Crop for the Cure

This past Saturday, I got to attend an all day scrapping event, Crop for the Cure!  It was so much fun and this was my second year to attend.  The lady who hosted the event raised around $1,500 for Breast Cancer awareness, which is pretty awesome!!  There were various Scrapbooking vendors, giveaways, and a silent auction.  I won the kit contest for one of the LSS for the 2nd year in a row and got a $20 gift certificate to shop in their store.  My friend Cori won 1st place this year, so we'll both be making a trip to buy some scrappy goodies!  Big Smile  Of course, my favorite part of the day was the shopping!!  I bought the new Victoria Gardens kit from Echo Park-which I have been drooling over since it came out-and some yummy Jillibean Papers, and several sheets of the Blissful collection from Authentique (btw, the lady from the Scrapbook store didn't even know how to pronounce the name of the company and asked me how to say it!!!  SCARY!)

So here are the pages I finished (and I'll be posting them in the Gallery).  Between being slow, talking, and shopping, I only finished 5 pages, but it was still a lot of fun!  I can only post 4 of the 5, because one is for a later reveal for SLS.
