New Crop at...

...Craftily Creative.

We have a small craft shop locally and the owner Helen has been very receptive to stocking scrapbooking bits even though she is mainly a 'card' person. She has done daytime classes for card making for some time now but we have been trying to convince her to venture into the world of evening crops - last night was the first :o)

We didn't know what to expect as far as class projects and at first glance the LO shown seemed a bit basic but the PPs were very pretty...chocolate & we all got stuck in.

Here is my finished LO. I think the PPs are HOTP Chocolate collection.

With hidden bits...........

My LO doesn't look very much like the original but then that's the fun of scrapping, isn't it LOL we each adapt what we see to meet our needs and tastes.

There were 16 in the class (very cosy cos it is quite a small shop) and a mix of complete Newbies and some very experienced scrappers. Helen was concerned about catering for such a wide range of skills but I think it worked out well and everyone enjoyed the evening.

Two weeks to wait 'til the next...I wonder if we can pursuade her to 'go weekly'?...................................LOL
