If you follow Me on Twitter @FynesDesigns or on my Facebook Page you’d know I was away in Moncton at Scrapbook and Cards Today’s Crop and Create for the weekend. What is Crop and Create you ask? It is two awesome days jam-packed (I mean to the top) of inspiration, education, creativity and fun (and did I mention desserts?). It is the only paper crafting (scrapbooking/ cards) event of its kind/magnitude in the Maritimes, you won’t find another one like it! There were AH-mazing goodie bags and prizes, loads of time to work on personal projects, a marketplace (with not one but 3 stores), classes by some of the top Scrapbooking celebs, and kicking accommodations, meals, and snacks at the Delta Beausejour.
We all know the rule of ‘what happens at the crop stays at the crop’, and I don’t want to spoil all the goodness of this event if you haven’t gone before but I can’t go without sharing some of the great photos and fun.
Those are not fake smiles you’re seeing folks, that’s the real deal! Did you catch a look at those desserts? Delta you know my soft spot! One of the best weekends I’ve had (close second to my honeymoon j/k)! I can’t wait to go back, I’d love to see you next year! This event is perfect for the beginner and advanced scraper or card maker there is something for everyone; challenges, shopping, techniques to learn, desserts to eat! Not in the Maritimes? No problem, Crop and Create is on Canadian crop circuit from East to West check out a location near you. This event would not be possible without the help of the generous support of the awesome sponsors, have a look below:
What did I create at this fantastic event? I don’t want to take credit for the hard work of the instructors so I thought I’d share some of my favourite projects from the pages of my book:
I hope to see you at Crop and Create 2014. If you’re wondering if it is worth it, I’d say every penny, an event you’ll NEVER forget!
