So bummed...

Hi, ladies:

I am so bummed I won't be able to attend November's C2R crop! And I am so jealous of all the pages you will get done (except for maybe Judy ...)! Thanks to the U.S. Marine Corps I am now living in Pensacola, FL, AKA "Florabama." No joke, this is really what the region is called... named after a a longtime bar here... hilarious! Anyway, I will, of course, extend a pre-crop shopping discount on the Kits2Remember web site. Nan and Naomi will email out all the details as the crop gets closer and then I will ship all the goodies to them so they can hand it out to you! Aside from chipboard and acrylic (plus project kits, of course), K2R also has metal sheets now, too... be sure to check them out.
As for me, we are settling in to Florabama quite well. I love my house and even have a scrap studio office. I have been spending a lot of time on California, lately though, simply because of prior scrappy commitments I made for the remainder of the year. One of them was being selected to teach at the premier scrap event, Creative Escape, with the likes of Heidi Swapp and Tim Holtz. It was an amazing experience. If you care to read more about it, please visit my blog. Longtime C2R sponsor store The Red Bee, in Tustin, sponsored me when I entered the Talent Treasure Hunt contest. Here is a picture of me with The Red Bee's owner, Karen (right) and one of the stores employees, Echo. They got free tickets to the event because I won. Whoo-hoo for everyone!

I will also be at three California events in October: Long Beach ScrapFest, the Sacramento Scrapbook Expo and the Ontario Scrapbook Expo. Hopefully I will see some of you then! I had hoped I could stretch my visit out to C2R, but my usually supportive DH was starting to protest my being gone over a month...

And, of course, please stay in touch. The best email to reach me at is I hope to hear from you, even if it is just to say 'hi' and tell me what you're up to. I miss my C2R friends and hope I might be able to attend a spring crop, if the timing is right. I'll be back in California quite a bit next year too! Have great time in November and, if you think about it, send a "shout out" while you're cropping! I know someone there will have her laptop!

oh Jessica, we will really miss you ! I was really hoping you'd be there but something tells me Nan & Naomi will keep us busy and try to distract us so we don't get too sad :-(

See you in Ontario !

I am so sad now I have to go to the Sac expo. That is not fair. It definately not be the same without you. Not that Nan and Naomi don't know how to party, but the 3 musketeers just wouldn't be the same if one was missing, the same goes for the Cropateers!!! I don't think I can fill your shoes. It is definatly going to take some work! But I will accept the challange!

Just kidding, noone can replace you!

I'll scrap a page for you!
