Happy National Scrapbooking Day!
Technically it's over. But let's pretened it's not.
My holiday started off with me waking up pretty late (I'd planned to be up and about by 10, but let's just say that DIDN'T happen). I then logged on to 2Ps and took part in some of their festivities.
And then I met up with Michelle, and we went to get some Thai food for lunch in Monterey Park. I came home with the leftovers. Anyhow. The girl was running on 1.5 hours of sleep, so she needed coffee. So we went to Starbucks.
We were planning on maybe scrapping at Starbucks. But we (or rather, I) decided that it was a really nice day outside so I suggested we go scrap at the park. Let me just say that moving Michelle's humongous crop supplies from the car to our little bench was quite hard because she had this much stuff -
(except for the tote bag and purple thing).
I'm sure she thought she escaped my camera. But I'm sneaky and evil. Besides I like this picture of her, so she'll just have to deal!
We made a huge mess - and our trash bag kept blowing away. LMAO.
And this is Mich and her masterpiece.
Which I think she's not yet done with? By the way for those who wonder how she does it - if you had her stash you would know. Besides, sticking a ton of embellishments on is pretty quick :P lol. Her process is stick stuff on. Well more like stick, don't like so crop down and mount on another sheet of paper, repeat. Still. It works. So. Awesomeness. I started at her for awhile at first in awe, hoping that some of that mojo would rub off on me....
Anyways. Cropping at the park was.....interesting? I mean better than the beach, where everything would probably blow into the water....but it was kind of windy sometimes. And by around 6:30, we were freezing. So we decided to go to our next adventure....
Which was more food. We went to Tokyo Lobby for Japanese. (thanks for dinnner, woman!) Yummy. She took the leftovers home this time.
Okay and then we wanted to crop some more. I suggested Tapioca Express. Which was actually a really good place to crop at, even though everyone kept staring at us. The manager guy (who me and my friends are pretty cool with) asked what we were doing and asked if we were art majors. Apparently, if you're an art major (he is) you do similar types of things by cutting up ads.
We made a mess there too -
I was really productive today, and finished 6.5 LOs (I have an unfinished one I did right before we left). Three of those were DT LOs, which I can't share quite yet. But let me tell you - kits are AWESOME for taking to crops. Easy to pack and everything is just there. Anyway. My total for the Crop Addict kit this month is insanely high (I think 5 LOs so far!) - because I love it so much! And I could probably crank out some more.
These are the LOs I CAN share -
So yeah. I was the one who took the most pictures today. Yayness. lol.
Hope y'all had a good NSD. Anyone do anything special?
I had a lot of fun today!! Mich - we need to do this again!
