Scrapbook weekend here I come!

It's time once again for my scrapbooking weekend with some fun friends. I'll be returning on Sunday, so have a great weekend! Below are some little boxes that my friend Carmen and I made for our cropping friends. Inside the boxes are some minty foot rub along with a pair of warm footy socks to wear while cropping and a pack of gum for that late night breath! Carmen's also going to pick up some gourmet cookies that are in the shape of a foot and they have tiny M & M's for the toes! Ack, I can't wait!! We tied the boxes up with some super cute ribbon and made a personalized, monogrammed tag inspired from one shown in a Stampin' Up! publication. Patterned paper is from SU!, letters are cut from Cricut, Prima flowers.
At the last minute, we came up with another fun idea....a scrapbook layout for each of us to complete at the crop. We made a simple, 2 page layout and included a sketch of how to assemble the pages. We're going to take photos during the crop, run them to the one hour photo place and then surprise our friend with these pages. The tag from the above photo will be used on the pages as the main accent. Fun, huh?
Well, I've got my Becky Higgins sketch book all packed so I'm ready to head out. I hope you all have a great weekend. I'll try to post something on Sunday but I'll be drop dead tired....we only sleep a few hours each night so that we can crop a ton of pages!!

Wanna give some advice? I am not much of a scrapbooker but would like to do more. I am going to a 12 hour crop that a CM consultant is having and I need some advice about what to take. I have a couple of incomplete scrapbooks that have been started and need work (my daughter's first year and a vacation) and I also have a couple of albums that need started (a birthday one and a Christmas one). I don't know what is a reasonable amount of stuff to take. Plus I am a stamper. Should I take stamp stuff? AND I have a SU scrappin' kit, would it be rude to take it to a CM event? I know, long question but I thought you could help! Thanks for any input you have time to share!

What gorgeous boxes! The ribbon looks like the the one you used on your Valentine boxes that Ellen Hutson sold, just a blue version. Where, oh where did you find such beautiful ribbon? (I ask because I purchased the Valentine box from Ellen and loved it!)

It sounds like so much fun! I am wondering what scrapbook sketch book you have from Becky Higgins, maybe she only has one.
