I'm back from a fantastic weekend spent cropping with friends and family. Trish from WIP Kits hosts the best crop each November at the Bertram Inn in Aurora , Ohio. I look forward to having three days to catch up on my pages and socialize with my gal pals.That's my mom and my friend Dawn (who I have been friends with since 9th grade!) in the bottom of the picture. I was able to put a huge dent in my Disney Vacation book. I got through our 2010 trip and started in on our 2011 visit as well. I was able to make 18 pages. I need to go back and add the journaling and then scan all the pages. I never journal at a crop...I'm too busy talking out loud!
