Good Morning all you Crafty Ladies! It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks! Right before my Birthday/Anniversary trip to Vegas Amy Billings and I had put out word to the scrapper world that we would be hosting a scrapbook event. Well, we were very busy getting sign-ups before I left and wow Amy did a great job holding down the fort while I was gone. I will take you back several months... Amy and I had been talking about how successful her crop, Cropping on the Red, had become and that many ladies had asked her to do another one. That's when we decided to team up and have one in the Lake Charles area. I had many clients asking for me to do something either teach classes or something in the Lake Charles area. So the search began...we check hotels, civic centers etc... It was so much fun searching for the right place, and boy did we find the most perfect, clean, NEW place ever! The West Cal Event Center. We are super excited about hosting this annual event! We have had enough response to be able to rent out the second hall- THANK YOU LADIES for the overwhelming response! We have 97 ladies on the books right now and we still have 6 months to plan. The event center is located in Sulphur which is about 10 minutes to the West of Lake Charles. There will be 30+ hours of cropping fun, make-n-takes, sussies and 2 scrapbook vendors; Scrap Attack and Christy Bourgeous Designs and a few smaller vendors such as Toadilly Scrappin' Kits- Wendy Reaux and CTMH-Donna Lanclos. There are going to be so many give-aways it will make your scrappy little hearts flutter! We have 4 fantastic retreat give-aways, product give-aways and well a crop without a contest wouldn't be a crop right? We will give away a spot to the next years crop with this contest...details to come later. If you are interested in finding out more information, hotel information etc...please find us on Facebook at: www.facebook/2craftychicksinsulphur Stay tuned as more information about the crop is released! Again many thanks to the ladies that have signed up, you are making our dreams come true!
Sincerely and Happy Scrapping...
Wendy Reaux and Amy Billings

Hello All you Scrappy Ladies!!! Yes facebook is a complete buzz...so much excitement about this NEW crop that will be held at the West Cal Event Center. You won't want to miss it, the facility is one of the nicest I've seen!
I will update this blog next week with all of the information concerning the crop and hotel facilities. So please check back. If you are in need of the informaton now, please check out our FB page: https://www.facebook.com/2craftychicksinsulphur
This remarkable young lady designed all the backdrops for her Junior Prom. She is so beautiful inside and out. Look at her super cute little date and how he posed for her.
I'm sorry I don't post the best pictures in the world, but you get the point...right! I am always so busy that I just snap these as fast as possible with my phone and as you can see they stink but I just wanted to share with you all some of my layouts I am working on for my client.
Well, I find myself up way past my bedtime. The boys have started school this week and being that they are both at new schools we have to wake up a bit earlier to get there. So with that said this is going to be a short blog post.
Check out all the cool embellishments I have made with the Silhouette. Love this machine! Lots of fun to play with!
The spinner is a Leaky Shed chipboard diecut. Love it!
Love the lightbulb paperclips!
Love this Pink Paislee paper, it had punched out circles on it, which I didn't realize until it came it, it made the paper even more fun!
Love these 3-D pages... I racked up when I went to Gigi's I bought several of them in all different themes!
The baseball is from the Silhoutte.
My baby boy is now a High Schooler!!!
Love the title and the kayak...
I made this layout for my new little edition to our family. I even crochet(ed)? around the paper, one of my favorite things to do.
As you can see I am digging the Silhouette. I am a very theme-y scrapper. I think this is because I scrap for clients and this is what they like and I have grown to like it too! I feel the paper lines have gotten away from some of the themed things, so when you can't find what your looking for- I promise the Silhouette will fix you up!
Well, this kit was a HIT with all of my customers! I was overwhelmed by all of the orders, I even got my first order for 2 kits all the way from New York! A few friends put their layouts together recently and wow I must say they all looked fantastic! This kit was such a great deal, it had 10+ pieces of paper plus lots of fun embellishments and what beach layout would be complete with out sand and shells from the beach!
On one of our trips to the beach this summer, I enjoyed each day combing the sand for seashells. Where we were staying there were tons of them each morning and afternoon.
I used the new Tim Holtz: Sand and Sea diecut! It is super cute!
I am in the works for a class/kit that I will be teaching/selling at the Glitter Girlz event in Pineville. I can't wait to show you the layout. I also have another kit in the works...and will show you the outcome when its ready!
I invite you to look around and enjoy my crafty little blog. I have been scrapbooking since high school, but of course I have been officially scrapbooking (the real deal) since 1999. Please feel free to leave me messages or comments!
