Croptober-fest -- Here We Go!

Are you ready? Got your photos? Got your kits? Got adhesives at the ready? Great . . . then let's get this party started!! First, there are great challenges coming your way this month, along with an online crop during the weekend of October 10th -- so block out some time for yourself now because it'll be here before you know it. This weekend, especially, the slow cooker will be your best friend! We're planning a little blog hop at the end of the month to those ladies who participated in Croptober-fest. If you'd like to have your blog hopped to, email your blog address and as we get closer to the end of the month I'll email the blog hop list so you can be ready. There's even prizes for doing nothing -- how great is that? If you aren't already a registered "follower" of the Apron Strings blog, you may want to do that. Get registered that is, because a little witch is going to be cooking up some great fun by adding the name of a follower to her boiling cauldron at least once a week. No, not like the "I'm going to cook you with carrots and potatoes, my pretty" kind of way, this is a good thing because that lucky person will be the recipient of a little goodie! See fun!! We're going to start with a great sketch by Shawn Lahr, from Nuts About Sketches (a favorite here at Apron Strings because her sketches are very usable and she provides photo sizes). I'm a big fan of multi-photo layouts, so I'm going for a sketch with six. Shawn's design team is wonderful, if you need a jump off, you can find the examples using this sketch here.

To be eligible for the first Croptober-fest Cookie Treat, link your layout to the comment section of this post by Friday evening. Then be sure to clear a spot on your scrapbooking table and get ready for the next challenge.

Let's have some fun ladies!!
