April completely snuck up on me, so hard to believe it's here already.

Okay, here's what Kelsey & I have planned for April!!

Theme: Using something that's been "collecting dust". Pull out those old stickers, chipboard, old paper that keeps getting pushed aside, etc. Or maybe it's those cricut markers so few of us have played with. Or those cricut carts we keep forgetting to use. Or those stacks of pages left unfinished in a corner. Whatever it is, this is a perfect time to spring clean and use those dust collectors.

Monthly activity: A post/scrap challenge - we've done those a few times and it's always alot of fun. So get ready to begin chatting & scrapping. We're still working on start date, but looking at possibly the 10th through the 30th.

Week long event: LOAD
Week long event dates: Tuesday April 24th - Monday April 30th.

Crop dates:
Thursday the 12th - Wednesday the 18th
Crop guest host: Brittanie
Post crop clean up: Thursday the 19th - Wednesday the 25th

LOTM submissions due Saturday the 7th

LOTM poll closes Thursday the 12th

Tuesday Technique/Tutorial every Tuesday

Fast Scrap Friday every Friday

Sketchy Saturday's every Saturday

I was about to PM you to ask you the theme so I can get thinking about this. Thankfully I'll be done sewing easter out fits by the crop so I'll get to participate again!

I look forward to seeing your easter outfits this year, Brittanie!!

Using those items collecting dust, just seemed to be a perfect theme for this time of the year. I look forward to seeing what we all do with the theme this month.

Is this a specific date range or just thru the month?

I definitely understand tired and how the brain doesn't connect the dots to well.

Okay to answer your questions -

the theme is a monthly theme. Not a requirement to use on every page or card, but another fun way to challenge ourselves to use items or a technique that we may not do that often. Previous monthly themes have been bling, punches, distressing, journaling.

Monthly Activity - post/scrap challenge. This is a fun one to do, and all that's needed is to get ready to chat & scrap and earn "points" for doing so. It's not one the crop guest host will coordinate, Kelsey will coordinate the counting, and everyone just has some fun and watch the board get busy. Here's some links to better describe it, since my tired brain isn't doing a good job of it.

Here's a link to the last one we did
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f1...nd-winner.html (Post/Scrap Challenge Score Board - and the winner is...)

and basic info on the points
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f1...enge-info.html (Post/Scrap Challenge Info!!)

Post Crop Clean up - nope not with the theme, just some posts with tips/reminders to help clean up our spaces after the crop.

I hope that helps, tired brain here to . . .
