I finally went to a crop a couple weeks ago in Chino, CA. I had not cropped in months!! I spent most of the day talking and eating but I was able to get this layout completed, adding the title once I got home:

I …let me rephrase that.

Xaver. and Katie. packed for me to go to the crop. I wasn't sure what I was going to make and what photos I would use since I was bringing along my photo printer so I had no idea what embellies to bring. 

So they packed my Epiphany Crafts Shape Studios for me along with some accessories, like the Cabana Vintage Settings I used on this page! Duh–it was such a simple solution. I made my embellies at the crop, as I needed them and in shapes that matched the theme. And I only had to bring ONE bag with me to the crop!!
