Fourth of July in 20 min or less

Okay I have another crop layout to share that I did in 20 or less.( kind of)

If you're like me and take everything , but the kitchen sink to a crop you know that it takes a while to figure out where you packed everything. Along with stopping to catch up on the latest happenings.-some of these ladies I haven't seen since this summer.  Hunting for the plug in for my cricut, dropping in my raffle ticket, getting a snack and reading through all the welcome stuff.  I think the whole thing might have taken an hour, but actual work time definitely under the 20 minute mark.

How  is it possible to get it done that quick?  The secret for me was
 sharing some of my stuff.  While looking for a cowboy themed  die cut  I found this pre made border in my stash.  Added a little ribbon on either sides,  doodling and some die cuts from the fire cracker I found while hunting for cowboy hats.. I got this quick and cute border.

I got 8 layouts done at the crop that was from 9-5pm.
Had to stop and share a couple of techniques and of course there were the hourly drawings and lunch
not to mention I didn't get there till about 9:30 so I averaged a layout every 45 minutes
some took less time, others more.

  You'll have to wait to see the other layouts as they are part of some of my DT work for

so stop by Breakfast at Tiffany's to share what you can get done in 20


  1. I giggled when I read your description of what happens at a crop before you actually start working. You hit the nail on the head. And my husband wonders why I don't accomplish more :)
