Some announcements for you:

Queen of the Crop: The Queen of the Crop is chosen by a layout contest, judged by all the croppers present. The theme of this crop’s layout is “Nothing Compares 2 U.” This is merely the theme and it does not have to be your title. It can be a one or two page layout, using anything you want. It will be due Friday evening, so you can either do it ahead of time and bring it with you, or do it during the crop Friday. If you have any questions, either email Jessica or post to the blog.

Special Events: We have a few special guests who will be visiting, bringing goodies, make and takes and more with them! Friday Night is PJ night … bring you favorite cropping PJs and plan to wear them after supper! We will also have a Midnight Madness shopping trip to a local sponsor store. Stay tuned for details! And Saturday Night is “The Scrappies.” This is an “awards show” and dessert night where we will announce the winners of our different contests, including Queen of the Crop! Be sure to bring your camera! Questions? Email Jessica or post to the blog!

Music: If you have an iPod with your favorite music, please bring it. We will have an iPod dock and speakers and rotate the tunes throughout the weekend.

Massage Therapy: Don’t forget that Melissa will be available Friday afternoon and Saturday for massage therapy. She is offering them for $1 per minute, 10 minute minimum. She also has a special offer of 90 minutes for $85. We will verify the hours that Melissa is available and then send out an email for time slot sign ups. I had two massage session from her last time and she was fabulous!

Swap Table: We will have a table set up for you to put any unwanted items you’d like to trade with other croppers or donate to the Children’s Hospital of Orange County. Add your items to the table, take what you want that is on there … anything that is left will be given to the kids at CHOC for their memory project programs. If you have questions, email Nan or post to the blog!

Lunches: While breakfast, snacks and dinner will be provided at the crop, lunch will not be provided. However, there are many fast food places and restaurants in the area. Also, each room has a refrigerator, microwave and stove top if you’d like to cook in your room.

Ribbon exchange: Love ribbon? Got lots of it? Want more? Bring 10 lengths of decorative ribbon, cut in 1-yard lengths, to swap with other croppers. No “Spool O Ribbon” or other, similar simple or plain ribbons. A number of us swapped in April and had a great time! Of you have questions, email Jessica, or post to the blog!

I can't believe it is almost time. The months have flown by. For snacks, I like a combo of healthy and not so. Healthy like pretzals,little carrots or grapes. For unhealthy treat love m&m's. Also hot tamales,junior mints. I like unsweet ice tea and water but need them to be cold or have ice available. I am planning to have a 40 minute massage but don't care which day. I don't expect anything from the crop but great comraderie,getting some scapping done and learning new things from others. It would be super if there were any demo's or mini class on new things or technique. See you all soon!
