scrap Retreat: 10-3-2014 to 10-5-2014

This past weekend I went to a super fun scrap retreat hosted by Meka Matthews in Williamsburg, VA at the Holiday Inn Patriot.  I got some scrapbooking done, went shopping, out to eat several times, and just hanging with some wonderful ladies.  I even won some prizes.  I won a USB pink fan.  I also won a competition where we had to design a card with our name on it; basically making a name plate.

I put my last name since Monique was too long to use.  Here is what won:

Here is my prize:

Here are some pics taken this past weekend:

This is my favorite that I created over the weekend using goodies by Heidi Swap.  It is a layout of my son and his daddy (my ex).  I took this pic after my sons graduation from elementary school back in June.
