I so enjoy a challenge...

For National Scrapbook Day I attended a crop at Two Scrapbook Friends. I originally said 'no' to going because it has been a rather scrap happy month but I caved (twist my rubber arm) when a couple of friends said they were going. I had to go for Friday to give my family some time with me over the weekend. When we arrived we were told about a bingo challenge they were running throughout the night. Get a line, get a prize. Who doesn't like prizes??? Then we were told if you get a full card there was another prize. My friend Darcy got right to work. She was a machine! Afer completing 4 layouts she had completed her card. She won a great prize of new adhesives and pop dots. I realized I was pretty close too so I pushed to finish and won as well. HOORAY!! Those who know me know what a pop dot addict I am so it was the best prize for me. Anyhoo, it was a great night with yummy food from Ennio's and hilarious conversation with the ladies sitting at our table. It's always so fun to get together with fellow scrappers and just enjoy our addiction together!

Here's the bingo card:

And here's the two layous I completed using everything on the card! (try and spot them all in the layouts)
This layout of my friend Jessica's girls is from them getting caught throwing Easter grass all over their house (my boys were also involved!)It is also based on a sketch by Joanne as part of the National Scrapbook Day challenges on the blog. If you need some inspiration have a look.

I have always wanted to do a layout incorporating one of the boys' drawings. As I was saying to the ladies at my table this is not one of my favourite layouts in terms of composition. One of them pointed out that it will be a favourite when I look back on it though.

After the craziness of trying to get the bingo card filled I managed to finish one more simple layout using some MME from last year.
I had planned to put ribbon with these tags but it wasn't doing it for me so I shredded the grosgrain and stuck it randomly under the buttons. Never done that before!
Another great crop at TSF. Can't wait for the next one!

Wonderful layouts Shelby. Sounds like you had a ton of fun! The other 2 crops went great as well. We had one lady at the crop on Saturday that did the entire bingo card on one layout. It was amazing.
