Helping to save the TA~TA's





Kelcey and I went to Tampa to a crop with some of the Hilltop gals. It was a SCRAPPINK CROP hosted at Ruban Rouge in Tampa. We started out Friday with a visit to Whims-a-Doodle scrapbook store in St. Pete. Next stop was checking in to the hotel, and then on to Ruban Rouge. Elle was there with Chalupa, and we chatted until the group started to gather. Friday night was just cropping and chatting, with a great dinner from an Italian restaurant. We didn't get back to the hotel until after midnite! Saturday we headed back to the crop and took a class by Leah Fung of Scrapbooks ETC ( I will post my project tomorrow) and it was really fun. Excellent class actually! We hung out all afternoon, and Jules and Janet even popped in for a little bit. DARN that Jules...she bought a raffle ticket and even won a prize!!!!!!
Poor Kip, Kelcey and I did not get one of the big prizes, but more tickets will be drawn on Tuesday. Last night, the crop ended around 6 so we headed back to the hotel to continue cropping. This morning, we took it easy and made a few stops along the way home. I will post some of the photos of projects later or tomorrow.
OOOOhhhh, Jules, Kelcey, Mary and I had a great little visit at the Italian restaurant for snacks and chat!
