Thank God for Crops

I can't tell you how blessed I am to have been able to attend a fabulous croptoberfest this past weekend.
I've been on overdrive with all of the life activities that having an active family brings, so it was nice and  refreshing to do something for me.

If you haven't been to a creative Memories crop that feature Paper Buffets and Project recipes I highly recommend attending one.  The awesome thing about the paper buffet is that you can pick and choose papers from different paper packs without having to commit to a whole pack.  So I pulled some of the ones that caught my eye to work with.  Utilizing the project recipes  takes the guess work out of cutting and assembling background.  Then all that was left was to stick down the photos.  Fast and simple.

So here's what I got done at the crop:  I'll showcase the CM paper and project recipes that were part of our crop.

Sugar Plum 

Made with Love

I  wanted to use the Recipe card as my journal space but it was on the flip side of my back ground paper, so I situated the cut so that it would be hidden by the top layer.  Also did the same with the cranberry cardstock.

This layout used papers from both Hocus Pocus  ( black and whit stripe and aqua w/dots) and Cake my day  ( paint splatter and diagonal stripe) which I grabbed during the buffet. 
 The colors coordinate so well that you wouldn't know they are from different lines.  Love the versatility 

Now for the layouts I did with TSR kits and Project Recipe layouts:
Carta Bella Christmas Delivery FOTM kit 12/2016

 Bella Blvd. Illustrated Faith FOTM kit 12/2016

MME Hello Gorgeous 3/2016 DS kit

And last but not least a Creative Memories Exclusive Croptober paper and cardstock layout and a sheet from Go, Fight, Win!
