"Croptoberfest"

CROP:
The scrapbooker's definition:
1. a. To cultivate boxes of photos that leave a lasting legacy for future generations.
1.b. to trim your photos to improve the composition.
2.a. A gathering of women to enjoy company of friends and work on their scrapbooks
2.b. A ploy to get out of the house and gather with friends (Bella Online)

Some friends come just to visit while others come to complete as many pages as possible. A crop is our opportunity to share tools, idea books, and inspiration.

TOBER: Shortened from October, this is the time of year we love to gather again to share summer pictures, relive the memories of the past few months, and focus our projects for the winter months to come. The fall theme lends itself perfectly to leafy borders, mini projects & embellishments. October is also a neat time to consider journaling about the many things we have to be thankful for!

FEST: This specific celebration is accompanied by gifts, prizes, and a feast of fun fall snacks. This year we enjoyed apple coffee cake, apple crisp, pumpkin cupcakes, caramel, candy corn, pumpkin dip, cheese dip, stromboli, hot mulled cider, and more.... (thanks for all the wonderful contributions) Hopefully no one left feeling hungry!

It was a pleasure to host Croptoberfest at our home. The highlight for me was the chance to catch up with like-minded friends & family members for this day long celebration. Let's not wait a whole year to do it again!
