Crop & Create Ottawa 2012

I had the absolute pleasure of attending Crop & Create Ottawa 2012 a few weeks ago.  Crop & Create is an annual scrapbooking even hosted by Scrapbook & Cards Today.  They travel across Canada hitting up major cities and this year Ottawa was on their scrapbooking radar.  It is a weekend of cropping, fun challenges, classes,  and make n' takes.  During the weekend I took in one class by the ever amazing Kelly Goree, I was super happy with the results (but have yet to put photos on those layouts that I completed).  I took part in most of the challenges they had going on. Here are a few of the layouts that I entered.

The first layout is called Little Squirt - this was a sketch challenge, and I stretched the sketch over two pages.  I used the For The Record collection by Echo Park for both of these layouts.

The second layout, I titled Youthful, was a colour palette challenge and I decided to do a photo of my mother in her youth.  She is going through a very tough time right now, and I might just give her this layout to brighten her day.



  1. Both sets of pix and design are great. Mom will be thrilled to have something like this, trust me, I'm a Mom and still have the desk blotter my daughter scrapped for me six years ago!

  2. She never got to see this layout - I know she would have loved it ... she died on October 25th, just 10 days after I posted this layout online. I miss her dearly. She was a big fan of my scrapbooking.
