Only 42 days till our cruise!! Hello how nice is that?

Well I have to give a big thanks to Shandra, Kathy, Diann, Susan, Marissa, Mandy, Michielle, Liz and Tracy for the wonderful birthday dinner at Kobe's last night.
And to Steff, Sarah, Renee, Kristy and the rest of the Attic Croppers for a fun night last night and to ALL of you for the great gifts. Diann made a special coaster just for me that reads "Be nice to me, skinny bitches are people too!" Soo Fitting.

So to the organizational posts and I will throw in a few pics from last night. This week I will be working along side you. Its embellishment week. I have created a basket full that I did not hang back up on my Clip It Up I know naughty naughty. So what we do in class and what I do at home is dump out the basket and divide into categories. Alphabets, Bellies (such as brads, eyelets, button etc) Flowers, Girly (or boy if you dont have the girls) Holidays, Love (which could go into holidays) Quotes and Miscellaneous.

Next I sort all the stuff into these categories, you could go farther and sort all your alphabets by letter and group more than one letter together in a zip loc. ALL of my brads, buttons, flowers are sorted and grouped by color. This works best for me because when I go to embellish a layout I know what colors I want to do it with so I get those bags and dump em out and pick out what I want.

Set aside a good amount of time for this, I know this seems daunting but it will all lead up to getting our page kits ready for Spring Crop Camp!! I will post pics soon I have tried twice now and blogger is busy DARNIT!
