Bromsgrove Crop & Use It Up Nos. 23 to 28

Hi all, it was another enjoyable day over in Bromsgrove on Saturday, where we had some new faces join us, and Liberty provided a fabulous lunch.

So welcome to Sally & Debbie who joined us for the 1st time, it was great to meet you both and and I hope will come back. Also Cleo brought her shop "Bellaboo" with loads of lovely goodies, I did resist but in the end got a few bits, but good for me because I only spent £8.00, mainly on Kraft Cardstock.

Well my page kit bags are working really well for me, and I managed to complete 6 layouts, finishing one at home. Bringing my total to 28 in my "Use It Up' challenge. I know I had a big spend last week at Ally Pally, but I've not used any of that stash yet, and still working my way through the page kits I had already done.

I'm also challenging myself to do at least 5 layouts with the current ScrapaGoGo kit each month.

So here are the layouts I did yesterday:-

ScrapaGoGo Sept 09 Kit - James - getting a tattoo at Twycross Zoo

ScrapaGoGo Sept 09 Kit - This was a photo I took whilst walking along the Brimingham Canal and entered into a competition and came 2nd over on UKS. This layout needs more details but can't decided what to do.

ScrapaGoGo Sept 09 Kit - Another photo from Twycross Zoo - Julie, James and Izzy enjoying a "Big Hug". This was a sketch challenge set be Debs at the crop to include, stitching and hand made embellishment.

Cosmo Cricket - Earth Love & Boyfriend - James when he was younger, pretending to be a Super hero like the ones on TV.

Sassafras Lass - Bungle Jungle Collection

Cosmo Cricket - Early Bird Collection - I'd been complaining to DH that has I've got older I don't get a birthday cake, but it is a bit awkward having my birthday on Christmas Eve, so last year when we went into town on Christmas Eve and stopped for a Coffee, this is what DH and DS got me - so I can't complain anymore that I didn't have a cake.

Thanks for stopping by ...

jackie these LOs are all gorgeous, and I am well impressed how far you've got in your challenge. I don't think I "officially" got even to number 2. So well done!

So pleased to see you doing so well in your challenge. All layouts? Wow. I only managed to reach my target because I made a batch of cards. Well done you and fabulous layouts. Can't believe how productive you are at the crop - you know me. I am happy if I manage to start a single layout!!!
