Something new

So for the past couple of years I have dabbled a little bit in basket making.  Usually I make them in a group or class effort.  Today however I decided to try my hand and making my own basket.  I didn't have a pattern or instructions for this basket. Granted it is a small napkin sized basket but that is what I wanted to make.  I think that it turned out really cute.  I make have to make some more up for gifts.  They would be perfect to place small themed items in for a gift holder.

March pages done

Just a few of the layout I have created this month.  So excited, Sarah's cheer album is almost complete. I just need to scrap the pages from the awards potluck this past week.  Will get them done as soon as they come in.

Grace Crop March 2011

We have started hosting  27 hour crops at our churches campgrounds.  The camp has two retreat centers.  These centers have a large area that is perfect for cropping, A fully stocked kitchen, two bunk areas that both sleep 20, two bathrooms and showers.  Just perfect for  a group of scrappers who need to get a lot done.  We usually start around 4:00 pm on a Friday night and go until 7:00 pm on Saturday.  Every time we have a crop the planners ( myself and two other ladies) try to do something different.  We have had make n takes, contests, prize drawings and this time t-shirts.  Normally we have between 20-30 scrappers but this time around only 10 were able to make it.  A great time was had by all and we have decided to try and expand from twice a year to three times a year.  Plus we are going to try and have a 2 night 3 day crop this summer.

I am so excited to be designing for a new sketch challenge.  There are several wonderful designers on this site so make sure that you check out this blog and all of the wonderful designers.  Head over to The Scrapping Stamper to see all of the creative ideas.  Here is the March sketch.

  And my take on it.  Sarah was a member of the pit for the high school musical.  They performed the Music Man.  Since I couldn't get a picture of the pit I chose to scrap this cast picture instead.
