On the weekend of February 10,11,12 and 13th i was asked by my friend Jessie to go to a crop out at Little Smokey AB, and for those of you who don't know where that is, it is near Valleyview AB. All i have to say is what an AMAZING bunch of ladies, and talented to say the least. I'm not just talking traditional scrapbooking either. The ladies there are a mixed crafting bunch! They copic create, scrapbook, digital scrapbook, quilt and do felting!!! This crop was just fabulous, and i didn't even mention the best part, you can bring your children, yes that's right your children!!! Now i know some of you are thinking what the heck would i get done with my kids there, but seriously i barely seen mine, im pretty sure they only emerged to eat and drink lol. And everything a kid could want was there, containers of toys, games, crafting, movies and a bunch of other kids to play with, and if it's nice out there is a huge playground right outside the door of the hall. I paid $10.00 a day and i slept there, my kids came, and all meals were provided there (we were given a list of things to grab, and handed them over when we got there) and it was 24 hour cropping if that's what you wanted to do. All i brought was snacks and sleeping bags and my scrap stuff!!! WHAT AN AWESOME DEAL!!!! And the food is some of the best i ever had...seriously! This cropping bunch is just a gem! By being able to bring your children, do you realize what kind of money you save on a sitter? I cannot think of a better deal to go scrapping!!! If you haven't been, it's a must go, trust me, i had an absolutely wonderful time!!!
