SO Excited for Saturday's Scrapping Day!

I have spent the day getting ready for tomorrow crop day at my house. SO MUCH FUN! I made everyone cute daisy boxes, adn I filled them with chocolate, caramel, and scrapping items. I can't wait to give them to them!

I have 4 people coming tomorrow. My sister Linda, my mother-in-law Sharon, and to of my nieces Jessica and Kristina. it has been so long since I've been able to scrap with them! Last October was the last time, and that's just TOO long! I've been to a couple afternoon crops with my mother-in-law, but nothing else. As you can see from the picture above, I plan on getting a lot of work done!
Click that picture below, and you'll see two pink items in the basket of sponges. One is a "Girl's Hall Pass." That is absolutely necessary at my house. Can't go if you don't take the pass! Next is a giant hand clapper - that even flashes! You must clap when you finish a page, and then you have to show it and explain it. Because then we get to clap for the creator!!

I didn't want people to waste time trottin into my craft room, so all my stamps, punches, and machines are out for everyone to use.

Now the last picture is of my kitchen while I was preparing food. I don't want to waste any time in the kitchen, so I do make ahead meals for the day. Egg Bake for brunch ( made with egg beaters for my sister) along with muffins (filled with carrots, raisins, coconut, and pecans) and chocolate chip banana bread. Then a 10-layer crockpot casserole with Tastefully Simple beer bread for afternoon lunch. The most important ingredient sitting on my counter is that bottle of diet Mountain Dew. It's what has kept me running since 7:00 am this morning!!

Surely will be a fun day of gabbing and laughing!! I will share pictures sometime this weekend!!
