Estes Park Crop Weekend, April 2010

So, last weekend was the first Estes Park Crop Weekend, and it was a BLAST!!

Our house was perfect for a crop, with TWO living rooms and a nice kitchen & dining room, (plus 3 full bathrooms - perfect for a house full of women!)

We had some GORGEOUS views too!

This is the view from our back porch on Saturday morning:

The fog was rolling in, and you could see the tip of the mountain poking through the top of the fog:

It rained later that afternoon (perfect scrapbooking weather!) ;-)

Here's the gang (minus Suzanne) at dinner:

Hello Elk! (we saw SO much wildlife during our stay!)

On the way down the mountain, traffic came to an unusual stop:

What's holding things up??

A herd of BIG HORN RAMS!! SO COOL!!! (For those not familiar with driving up the mountain, this is a pretty rare sight!)

Oh, and this is what I got done over the weekend:

(These first 3 layouts were actually created by Jody at Capture. She designed them for a class back in November and I bought one of the kits. I just saved them for when I had time to scrapbook, then added my pics!)

Funny story about this layout...After I had finished laying everything out and then gluing it all down, I bumped my tool tote and knocked a dark brown ink pad FACE DOWN on the top, right where the white part is! I had to come up with something to hide it, so I made those two big snowflake embellishments at the top.) Whew! Crisis averted! ;-)

Notice the little red rhinestone on "Rudolph's" nose. :-)

I added Glossy Accents to the word "Wild":

For these snowflakes, I ran them through my Cuttlebug to emboss them (I used the Swiss Dots embossing folder) then I Stickled the dots with Diamond Stickles.

This snowflake shows some of the bling-y, Stickle-y goodness I have going on. What's a snowflake without Stickles?!? I just wish they photographed better. They're so pretty in real life!
