"Last one to £100 is a sissy!"

What a weekend! The first one of every month is always pretty hectic, as me and some of my crafty friends have a craft day on the Saturday and go to a crop on the Sunday. Karma-Sy travels down from London, so it makes sense for her to combine the two days into one trip, but it does make for an exhausting weekend :-)

This time was even more hectic than usual, as we had decided to go on a shopping trip to a craft shop, to make up for not being able to get to the Ally Pally stamping and scrapbooking show. Karma-Sy and KraftyKaren had never been to the Glitter Pot (in Scaynes Hill) and I had told them how great it is, so that was where we headed as soon as KraftyKaren got to my place on the Saturday morning. With the battle cry of "Last one to £100 is a sissy!", in we went..........

Well, I came in under budget - ahem - it was a large budget :-) Karma-Sy won the sissy title as she never even got close to the £100 :-) I spent most of the rest of the day admiring what I had bought, and printing photos to make up page kits for the next day's crop.

On Sunday we went off to the crop in Polegate, run by Jilly of Cardinal Colours. I managed to finish two LOs and almost complete four others, they just need titles and a bit of journalling.

I now need to reach my monthly challenge target of 10 layouts, 4 down, 6 to go!


  1. Great lo there Wendy and well done on another post :)

  2. I love that layout - you have almost used Pink Wendy LOL!! Yes the first weekend of the month is always a busy one but at least it means Sy doesn't have to travel down twice in a month and it means we have more crafting get-togethers.

  3. Hi, it's me, the sissy! Have I opened the bag yet? No. Am I dying to? Yes!! Ah well... maybe later... :)

    I have arrived, blog's looking good from this side too! Where's your "latest stash" box? Or are you afraid you'll fill it so full it'll explode all over the rest of the blog? :) hee hee...
