More snow that is what the weatherman is calling for again tonight!! I really don't know how much more of this stuff I can take and that is saying alot for a girl who is usually the happiest girl on earth when it starts to snow!! I have just reached the end of my proverbial rope per say and can't take anymore doom and gloom! Lol!! I did do something fun this weekend even though it is so blah out. My BFF Amy and I along with my Mom went to our local Archiver's for Scrap Mania and scrapped our little hearts out! I start to get really crabby when I don't get my scrapbooking time and let me tell you it was a much needed night away! I didn't get anymore then my total of one layout done but for the slowest scrapper in the world that is an accomplishment!! I used to go to these crops and only get a layout half finished so in my book I am definitely cruising now!! Ha Ha!! It was alot of fun at the crop as always and I was even lucky enough to win the layout contest! Here is the layout that I did and I have to give Amy some credit here too because the idea for the layout totally came while watching her work on her layout the last time we cropped together.
I just loved the way she was layering her patterned papers that she was using and I thought WOW that is perfect!! She was using a totally different line of paper but you know what I mean by "when you see someone using paper and putting it together a certain way that it just makes that little click noise in your head and the lightbulb comes on!!" well, that is totally what happened! This hobby is so awesome in that manner that we feed off from each others creativity! Amy is such a talented designer and I totally think she is my muse!! Love you Girl!!

Now, I have to tell you, I can't wait till this coming Friday Crop at Hannah's!!! I am just dying for it to be here already!! It is going to be a blast!! This will be the crop to be at in this area, let me tell you, because we are having one of the head Fiskateers coming and co-hosting the crop!! That means lots of goodies and learning some new techniques (which I can not live without!) along with it being time to crown our new "Queen of the Crop"!! Is it Friday yet? Lol!!

OK, enough of my madness for now!
Happily Scrappin',

If we get more snow then I'm done, I can't take another Midwest winter like this one.

Graet layout! Congrats on winning the contest. I'm really excited about the crop as well. I can't wait.
