June Crop

~Hiya all,
~We had our crop at the weekend and I was a good one. Helen very kindly did a stampin up demo for us and alot of us spent WAY to much money on products - I bought some animal stamps, I cannot wait for them to come. Here are some pics of the demo........

~This was the first group to take part, we made a wee gift box using the stampin up products.......
~Here is Christine using one of the tree stamps for her gift box.......

~Here is a picture of the hall, doesn't everyone look busy?? We did have a good crop this month, and everyone seemed busy doing layouts, minibooks and cards....... and of course......

March Cropping

Hiya all,

Jay has asked me to do the post for the March Kirkcaldy Fife Crop, so I've become a contributor so expect to see more of me around these parts (lol). Our Easter Mega Crop was a fab one, with great food (thanks Angie and all who baked and provided chocolate), eggscelent class and fun games (thanks Jane) and fabulous company all around.

Before the crop we were asked to blow out some eggs (a gorgeous job) and decorate them for the Easter tree that Helen made especially for the crop; the eggs would be judged by Helen.
The winners of the competition and winning some fabulous prizes were Lorna in 1st place.......
Judi in 2nd......
And Tracey in 3rd........By lunchtime I think everyone was starving from all the games and laughing, and generally having a good time, and the food was amazing........... (this is everyone gathering around waiting to eat!!!)
Then in the afternoon we did a lovely class with Jane, which was fab. It was making easter gift boxes, which come in very handy especially if you have lots of nephews.........All in all the crop was great, everyone had a lovely time and I can't wait for the next one.
