Although i didn't win anything I had a blast completing the challenges.  NSD weekend was a busy one for me between challenges, Dancing for Big Buddy and leaving for the beach the following day. I continued the SC challenges(along with working on Isabelle's dance album) while at the beach throughout the next week.

My NSD week concluded with an all day crop at my local Micheals the following Saturday.  I have mixed feelings about Micheals crops.  This was my first (as it was from most of us that attended) but i felt it was kinda thrown together.  Which was surprising because i began to get the emails about the event a week prior.  I arrived when it started at 9am but many trickled in throughout the day.  By the end they had 12 of use crammed into a small room with only 4 tables.  All in all the day was still productive.  I got a handful more of pages down for Isabelle's dance album plus 2 more layouts.  I also learned a lot from my fellow croppers, which for me is the whole reason i attend these type of events.  This would be were my Silhouette vs Cricut dilemma all started.  More on this in the previous post!
