Croptopia Day 2 Layout Featuring Close to My Heart Flip Flaps

Happy Tuesday and happy Tax Day to my U.S. readers. I hope you all get refunds! I realized this weekend that I never wrote a review of Day 2 of Croptopia. I guess that's because there wasn't much to say other than I got a few more pages done, one of them being this layout for the Giant's scrapbook project.

I love these CTMH Flip Flaps! Check them out at www.scrappinhounds.ctmh.com. If you decide to order, remember to join my April 27th Gathering before submitting your order!

Day 2 consisted of earning lots raffle tickets for the photo scavenger hunt, basket raffle, and layout contest.

Basket I donated to crop. Theme: A Whole Lotta Holtz. It contained paper, ink, and a lot of doodads.

I did not win a single prize...not shocking I can assure you. But overall, I had a good time. I wasn't as productive as I have been at other crops but at least I got a big project started (see Giant scrapbook project above).  I hope to have it done in time for my husband's birthday in June.  I do have one negative thing to report. I had a CTMH paper pack, "Balloon Ride," and my new Glue Dots dispenser stolen from me.  Who steals at a crop? I have never had this happen to me before. The organizer let us know at the beginning of the weekend that she had 3 Cricut cartridges stolen from the technology table at the last event she hosted. These particular cartridges sell for hundreds of dollars on eBay.

Do I need to worry about my stuff now at weekend crops? Have you ever been stolen from?

Thanks for stopping by and stay scrappy!
