CIJ Day 31: Christmas in July Crop!

Here are the pics from my party. All my scrapbooking buddies made it and were thankful for the time and effort put into the party. Getting a full day to block off for scrapbooking is a pretty big deal for us. Most of us don't like to pack and unpack our stuff for 3 or 4 hours, so full day crops are the way to go. I think we all enjoyed it so much, we might do it again soon. 

This is the cupcake and Secret Santa table. I had gifts to draw for and then we all brought scrapbooking supplies to do an elephant exchange with.

We also brought Christmas and Winter layouts to share with everyone. We hung them up around the room, where we could find room. Seeing some older photos of everyone was alot of fun. 

This was our cookie exchange table. We had alot of extra cookies left over, so we all went home with a nice size bag to share with the family. 

 We did manage to get some scrapbooking done.Some more then others...But that's how it is in the scrapbooking world. We talk, we eat and occasionally we scrapbook! LOL

Every even managed to show up in our Christmas color theme. Red, Pink and Green. Now Belinda took it one step father and wore her COLORFUL Christmas sweater with all our favorite Christmas colors! Now, let's note it was in the 90's, so it quickly came off!

I made a couple dinner salads for us all to eat later in the day and we all held out till 10pm. That left us with 11 of CIJ fun and it was all worth it.   Thanks everyone for following my blog this month!

CIJ Journal Entry Day 31! So long, farewell, it's time to say goodnight!!

Here's my last journal entry for the month. Yes, it's a day late, but that CIJ party yesterday wiped me out! So let's see....

31. How do you usually spend the day after Christmas? Do you have a tradition for that day? do you spend it -Shopping? at the movies? with family? traveling? We usually try to make it to at least Target, but usually I have to work. I'm not a huge day after Christmas shopper though. I usually wait a few days, then hit the sale racks!
