Thursday: Fruits of the Crop Day!

I have been not so good at sharing the layouts lately. Partly because I've been doing other things besides scrapbooking and partly because without the motivation to post them online, my poor layouts lie languishing without finishing touches and dates. Poor lonely layouts. This brings me to my idea for a new feature: fruits of the crop. Since I do most of my scrapbooking at crops with my sis now, I'm going to feature one or two layouts each Thursday. I hope you enjoy!

I love the bright colors of this K and Company line. So pretty! I used my Cricut for the slides and the circles. The white was free-hand cut. The stitckers are American Crafts, of course.

I keep thinking that I haven't scrapbooked many Maxton layouts recently, but as I was looking through my nearly finished stack, I had quite a few. I guess I just haven't been finishing Maxton layouts. Yesterday at the crop, I forgot to bring my cord for my Cricut. I was frustrated, as I use that thing on nearly every layout. Plus, I needless expended time and effort packing and carrying an Expression and all the carts to a crop in a huge, black suitcase. I was forced to free-hand cut the leaves and the @. I think it still looks pretty good though. The Paper is SEI, one of my favorite lines ever. Letter stickers are American Crafts.
